Here is the spiel that got posted around LiveJournal a whole bunch today
Pi-Con is a small, lively, diverse Science Fiction and Fantasy convention taking place August 20th-22nd, 2010, in Enfield, CT, USA. We have lots of panels on a wide range of fannish topics, events including live music concerts, filking, gaming of all sorts (LARPs, table-top, board games, and video games), vendors, and much much more. Just think of us as your summertime Mini-Arisia :)
This year we have Author Robert J. Sawyer as our Guest of Honor, Webcomics Guest of Honor Rob Balder, and Guest of Awesome Hugh Casey.
Hotel Reservations for the Pi-Con Room Block are now open! However, due to technical issues at the hotel, our room block and the Pi-Con discount rate is not available for on-line booking.
Rooms come equipped with a microwave and mini-fridge and are $99 a night this year (that's down from last year, and below their current advanced-purchase super-saver rate).
Please call 860-741-2211 to make your room reservation today and make sure to tell them you are with Pi-Con!
Feel free to ask questions, and all special requests, inquiries, and if you are planning on hosting a party (public or private) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
More information about pi-con, including membership registration, how to sign up to be a vendor, and flyers for download can be found at our website www.pi-con.org
