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:
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.
Below is our pricing for memberships bought at the door.
Friday Only: $20
Saturday Only: $35
Sunday Only: $20
Saturday & Sunday Only: $50
Full Weekend: $65
We accept cash, personal check, or credit (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and Amex).
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.
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:
