Con Date was created by ScketreWhisp
I am not sure why people find it do hard to figure out what dates the Con is each year.

It has always been the FIRST Thursday of June.

So in 2017 that will be June 1st - June 4th

(don't let the Wed night Pre-Con-Get-It-On confuse you, it's not even part of the Con...)

Too much booze over the years, at least in my case. ;)

Well, people see the con "starting" on Wed night, and they think that's the beginning of the con (we do have games listed you can sign up for, so it's not like the people saying this are stupid). It is "part of the con" you just don't need a ticket to attend (as in, if the con wasn't at the hotel, it wouldn't be at the hotel, so it's definitely con-sponsored).

Also, the con nearly always starts the first weekend in June except for certain years (2018 and 2019 will be the years when it starts the 2nd week in June)

So, please tell people to always come on the first weekend so in 2018 and 2019 they'll show up on the wrong date and we'll have more room without them...

Thus once again

The Con is ALWAYS the first Thursday of June... don't ever think it's the first weekend of June, or like Mike, you may not be there in 2018 or 2019 when the rest of are.

And the Pre-Con-Get-It-On requires no purchase to attend, so it's not part of the Con ... might be Con sponsored, as are the GameDays at the warehouse, but it is not part of the Con so don't let Mike confuse you...

The Con starts the first Thursday of June. If you can remember that simple sentence, you 'll always arrive at the Con and actually see people playing games. Trying to guess weekends, or what Wednesday might be involved, might have you there too soon or too late.
