Intervention in Rockville, MD (my convention!) – registration price goes up on April 1st!

Hi guys,

The registration price for Intervention in Rockville, MD goes up on April 1. You should register now and tell others to do so as well. There are a few reasons for this.

This event is not a for profit event run by a big corporation. It’s just me, Harknell, and our volunteer staff who make this happen. None of us get paid to do this. We are still a start up company powered by what we can contribute, your registration money, and the volunteer man and womanpower of our staff.

This is why you might notice something special at our event.

Each and every staff member believes so hard in Intervention becoming more than just a fun weekend getaway. We are in this for the long haul, to offer opportunities to the geek community that weren’t previously available. It is our dream to put on the most fun convention where you can also learn something to make your life better all year round. It has not been easy, but oh heck yes we are on that path!

Harknell and I truly have dedicated our entire lives to making this convention the best and most innovative con out there. If we have to work 80 hour weeks, we do it. When you do something you believe in this strongly, it is an absolute joy to do it!

The fact remains that we still absolutely cannot do it without your help and patronage. Every bit of your registration money goes to the event – paying for the space, feeding the guests, lodging the staff who make the event happen, and paying for insurance.

It often takes about 5 years for new events to fully gel. In our first years we have shown a great growth pattern that is more than the statistical average for new events in our area. However, we have to keep this up. I need your help to keep this up. I want to do this faster than the statistical timeframe, and I know we can do it.

It would mean so much to me if we could get a few more registrations in before the price goes up on April 1st.

It is just as important now in year 3 as it was in year 1 for you to pre-register, tell people about us, and donate. Do you have a business that we can help market? Please consider our sponsorship opportunities that help us pay for the event space and the printing of the con materials.

Still, the best thing you can do is attend and tell people what a great time you had. We are still building this, and every amazing brick counts.

If you are unfamiliar with our brand of geekery, look no further than our About Page, and the Archive on the top navigation bar for examples of what we did and will continue to build upon.

If you are familiar with our brand of geekery, prepare yourself for some great new additions to the programming this year. We have things planned that no other con has ever done before – to be announced as soon as the ink dries. The more registrations we get, the more we can do.

I can’t thank you enough for your support, help spreading the word about what we are doing, and patronage. I truly consider it an honor to be able to put something good and geeky back into the world. I have never worked on an event that managed to progress so quickly, but we still need every bit of your support that you can give! :)
