JordanCon, a three day fantasy literature convention founded in honor of the late Robert Jordan, just released the progress report for 2011. JordanCon takes place in Atlanta, GA each year and hundreds of Wheel of Time fans from around the world attend it.
A convention progress report is a document distributed a few months before the convention, that gives you important information about traveling and the location, as well as an idea of what kind of activities to expect when you get there.
I hope that 2011 finds all our friends healthy and happy. I'm very pleased to say that JordanCon 2011 planning is going very well. We have a great convention in store for you.
A couple notes:
We've designated Friday night as "Stormleader/ Tower Guard Night". In addition to our regular programming, we encourage you to wear your shirts if you were a signing volunteer in 2009 or 2010. We'll try to get a group photo with Brandon, Harriet and the rest of Team Jordan.
If you intend to throw a room party Friday or Saturday night, please email Jennifer at JordanCon@ageoflegends.net so we can ask the hotel to group all the party rooms together. Remember, we're not the only ones using the hotel that weekend and we want to be good neighbors. We ask that all room parties start no earlier than 9PM to allow everyone a chance to enjoy the scheduled JordanCon programming.
The HBO series A GAME OF THRONES, based on George R.R. Martin's A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series will be premiering on Sunday, April 17th. Since we know lots of WHEEL OF TIME fans are also fans of this series, we'll be throwing a watching party Sunday night after the official close of the convention. We'll either meet at the hotel bar, or rent a large
suite, depending on interest. Look for details in the JordanCon program.
