An the big surpise is…
Alrighty, time to really break out the big surprise that have been keeping under my hat for the past…oh…two weeks or so. It’s still a bit of a work in progress as I put the final touches on the website but I’m 99.9% sure I should have it done by this weekend. I’ve teased some of you with little tidbits on Facebook as well as a link to the new Facebook page for this event but I think it’s about time I really tell you what’s going on.
I am now proud to introduce to you the new sister con to Anime SG: Anime Bonanza!
Anime Bonanza will be taking place in Reno, NV, August 6th, 2011 at the Ramada Reno Hotel & Casino. It will be a single day event for it’s first year but with plans to go two days in the very near future. This is not a joke and it’s not a drill. This is really happening as in hotel contracts have already been signed and guests have already been booked. Yes…I have booked guests for our first year but you won’t know who they are until the website is up. >w<
Pre-Registration and At-Door Prices will be the same as Anime SG (Pre-Reg: $15 // At-Door: $20). Pre-Registration will be open March 1st and Dealer and Artists Registration will be available as soon as the website goes live. We are going to be having a bigger set up then what we have at Best Western Abbey Inn for ASG so there are going to be much more dealer spaces available.
Also, I am going to be looking for volunteers either in the Reno, NV area or those who are willing to travel for Anime Bonanza. Naturally, volunteers will get lunch and a free convention pass. So if you are interested in helping out, please drop me a line by commenting here or getting a hold of me on the Anime Bonanza Facebook Page. I will need both Staff Volunteers as well as Panelist. Complete details will, of course, be on the website.
Well, that is the jist of it for now. I’ll make sure to link to the website as soon as it’s up. Quick note if you don’t already know but we have confirmed Skuttlebutt Ink as our guests for Anime SG 2011! I will have their information updated on the ASG Website as soon as they give it to me. Also, Dealer and Artists Registration for Anime St. George 2011 opens January 15th.
