JerkCon VIII - The Ocho (Somebody stop this thing)
[As advertised in Obscure Sports Quarterly]
15-18 February 2013, Richmond, Indiana
JerkCon, for the eighth consecutive year, will again be one of Richmond, Indiana's premier President's Day weekend gaming events. Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge.
Last year's festival saw comers from both coasts (PA and CA) and from such exotic locales as KS, TX, and MI! Not to mention the fierce local angry village mob - 20+
What does JerkCon provide that other conventions don't?
That large enough to be a real game convention feel, but small enough to feel like you're playing at someone's house atmosphere.
A grumpy FEMALE convention manager.
Excellent food service from the 5-star acclaimed Chez Gretchen.
For the 8th year in a row, we're expecting Bistro Catherine to be closed for business.
The big board of board games played (I'm already bored).
The Larry Blamire film festival. This year's feature: Dodgeball!
A unique blend of both open gaming and tournament gaming featuring the prestigious JerkCon Winners medals.
Free food and lodging (restrictions apply, contact Jeff for details)
Fireworks display, usually in sub-freezing temperatures
The recycling bin competition.
Valet snow shoveling service (if required)
The Sunday evening awards ceremony sometimes held on Saturday.
Complementary shuttle to/from Dayton Airport (again, restrictions apply)
The funniest thing said by a teenager competition (aka The Catherine Award)
Friday night: let's just set it up.
And new for 2013:
By popular acclaim, the JerkCon band of roaming gnomes have contracted with the local constabulary and have retained the use of Richmond, IN for JerkCon purposes.
Guest appearance by Patches O'Houlihan.
Introduction of the coveted "Luck of the Irish" award.
So come join us and make JerkCon your favorite mistake.
