We just opened registration for 2017!

It's the earliest we've ever opened registration!

SNAFU Con 2017 will be held October 6, 7, and 8 at the Nugget Resort Casine in Sparks, Nevada. Yet again, we'll be opening Friday morning and we'll keep going until Sunday night: we always have something going on.

Registration is $30 for a weekend badge until May 15th, then $35 until the end of preregistration on September 4th. After that the price goes up to $40 and you don't get a nice full-color souvenir badge. Online registration closes October 2. At the door weekend badges are $40 and single-day badges are $20.
