Con-Gregate 2017 Gaming Update
One of our client events is a sci-fi con called ConGregate held in High Point, run by among others, James and Tera Fullbright of StellarCon fame. As the banner above says, the con is July 14 to 16 2017. They have really worked hard trying bring a great fandom event back to the area, and this year they have Deep South Con as well. It is held in the High Point Radisson, where StellarCon used to be. They have a wide variety of sci-fi events, panels, and costuming.

For the past 3 years, they have entrusted us with their gaming programming. They have put a lot of faith in our ability to bring good gaming to a new con in the middle of the summer and for the past 3 years, we have had modest success. In 2017, we plan to do that with a little shift towards more casual gaming and open play. I will still have a schedule and give opportunities for people to sign up through OGRe, but the GMs will be responsible for keeping track of their pre-registered players and where their games are. There will not be on-site registration, the GMs will have to handle their own table mustering.
If you want to participate in gaming (but not volunteer as a GM), we HIGHLY recommend registering early as the prices go up after June 10. Here are the prices.
|Reg Date||Adult||Youth *|
|Until June 10||$35.00||$20.00|
|June 11 – July 4||$40.00||$25.00|
|At the Door||$50.00||$30.00|
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 around mid May, after the ConCarolinas schedule settles in.
