2023 Update!

After finally talking to the Casino, they let me know that they are willing to commit to a date next year until January.

The reason being they are debating on refurbishing the room we used.

So what to do now? I can go forward with a location TBA but I don’t think that’s wise. So I think I will go forward with ticket sales starting when I know the venue.

Right now I am thinking this schedule:

Friday 5PM-MIdnight

Saturday 8AM-Midnight

Sunday will be for vendors to pack up.

Pricing

This is the most difficult thing. The space is available just for you the attendee. You can play ANYTHING you want. That space costs a whole lotta money though.

If cost is lowered, day rates added, more people must attend in order just to break even.

I would really like to stay around $50 for the weekend and make Sunday free. However Saturday is the biggest day, maybe $30 for it?

NashCon has an interesting payment structure. You can pay just to enter tournaments and that includes the cost of entering the convention. I am not sure how this system works, could cover prize support?

Also I would love to have a cheaper rate available for pre-orders so that the convention can pay for itself.

This is the thing that truly drives me nuts, I just want to break even and have the con paid for with its own funds a month before the convention.

I am working really hard on things to interest people but I really think its going to have to be finding a cheaper venue. I had to pay out $1200 just for security. (that is 24 weekend passes)
