Announcing the First Annual Sleuther's Convention:

SLEUTHCON I

Who? You
When? June 15-17, 2007
Where? Best Western Lakeside, Orlando (Kissimmee), FL
What? The cost for attending will be $125. This does not include your room, but does include meals (Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday) and activities. Rooms will be $69.00 per night booked in advance through the hotel. Simply tell the booking agent that you are attending SleuthCon I.

Activities/Events:

The evening of June 15th will essentially be a chance for people to get checked in and organized. It will also serve as a time for introducing ourselves to each other.

Saturday the 16th will be the main day of activities including a treasure hunt and concluding with a mystery dinner theater. There will be door prizes as well as other prize categories to be announced, such as farthest distance traveled to attend. Sunday will conclude the event with breakfast and gathering in the meeting room to hand out the last prizes and say our farewells.

As the event approaches I will have more detail on activities and prizes. I highly recommend booking early as the rooms will fill fast. Comments and suggestions will be duly noted and possibly used. :)

Hotel info is here:

It is best to call them as you will need to tell them you are attending SleuthCon I to get the reduced rate.

We will have it set up soon to take payments to reserve your spot at the convention. I will update here as soon as I have the particulars.

Please remember folks, you need to register your rooms soon as the deadline for getting the event rate is fast approaching. (As is SleuthCon I itself!!! :D ) Currently the deadline is Monday, May 14th. If enough people register, the deadline will be extended to June 1st.

OH! Almost forgot... Mystery Dinner Theatres rather issued a challenge :D A subtle one, but a challenge none the less. I was told that very few people EVER actually solve their mysteries. He added, "But, your people are used to solving mysteries, so I imagine you might do a little better." I don't know about you, but that seems rather like a challenge to me. :D

only a month and a half to go, my sleuthy friends.

Happy Sleuthing!

Also, be sure to remember to pay your registration fee for the actual event (in addition the making your hotel reservation). Very few people have done so as of yet:

You can register here:

I do not yet have up the options for family and child prices, those will be up shortly.

You can buy individual adult tickets for $135.

Looking forward to it.

that should be fixed very shortly :D

Prices are as follows: children 0-3 are free, 4-11 $90, 12-16 $110, 17 and up is full price.

IF your child will not be participating in ANY part of the event (including meals) then registering the child is not necessary.

Just so you know... The cost of meals for the event is approximately $72, including tax and gratuity, per person. We do not get a price break for children as this cost is based on a minimum of 25 attendees and is paid full regardless. This does not include the breakfast buffet available to all guests of the hotel. For this you will purchase your reduced price Breakfast Buffet 'vouchers' at the time of check in. They will be approx $10 and include beverages, which the standard vouchers do not. (I think they have child prices for the breakfast buffet)

The remainder of your registration fee goes toward paying for the Sleuth Mystery Dinner Show, door prizes, entertainment, and the cost of the meeting room for 2 days.

That's all the updates I have thus far. Please remember that time is getting short. Register today! :D

Just booked flight, hotel and paid my registration last night. One last hurdle, get my Saturday shift covered at work. If nobody will work it for me, I just might come down with a sudden illness!!! ;-)
