***2018 CONVENTION INFO***
This year's convention (if we meet our minimum) will again be held at the Host in Lancaster, Pa. The Host is undergoing renovation, and the rooms should all be upgraded by the time our convention rolls around (most already have upgraded bathrooms).
I have broken out the rewards to allow more options for people (e.g. the special image is now being offered at other levels too).
Last year's coin was a great success, so we are rolling out another coin for this year. The image is being worked by Bradley Warnes and the coin mock-up will be posted as soon as it is available.
The convention coin will be for the Solomani Rule of Man. It will be a 2" coin. The Rule of Man image below is the basis which the coin will be designed from. The obverse is as shown..the reverse will have the Terran Federation symbol, defaced with the 2018 Travellercon symbol.
This year’s special image will again be done by Bradley Warnes. Examples of his work can be found here:
After the Kickstarter closes, I'll send you an email with your attendance info. Please let me know if you are going to be refereeing or only participating.
Only 12 images will be printed. Once the total rewarded reaches 12 (across all image rewards) the image rewards will be closed.
***AT THE DOOR PRICES***
At the door prices are as follows:
$40 for the weekend
$30 for Saturday
$25 for Friday/Sunday
It always pays to preregister :0)
The room rates include the cost of your room plus a portion to help offset the cost of the convention room bill. Every dollar counts for us. If we don't meet our minimum, we are hit with a steep hotel bill. Yes, you can probably find the room rate cheaper on places like Expedia...but we don't receive credit when you book through those sites. If you want to help us keep the convention going, please book directly with the hotel.
Standard Room: $132 (Single) $157 (Double) $182 (Triple)
King Suite: $207
Host Room Rates do not include the breakfast. The breakfast is still available for purchase.
The rooms will open June 1. You will need to make your hotel reservations no later than August 30.
Risks and challenges
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.
