Summer Con Information Updates

For those attending Coaster Con XXXII this June in Missouri, this Saturday May 9th is the last day to book hotels for that. There is still some time left to register for the event itself.

For anyone intersted in attending ACEspana, that deadline for registration has been extended to May 15th, due to the late arrivals of the recent ACE News Magazines. That flyer can be found at

Other events and information will be announced as we get it.  Our SOAR region is currently planning a summer event in Columbus. Details for that will be released in the next 2 weeks.
