We have another wonderful sponsor to introduce to you today – The Gearbox Union. Read on to find out more about them!
1. What’s the name of your site, and what is it about? Where did the name come from?
The name of our website is The Gearbox Union and our goal is to entertain people with our ridiculous antics as well as help make the world a better place through volunteering/charity. Our name was inspired by our home town Altoona, PA which was historically based around the railroad.
The first spark of the Gearbox Union happened when we wanted some way to meet/organize all the local geeks that would want to play board games on a regular basis, since it felt like trying to get our little group of friends together at the same time to play a game was a bit frustrating.
3. Who are your geek role models?
Wil Wheaton, Marie Curie, Steve Wozniak, Nikola Tesla, Felicia Day
4. Who is your biggest supporter(s) and cheerleader(s) in your life?
Our families and the fans of the GBU, the Gearboxers!
Never be afraid to chase your dreams. If you want to start a community, then do it. It doesn’t matter if you start with three people sitting on a couch or twenty people in a classroom, the best thing you can do is take that first step.
Being able to help people. We’re pretty ridiculous and have a lot of fun with everything we do with the Gearbox Union, but at the heart of it is that making silly fools of ourselves gives us the opportunity to make the world a better place.
Fallout, Firefly, video/tabletop games, Doctor Who, Dagorhir
That the IGGPPC is bringing together so many people into an amazing community of awesome geeks that are making life long friends.
Thanks Gearbox Union!
