SHareCon registration now OPEN!
YES! SHareCon 2016 is happening this October 14-17 in Laurel, Maryland! We'll be planning con activities soon, but I wanted to let everyone know you can register for the con AND reserve your hotel room now.
Membership comes in assorted flavors: full attending (all four days), single day attending, and supporting. If you are interested in full attending membership, the earlier you register, the cheaper it is. Also, please note membership is limited due to the size of the meeting space, so that gives you two good reasons to register early. On the SHareCon website, click on the "Register" tab to sign up for the con.
We have an online link to facilitate your hotel registration: Share CON Hotel. You can also register through the SHareCon website; click on the "Hotel" tab. When you're on the Hotel website, note the "CON" designation under "GROUP". If you need additional help obtaining a room, let me know. The con rate is good for an entire week for anyone interested in sightseeing in Washington or Baltimore before or after the con. (Please do not register through a third party offer or internet search. SHareCon will not get credit for those rooms, and if we don't meet our quota, we'll suffer an expensive penalty.)
Most of us will be on the 1st and 2nd floor of the hotel. First floor rooms all have a single king bed with a sleeper sofa, and a number of these rooms are for handicapped guests. So if you need a handicap room, please indicate this so we can get the right people in the right rooms. (I believe there are some handicap rooms on the second floor as well.) First floor rooms are across from the con space, so you'll have a short walk to all the fun, but there may be noise. (We have reserved these rooms for con attendees specifically to eliminate complaints by other guests. We play late.) However, if you need two queen beds or prefer a quieter space, don't hesitate to ask for what you need.
Any other questions, feel free to ask here or write me directly at flamingoslim at verizon dot net. Looking forward to seeing you SHareCon 2016.
