April 9-12, 2009
Happy New YEAR! And we have plenty of things to celebrate here at Frolicon HQ!! Frolicon (www.frolicon.com) is the adult (21+) science fiction convention held every Easter Weekend (April 9-12, 2009) in Atlanta, GA.
Tons of info below...keep on reading. It'll be worth it.
If you haven’t reserved your room yet, hop to it. As in past years, we anticipate a sell out year at our new home The Sheraton Gateway Atlanta. 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 (in/out for guests at the hotel) 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. We’re nearly doubling our programming space and the sleeping rooms are nothing less than unbelievable, so you don’t want to miss this year.
If you haven’t preregistered, it’s not too late to get in on the fun. We have several ways for you to register online. Just go to the registration tab on the homepage to pre register for 4 days of fun and frolic for only $50. Do it now! Rates will be $65 at the door.
You can also register with us whereever we may go to promote for the super ridiculously low rate $40. Right now, we’ll be at Chattacon in Chattanooga this weekend and look for us at Whippersnappers in Atlanta, and several other locales. Keep a look out on LJ, MySpace, FetLife and the website for other promotions coming up.
As you know we add programming all the time, but here’s a teaser to get you as excited as we are.
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Most Spankable Ass Contest
Scenic City Side Show
Pants Off Dance Off
Big Momma Burlesque
Betty Page Contest
Dragon’s loss is Frolicon’s gain! We’re resurrecting an old favorite, the Betty Page look-a-like contest, celebration of the life and lifestyle of that beautiful goddess of pin-up. So trim up those blunt-cut bangs and pick your favorite Betty image. We’ll choose the lovely lady that best embodies the look and attitude of Ms. Page.
Everyone loves a good costume contest! But if it’s at Frolicon you know there’s gonna be a twist. We’ll add some kooky categories and prizes to liven up this old con tradition.
The Spirit of Frolicon Contest
Not quite a beauty contest, not quite a talent competition. The Spirit of Frolicon is our search for the person that best embodies all that Frolicon is and can be. What does Frolicon mean to you? A great party? A gathering of like-minded people? A crazy kinky weekend where you can be yourself without judgment? Well then, show us! Our winner will hold the title of The Spirit of Frolicon for an entire year and even represent Frolicon at promotional events. Look for more details and contest requirements soon on Frolicon.com.

"Come one, come all to the Frolicon Brand of crazy known as The Game Room... in Two Rooms! That's right, this year, for the first time, Gaming has two rooms at its disposal. Yay, us!!In the Game Room, we have all sorts of goings on for you to while away your time between demos, parties and trips to the Play Space. We have board games and card games of such a variety, you'll feel geeked just looking at them. We have the third annual Strip Poker Tournament and the third annual Settlers of Cattan Tournament. New this year we'll also have a LARP run by the Camarilla, a great introduction for those interested in gaming and improv acting. We also plan to have a Jeapordy: Sex Edition and assorted video games (if projectors and such are available). Bring your own favorites and share with as many people as you can rope into a game. Heck, everyone knows:
The More, the Merrier!"
Our kink track will have it’s own floor. Yes, you heard right, it’s own floor. Three days of play and over 50 classes/workshops will keep you up to your kinky eyeballs in fun and education.
