Fishcon events will be a bit different than other conventions. Normal cons (like Armageddicon) have a plethora of events going on at once and people mill about to whatever strikes their fancy. Even cons like Fieldcon which only have one thing going on at a time do not have any real reason for everyone to be involved at any given time. Fishcon is going to be different.
It is seriously worth noting that because we don't have totally fixed areas, and just general rally points that punctuality is critical. It will be very difficult to find the group if you miss the rally time.
If you are only coming for part of the day, show up to one of the Rally points at the designated time
You will be able to identify staff as they will be wearing AP Tee-Shirts (Red breast logo, anime characters on the back).
If you are lost, you can reach us by telephone at 704-848-6326
**We will have a small boat available to us. Durring any general fishing time slot we may use it to take small subsets of humans to an area in the middle of the lake that has good Crappie, Carp, and (for the bold) Muskie**

9pm - Final Rally - Enjoy the catch!We will return to Cheshire to lock down a couple of grills to cook up our catch. Whatever we don't grill we'll throw into a big pot of Gumbo (in case you did not know, AP staff can make anything taste awesome in "Giant Pot of Stuff" form). We will also decide who has won the official challenges of Fishcon:
Most Species Caught
(Plus anything else we come up with while there)
All this is most likely permanent but subject to adjustments, so keep posted!
Don't forget to check out the "Anime?" section. It's surprisingly important to the theme and flow of this con.
