On July 22, 2007, Eli Neiburger closed the first day of presentations by sharing the emotional and social impact the Ann Arbor District Library's gaming tournaments have had on teens, parents, families, and even 78-year old military veterans. The Payoff, Up Close and Personal, included some powerful video of the participants themselves, and then Eli thrilled the crowd by announcing the GT System.
