Largest multi-fandom convention within 1 hour of Western MA! This is a chance for people to let us know they are going to the convention. 300 hours of programming overall, including panels, featured guests, dealers room, and photo shoots! This event is cross-scheduled with Dr. Who Club and Western MA Sci-Fi Meetup so that geeks in Western MA who want to carpool or meetup can connect. Feel free to check out the listing at http://www.meetup.com/drwhoclub/events/128763202/ Let me know or comment there if you'd like to carpool or come to a group Meetup at Connecticon.
There are a ton of events that look interesting. Modern Myths will be exhibiting. Also, stop by and say hi to Brian Alter. He is a member of Pioneer Valley Geeks and will be at the Battletech Demo Table, Exhibit Hall B (his hours are Fri 10-1, 2-6, 7-10; Sat 10-12, 1-3, 5-10; Su 10-12, 1-4). Battletech is a table top game with miniatures figures, described as, "31st century armored combat with big stompy robots." Learn the basics of game play from a seasoned veteran who will be on-hand.
