Yorke Peninsula Council held its popular YorKON Games Convention on Saturday and Sunday, 23 and 24 April, after a pause due to Covid-19.
YorKON provides the local community, especially young people and their families, with the unique opportunity to engage in a fun and free social games event.
The convention is for all ages, with the exception of a secure 15+ session (content rated as PG and M classifications), held on both days.
“Yorke Peninsula Council was excited to hold its first YorKON Games Convention since the Covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020,” Mayor Darren Braund said.
“The convention was a hit with young people and their families and included free play computer and retro games, arcade games, workshops, tournaments, table top games and a costume-making competition.
“Maitland Markets also got involved this year and offered attendees a range of local art, delicious food, produce, food, jewellery, crafts and more.
“Council would like to thank its partners including Team AvCon, Copper Coast Table Top Gamers, Retrospekt, Maitland and District Progress Association, Little Adventurer, Southern Dewback Garrison – 501st Legion, Rebel Legion Ryloth Base, Cold Creature Art, Ben’s IT Communications, Nankivell IT and Yorke Solar.”
