This is it, we have a location and we’re definitely ON!
Scarefest 2015 will be on October 23-25 at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center in Black Mountain, NC.
While our original intention had been to keep it within Asheville, proper, it turns out that it’s very difficult to get a space in leaf season for the budget of a little start-up con. However, the folks at Montreat have been fantastic to work with, and are offering a space at a rate so reasonable we can keep admission costs super-low. As in, $10 for an entire weekend of gaming fun!
Other massive advantages coming with being located at Montreat include the option of bringing in outside food (we will also arrange food deliveries for those who would like to go that route…but those on special diets need no longer fear they will face the choice of starving or missing game time), and inexpensive on-site lodging. That’s right: they have a lodge for us within easy walking distance from the gaming space, for $50/night. There are 24 rooms left, with a variety of configurations, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
