It’s one week until the start of Mysterium 2017! Are you excited? Are you full of last-minute questions? Don’t worry, the committee is here to help.
We’re once again offering a mobile version of our schedule through Guidebook. If the schedule changes, we will update the Guidebook throughout the weekend. It also contains maps and info about the area, including attractions and food options. You can download it to your Android or Apple device by scanning the QR codes above. If you don’t have a compatible device, you can also access the guide from any web browser through this link.
We recently sent an email out to everyone who told us they’d be bringing a car to Mysterium. It had information about how free parking will work for both attendees staying at the hotel and those driving in each day. If you’re planning to bring a car to the hotel, and you haven’t received that email, please email the committee so that we can get that information to you.
What To Expect On Site
We’ll be in the Panther, Dolphin and Pelican sections of the main ballroom. Registration will begin around 9:30am on Friday, August 4, and the convention will officially kick off at 10:30. Remember, the full schedule is accessible at our website, or at the Guidebook links above.
A note: Please don’t try to come into the convention room before a committee member stands outside and starts officially welcoming people in. We need to unlock the room and set up a lot of furniture and equipment, and it’s much easier to do that when we’re not dodging people ;). Feel free to socialize in the lobby area outside the ballroom as we finish getting ready.
Speaking of socializing, there are many attendees who will be arriving on Thursday the 3rd so that they can get a good night’s sleep at the hotel before the con starts. In the past, people have hung out in the lobby, played games, or held an unofficial pool party to get to know each other. Likewise, a lot of people stick around through Sunday night for some extra fun. On top of that, the schedule for Friday night includes a block of time for board games and the like. So if you’ve got some small board or card games or fun activities, feel free to bring those along! There’s even talk of an unofficial knitting circle.
