My fellow Community fans, who inspired this convention
What are you doing the day of the next full moon? Want to join a Community flashmob? It’s October 18th in LA. We’re meeting at 2pm, flashmob to start at 3; at Universal CityWalk. The details and Facebook invitation is the link. Join us! Just be careful of the werewolves.
CommuniCon weekend flashmob! Let’s participate this thing!
It’s October! Do you know what that means? COMMUNICON!
Now don’t be sad if you didn’t get tickets. You still can! You can still see the Writers Panel with Andy Bobrow, Tim Saccardo, Hilary Winston, and more! You can still participate in the Writers vs Fans Trivia Contest (and I think they are probably boning up following their humiliating defeat during the last con, so we could use all the help we can get)! You can still participate in the Costume Contest! You can still see the “No Small Parts” Panel with Charley Koontz (Neil), Danielle Kaplowitz (Vicki), David Neher (Todd), and more (my personal favorite from the last con)! You can still see the Q&A with the developers of Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne video game! AND YOU CAN STILL SEE DAN HARMON AND CHRIS McKENNA!
This is going to be an amazing experience for Community fans. I really hope you don’t miss it.
Hi Gillian, I missed the Kickstarter campaign (rats!) and I plan on buying tickets, but I just wanted to know where/when I can get the official CommuniCon t-shirt? Thank-you, fellow human being!
Hi there! Excellent question.
Sadly, I actually don’t think we’ll have extras for sale at the convention this year. I ended up losing a lot of money on merchandise last time around, and since they were a reward on Kickstarter, and most people chose the $40 admission option rather than the $50 option (which included a t-shirt), I have to assume that most people attending aren’t interested in purchasing one at the event. So unfortunately it isn’t really worth the risk of ordering a lot of extras to try to sell. However, there may be a few. And I will have t-shirts from February’s CommuniCon available, for people interested in a keepsake from the first convention.
In case I’m wrong, I am planning to collect the names/email addresses of people who ARE interested in a t-shirt, and if there’s enough interest, I’ll place another order.
And, actually, if enough of you out there tell me right now that I’m wrong, I’d consider taking orders now to have them ready for you at the convention.
Also, there will be some other merchandise available for purchase at the convention.
Attention Greendale Community College: A wonderful Human Being has agreed to organize a paintball outing the Friday of CommuniCon weekend, assuming there is enough interest. This is separate from CommuniCon; I’m just helping to spread the word.
She found a pretty great option, which includes a field that’s all ours and a private referee. The price is $35/person, which includes 200 paintballs and all equipment. If more than 30 people sign up, the price would drop to $30/person. Transportation isn’t included, but organizing carpools shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
If you’re interested, please email afistfulofcommunies (a) gmail (dot) com. In your email, please include the number of people interested, and whether you’d be able and willing to drive yourself and/or others.
To enter the raffle, email your answers to the following trivia questions with the subject “CommuniCon Raffle” by 1:30 pm Eastern / 10:30 am Pacific to communicon1 (at) gmail (dot) com. Winners will be notified via email by 8:00 pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific.
1. How many people voted, respectively, in the Tranny Queen and the Student Body President elections?
2. In which episode(s) does Quendra appear?
3. Whose face appears on the “Welcome to Greendale: You’re Already Accepted!” poster that’s in “For a Few Paintballs More?”
4. How many siblings, if any, does Britta have? Brother(s) or sister(s)?
5. How many episodes of Cougarton Abbey aired?
Good luck, Human Beings!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS RAFFLE IS FOR ADMISSION ONLY. IT DOES NOT INCLUDE AIRFARE, ACCOMMODATIONS, OR ANYTHING ELSE.
Hope everyone’s had time to review and get excited about the CommuniCon schedule!
For anyone who doesn’t have a ticket and wants to come, I’ll be doing a raffle tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 13, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific / 1:00 p.m. Eastern. At that time, I’ll be posting 5 Community trivia questions on tumblr, twitter, facebook, and the Community subreddit. To enter the raffle, you must email your answers to communicon1 (at) gmail (dot) com by 10:30 a.m. Pacific/1:30 p.m. Eastern. Winners will be notified via email by 5:00 p.m. Pacific/8:00 p.m. Eastern.
Obviously I can’t police this, but if you answer the questions without having to resort to googling, it’d be a lot cool cool cooler of you.
Just 8 hours until I can stop harassing everybody with these reminders! We’re up to an amazing $17,651. I would LOVE to hit $18,000, which we can exceed if just TEN more people donate at the “cheap seat” level of $40! Because of that, I’ve freed up some more spots at that reward level.
Thank you all so much for your donations, reblogs, retweets, and shares! Just another work-day to go until we can all get down to the business of just being excited for the event itself.
So get your spot (or T-shirt or DVD) and tell your friends to do the same before time runs out!
October 19 is finally October 19 again. Don’t miss out.
To Clarify: CommuniCon Will Not Be Held Twice a Year Going Forward
If you’ve been holding off on donating or getting a spot to October’s CommuniCon because you think there will be another in a few months, please know that’s actually not the case. Sorry if this has been unclear, but it was never the intention to make this a bi-annual event, we just needed to work out the timing. Unless you want to wait another year for the next one, don’t forget to grab your spot before the Kickstarter campaign ends tomorrow at 5pm Pacific time!
There are still spots left at multiple levels, including at the $40 and 2-for-$80 levels. Get yours while they last!
As we’ve said from the beginning, there is currently no plan to sell tickets to CommuniCon after the Kickstarter campaign ends. There are still admission spots available at multiple reward levels, but time is running out to get yours! Thanks again so much to those of you who have donated and spread the word! Please continue to do so. The more people who donate and attend, the better it will be for everyone!
Very quick Kickstarter update: I’ve added another of the $500 reward levels for people that want to attend (which includes, among other things, front-row seats to every panel and access to the green room), as well as a new $500 level for those that can’t attend but want cool stuff (including an item signed by as many writers, producers, and cast members as possible). So if you’d like to up your pledge, or just tell someone else about these new options, go nuts!
