Arisia is having a "Relaxacon" ( This is an opportunity for all of us to get together without having to do any real work.

Activities Include:
Con Den (with food and drinks - a cross between a Con Suite and a Staff Den)
Movies (perhaps a marathon Hugo Nominees viewing session?)
Pools (indoor and outdoor) and Jacuzzi
Child play area
Beach, swimming, jogging
Explore the Cape
Local trips (Provincetown?) & hikes & other sights
Whale watch
Nearby shopping, restaurants
Free Wifi Access (this was very popular last year!)


This is meant as a get together for Staff, Volunteers, friends, and others interested in Arisia. We expect there to be lots of talk about SF, SMOFing, and food / drink. People might also want to bring some light games to play. Think of it as a big Staff Den. We will have a Hospitality House on the Beach with a full kitchen, deck overlooking the ocean, and two upstairs "break-out" rooms for gaming and / or movies and / or music.

In order to provide food / drink for a Consuite, the year-ahead cost is $15 for the weekend or $10 for Friday or Saturday. Sunday is free as it is a half day (these prices will probably go up as we get closer to the event). Children under 5 are free and between 5 and 21 are half price. No babysitting is provided, so parents are responsible for their own children.

To register for the Relaxacon itself via PayPal, you can go to (please be sure to fill in the “Name of Membership” field during checkout, especially if buying more than one membership).
