Registration Now Open!

Greetings Gamers!

Coulee Con is happy to announce that attendee registration is now open for 2016. You can register by visiting the following link goo.gl/vpoZvp This year we have added an early bird registration for additional savings and a VIG Con Supporter pass for attendees interested in offering extra support to the con (and getting a few perks during the weekend).

The con will take place at the La Crosse Center from August 26-28. This is a much larger space than last year and we are excited for the opportunities it provides for gaming, vendors, and other activities. Friday and Saturday will be typical convention days focused on scheduled events, open gaming, tournaments, etc. Sunday will be a day focused on gaming, fundraising, and families. We have partnered with the organization Extra Life and created a Coulee Con 2016 Team (goo.gl/JCo5m6). We hope that attendees and vendors alike will join us in raising money to support Children’s Miracle Network.

As with all cons, we are heavily dependent on the wonderful folks who run games and events. If you have a game or event that you love, please consider running it at Coulee Con. You can submit games or events by visiting this linkgoo.gl/forms/yDy9P4gb6M Once approved, your game or event will appear in our Warhorn event listing.warhorn.net/events/coulee-con-2016

Announcing Coulee Con 2016!

Hello friends and fans!

It’s time for an update! We’re happy to announce that Coulee Con 2016 will be held Friday August 26 through Sunday August 28 at the La Crosse Center. This is a much larger space than last year and we are excited for the opportunities it provides for gaming, vendors, and other activities.

We also are excited to share our plans to broaden the scope of Sunday and make it a day focused on gaming, families, and fundraising. We have partnered with the organization Extra Life and created a Coulee Con 2016 Team. We hope that attendees and vendors alike will join us in raising money to support Children’s Miracle Network. We are also planning to work with other organizations from around the region to bring a variety of opportunities on Sunday that will enhance the Con. We’ll be posting more details over the next few months, but if you’re already eager to join the Coulee Con 2016 Team visit: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=27752

Thanks again to everyone for all the support and feedback. Our first year was a success because of the great gaming community in the Coulee Region and we hope to have even better convention this year.

Thanks for a great Coulee Con 2015!
