Why HalloweenCon?

Well, honestly...we had always wanted to do a convention on our favorite holiday. And the hotel happened to mention that Halloween weekend was very quiet, and asked if we'd consider doing an event then? Coincidence? Synchronicity? Fate!

Besides, we were getting real tired of being told we were too old to Trick or Treat....!

What would YOU like to see at the Con?

Let us know! Contact Cheryl or Bruce at (301) 292-5231 (between 10am and 10pm Eastern time) and you can help make it happen!

It's not too late!

Thanks to those of you who pre-registered; it's important!

Even if you didn't, it's not too late to join the Con! Membership is $30 at the door.

FanTek, 1607 Thomas Rd., Friendly, MD 20744.

Please Note: We are not a drinking convention, and the Hotel does not allow alcohol to be brought in, so please don't. Thank You.
