It's a Form For All!
August 12, 2005 - No matter what your interest in Con of the North, we have a form for you! If you'd like to run a game at Con of the North, head on over to the Judging page and grab this year's Judge Packet and/or Web Form. If just playing games is more your style, then stop by the Registration page and grab an Early Prereg Form. For our great vendors and sponsors, the Vendor Space and Event Book Advertising forms are now available on the Sponsors page. As always, we recommend updating your version of Adobe Reader before using them!
New Judge Option: Theme Track Rooms
August 12, 2005 - If you or your GMing group run similar games for most of the convention and you'd like a bit quieter area to run in, we have a deal for you! Submit your games in a group as a Theme Track and you could be running them in the relative quiet of a converted sleeping room on the same floor as the convention. If you're interested, head to the Theme Track entry on the Judging page for all the details.
New Group Option: Freely Assigned Tables
August 12, 2005 - We also have a new option for our larger groups! If your group typically runs a number of events located near each other that either vary in size or in specific event being run, ask us about setting up a group HQ instead of scheduling your group's tables. We'll give you a number of tables for the weekend and you can arrange them as needed for your events! We hope to have more information posted on the website soon; for now send an email to email@example.com if you are interested.
Judge Premium Policy Change
August 12, 2005 - One of the little "thank-you" rewards that Con of the North gives to our judges is either $5 off their registration or a T-Shirt. In the past we gave this to anyone who ran an event at CotN. Starting this year your event must be in the Events Book in order to receive this premium. Make sure you get your forms in on time! If you have any questions, ask on the Yahoo! Group or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome the Privacy Statement
July 12, 2005 - Con of the North now has a Privacy Statement on the About page. As we do collect your personal information, we felt we should have one if only to reassure everyone that we don't sell our mailing list. Let us know if you have any questions.
Magnetron Meeting Moves
June 6, 2005 - Next week's Magnetron Meeting will be at the Beechers', not at Nate's. The major topic of discussion will be the Time Slot System: pros and cons of the current one, potential tweaks to it, and alternatives like letting events start and end on any even hour. Come out and share your thoughts!
Registration Price Changes
June 6, 2005 - It's been 6 years since CotN's prices have changed, but with the move to a nicer hotel has come a slight price adjustment. All registration prices have been raised $2, giving a prereg price of $25 and an onsite weekend price of $37. The full price list is available on the Registration page.
Vendor and Advertising Prices Posted
June 6, 2005 - The prices for Vendor spaces and Advertising in the Events Book have been posted on the Sponsors page. They are unchanged from last year. Forms will be available soon.
