What is Not-A-Con?

Not-A-Con is not a convention, they are too much work
It is a one room gathering where we will get together and have fun
There will be some structure and lots of free time to socialize

Whether you join in advance or pay at the door, please let us know you're coming
It will help us plan food and supplies
Just send an email to <NotACon.email at gmail.com>

Hope to see you there!
