    Schuyler, This event has happened in other places, but none so recent. We have been in Indianapolis for 12 years straight. We would absolutely love to figure out how to get URDB involved officially! Let's talk more.

    This is great! Love the fact that you did this for a charity. William, do you do this at other events? I'm the account manager URDB and would love to figure out how URDB could be officially involved in some live capacity.

    The event is known as Cardhalla, and we have been running it for 12 years now with 13 coming up in August! 3 days of straight building by anyone who want to help and it all leads to a mass destruction!
