Hi Everyone! From June 27-29, 2014, the first annual RAGECon is going to be held at the Circus Circus Resort & Casino in Reno, NV. There will be tournaments, special events and an Achievement League with daily raffles throughout the convention (sign ups are being handled through Warhorn), which are being generously supported by Wyrd, event sponsors and local stores. There will be no entry fees for any of the events and tournaments, but there are some registration costs associated with the convention (details are available on their website). Please do sign up at your earliest convenience if you're interested in attending so we can have a good idea on potential turnout. You will have to wait to get approval to sign up after registering with Warhorn because of the way the site works, but it would be tremendously helpful to me and the convention organizers if you would do so. Circus Circus is offering discounted hotel rates for attendees (there's a link to the reservation system on the RAGECon homepage as well). We're less than 2 hours from Sacramento (I plan to be at Califaux with some of our local players in a couple weeks) and 3-4 hours from most places in the Bay Area, and I know there are regular buses running from those places to the nearby bus station if you're not inclined to drive up yourself.
