When you really think about it, August 5th – 8th is really not that far away. At least this is what flutters through the head of a regular Gencon attendee the moment they start their commute back home on the last day of the show. We here at Pixels and Grids are no different. In the words of PNG’s own David Reid, there simply isn’t enough time when you’re at the convention. While the dates of the actual show have been available since before GC ‘09 opened it’s doors, registration for things such as your badge, housing block, and events had yet to be announced… until yesterday! Ripped from the official forums (courtesy of forum moderator Marimacc) and with some confirmation from the Gencon Facebook fan page, the dates are as follows:
Badge Pre-Registration – Sunday, January 24, 2010 at 12:00 noon (Eastern).
Housing – Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 12:00 noon (Eastern).
Event Pre-Registration – Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 12:00 noon (Eastern).
Both Badge and Event Pre-Registration will end at 11:59 pm (Eastern) on June 19, 2010.
EXTENDED Badge and Event Registration will remain open online at full price beginning June 20, 2010. More information will be coming soon!
No dates for event submissions yet, but expect it soon.
EDIT: Gencon posted the dates for 2010 event submission here. It starts January 13th (this wednesday) and will go in three phases ending on March 12th. Now get out there and submit some events so I can play in your games!
