Charity Auction Announcement - Changes

It may be of interest that there are a couple of significant changes this year to the Charity Auction. Here is a breakdown of our changes.

• We’re going to have a better display space this year. We’re still in the Art Show/Director’s Hall, but won’t be hiding in the corner. We’ll be out in the middle of everything. We should not be hard to find. We’ll be the second best looking group in the room. We’re almost as good looking as the Art Show crew.

Donations Needed for Charity Auction

Charity Auction would like to announce that we have a slight problem. Last year, we were able to raise almost $2,900 for Amyloidosis Research at the Mayo Clinic during the auction, by selling almost EVERY SINGLE ITEM we had. This includes all the new donations, and everything we had in storage.

“How is this a problem?” you might ask. Well, for the 2017 Charity Auction, we’ve got nothing left to sell. We do have a few promises for some really nice items, but it won’t be enough. We’ll need more and that’s where you all come in. We need donations.

Is your room a Party Room?

The hotel has an 11:00 PM quiet time. To avoid noise complaints last year, we designated a party floor. That worked out well, so we will be doing this again.

If you know you are going to have people in your room for a small party, or you want to avoid having to be quiet after 11, please email us at jordancon@jordancon.org with your confirmation number so we can put you on the party floor so you won't have to deal with hotel security about the noise complaints.

GoH Book Release!

A new book release from our author Guest of Honor, Charles Gannon is a pre-JordanCon treat! This is the fourth book in the Caine Riordan sci-fi series, and you will definitely want to read it if you want to be all caught up by April.

Check it out here!

Overflow Hotel Available

If you were unable to get a room at the host hotel before the room block sold out, we have an overflow block set up at a hotel nearby.

You can reserve your room by clicking here. All rooms in our block are $94 a night, plus taxes. Last day to reserve is: 4/7/17

Overflow Hotel Address:

Fairfield Inn & Suites Atlanta Perimeter Center

Main Hotel Sold Out

JordanCon 9 has sold out the Marriott!!!! We just got word this morning that our block is full and so is the hotel.
Our Con Chairs will be working on identifying an overflow hotel over the next week and will hopefully have an update soon. Last year we used the Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites which is a 9 minute walk away from the main hotel.
Please stay tuned here for information on the overflow hotel once those arrangements have been completed.
