Auction details and new form
The Auction is a great place to get rid of your old games and pick up some new ones for a great deal. **Please note we have a new auction sheet for you to use this year. Since the auction is growing larger each year, we are making some changes to ensure everyone gets an opportunity to get some items through.
As always our canteen will be open during the entire convention as a place to pick up a drink or some snack. AND this year we’ll be joined by Chez Angela who will have coffee, pastries and other treats available for purchase.
PrairieCon is heading to the Summer Fair, and we are looking for a few good volunteers to help introduce families and kids to PrairieCon and some board games that aren’t Monopoly!
In addition to sharing the gift of gaming at the Summer Fair, you will also get free admission! So, you get to play some games, get access to rides after your shift and the best part is, you get access to mini-doughnuts without having to pay to get past the gate!
We only have six tickets to give out though, so let us know right away if you want to volunteer!
PLUS, on top of all that, volunteering at the fair will count as a slot toward PrairieCon convention volunteer incentives!
After only a few days of registration, the PrairieCon XL D&D Tournament is almost full! Saturday is completely sold out, and there are only ten spots remaining on Sunday (enough for two more teams). If you are hoping to play, don’t delay!
Just one final reminder to all of the team captains out there – please email me your team roster prior to the event so that I can ensure that your team gets to play together. If you can’t quite recruit the full five members for your team, you are welcome to sign up as a smaller team and we will supplement your ranks with folks who have signed up as individuals. If you have a friend you want to play with, that is fine as well – just let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate your request! No guarantees, of course, because math is a cruel mistress.
Thanks to all of the 40 players who have signed up thus far. I am delighted to see such enthusiasm for the event. If you have any questions, or wish to register a team, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As further thanks, please enjoy the last two character portraits by Alyssa Fraser:
