SkyCon1

#1 Post by OB_Gyn_Kenobi » Wed Oct 17, 2018 6:57 pm

There is a new F2F tournament being held at Big Sky Resort, just outside Bozeman, Montana July 11-14, 2019. It's called SkyCon1 and more info can be found here https://www.facebook.com/events/311003133036322/

It's easy to fly into BZN Airport and arrange a shuttle to the resort. The schedule is one Friday night round and two Saturday rounds. This leaves time for a Thursday night social event and Friday AM group activity if there is interest, as well as time on Sunday for travel home or activities in the area.

There is a room block reserved with special rates. You can make lodging reservations by calling 800-548-4486. Make sure to reference SkyCon1 so that any reservations get the group rate. The group rates we got are good for 3 days before and 3 days after that if anyone is interested in making it a longer stay. Go to www.bigskyresort.com for other things to do in the area if you want to come early or stick around later.

There are a lot of options available for accommodations, feel free to ask about them when you call. Please make sure you stay at a Big Sky Resort property so it applies to the room block, which helps keep the event more affordable.

If you have any questions, you can PM me or just post them here.

You don’t need an excuse. Montana is awesome. Can’t wait to see how this tournament pans out. There is a chance that I’ll be in the area for a game, maybe? TBD.

If brainbomb comes to this event, I expect no less than 20 of you to show up, if for nothing else than to view brainbomb in person. Spectacle.

How can that not be sufficient motivation?
