BOTHCON 2011: Minicon

Bothcon Art by Greg Hyland


Update: Registration is now open. Click on the comments link below for more information and to register.

As promised, we are ready to unwrap the details of our little get together. There's a lot of information so please read carefully.

Attendance to Bothcon requires registration and there are only 20 slots. Each registered attendee can participate in the building contests and will also receive a Bothcon goody bag.

Here's what we have planned for the building contests:

- Speed build: We will be hosting a speed build competition with a set to be determined. (Prizes for first place to be determined)
- Alternate build: Using the same set, build an alternate model to be judged by a panel of experts (Prizes to be determined).

Bothcon starts at 11:00am on Saturday June 18 in an area to be determined. We predict that both activities will hopefully take no longer than an hour leaving you the rest of the day to enjoy the park.

As for the goody bag, here's what's inside:

- Well for starters, the goody bag is actually a reusable LEGO Star Wars vinyl tote bag. Get your nerd on while being green. Great for grocery shopping! Perfect for sleepovers!
- You'll also get a Jon Palmer M-wing Starfighter Kit. These kits are faithfully reproduced in old grays with the Bionicle elements in random sets of colors. You might get a blue M-wing, or one in dark orange, maybe even black. Many more colors available, randomly chosen for you!
- A Bothcon 2011 T-shirt with artwork by Greg Hyland (pictured above)
- and more! We'll unwrap more details about what's included in the goody bag the closer we get to the event.

Now, about registration, in order to involve as many community members as possible, we are limiting registration to one registered forum member per family. Please don't try and register your mom, dad, son, daughter, sister, brother, pet cat or anyone else you may be related to. Your friends and family are more than welcome to come and hang out, but we have a limited number of slots for the contests and an equally limited number of goody bags.

Visit the forum thread for more information on registration and to ask any questions you may have.

Clarification on the goody bag:

The Bothcon goody bag is different than the one that particpants receive from LEGOLAND for participating in the fan display.

Additional information on registration:

- You have to be registered member of FBTB before May 17th, 2011.
- Only one registration per member per family. We want to give as many people as possible the chance to attend, meet, and greet, and partake in the activities. We only have 20 slots. It wouldn't be very fair if one person registered their family of 5 leaving only 15 other slots.
- Registration fees are $25 dollars.

We are going to handle registrations similarly to the way we handle draft registrations. This thread will remain locked until 3:00pm Pacific Time Friday May 20, 2011. Once unlocked post a reply to this message. The first 20 responses will be sent a private message with instructions on how to complete the registration process. After 20 replies, any additional replies will be added to the wait list. People back out all the time, so if you see a lot of replies, put your name down anyway, you may get lucky.

Please hold your questions until Friday afternoon. We should have more concrete details on what else is included in the goody bag by then.

We hope to see many of you there.

Additional details:

- You have to actually attend Bothcon in person. Goody bags will not be mailed out.
- The registration fee ($25) is in addition to the cost to get into the park. Most of the fee goes towards the goody bag and we honestly feel that you get a lot for the fees.
