Programming General Information:
ChamBanaCon is not just a relax-a-con. It’s the longest running relax-a-con in Central Illinois, so we take the responsibility of promoting Class A #1 Relaxation very seriously. We make a concerted effort to make sure that programming doesn't get in the way of having a good time, doesn't start too early in the morning, doesn't interfer with conversation, conviviality, and commeradery. There's no masquerade -- too much work, man -- but rogue Hearts tournaments or Hoof & Mouth playoffs spring up in the blink of an eye, along with LARPing, sing-a-longs... whatever distractions melt away the stresses of life.
Basic info can be found below. Check out the links for in-depth info.
The consuite at our new hotel is probably THE most perfect location for a consuite EVER! As usual, it will be stocked with coffee, tea, soda, and a wonderful assortment of fruits, veggies AND home-baked goodies that always includes a wonderful supply of chocolate in several varieties.
There is a modest hanging fee of only $.25 per piece, along with the traditional and reasonable commission of only 10% of selling price. Prints are accepted for immediate sale. We accept mail-in art accompanied by a check or money order for return shipping. Art should be of a science fiction / fantasy nature. For more information download the ChamBanaCon Artshow Package or send SASE to:

Come enjoy the merriment, enjoy delicious food, and hear the Guest of Honor speeches. $26 per person, seating is limited to 50 tickets, available via pre-registration or while supply lasts at the convention.
There's some mighty fine filking at ChamBanaCon. The "Never Ending Filk Panel" and the Die Hard Jam on Sunday afternoon, and everything in between. The Filk Room is close to the consuite, so food and drink is always readily available!
Come enjoy RPGs, miniatures, and war gaming with Sean Roberts, gamemaster. There will also be tables available for open gaming.
