2004 - 2016 in Kansas City

R.I.P. Pure Gaming Satisfaction

BobCon is just around the corner and it is time to prepare!

BobCon 2011Seriously, BobCon is just over a month away (Sept 30 - Oct 2) and preparations for the weekend of fun have begun. Over the next several weeks (okay, five), you will probably receive emails galore (updates, reminders, announcements, etc.). We will try to keep them to a minimum but we want you to be as informed as possible.

The Event Schedule is Live

The initial 2011 Event Schedule is now online and ready for your planning perusal. Our event coordinator, Dave Phillips, has done another great job of lining up events for the weekend. But the list isn’t final – we want, nay need, even more events. That is where you come in! Run an adventure in your favorite role-playing system or simply make sure there is a game of <insert favorite game here> on the schedule. This convention is about playing the games you want to play. Check out the BobCon Game Library to see what we have available if you need any ideas.

You can Submit Events right now! Event submission will be taken through September 16, but don’t wait.

RSVP, Registration and Sign-ups

Along with the Events Page, the RSVP form is also live today. Whether you are able to attend this year's convention or not, we ask you take a minute to fill it out. It helps us to know how many attendees we can expect. It also important to know why those of you who are unable attend this year can't, so we can make every effort to make future events as accessible as possible (just use the "comments" section).

Now that the events are posted you might ask, "When can I sign up so that I don't miss out on getting into Candyland?" The Event Sign-up form should go live September 2. A reminder will be sent out that weekend, too.

As far as registration for this year's convention, the initial RSVP is all we need. With the help of last year’s Game Auction and our Summer Texas Hold’em Tournament, we were able to keep admission for BobCon to only $5 per day or $10 for the whole weekend. You can use the donation button on the Website to pay ahead of time (see Donate button on the right side column). We are also happy to accept any additional donations – anything you contribute to BobCon is much appreciated!

Out of Town Guests

It looks like we will have several out-of-town attendees again this year. It is great to have enough interest in BobCon to be able to draw from outside the local area. This year we were able to avoid NASCAR Weekend at the Kansas Speedway, which means local hotels should be easier to book. Don’t wait, though. If you need help arranging lodging, give me a call (Bob's cell 913-669-5768). We have many options and no one will be left out in the cold (nor have to pay ridiculous prices). The sooner I hear from you, the better.


The BobCon Council has been working hard to make BobCon 2011 another great weekend. We look forward to seeing you all there!
