Review: SNAFU Con – Year 2
September 22, 2011
Last year, I went to SNAFU Con and found it to be fun and worth the price of admission, which is why I went ahead and prepaid for this year’s con, with the assumption that the date would be the same (weekend toward the end of October). Well, the date changed and it was actually Friday September 9 — Sunday September 11, 2011 instead. This was a bit problematic as we had other events planned for the weekend, so instead of staying at the hotel for the weekend, we stayed home and visited Friday night after work, and then again on Sunday afternoon.
Review: SNAFU Con
October 27, 2010
Well, SNAFU Con has come and gone. It was nicer than what I expected, though not as good as Fanime (which isn’t surprising in the least, especially since this was their first year). I was fairly impressed with what they did with the space they had and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what they do with it next year. One of the things that they offered (which I really liked) was the option to purchase your ticket for next year for $15; they also stated that next year would be 3 days instead of 2 (to be fair it was more like 1.5).
SNAFU Con imminent!

As I mentioned last week, SNAFU Con is starting shortly, so shortly in fact that it is tomorrow! So get your cosplay going and head to the GSR! Unfortunately, I couldn’t convince Jon to join me at the convention, but I will definitely be there both days, and in costume. For those of you still on the fence, here’s some resources for your perusal: SNAFU Con’s Official Website PDF of the Floor Map PDF of the Schedule Official Twitter Account — @SNAFUCon See you there!
SNAFU Con coming up shortly
October 13, 2010
Sometime in the last year, the UNR anime club decided that instead of having their annual Halloween party, they would have a con instead. This year will be the first (hopefully), annual SNAFU Con! SNAFU stands for Sierra Nevada Anime Fans Unite (it also stands for something else, but that’s a highly technical military term and not applicable to this discussion).
