Membership Is For Life
Annual Dues: $0
Over the past 8 years, our ragtag gathering of eclectic personalities has grown into a tight-knit group that has taken on the title of The Weetacon Tribe. As a Weetacon attendee, you are automatically granted membership into the Tribe!  There’s no initiation ritual, there’s no membership fees, there’s just a circle of friends and network of support.
The Weetacon Tribal Fund (aka WTF) started when a few attendees started rounding up their registration fees and told Wendy to use it to help people out if they …

When you come to Weetacon, you need to keep in mind that we’ve turned almost everything into some kind of competition, including drinking. Welcome to the world of Drink, Bitch.
Rule #1: Be the first to correctly name the artist of the song that is playing at any given time.
And that’s it! If you are first, you get to tell someone to “DRINK, BITCH!” and if you’re not…well, we hope you’ve got a ride home, since you’ll be the one doing the drinking. Be careful about getting too cocky about being …

Ever since the inaugural Weetacon, Esteban’s parents have taken us under their wings and made sure that we are fed well and kept warm during out Green Bay Adventures. Not only does June spend a week cooking for all of us, one year Ward showed up to help out 24 hours after an allergic reaction that led to an emergency trip to the hospital. Now THAT is dedication to the cause!
Because of their continued support of all of us, June and Ward have become the Official Weetacon Team Parents so …

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES!
We Like Our Weetaconners Uninjured
We probably don’t need to tell you this, because no Weetaconner has ever pushed themselves too hard and then gotten injured, right?  (HA HA, we’re so funny!)
Please be sure to listen to your body, your doctor and your liver when considering whether to participate in any and all Weetacon activities. You should only participate if you are currently in good health and unbroken. Weetacon takes no responsibility for any injuries that might happen!

This year there are two happy making good time fundraisers going on as part of our Weetacon shenanigans:
Weetacon Bake Sale (Thursday-Sunday, in the Waterford Room)
We have some serious bakers amongst our attendees, so be sure to swing by the bake sale table more than once. There’s usually at least one bacony baked good, and there’s always the One True Dessert that makes everyone sad when it runs out (Samoa cupcakes, anyone?). And it’s a proven fact that cookies bought to support a charity taste 100% better that those store bought …

Anything! In previous years, attendees have donated gift baskets, beauty products, gift cards, books, food items, DVD box sets and handmade crafts such as jewelry, scarves, quilts, pottery and framed prints.
This might also be a good opportunity to RE-GIFT something that you received over the holidays but know someone else would appreciate more.
Just send Shawn a brief description, photo and the estimated retail value of your donation (shawn@weetacon.com) and we will get it listed on the raffle page ASAP. Bring your item along with you to Weetacon or …

Aside from the fact that the success of the raffle is directly proportional to the number of awesome and amazing raffle items, the three highest ticket earners of all time were from Weetacon attendees. There’s a lot of glory in that! Ok, glory doesn’t pay the bills.
How about this? For the Weetacon 2014 Weetathalon Games, you’ll receive 2 points for every raffle item you donate (raffle item must be worth $50 retail or higher to count for the points. Several items amounting to the minimum $50 can also be combined …
