redwitch: Frolicon Summer Update

Frolicon (www.frolicon.com)
April 9-12, 2009
Sheraton Gateway
Atlanta, GA

Welcome to the summer update for Frolicon, (www.frolicon.com) the adult (21+) science fiction convention held every Easter Weekend (April 9-12, 2009) in Atlanta, GA. Since our frolicking goodness in March 08, a lot of changes have been taking place, and we couldn’t be more excited. Hold on for the ride. This is a long one, but I swear it’ll be worth it in the end.

First, thank you to every single attendee, staffer, performer, instructor and volunteer for making Frolicon better and better every year. We couldn’t do it without your tireless efforts and fabulous energy. Frolicon is what it is because of you!

Next, the website is up and we’re adding new content all the time. Check out the 2008 galleries linked conveniently on the front page! Come back often to keep up with everything that’s going on. Our LiveJournal, Myspace and FetLife account all under the same name, Frolicon, will be kept up to date as well.

We love the Hilton Atlanta NE, and they love us, but it was time to go bigger! And we knew just the place….our new home The Sheraton Gateway Atlanta. That’s right folks, we’re going back to the airport. They’ve wanted us for years and can’t wait to be our new home. We’re nearly doubling our programming space and the sleeping rooms are nothing less than unbelievable. You can reserve your rooms directly online by clicking on the hotel tab at the top of the Frolicon homepage, or you can call them at 866-716-8127. Make sure to ask for the Frolicon room block. Room rates are $99 a night with a $4 a day parking charge. We will have a 7 day cancellation policy as well as a one night stay room deposit 7 days out as well. This hotel is also SMOKE FREE. We just want to keep you informed.

Online pre registration is up and running full steam ahead as well. We have several ways for you to register online now. Just go to the registration tab on the homepage to pre register for 4 days of fun and frolic for only $40. Do it now! Rates go up to $50 after DragonCon.

Speaking of DragonCon…of course we’ll be there outside the Exhibit Hall during the day taking your pre registrations and roaming the halls making mischief during the night.

Sponsorships and program book ads are now available in all price points to showcase your business, event or for your own personal messages. Check them out under the Sponsor tab on the website.

And a few last notes…if you’d like to volunteer, perform, present or just help out, opportunities are available as well. Our dealer’s room is selling out fast. This year vending is by invitation only. If you want an invitation, email Roger. Contacts for volunteers, security, track leaders, dungeon monitors, business, sponsorship, ads…really most anything you may need or want to know is listed below and on the website. So, go take a good look around. We can’t put on this show without your help and support.

Watch the website, LJ, Myspace, and FetLife for where we’ll be next and all the news you need to know to make your frolic the best one possible.

We can’t wait to see you all again!!!

Our best,

Beth, Pam, Chrissie and Shelli
The Frolicon Producers
