PrezCon, Inc. is proud to host its 10th annual event that has become the premier winter boardgaming convention. Over the years, PrezCon has grown from a small, regional convention to the big event it now is, drawing attendees from all over the USA, Canada, and Europe. Once again, we'll be increasing the events we're running this year (with more than 70 tournaments). The events will include some of your old favorites as well as some of the classic war games. We are starting track scheduling for 2003. What does that mean? It means that if play German games, you will be able to play every heat of every German game we host. If you play Rail games, it will be the same and so on. This will make your convention gaming schedule easy to follow, and it will allow you to play in all your favorite games! We will be making each of these tracks its own Ironman Championship! As in the past, the gaming facilities will be centralized in one location at the Double Tree Hotel. We expect even greater things this coming year and hope to see you. Pre-registration Pre-registration for the weekend is $50, and if we receive your registration fee by 1/30/2003 you will get a free PrezCon T-shirt or hat! Fill out the form below and submit it, then mail in your registration fee to the address below the registration form. Be sure to include your e-mail address so we can send you update information. Let us know what games you are interested in and we'll reserve a place at the table for you, though you won't be restricted to the choices you make now.
