Con Records

Our Cons are the primary way that we get together to celebrate our community. In these pages you will find the records containing both the official documents of con including as many of the planning documents as are available, what details are available regarding staffing, locations, and budget. Additionally any personal statements from either attendees or staff will be included. 

If you attended any of the cons prior to 2014 and have either their planning documents or personal reflections of the con please contact the board to add them to this list of information.
