Dragon Con 2020 with SkepTrack

This is a thread for all things Dragon Con 2020 related, especially if they apply to the SkepTrack, which is the Skeptic's content track at Dragon Con, organized by Derek and April Colanduno.

You can think of SkepTrack as a "mini-TAM" or "mini-CSICON" or "mini-NECSS" or "mini-QED" or mini-whatever-your-local-skeptical-convention-is-these-days.

It takes place Thursday, September 3rd to Monday, September 7.

If you haven't heard of Dragon Con before: It's like "Mardi Gras for Geeks". It's MORE than a mere sci-fi/fantasy convention! It is a celebration of all things nerdy and geeky, and it's got more live entertainment than any other such con (I think), and it' got 24-hour programming in case you wanted that.

Oh yes, it also has STEM-related tracks, for science, space, robotics and other DIY projects, and of course... SkepTrack for skepticism.


Anyway, for this parent post, it's too early to declare who or what is going to be there, for certain. But, I will keep you updated as I know more.

If you haven't gotten your hotel room, yet, it might not be too late; although I could be wrong about that. Hotel rooms go fast in that area. I managed to book a hotel near the center of the con, but NOT one of its host hotels, this time. It's cheaper (even with the discount), and getting into your room is probably easier.

Last time I went to Dragon Con (2018), I booked too late, and had to get a room at a hotel a few miles away.



Anyone else going?

Yes, this year Wowbagger will be the only attendee at Dragon*Con. He'll have four entire hotels all to himself.
