Well, I hope everyone has been keeping an eye on that calendar, because FORTcon is fast approaching. In less than five months, I hope to see you all in Chicago.
We have a few updates to share to help you with your travel plans. Soon, we will release an itinerary of events.
Although we hoped to avoid it, we will have to require a nominal registration fee from all participants and guests. We decided that this would be necessary for two important reasons:
1.) To help offset the costs of the reception for Saturday night.
2.) To help us get an accurate count of who will be attending.
We tried to keep the fee reasonably affordable at $15 per person. Reality TV contestants who are willing to attend will be exempt from this fee.
Registration fees can be paid via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you donít have access or would prefer not to use Paypal, please contact John via email at email@example.com for alternate payment methods. Whichever method you prefer, please include your name and FORT username so we can verify your attendance. If anyone has any further questions, feel free to pm me or contact me at the fortcon address above.
Deposits at the hotel will have to be paid within weeks, so we are hoping that anyone who is serious about attending will send in their fees as soon as they are able to do so. Thank you all so much for your patience as we have been ironing out these details.
One more note. We are finalizing contracts for our "preferred hotel", and the location of our general reception areas. We expect to be able to announce this information next week. We will be able to offer slightly reduced hotel rates at that time.
See everyone in October!
