On a "Oh, yes, I should make note of this here, shouldn't I" note:

I am one of the people behind a brand new event in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, that we hope will grow to be a resource for the Upper Midwest - Paganicon. It is designed as a hotel-centered Pagan conference, held in the spring (when no one wants to be camping anyway) as an alternative and addition to the excellent summer camping festivals in the Upper Midwest. Some people don't like camping, some people have health issues that make it hard, some people have limited vacation time, some people just like hotels. Plus, it's the spring time: why not do something fresh and renewing and wonderful?

We are delighted to welcome John Michael Greer as our first guest of honor: he'll be presenting a keynote, a workshop, and participating in a panel on Paganism and environmental issues. We also have an amazing and packed range of programming in store, including two nights of musical events, two food events, rituals, artistic projects, a hospitality suite, and much more.

(We are not offering children's programming this year, as we want to make sure we don't overwork our wonderful volunteers, but we're definitely looking at it for future years.)

Our registration is $60. Registration is open until March 4th (since both our food events and some other goodies we're planning need a final count for our preparation time). That includes all conference events, both food functions, all musical events, etc - everything but your own lodging and food.

More information is available at http://tcpaganpride.org/paganicon and there'll be additional updates going up in the next week or two (I anticipate links to the schedule, food options, and music details will go up this weekend.)

Hotel rooms start at $87 a night, and there are tons of food options within walking distance at all price points. Our hotel is just west of downtown Minneapolis, and accessible in multiple formats from public transportation. The hotel is entirely smoke-free. 

If you've got questions, I'm glad to answer them here, or you can email info@tcpaganpride.org (which I see, but which is normally answered by our communications chair).

Good luck to y'all. It's always hard to get a new event off the ground.

Jenett - is there interest in having more people for panel discussions?  I'd be interested in helping do a discussion on ethics or something along those lines.

We do have a couple of panels potentially looking for more people, but I don't think any of them are ethics related.

You can see the schedule here: http://paganicon2011.sched.org/ - items welcoming more panelists have a note saying so. (And questions about that can go to programming@tcpaganpride.org .

We also very much hope there will be a next year, too Smiley

(The folks organizing this - including me - have a core experience running a 2 day Pagan Pride event for the last several years: while this is a step more complex, due to the larger amount of time and programming, we're pretty confident it's going to be really cool. Plus, anyone there gets to see me run around making sure things happen, which I am told can be amusing ;> )

Break a leg (or someone else's if the spirit moves you).  And watch out for those Dianic rituals.  I'm told they'll bite you on the ass if you're not careful.  Wink

Paganicon's over, and we had a totally awesome time. (*I* had a totally awesome time, even around running the thing). We had tons of amazing conversation, great food, a wonderful hotel staff, and the few minor crises were all solved quite quickly.

And I got to spend bunches of time with HeartShadow and Veggiewolf! Which was even more awesome. (erm. You may tell I am tired because I have run out of adjectives.)

I can also, without reservation, recommend John Michael Greer if any of you ever get a chance to see him speak somewhere. He's accessible and friendly while being thought-provoking and challenging. (We'll also be posting his keynote online in the near future, and I'll throw a link here when it's up. Probably tomorrow, when I am up to fighting with my scanner.)

One of the things I kept thinking, was "This is the kind of conversation that TC has." (Which is one of the things I was hoping for. Along with the food.) Sturdy, meaty, different kinds of stuff, rather than rehashing Topic 101. (I had two different people who've been in our local community for 20+ years tell me they were learning new stuff all the time, which made me go "Yay!") So, thank you to TC, for giving me some framework over the years about how to encourage that kind of conversation.

Sounds great!  I'm sorry I couldn't make it. I assume you'll be hosting one again next year?

We will!

Exact details forthcoming: my hope is to have a contract by late April. Almost certainly the same hotel: they loved us, we loved them, it's all good. And likely something like the same time (late March, anyway, we need to look at specific dates a bit more.)

Awesome! I would dearly love to attend next year. I'm glad everything went well this year (although I admit I'm not sure how it wouldn't go well, given your hard work and attention to detail.)

Tired.  YES.

But it was a blast.  I'm so glad I went!

And yes, I am planning on going next year - and if it's welcome, speaking again .....

so, want a flier? Wink

While I couldn't have come this year, I wish I could've! Cheesy It took me a moment of sitting here going "Wait... isn't Minneapolis like right across the border?". A quick look on Google maps and yes, yes it is. Cheesy

It time and money permits (I'll be in college at that point), I'll so come next year!
