After some discussion (and much selling by Jasmine), I have decided to try to make it out for this craziness. Sounds like too much fun to miss out on any longer.

The Dragoncast peeps were talking about it a bit last night. I was also speaking with my dad if that weekend would be feasible for me to make it out because there were some other plans around then.

I will be there from Thursday night, but my regular roommates likely will not check in till Friday. So have 2 spare beds to fill on the Thursday if anyone is arriving early (Friday will have a full day of events now so Thursday is a good option for those nearby).

So what's the best place to stay in the place? The main lodge?

Yes, because you are closest to all the activities. Most cost effective to get at least a double room and share with someone.

The cabins that are on the nearby hill are also decent, probably mostly booked up with the volunteers and organizers but there may be room if you ask. It's an easy walk but I still prefer being right in the lodge itself.

Anyone remember if the cabins have a minifridge/microwave? I couldn't find that on the website. I stayed in the Chestnut Lodge (a two minute walk or so from the main lodge) last year partly because it had those things, but sis and I would possibly be up for sharing a cabin with people.

inkasrain, just make sure you don't get one of the Blueberry Ridge things. Those are actually far away, like a 20 minute or so walk from the main lodge.

I may got BWI this year and arrange transportation from there.

Extended Hours Notice

Quote:
Every year at Ice & Fire Con, more and more of our attendees have been arriving on Thursday even though the convention’s official programming started on Friday afternoon… and that’s why we are pleased to announce that in 2017 we are extending Ice & Fire Con’s official hours! extended hours

First, we will have early registration open on Thursday night, April 27th, from 7 – 9 PM, for anyone who is arriving Thursday and wants to register early. Additionally, registration will re-open Friday morning at 10 AM. This will give our attendees several more hours of programming to enjoy!

I don't think anything 'official' but Thursday night will just be a general hangout for anyone who has arrived, maybe board games or whatever would be my suggestion as its good for the down time. Maybe they will schedule something official but either way the same result is a hangout with early arrivals.

For anyone going, FTWard and I are looking for a roommate to take the last single bed in our unit. Advertising here first before I got to the convention facebook group.

Do we have a list of confirmed attendees from these forums? Is there anyone else attending who hasn't posted here yet?

Thanks!

Now the question is does anyone on that list need a room and can join us or should we be looking for that last roommate elsewhere

Greetings, fans and friends of Ice & Fire Con!

We are half a year out from Ice & Fire Con 2017, and we are so excited about celebrating our fifth anniversary with everyone at the beautiful Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia. Besides the events you know and love from previous years, we are introducing a convention-wide theme, a headlining band for Friday night, and new fandom favorite guests like History of Westeros and ASoIaF University.

Tickets are still $60 through 2016, after which they will increase to $75 for the full weekend pass. Also important to consider is that we only have a room block reserved with Mountain Lake through January 2017; after that they will release those rooms and cabins for the public to book as well as our attendees. There is much more room on property than total tickets available for Ice & Fire Con 2017, but Mountain Lake is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike and we recommend you secure your accommodations sooner rather than later. You can find information on room rates and availability on our website here, and please don’t forget you must purchase a weekend pass to the convention before you can receive the reduced conference room rates at our venue.

We are very happy to have accepted our first ever vendors for 2017’s convention! Due to our intimate numbers, we have a limited number of tables, so if you or someone you know are interested in vending at Ice & Fire Con 2017 please contact us at iceandfirecon@gmail.com as soon as possible.

For some more exciting news, Random House will be donating two Special Edition versions of the George R.R. Martin Box, which we will be utilizing as a prize and in our silent auction at the 2017 Convention of Ice & Fire.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of A Game of Thrones, Random House has created three boxes in partnership with author George R. R. Martin and HBO. The boxes contain collectibles, exclusive items, and a special, illustrated edition of A Game of Thrones, the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire, Martin’s internationally bestselling fantasy series. This edition is not available in stores and includes an alternate cover and a full-color insert of illustrations. The box will be available for a limited time while supplies last in three versions: Special Edition, Limited Edition, and Ultra Limited Edition. Boxes will ship in December in time for the holidays.

More information can be found on http://the.grrmbox.com/2eoxwyC

We are so excited about everything coming Ice & Fire Con’s way next year. Check out our Facebook page, Facebook group, tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram to connect with fellow fans and attendees!

Wishing you a great end to 2016,

Tara Lynne, Queen Regent
K-K Bracken, Lord Paramount
Organizers, Ice & Fire Con
