We're only a couple of months away from UKON, the annual gaming convention held by the Miskatonic Student Union, the official gaming club of the University of Kentucky. This year, UKON will be held on Friday, February 27, from 5pm to 10pm; and Saturday, February 28, from 10am to midnight. The convention will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the UK Student Center, with events spilling out into adjoining rooms and the first-floor Cat's Den. Admission is five dollars per day, and parking is free.

Every year, UKON attracts several hundred people from all across the Bluegrass region. It's a real blast, and if you haven't come before and have time this year, you should. We've got tabletop roleplaying from some of the best Game Masters in Lexington (and beyond), demos of new and interesting games, an artists alley showcasing some of the finest art local talents, a vendor area with gaming dealers from near and far, and a host of unique gaming events, including the Gamer Spelling Bee, the World Series of Geek Culture Trivia, and the UKON Auction.

We're especially happy to be bringing Pathfinder Society organized play events to the convention this year! Right now, we've got one session planned, with another two to four possibly appearing on the schedule before the year is out. My real hope is to be able to bring all four of the GenCon modules to UKON this year, and things are looking good to make that a reality.

If you're interested in participating in this year's UKON as more than just an attendee, drop us a line at president@ukmsu.com. We accept registration for vendors, artists, and special media guests until January 15, but we only accept registration for gaming events until December 31. Pre-registering your game gets you in free on that day of UKON, as well as giving you a chance to showcase your gaming talents for a wider audience than you might normally get. If you want to keep up with events as they are posted, stop by our forums at http://ukmsu.org.

UKON 2009 is also a very special event for the Miskatonic Student Union in other ways. This year, we celebrate 20 years on the University of Kentucky campus, and ten years of UKON. After nearly a decade, the stars are right... for a party! We sincerely hope that you'll join us for this occasion--and bring a friend! If you're going to be in the Lexington area at the end of February, there are a lot of worse ways to spend a day (or two), and it's always a heck of a good time.

I'm planning on coming up for UKON (I live a little over an hour south of Lexington). I'm hopeful that someone will run some PFS events other than those four that ran at GenCon.

We're hoping the same thing, but right now everything is still being worked out. Great to hear someone from the forums will be coming out for the convention!

Jeremy,

Do you ever attend any of the D&D Meet-ups at the UK student center? I made it to my first this past weekend and had a good time (played soem LFR). Have you ever considered running PFS games there? I would definitely be up for playing.

I think a different crew is running it this year.

I'm up for running all weekend if we are short of GM's, otherwise I'd like to play some PFS.

I think it's scheduled for 3/25 and 3/26. Unfortuantely, that's the same weekend as Megacon in Orlando.
