The Chattacon Program Book is accepting ads. Ad rates will be $100 for a full page, $75 for a half-page and $50 for a quarter page. Non-profit fan and amateur organizations may be entitled to a 50% discount. The program book editor is the sole judge of what constitutes a fan or amateur organization. Ad deadline is December 15.

Chattacon is looking for short stories, art work and other material for inclusion in our program book. You can submit material by email to the editor or by mail to the Chattacon PO Box.

Any program book submissions will remain the property of their authors with the stipulation that Chattacon has the non-exclusive right to publish or not to publish the submission in the next or subsequent program books.

 

Chattacon 31 Art Show

A print shop will be available again this year to allow you to purchase prints of some of your favorite works of art. All of the fun culminates in the art auction on Saturday Night.

Chattacon 31 Consuite

Chattacon’s Consuite has been a movable feast the past couple of years. The hardworking staff labor to bring the fans consumables of all types 24 hours a day. From early morning donuts to late night Iron Chef Creations and of course the infamous Little Debbies, there is always something interesting in the Consuite! The Consuite is also the place to meet and greet other fans and catch up with friends both new and old. We hope to bring you the best year yet in Hospitality. As always, we welcome suggestions and volunteers.

You can reach the head of hospitality at consuite@chattacon.org .

Remember, you will be required to present an ID for some service in the Consuite, so be sure to bring a legal ID to Chattacon. Come have fun with us.
