Alright everyone - TravellerconUSA 2014 was a great success...and it's all thanks in no small part to the dedication of our attendees (aka. friends). So, since the Kickstarter got the convention going last year, we're using it again this year (and all years going forward) to help us fund TravellerconUSA.
*2015 CONVENTION INFO*
This year's convention (if we meet our minimum) will again be held at the Host in Lancaster, Pa.
***THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE TO THE ARTISTS FOR THIS YEAR'S KICKSTARTER IMAGE***
Due to a series of schedule conflicts, Luca Oleastri is not able to do our image. We have instead contracted Bradley Warnes. Brad is a fantastic artist, and has been featured many times on John Watt's Gypsy Knights expansions. Examples of his work can be found here:
Brad will also be doing an exclusive image for us.
Once you pledge, I'll send you an email with your attendance info and if you are going to be refereeing or only participating.
If we hit our minimum amount in the Kickstarter, we will hold the convention. Please be aware that once the fund closes, and the convention process begins, we are financially unable to refund anyone's pledge. This is because the money (what remains after the required Kickstarter fees are taken) gets immediately earmarked for convention expenses. However, if you submit a pledge, and then can't attend, you will still receive your reward (at a minimum, you will receive a con book if, for example, your pledge is for a convention pass). I hope this will not dissuade anyone from pledging.
I wrote the incorrect at-the-door prices in the rewards area. At the door prices are as follows:
$40 for the weekend
$30 for Saturday
$25 for Friday/Sunday
It always pays to preregister :0)
Standard Room: $94
Double Room: $104
Triple Room: $114
Quad Room: $124
King Suite: $164
All prices come with a breakfast buffet (see below) and do not include taxes.
NOTE: if you want the room without the breakfast, subtract $10 from the price.
Host Room Rates Including a Full American Hot Breakfast Buffet
Hot Breakfast Buffet: Assorted Chilled Fruit Juices, Assorted Hot & Cold Cereals, Fresh Fruit, Fresh Scrambled Eggs, Crisp Bacon & Country Sausage, Amish Scrapple & Chipped Beef, Home Fried Potatoes, Waffles, Pancakes or French Toast with Warm Maple Favored Syrup, Baskets of Breakfast Pastries & Biscuits, Fruit Preserves & Sweet Butter, Freshly Brewed Colombian Coffee and a Selection of Imported & Herbal Teas (Served in our Vistas Breakfast Room 6:30AM – 10:30AM)
Risks and challenges
Of course, if the Host should suddenly not exist (knock on wood), everyone will receive a full refund for any money they have pledged here, or submitted through Paypal.
That being said, the Lancaster Host is a VERY stable hotel. They host other conventions several times a year...and, as luck would have it, we know the head of Sales...so we are very confident that this year's con would go off there without a hitch.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
