About this project

WagonCon 2017!  

The Best "Dam" Gaming Convention in the Columbia Gorge!  Year Two!

This year, the crazy fools who brought you WagonCon 2016 will be doing it again! 

 All of us really hope you will join us May 5th, 6th and 7th in The Dalles, Oregon for WagonCon 2017!

Last year WagonCon came to The Dalles, Oregon.  It was a blast!  Our attendance was a solid 100 people!  Fun was had by all!  This year we are looking to add another 50 people, if not double to 200.

The format will be very similar, but we are looking to spice a few things this year with a new Calendar system, more games, and perhaps a few contests!

And of course...

Now with more 100% Wagons!   

Risks and challenges

Gaming Conventions have a great deal of hidden costs, but the largest up front costs are the venue.

The WagonCon 2017 Kickstarter has three main goals:

1. That all of the people who enjoyed WagonCon 2016 are able to return and enjoy WagonCon 2017!

2. Assist in offsetting the costs of holding a convention!

3. Bring a few VIPs and Vendors to WagonCon this year. We have two guest GMs on board, a few vendors and even perhaps a special musical event.

The first two are fairly understandable, the third item is our stretch this year. We want to take the convention up to level 2. For us, we need vendors for that and a few special VIPs.

In gamer terms, we think we gained enough experience points to get to Level 2. Will you help us with this Kickstarter to ensure we did?

Stretch Goals:
$1500 we will include a WagonCon Branded Slinky for all Kickstarter members.

$2000 all Badge Holders will gain free access to the Doubleclicks Concert on Friday night.

Add-ons:
WagonCon T-Shirt $15.00
WagonCon Hoodie $30.00
WagonCon Hydro-Flask $30.00
