    AdeptiCon 2011 Online Registration Now Open!

    Our new and improved online registration system is now up and running at http://
    cart.adepticon.org, and AdeptiCon 2011 attendees are already reserving their spots for the premier
    miniature wargaming event of 2011.

    Last year over 1300 hobbyists took part in making AdeptiCon the standard by which all miniature
    wargaming conventions are judged. As always, we’re not content to simply rest on our laurels. This
    year, we’re adding and developing our events to make sure that when you attend AdeptiCon 2011 you
    have the most memorable experience possible.

    No matter which game system you prefer, AdeptiCon 2011 features something for almost everyone.
    Our schedule is filled with tournaments, demos, open games, seminars, and many other exciting
    events. Attendees will be able to shop our vendor hall, talk to our VIP guests, and take part in the action
    throughout the AdeptiCon weekend.

    Event Hard Limits

    Don’t delay! Sign up today to reserve your spot at AdeptiCon 2011. Last year, many popular events
    filled up well before the end of online registration, and this year will likely be no different. In addition,
    due to our expansion, our AdeptiCon 2011 event slots are HARD LIMITS. In the past we have had the
    flexibility to add slots as events were filled. This year, we WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ADD ADDITIONAL
    SLOTS. Once events are sold out, NO MORE WILL BE ADDED! Don’t be left out – sign up today!

    Make Your Hotel Reservations Today!

    You can also reserve your hotel rooms at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center, which will be hosting
    AdeptiCon for the third straight year. AdeptiCon attendees are eligible for the convention rate of
    $109.00 per night.

    For Gamers, By Gamers

    For nine years, our motto, “For Gamers, By Gamers” has guided what we do and how we do it. Our
    dedicated staff of volunteers are the engine that drives AdeptiCon and have made it the premier event
    in the miniature wargaming hobby. Volunteers are absolutely critical to the making AdeptiCon a success
    and supporting and building the hobby in general. If you can come in a little earlier, or stay a little later,
    or give us one day over the weekend, you can help us make sure that AdeptiCon lives up to the standard
    of excellence that we’ve built and give a little bit back to the hobby that we all love and enjoy.

    Here are the ways you can help make AdeptiCon a success:

    Event Staff (Registration, Tournaments, Demos, other Events)

    Our event staff help run all of our events, from one hour demos with four or five players, to the massive
    440 person AdeptiCon 40K National Team Tournament. They also staff our registration table, take
    pictures and do everything needed to make sure that events run as smoothly as possible. If you’re
    interested in working as part of our event staff, be sure to let us know which day(s) during the weekend
    that you’re available to work.

    Operations (Setup and Breakdown)

    Our operations staff come in a little bit earlier and/or stay a little bit later, and do the behind-the-
    scenes work of setting up and breaking down the terrain for our gaming tables, unpacking the legendary
    AdeptiCon “swag”, and much more. If you’re interested in working as part of our operations staff, let us
    know if you can come early, leave later, or both!

    Terrain Building

    Thanks to our Terrain Building team, AdeptiCon’s terrain has become well known for a standard of
    excellence not usually seen at independent conventions. This team does the entirety of their work
    before the convention, and you must be able to get to our terrain building headquarters (for the past
    two years, Capitol City Games in Springfield, IL) for terrain building days.

    Communications/Marketing

    Our communications and marketing team helps spread the word about AdeptiCon. We’re looking for
    people who have a strong online presence, especially within their respective gaming communities.
    News releases go out every few weeks, and our communications/marketing team distributes them.
    There’s a lot to do, but we spread it out over a long period of time. Best of all, like the Terrain Building
    team, our job is done once the weekend starts! You can be a part of our communications and marketing
    team from anywhere!

    If you want to volunteer, or just want to find out more about what volunteering entails, email us at
    volunteer@adepticon.org with the following information:

        GenCon 2010 pulled 30,000 "unique" spectators (I guess they went by ticket sales), not including venders.



        Of course, that does include non-hobbyists and rpgers.
