Kirby Fanfest (September 1st – September 3rd)
I will be hosting TheSpeedGamers 2nd Fanfest to finish off the Summer; revolving around our Superstar from Dreamland, Kirby! Currently this there is just an interest thread, which will run until the Pokemon Marathon begins. Make sure if you’re interested in the idea, that you post about it! I will kill the idea if it does not receive enough support. The fanfest, if it is run, will feature the creativity of the community while celebrating our favorite pink ball~
I have a few more announcements to post in the upcoming weeks, stay tuned for the next CM Report! There are so many things I have to say that I couldn’t fit it all in one post.
As always, if you have any event ideas, make sure to post in the Events Suggestion Box!
Any concerns, comments or questions can go to my inbox. I’ll take any feedback, positive or negative.
Lots of love to you all and we’ll see you in the forums~
