Greetings friends and Arcaniacs! I am happy to announce that we have cleared the hurdles and can give information on Arcanicon 2017. It will be held March 10-12, 2017 at:
WYNDHAM GARDEN ROMULUS – Detroit Metro Airport
9191 Wickham Road
Romulus MI 48174
To Reserve rooms: go to the hotel website at www.wyndham.com/hotel/48680 and using the group code ARCANI. You may also call 800-221-5801 and again use the code ARCANI for the special room rate.
The rates should be:
Double room with Queen beds – $94
Double room with standard beds – $86
One King Bed – $86
Suite – $105
To be clear, official games will be set for Friday and Saturday. Players are free (and encouraged) to organize self-run Open Library slots on Thursday and Sunday. The convention cost is $25 per person (cash), payable at door.
We will be attaching a googledoc link very soon for everyone to register for the convention itself. It is very important that players pre-reg as soon as possible so that we can project the amount of needed judges and if we can provide any extra benefits/swag to players.
Just like in years past, we are strongly encouraging everyone to utilize the hotel bar/restaurant for meals. This allows for a free meeting room and helps keep the cost of the convention down to a reasonable rate per person. Outside food and drink is not permitted in the meeting room due to hotel licensing. Complimentary breakfast is already provided by the hotel. The restaurant is not open for lunch, but we have arranged for a cash and carry lunch to be provided (with vegetarian and gluten-free options). When ordering meals or drinks at the hotel, please notify them that you are with the Arcanicon group.
