SoDak Con Announcements!
04/18/2017 -2017's Charities!
And now for the announcement for our Charities!
Usually we do a blood drive in the name of Lady Chris, but unfortunately this year the United Blood Services is double books for Guns N Hoses and won't be able to be at SoDak Con this year. We're sad, but will not let that stop us from helping our amazing community!
We are doing a drive for our local Rapid City Police Department. Everyday the RAPD has to deal with a vast array of issues and incidents, and there is a high chance of a child being affected by it. We will be doing a drive gathering items to create care packages for our local law enforcement to put in their cars for any child that may be in a crisis, be it a car accident or a domestic disturbance. The following items are what are needed to make these care packages.
A Small Bag (To Carry everything)
Small Stuffed Animals
A Small Blanket
Another Donation Drive that we are doing this year will be for the Humane Society of the Black Hills. The list for this will be updated closer to the convention since their needs vary from day to day.
We will be doing the drive the the Humane Society on Friday and the Drive for the Care Packages for Cops on Saturday of the convention. Just like any donation drive that we have done in the past, every person that donates 4 or more items gets $10 off the next year's convention. (If you use this to prereg for the next year at con, prereg only costs $15!)
We are super excited to be doing these donation drives and can't wait to see how you, the amazing attendees of SoDak Con help our community!

02/22/2017- Announcements & Sponsors!
We are gearing up for a great time, but before we go into all of the cool things going on we want to give a great big shout out to our amazing sponsors. Every year these local businesses help SoDak Con be the amazing event that it is. Our three biggest supporters are Homeslice Media Group, Nan Desu Kan and Action Mechanical.
Each one of them has helped us in so many ways. Homeslice Media Group has provided us with the amazing music that we use at the convention, radio spots and commercials. Nan Desu Kan is our sister con from Denver that has been there to mentor us on how to become bigger and better every year. And Action Mechanical has sponsored us since the first year with it's generous contributions and support. Please tell them thank you and go check them out to the right.
Now to the announcements! We have a new special guest, Bailey Bee! He is an established author that has published works and very popular blog. Check him out and the other amazing guests! While there, you will see that we have the amazing Kevin McKeever coming back to SoDak Con. He's super excited and ready to tell some great stories. To see the rest of the Special Guests, go here.
While working hard to have a great year at SoDak, we have revamped our Weapons and Props Policy to be more concise and straightforward. Check them out here.
Also, we are revamping how panels are done. Now, every hour of panels done you get $10 for the next year's registration, up to $30 for a free badge. This only applies up to the two main panel hosts, but it is a great time to start planning your panels!
Let's get ready to have a great year!

What an amazing year! We had some great times and now it's time to clean up and prepare for next year and the Masquerade Ball.
