You don’t have to know who sawed Courtney’s Boat, or what happened to the Ten of Clubs or who was in Room 770. You don’t even have to read the stuff. All you need to be is a fan who enjoys the company of other fans, faun ches for a con with lotsa food and no speeches, likes the notion of a suites hotel, and wants to attend the oldest (and almost the last) true Relaxacon. Midwestcon is waiting for you.
