  • Picnic:
    For the fifth year in a row, we will have our huge Saturday night picnic by the pool! We will once again be serving something completely different. Our declassified meal this year will be Indo-Pak food ranging from Mundane to Thermonuclear. Dal, Roti, Kebabs and Chicken Tikka are among the planned foods. Plenty for vegetarians and humanitarians!
  • Con/Video Suite:
    Five, count them, FIVE bread makers running continuously in our con suite this year. We will be churning out a loaf of fresh bread an hour, during con suite hours. There will be other munchies and a variety of fun training videos shown as well.
  • LARPing:
    Our crack training group is putting together a set of training simulations for you to sharpen your skills: “One Night at Jabba™’s”, a Star Wars® LARP; a possible Vampire® LARP; and we are pleased to announce, that a major NEW LARPing system may get its first public demonstration at our convention! More details as they become available. If you would like to volunteer to run a LARP, please e-mail Tad.

    This year we will have not only expanded our function space, but it will be available for expanded hours. For the first time we will have space all night on Friday! More importantly, we will have all the function space in the hotel on Saturday and Sunday!!! More room to larp, game, SMOG and SMOF!
