Hotel Registration Cutoff

If you want to reserve a hotel room at the Nugget Casino Resort for SNAFU Con 2015, you'll have until October 1, 2015 to do so. Don't miss out on these great rates!

West Tower:

  • Thurs: $45
  • Fri: $65
  • Sat: $65
  • Sun: $45

East Tower:

  • Thurs: $49
  • Fri: $69
  • Sat: $69
  • Sat: $49

Both of the towers are accessible from the convention itself, making these rooms extremely convenient, whether you're from out-of-town or just want an at-con home base. Plus, registering for a hotel room qualifies you to be a SNAFU Con VIP, which affords you early admission to events and things like meet and greets.

Right now, registering a hotel room is the only way to become a VIP, so if you're interested, book a room!

Staffing and Social Media, oh my!

Want to have your badge paid for? Think you have something to offer the con? Join our staff! We can always use staff members to help us make SNAFU Con the best con it can be. Take a look at our staff policies, staff position listings, and if you think you're interested, attend some of our meetings.

If you're under 18 (or don't have the time to be full-time staff) and want to volunteer, you can attend the staff meetings as well. Come get to know us -- we don't bite and we'd love to have you.

Lastly, keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages over the next few days -- we're going to be doing some fun stuff there.

We're Moving!

As of 2015, SNAFU Con is moving to the John Ascuaga's Nugget in Sparks.

The Grand Sierra Resort and Casino was a wonderful venue which we will miss. A new VP created policies which modified the space requirements for events; our convention space would have been cut in half under the new rules. We do not have enough hotel room bookings to be able to negotiate for the space we need with the new requirements.

In order to bring you the best convention we can, we were forced to look at alternative venues. We did this after careful thought and planning - it was not a light decision. We visited all the venues in the area which had the space we needed and could work with some of our very different requirements, the main one being a 24-hour space. After a lot of footwork and meetings, Nathan brought all the options to our department heads for review.

The JA Nugget was almost too easy of a decision. They had the space we needed, cheaper hotel rooms, and were willing to work with our needs. We are extremely pleased with the JA Nugget and we are excited with the possibilities they provide us for the future of the convention.

There are a few things we know we'll miss, but there are many new benefits that the GSR just couldn't do for us. We consider ourselves lucky to have found such a great alternative. Please tell everyone you know about our new location. We want to make sure that no one ends up in the wrong location for 2015.


We want to remind everyone that if you have any feedback to send it to . We love to hear feedback (positive and negative) and we take every suggestion into consideration. If you don't tell us your convention experiences, how else will we know?
