Baitcon 27 starts next Friday!
Registration will close at 6p.m. on Wednesday, June 21st .
There's no un-pre-registered attendance allowed, but we'd really like to see you, so please contact us before then if there's a chance you're coming but aren't registering for some reason or another.
Please be sure that you & anyone attending with you has shared any relevant dietary or medical allergy info with us by tomorrow.
Whether you are new to Baitcon or a seasoned attendee, please be sure you review the information on the following pages via the website (http://wp.baitcon.org/
) before you arrive. We'd like you to go look around and read more than just these, if possible, but at LEAST these. :)
-> What to Bring
-> Mosquitos, Ticks and (no) Bears, Oh My!
-> Take Tick Prevention Seriously
-> The Rules
You are welcome to arrive any time after 2p. on Friday.
Check out the Arrivals & Parking Information as well as Directions to Baitcon on the website.
The Abode has again requested a signed waiver of liability from all attendees. We will have these at the Welcome tent and you’ll be asked to read & sign one when you arrive.
We’ll also ask you to sign the Baitcon Book (in fact, I'll hector you mercilessly about it) – but that is just because we want to have an accurate headcount, and to read your awesome & witty comments, and I really like having all the past books as a souvenir.
Do you need a ride to or from Baitcon? Can you provide one? Sadly the ride-board's pretty much toast, so please post on DW, FB, Suspects, or similar, seeking or offering.
Want to figure out what is likely to be served for meals & snacks? We have a Menu posted on the website and it will be posted on site as well.
If you’ve shared allergy info with us, please know that we will be sure there are food choices that work for you at each meal.
Planning to make some ice cream? We sure hope so!
We would especially like to encourage you to look at some Prince-themed flavors. There's at least one Raspberry Sorbet being planned now, but Kimberly's certain you can come up with more purple fabulousness.
You can visit the Pre-Con Ice Cream Advice page if you need some pointers or the Flavor List from previous years if you want/need inspiration. (The flavor list is actually in need of major maintenance but there's still a lot of useful suggestions there.)
Are you wondering what sort of fun can be had at Baitcon? Well, as we’ve long said, Baitcon is what YOU make it. The site is wonderful and there will be more than 110 awesome folks of all ages around to help make all kinds of Merriment.
Last but not least, we could use a more volunteers for meal prep, meal service, as well as having a need for pot scrubbers. If you’re interested and available, please contact us via email before Wednesday or talk to Tamar on site.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via email to info dash 2017 at baitcon dot org ASAP. We’ll be reading & replying to email through Wednesday the 21st but after that we can’t guarantee a response as we’ll be rolling towards the mountain.
See you soon!
