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 is a creative and fun way for mature fans (21+) to get together and get to know one another. The event is held yearly in wonderful Provincetown, the Cape town that lends itself to discovery and self-discovery. We rent the entire Provincetown Inn for this convention, so that you and all your friends are part of a truly private event. And did we mention the beach? Yes, the convention hotel is on the bright sandy beach, facing the Bay area! You can watch the sun set over the water while holding a beer in one hand and playing with a boffer sword in the other!

Nauticon is not an Anime con, or a science fiction con, or even a relaxation event. It's more like a college weekend away with a lot of friends, new and old, and you don't have to go back to school on Monday.

Nauticon has panels ranging from Anime to Bronydom, programs run by the group Proper Porn for Distinguished Ladies©, science fiction, comic books, video gaming and everything in between. Activities include a hike out to the Lighthouse in the morning, incredible shopping, less than a mile away in Provincetown, a creativity table in the lounge, Kraken Karaoke, kite flying on the beach, open fan-run parties, and the Artists Colony where you'll never find anything made in China. We host special Events like concerts, drag shows and onstage body painting, in a personal and privately fun way, because our beautiful little theater has 300 seats, limited for just the right size for an audience. There are tastings for meads, whiskeys, and food pairings like bourbon and chocolate. In the past, we have hosted these Guests of Awesome (GoA): Voltaire in 2014 (a writer and singer of songs that nerds love), Chuck Huber our 2013 GoA (a voice actor and anime director and writer), Tom Wayland (the anime director and voice actor) and Jamie McGonnigal (a Broadway actor and LGBT activist). We think that they cover a whole bunch of stuff that nerds over 21 think is interesting.
