Rising Sun Pre-Con
May 16, 2008

Sun., Aug. 3 at 9 a.m., thru Tues., Aug. 5
Lancaster Host, Lancaster PA

Welcome to the third Rising Sun mini-con which features dedicated play of Victory in the Pacific in seven rounds of pure swiss format. Not actually part of WBC proper, Rising Sun is sort of an opening skirmish for those who can't get enough of a good thing.

Is Centurion status in your future? Send out a patrol to Rising Sun for an early start to your gaming Campaign week. Or if a stay for all of WBC isn't possible, get your gaming fix during the pre-con weekend.

WBC attendees have long lamented the many conflicts between their favorite WBC events. So many games, so little time...

No event has tested its faithful more than Victory in the Pacific whose pure seven rounds of swiss play have taken place in the midst of all sorts of other gaming temptations during the height of WBC for 14 consecutive years. During that run, the faithful have always heard the laments of others that if only it did not comflict with X, they'd be there too. Well, now you have your chance. By moving to a Pre-Con slot, Victory in the Pacific frees you from the temptations of those other gaming sirens and allows you to experience the pure thrills of seeing just how many games you can win in seven rounds .... while freeing you for all the other WBC events commencing as Rising Sun draws to a close.

With play in a Pre-Con, those making the pilgrimmage to WBC can get more bang for their travel buck while increasing the number of events they can play during a glorious eight-day stint of uninterrupted gaming if they so choose. Valhalla for gamers ... here on Earth and only at WBC.

Tribune members may freely partake in all of BPA’s Pre-Cons during the three days preceding WBC. Play at Rising Sun for non-Tribune/Sponsor level members requires a separate registration fee of $30 for BPA members pre-registered by July 25, or $40 for all others, payable to the BPA, 7766 Valley View Court, Hickory, NC 28602. This fee can be paid separately or in addition to other WBC fees noted on the WBC pre-registration form.

WBC special room rates at the Lancaster Host, Continental Inn, and Red Roof Inn apply to all days of the pre-con. See our travel and accommodations page for details.
