Tiger Con is the dream of the Moody Air Force Base Comics and Anime Club.
Moody AFB is the home of the Flying Tigers, and so we have adopted that theme for our convention. Tiger Con is being put on by volunteers from Moody Air Force Base in collaboration with the Valdosta State University Anime Club.
The Moody Comics and Anime Club is dedicated to the morale, welfare, and recreation (MWR) of the Airmen and families of Moody AFB through recreational activities involving Anime, Comics, Cosplay and general geeky fun! We are also dedicated to forging a stronger bond between Moody and the surrounding community.
The con will be held at the Holiday Inn Conference Center, Valdosta, Georgia on April 14-15, 2018. Our confirmed guests include voice actor Richard Epcar and cosplay guest Haiden Hazard! If we can reach a stretch goal of $7000 we will also bring in voice actress Cristina Vee and cosplay guest Knightmage! Please help us make Tiger Con a reality!
Risks and challenges
The Moody Comics and Anime Club is brand new club, and we have a budget that you would expect a new club to have: small. But with your help, we can put on a fantastic con. Unfortunately, just selling tickets isn't enough. Booking venues and reserving equipment costs money up front. Next year, hopefully we can use the money from this con to pay for those things, but this year we need your help.
The con Chairman, Brian McAfee has chaired a convention before. He ran Protoculture Con, the convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the animated series Robotech. That event was a wonderful success, bringing together a total of 10 celebrity guests, an exciting dealer room, programming. contests and prizes. Now he is putting that experience into running Tiger Con, which will bring together the military, community, college, and hundreds of fans for two days of geeky fun in South Georgia.
And one more thing! To say thanks to those who keep us safe, Military and First Responders will get a 25% discount when tickets go on sale in October!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
