Chattacon 32!

We’ve got exciting things in store for this year.  First, take a look around – this is our new web site!  The new site will grow and change as we need it.  Right now, its a bit rough as we are still fleshing everything out but it is coming along nicely!

Next up, we have a HOTEL!  Yes – we will be back at the Choo Choo for 2007!  We had a blast there in 2006 and were able to get a great deal worked out for 2007!  

We also have GUESTS!  We are pleased to announce Kevin J. Anderson  and Robert J. Sawyer as our Guests of Honor. Take a look at the Guests tab for a complete list, as well as photos and links to bios or web sites!  Chick here to download the latest flier and registration form !

Chattacon 32 Art Show

The Chattacon Art Show is well known throughout fandom as one of the best and we are not about to lessen our reputation this year. A varied and interesting assortment of flat and 3D artwork will be on display for your viewing enjoyment and acquisition. 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’s Art Show is blessed with a large enough room to offer space for an Artist’s Nook.  This will be a space where you the artist can set up and draw, paint, sculpt, work on that current project.  Also in the Nook we would like to offer small, mini-workshops.

Chattacon, in its attempt to appeal to an ever-widening circle of fandom, will be holding gaming tournaments in a number of popular role-playing, card, board and miniature games from a variety of sources. Chattacon will also offer its annual fare of computer-based and home arcade style games in the computer room. If you are interested in being a referee or gamemaster for a tournament, please contact the gaming coordinator, KC Charland .

Chattacon 32 Consuite

The hardworking Consuite 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 going on in the Consuite! The Consuite is also the place to meet and greet other fans and catch up with friends both new and old.

Chattacon’s Consuite will again be housed in the Grand Central Station building.

We will open at 3pm on Friday and close at 3pm on Sunday.

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!!
