UPDATES for 2021 and Deadlines:
Please note: As of now, attendee numbers are limited due to current COVID restrictions. After we reach capacity, we have a waiting list. As restrictions change, we will allow more attendees to sign up as we are able. Sign up early!
Friday or Saturday Lunch - Please note that the buffet is no longer open at the casino, which limits the lunch options on-site. We have added a ticketed lunch option on the registration form for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. This option may be purchased in advance by July 23 and will be picked up in the arena. A limited quantity will be available on-site for an additional fee or some restaurants are available on-site as well.
Educators Workshop - Due to space restrictions at the time of planning, we could not include an educators workshop as a pre-con in 2021. The KEMSA Educator's Society is planning to host a virtual workshop later this fall. Watch for details.
