|Come get your game on at Trinoc-coN this weekend in Durham
||[Jul. 23rd, 2008|12:59 pm]
Gaming schedule for this weekend's Trinoc-coN is here:|
Main con website is here:
This year's Guest of Honor is Catherine Asaro, Nebula award-winning author of the Skolian Saga, "The Veiled Web," "Sunrise Alley," "Alpha," etc. Other guests include Baen Books' Senior Editor Hank Davis, bud_webster, Allen Wold, and more. A full guest list is available at: http://www.trinoc-con.org/guests.htm.
The Crestwood is an all-suites property near the corner of the intersection of Highways 54 and 55, just off I-40 at exit 278 in Durham/RTP. It's very suited for the more laid-back programming at this year's con, with a lovely outdoor courtyard area and swimming pool.
The con hotel is now sold out; here are some numbers for the two closest hotels:
Marriott Courtyard: 919-484-2900
Homestead: 919-544 9991
Note that if you have mobility issues, or just don't like doing a lot of walking outside in the typical Southern summer heat, the Marriott is across Hwy. 54 (diagonally behind the Chick-Fil-A), while Homestead is on the same side of the road.
Register for the con here: http://www.trinoc-con.org/registration.htm.
Pre-reg is open until Wednesday night, tonight, 7/23, so you still have time to do that.
Official con questions can go to to these folks: laminahospes, loke_dogg, and pope_j_rod.
I know it's late notice, but I hope some of you will still be able to attend.
BTW, if you've not read any Catherine Asaro before, you can read and download the first novel in the Skolian saga, Primary Inversion, from the Baen Free Library, here:
