Who's heading down to CanCon 2017 and how long are you going for?

I'm tossing-up whether I go down for a single day, or stay for several or for the whole event.

My family are headed to Canberra for the duration of CanCon. Of course, my wife and son are more likely to see more of Canberra than simply the inside of the halls, but to each their own whistle

I'm not exactly a Sydneysider anymore (escaped Sydney in 2003) being west of Orange but I am going for Friday and Saturday.

I'm still toying whether to go or not depending on: who else is going I could game with and then if the mrs lets me go!

I'm planning on heading down from Newcastle, will be my first time. Are people just going to find board games to play, or is there a particular way to find a game to join?

They have a really good system in the games library where you can advertise for players for any particular game. It worked for me a few times last year, but you get more gaming done if already know people there.

We should make a BGG sign in the library for those of us who haven't met others on here to get the chance to meet up. Always good to put a face to a name in here. The Canberra guys have KLOG and GLOG game sessions so would know each already. Us invading out of towners though not so much.

I'm planning to go, but I'm not sure whether I will head down late on Thursday to be there in time for opening day on Friday, or whether I head down late on Friday to be there for Saturday morning. Either way I'll head home on Sunday I think.

Going Friday early and most of Saturday (leave for home @ 4pm).

With late night gaming on the Friday, I find this addresses the gaming needs whilst still being on speaking terms with the family for going AWOL on a long weekend.

I'm planning on heading down Thursday and leaving on Saturday afternoon. Two days is enough gaming for me!

Canberra is a bit out of the way to come and meet everyone in person for the first time (aside from Clive, I've already met him!). Although I'm very keen to attend in the future. Hopefully I can get along to a Sydney based meet up in the very near future.

I am Heading to Canberra from Bathurst. I stay with a friend there. I must admit, I am usually back at his house playing games we bought than at the convention itself but it is a great getaway.

This will by our 4th Cancon.

I've got to tell you, I really look forward to this event each year. It's a great time to catch up with our Canberra friends, enjoy the con and buy way too many games. This year the whole family is making the trip and staying with friends. Our plan is to arrive early on Friday and spending most of the day there shopping, hunting for bargains and exploring. My wife and 5 year old will most probably head off outside of Cancon after lunch leaving the rest of the day for my 11 year old son and I to continue the fun by ourselves. (The food at Cancon is pretty basic, so we usually head offsite to eat.) On Saturday we will spend some time visiting with friends and playing games before heading back into the convention for a few hours. I like to pop in each day but we might miss out on Sunday this time as the kids need time at home before school starts back up.

I hope you enjoy Cancon this year. See you there!

For those who like to start playing some games from Thursday, I have booked the LFG retail shop from noon to late. There are about 6 tables that and the LFG Library available to play games on the day.

Address as follows:

LFG Retail: Shop 3, Primmer Court, Kambah Village.
