NAUTICON 2015 - THANK YOU ALL!

May 21, 2015 - Bettina

I'd like to thank all those who attended Nauticon 2015. It was lots of fun, and we hope to see you, and your friends, next May! Dates will be settled in August.

There were really great Entertainers for our attendees this year, so before I continue I'd like to extend my sincere and deep appreciation to Greg Wicker of Greggo's Gameshows, Jennifer Pelland, Ebro Helmy, the Plus2Comedy team, and the Shimmy Ninja(s).

And a special thanks to the hard work of the UBS Shameless, of Barfleet. This group added to the overall convention and particularly to our theme by hosting their own special brand of Olympics on the lawn and beach.

We had two special hosts for evening activities of karaoke and dance, and they gave freely of their time and talent to make a space for talented and untalented (me) alike to show their stuff. Thank you!

Throughout the days we had a lot of truly knowledgeable and entertaining folk fill out our panels and tastings. Their contributions to Nauticon are labors of love and dedication. Thank you all.

Sincere thanks to the creative geniuses who populate our Artist Colony. Having their wares adds to Nauticon in a way that makes it a very unique experience.

Finally, I'd like to thank the wonderful people who we call Crew. From the sound and lighting crew of Red-Van, to the lovely lady who keeps us fed; from the guy who makes sure all our panelists and entertainers know that they're due at their microphones and positions on time, to the incredibly awesome soul who keeps the tasting room clean and the shot glasses lined up. Nauticon cannot run without those behind the scenes hands and brains that make this fun and carefree for everyone.

See you all in May 2016. Keep an eye out for our announcements on this web page and our Facebook presence "Nauticons (the 21+ Convention)".

WHAT IS NAUTICON?

Nauticon (The 21+ Convention) is a creative and fun way for fans of anime, science fiction, fantasy, comicbooks, and all things nerdy to get together and get to know one another.

The event is held annually when we rent the entire Provincetown Inn so that you and your friends are part of a truly private event. And did we mention the beach? You can watch the sun set over the water while playing Battleshots at the Barfleet party.

Nauticon has panels ranging from anime to science fiction and comicbooks to webcomics, discussions of Star Trek or Doctor Who, programs run by the Dirty Old Lady's League and the Miracle Providers Drag Queens, and everything in between. Activities include a hike out to the lighthouse, incredible shopping in Provincetown, a creativity table, karaoke, kite flying, fan-run parties, and the Artists Colony. All of this is part of your badge cost!

But wait, there's more! For a small fee you can join in on tastings of meads or Scotch, or food parings like bourbon and chocolate. Or go off to the Provincetown Center and take in a show or go to the tea dance!
