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.

Flo, at this time there are 10 people registered... I had really hoped for more as the costs for attending were based on a minimum number for the price breaks... the event will not break even... but it will NOT be cancelled...

Everything is a go and I am at this moment sitting in PDX waiting for my flight out. I will be in Orlando tomorrow (Wednesday) around noonish and will check in with the hotel and make any final preparations and arrangements that need to be made. Everything was paid for today, so anyone wanting to sign up late can do so at the 'door'. There will be meals for up to 25 people, with the exception of breakfasts. Late registers will have to buy their own breakfast coupons at the standard cost of $10.95 plus tip and beverage. Only those who pre-registered will receive the free SleuthCon I t-shirt.

As for transportation to the hotel, I will check with April tomorrow when I get there and will post here as soon as I know. The Best Western Shuttle should be available and is free in most places I've stayed... but, please don't quote me, I've never been in Orlando lol.

And YAY! finals week is over for me and I got A's.
