Its almost Kiwicon 8 time! Everyone with a ticket should have got a mailout with the last minute details; we'll see you for early ticket pickup on Wednesday afternoon, or at the con Thursday and Friday.
If you're around on Tusday night, join the training people, the Crue and friends at the Malthouse for Right Island Con.
Door sales are available at the early pickup, and at the venue on Thursday and Friday, $100, cash only, until we sell out. Tshirts are available for purchase, also for cash only. You can visit Wellington's most skimmed ATM over the road at Readings Cinema...
From here on in, this are gonna get pretty hectic for the Kiwicon Crue, and updating the website on the go is second priority to actually running the 'con.We'll be using @kiwicon on twitter to keep you appraised of things on the fly.
The Kiwicon Crue
If you're looking to meet up with some friendly faces before Kiwicon starts hit up their snazzy eventbrite RSVP form and head along!
Also, it's almost Kiwicon time. There are a few tickets remaining, but we're pretty sure everyone we know is coming along now.
Even our pals at the GCSB. (hi!)
We've rejigged some logistics, and have conjured forth more tickets which are for sale in the shopping barrow right now. These really aren't gonna last long, so if you missed out, do not delay!
Related, this is insane. >1000 hackers at a con in New Zealand?! o__O
Merchandise ordering has finished; the screen printer is hard at work with the pots of cyan and magenta ink.
Ticket sales are also closed (we're sold out!) but if you've got a pre-paid discount code, then you can still register your ticket. To do this you'll need the "late pass" code - ask whoever provided your discount code, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training sales have also closed, but we may be able to squeeze you in if you're keen. Email us!
Yes, Kiwicon 8 is sold out, all thousand seats.
Sorry if you missed out, maybe go to Wrong Island Con instead?
