Updates to schedule, accommodation, food, memberships, Fans Funding Fans and more!

Booking updates:

We will be closing accommodation bookings tomorrow night. All of the large motel style rooms have sold out, but there are plenty of student sized rooms still available (including doubles). All accommodation comes with breakfast.

We are also closing pre-booking of breakfast passes for people with no accommodation, but who like breakfast, on Thursday. No breakfast passes will be available for purchase at the convention itself as catering must be pre-arranged.

We will be closing pre-bookings and the Deluxe membership offer on Thursday night. T-shirts have sold like crazy this year, so if you don’t pre-order we may not be able to guarantee that we made enough in your size.

After Thursday night, the only place to buy a membership will be at the door on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. We will be able to process credit cards on site, although it is slow so the front-of-house team would really appreciate it if you could bring cash.

All pre-booking can be done at https://genghiscon.eventsmart.com/

Fans Funding Fans -Update-

Fans Funding Fans Announcement!

As you might remember from our blog back in June, GenghisCon has been raising money for an initiative called “Fans Funding Fans” (the link is here)

“Fans funding fans” was inspired by the various convention fan funds (there is a pretty great index here, ozfanfunds.com/) and “Hackers Helping Hackers” (hackershelpinghackers.com, another grass roots convention initiative), to keep science fiction, fantasy and gaming events accessible to all fans.

We are now accepting nominations for the recipients of around ten Full Weekend memberships and/or transport assistance for any person who may not otherwise be able to make it to the convention this year. We are doing this because Accessibility and Equity are at the core of everything the convention stands for and we want to do everything we can to get the whole community there (or as much of it as we can).

Nominate here: https://goo.gl/forms/Jlc4FrO1ZRxwiCAF3

All nominations are strictly confidential.

Draft schedule

Hey everyone! Here is the new draft of the convention schedule. We have rearranged a few things to suit the availability of our wonderful panelists.

If you are a panelist and haven’t seen your panelist notification yet, let us know by email at committee2018@genghiscon.org. If you are running a workshop or game, you should see your notification extremely soon.
