One of our client events is ConCarolinas, a sci-fi convention that has been around for 15 years and is based out of Charlotte. ConCarolinas 2017 marks the return of ConCarolinas to the Hilton Charlotte University, the same hotel that MACE is held. We are glad they are returning to a very familiar venue to us. With that change comes a slight change to our gaming plans and space.
Guests include Jodi and Clint Black of PEG, so expect a nice turnout of Savage Worlds this year.
For those familiar with the space at the Hilton, we have been allocated Glenwaters and Lakeview. Both are great spaces, but we will have to be very strategic with our space management. We are going from one big 7200 sq ft space to two rooms that equate to about 4600 sq ft. Needless to say, managing that space based on the gaming turn out last year is going to be challenging but not impossible.
In 2017, we plan same kind of gaming as we have in the past with a strong focus on the games that would appeal to fandom attendees. I will still have a schedule and give opportunities for people to sign up through OGRe. There will be on-site registration.
If you want to participate in gaming (but not volunteer as a GM), we HIGHLY recommend registering early as the prices go up after March 5. Here are the prices.
|Until March 5||$40.00||Free per parent admittance|
|After March 5||$45.00||Free per parent admittance|
|At the Door||$50.00||Free per parent admittance|
GMs can propose games like usual through OGRe. For organized play, I am working on a coordinator for both PFS and D&D AL. If you want to run for either, we can manually activate you on OGRe to sign up as a GM once the schedule is in OGRe.
GM call will be sent out just after MACE West.
ConCarolinas is a Client Convention of JustUs Productions. They have hired JustUs to run their tabletop gaming track. Anything other questions should be directed to the Convention Committee of ConCarolinas. See their website for more information.
