Important message from the ZapCon management. I was asked to pass it on since I am the official BYOAC Ambassador, after all.
Itís a brand new year which means itís time to get the Zapcon ball rolling again. Mark your calendars for April 29-30Ö Year FIVE! Time really flies. Doesnít seem that long ago we were stuffing that little room at the Renaissance to the gills with machines, fighting electrical issues and meter maids. Ah, good times.
Last year was far and away the best show yet with over 300 games, lots of fun tournaments, exhibitions, and activities, and I hope we can count on your support to keep the momentum going for 2017. As always, in exchange for contributing to the show you qualify for the following incentives:
a weekend pass for each working game you bring.
all the benefits of pre-registration, including early admission.
access to the Contributor Only preview night.
a free ZapCon t-shirt if you bring 5 or more games.
a ticket for a drawing to win a FREE ARCADE GAME for each game you bring.
An exclusive "contributor" keepsake name badge.
a golden opportunity to sell or trade games.
Most importantly youíll be part of the Zapcon team, and a valued member of the pinball & arcade community.
As if our keepsake badges and shirts werenít cool enough on their own, we recently started doing Zapcon Nights at local arcade/pinball hotspots throughout the year. Wearing a current Zapcon badge or shirt gets you discounts and free stuff at these events! In fact, Join us for the next one Jan. 27th at Bonus Round!
As an additional thank you for being part of our show, Iíd like to pass along a SIGNIFICANT show-only discount from Stern/Marco on their pinball machines. In exchange for the huge discount, the game will be delivered to the venue, and you will take it home after the close of the show on Sunday April 30th. The games available to us are:

The deadline for taking advantage of this offer is March 13th, and supplies are limited, so donít dally.
Please get back to me and let us know what games youíd like to bring this year, and if you're interested in the Stern discount.
We take a lot of pride in our humble event, and I hope you do because it is YOUR event too. We canít do it without you.
