There will be a Trivia Contest! There will be a Cosplay Contest! There will be a Hansel & Gretel Desserts Competition! And there may even be dancing - Snoppy-like and otherwise ;) And yes, for the winners there will be L00t!! FTW!
There's an absolute limit of 50 attendees (including organisers) so if you're want to come, get in quick! Also there is a charge - and a refund is not necessarily guaranteed (Read the refund conditions - the price is below!)
