Ghost Tour Details

Our Guest of Honor for JordanCon V is Seanan McGuire, who writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance. We thought it might be fun if we organized a group to take advantage of the Roswell Ghost Tour. The last day to register for this is April 2nd, 2013. (Registration for this is closed)

We have booked a private tour for Thursday, April 18th, 2013. The hotel shuttle will leave at 8:30PM to ensure enough travel time to arrive by 9PM. The tour lasts at least 2 hours but only covers a mile, so it's not a very strenuous walk.

Update for Charity Events

Charity Auction

It’s that time of the Con again to open your hearts and wallets to give to a very worthy cause and get some cool stuff in the process. This year, the Board of Directors at JordanCon has agreed that all proceeds from our Charity Auction will be donated to the family of David Farland to assist with the medical bills for his son Ben. Procedures for this year’s auction will be the same as last year. If you missed it or need a refresher, here they are:

  • Items will be spread out on several tables around the room to create more visibility.

Wolverton Cause

JordanCon believes in supporting good causes. Over the past 4 years of our existence, and going into our fifth active year we’ve supported the Mayo Clinic by helping them raise funds. With events like our Silent Auctions, Poker Tournaments, and Art Shows we’ve done our absolute best to try and do more.

Silent Auction proceeds to go to Wolverton family

JordanCon was very sad to learn that David Farland (AKA David Wolverton) would no longer be appearing at JordanCon this year and even sadder to learn that it was because his son, Ben, was in a life threatening accident. The JordanCon board of directors met this evening and all members present voted unanimously to donate the entire proceeds of our annual charity auction on Saturday night to the Wolverton family to offset Ben's astronomical medical bills.

The Hugo Nominations

Did ya'll see the Hugo nominations earlier today? Our Guest of Honor Seanan McGuire was nominated for FIVE Hugos this year! And two of our Program Participants, Brandon Sanderson and Toni Weisskopf were nominated as well! We're so excited to have so many talented authors and editors with us at JordanCon this year.

Seanan now holds the record for the most appearances on the Hugo ballot in a single year and the first person to be nominated for a self published work.

Overflow Room Block Sold Out!

The La Quinta Inn JordanCon room block is full.

Unfortunately they will not add any more rooms to our block, BUT they still have hotel rooms available at the following rates: $62, $52, and $55 for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

This is still cheaper than us getting the Holiday Inn as an overflow as their rate is $79 per night.

I apologize that I could not do more. I will see if I can find more accommodations but distance is going to be a factor.

A Letter from our Chair

As the Chair of DeepSouthCon 51, I have the distinct pleasure of administering the site selection for DeepSouthCon 53, to be held in 2015. If any convention, club, or rag tag band of merry men wants to submit for it, this is the time to let me know. From the DSC by laws:

Who got in A Memory of Light?

Did you miss the notification, or think you know who someone is?
