Hey gang,
It’s the time of year again where we rally the troops and try to beat last year’s game count. At ZapCon 3.0 we were creeping up on 300 games. Let’s see if we can surpass it this year!

We’re offering the tried and true incentives:
-a weekend pass for every fully functional game you bring
-a collectible “Contributor” badge and lanyard that is unique from normal attendees
-early entrance to the event on both days

AND we’ve added:
-A free “ZapCon 4” t-shirt if you bring 5+ games
-access to the “Contributor Only” game time the Friday night before the event

We’ve got a couple more surprises in the works for you, so stay tuned!

Also, if you have a business or product you’d like to get in front of the southwest’s classic gaming community, we have vendor and sponsor opportunities available.

ZapCon is as much your event as it is ours, and I hope you take as much pride in it as we do. Word of mouth is the best way for people to find out about us, so PLEASE spread the word to other collectors and enthusiasts.

SO WHAT GAMES ARE YOU BRINGING?

This year, I hope to bring Macross (always a favorite), a Super Pac-Man cocktail, and a special surprise game for ZapCon. Maybe NBA Jam, but that sucker is HEAVY. Depends on the size of the trailer I get.

Awesome!  and thanks for rallying all the BYOAC folks for the show! :)

I'm flying out from NYC to go.  Can't wait.  If I could I'd bring a couple of my machines, but I'm too far away.  :-(

See you there Wes!

The game pledges are coming in at a steady pace, but there’s still room for more!  As another way to say thank-you, we’ve decided to give away a FREE ARCADE GAME to one lucky contributor!  You will be entered into a drawing once for each game you bring to the show, so the more games you bring, the better your odds.

email me if you're interested in being part of Team ZapCon!

If you're coming in from out of town or just want to stay close to the action, we finally secured this year's discount room rate at the Phoenix Marriott Mesa:

The deadline for reservations is March 18th, so don't procrastinate. :)

I don't suppose they could retro that for those of us that have already reserved?

Couldn't you book this one, then cancel your other one?

You could contact them directly with your booking info and ask. Couldn't hurt.

So long as you booked it straight through the hotel and not a 3rd party...I'd just give the front desk a ring. Explain the situation...they might be reasonable and credit you the difference.

Hey Wes. Still haven't heard back regarding the Sunday morning shift.

I have trouble keeping people's 'forum names' aligned with their actual names.  can you email me at wes[at]zapcon[dot]com so we can try to get it sorted out?

Hey gang,
I just wanted to thank everyone for coming out, and thanks to Paul for bringing in all the out of towners.  This was the best Zapcon yet, with over 300 games and nearly 2000 guests.  Thank you for being part of it. 

I took a bunch of pictures at the show.  You can check them out here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1183107935033567.1073741833.591319554212411&type=3

I hope I'll see you all next year!
Wes

I think I'm in one of the aerials playing Raiden Fighters but I'm not sure.

It was a great time nonetheless!  Can't wait for next year!
