For discussion of the science fiction convention Minicon.
Minicon is an annual gathering of science fiction and fantasy fans sponsored by the Minnesota Science Fiction Society (Minn-StF). The convention is held each year in or near Minneapolis, Minnesota over Easter weekend.

Minicon 52 will be held April 14-16, 2017 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Bloomington - Minneapolis South (formerly the Sheraton Bloomington (formerly the Radisson South)) in Bloomington, Minnesota (quite a few of us have taken to calling it the RadiShTree).

This community is intended for announcements about Minicon, as well as discussion of Minicons past, present, and future.

For discussion of Minn-StF (including upcoming meetings and other events), please see mnstf. Try to keep most discussion of Minicon in this community and most discussion of club stuff that doesn't directly involve Minicon over there, but of course there will be some overlap and occasional crossposting between the two communities. Most folks interested in one should also follow the other.

While some members of the current Minicon committee do read this community and post to it, if you need to discuss anything in particular with a con chair or another concom member, please use the contact information on the website for the current Minicon (see the Minicon index) to get in touch with them; we can't guarantee that they will see posts made to this community.

Some older Minicon LJ communities still exist for historical reasons, so you can see what was posted about those Minicons (before we had minicon): minicon43, minicon42_2007, minicon41, and minicon40. This community is now the one Minicon LJ community to rule them all.

If you have a twitter account, you might also be interested in following @minicon and @mnstf.

If you're on Facebook, you should check out the Minicon group and the Minn-StF group.

If you post pictures taken at Minicon or relating to Minicon to Flickr, you should add them to the pool for the group Minicon and be sure to tag them with "Minicon57" or whatever the appropriate equivalent for the Minicon in question. (Just searching on the tag "minicon" brings up other stuff.)
