HârnCon 2012 in Austin, TX July 13th-15th

#1 Post by Krazma » Wed May 02, 2012 8:30 am

HârnCon 2012 will be held on July 13th-15th in Austin, TX.

The location will be:

La Quinta Inn & Suites Austin/Cedar Park-Lakeline
10701 Lakeline Mall Drive
Austin, TX 78717
Phone: 512-568-3538

There is a block of rooms (a mix of king & double) reserved at the rate of $95/night (mention either "HarnCon 2012" or group code #174 when you call to get this rate). You will need to reserve you room no later than June 21st to get this rate. After that, any rooms left over in the block will be released to other guests, and higher rates may apply.

The meeting room is 400 square feet (about 20'x20') with a capacity of about 35 people. Since that's way more than we've had at the past several HârnCons, I think it will be plenty of space.

I will be posting additional details here as they become available, but if there are any questions I can answer in the meantime, feel free to post them or PM me.

Also, if you are coming, please reply here so I can get a better estimate of attendance.

Looking forward to seeing a bunch of you there!

Rob

I will be there. It's been 25 years since the last time I visited Austin so it has been long due. I know it's the Americans that is supposed to come to Europe but it can't hurt going in the opposite direction. :wink:

I fully expect to be there for part of it, but making the whole thing is unlikely. If/when an agenda is posted, it'll help me decide when to show up. I'm more interested in meeting you guys in person and just hanging out than anything else.

Thanks Jon. I'm looking forward to meeting you.

As attendance shapes up and I get an idea what games/events will be run, I will definitely be posting an agenda.

Here are the flyers for HârnCon XI. Thanks to Richard Luschek for art, Matt Roegner for the heraldry, and Brent Bailey for the layout.

I plan to have t-shirts available for the attendees. The design will feature the heraldry on the front, with the Warferret design on the back. If you are interested in having one, be sure to let me know what size you wear.

For those interested, Matt did provide the details of the heraldry:

The blazon: Gules, on a pale azure, a molet of five points argent surrounded by ten suns in splendor or.
Mantling: argent and gules.
Crest: a ferret rampant argent.

The field represents a combined Austin and Texas, while the ten suns the previous HârnCons. The ferret rampant needs no explanation.

IMO, every HârnCon & IviniaCon should have it's own distinctive heraldry.

Enjoy.

REMINDER: The lower room rates apply only through the 21st, so reserve your room in the coming week if you want to get them.
