We sent out notice yesterday to our gamemasters.  Now we’re letting everyone know.

Before preregistration goes live, we’d like to give you a chance to review the event schedule. Our event list is up on our website. However, ticket selection and purchases are still disabled.

Gamemasters, please contact us if you have any concerns about the schedule or how your event is listed.  The easiest way to look at your schedule is to use the search page. Please type your last name or your group name into the event search, e.g. Wick or Amorphous. You can also check to ensure your event is listed on appropriate tracks. Please use the event browse page and click on your track. Then use the find feature of your web browser (ctrl-f) to look for your name.

Preregistration will open Thursday September 22 at 11 AM EST.

Thank you for being a part of U-Con. Though our opening of preregistration was delayed, we are quite pleased with the selection of events. If we are missing games you want to play, please let us know or consider submitting additional events. We will keep Event Submission open as long as we can.
