Penguicon 2015

Penguicon 2015
April 24th-26th

This excerpt is directly from the website:

Penguicon is a three-day event where we all learn from each other (as well as from our Guests of Honor) about hacking, building sci-fi universes, soldering, painting miniatures, gaming, coding, music, incredible costumes, and more.

It is an event for mainly sci-fi and OpenSource. However, this is a big hang out for ALL areas of the geek/nerd community. What better way to meet people who wave the geek/nerd flag? It is a convention tailored mainly for adults even though kids are welcome. Please keep that in mind. Mark it on your calendar.

Back to the ConFusion

Back to the ConFusion, the 41st ConFusion by name and 42nd annual January gathering (starting with the AA Realx-I-Con in 1974), is a go! 2015 looks to be an exciting year–it will be the year that Marty McFly really traveled to in Back to the Future II, whatever that Facebook meme says, so look out for those hoverboards, they must be right around the corner. (No, seriously, look out!) We’re anticipating another excellent con, with the first-time appearance of author Karen Lord, researcher Dr. Cynthia Chestek, and gaming gurus Monte Cook & Shanna Germain. We’ll also welcome back Heather Dale, now performing as our Music Guest of Honor. And then there’s Aaron Thul, longtime fan and conrunner, returning after two years away as our Fan Guest of Honor. Please do join us, and we hope to see you there in January!
