Blake Perdue is working to bring a convention for gamers to Bremerton. And while he’s made significant headway, time is running out on his fundraising endeavor.

Here’s what Perdue, an ’07 graduate of Olympic High School, has done. He’s got a plan. He’s got a name (see picture). And he’s gotten Columbia Hospitality, the company that runs the Kitsap Conference Center, to hold for him July 5-6 for “Gamcon” in case he meets his fundraising goal on Kickstarter. And he’s already raised almost $6,000.

But he needs to be at $8,000 by Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Will he make it? Time will tell.
