One thing to keep in mind is that this con is literally in the middle of nowhere about 10 miles north of Fort Worth itself. If you're traveling in from out of state, you'll be flying in to DFW or possibly even Love Field. Fort Worth Alliance Airport is not a real airport! The taxi drive alone will take you 30+ min, even if you Amtrak in directly to Fort Worth.
The hotel won't charge you up front for regular rates or the con rate, so you can reserve a room without worrying. However, the planners of this con didn't reserve many rooms.
It will be a very small, intimate, first time con. The hotel's "ballroom" can only hold 150 people. I'm going to support it since I think it's a neat idea. Only time will tell how well it takes off!
