Where to Stay

Our hotel block at the Madison Concourse Hotel is fully booked. If you are still looking for accommodations, there are many hotels and Airbnbs/VRBOs in Madison you are welcome to explore and book independently.



Pre-convention will be held in the Wisconsin Dells from August 15-17! Just a short one-hour drive from Madison, the Dells are the “waterpark capital of the world,” so bring your swimming gear! We will stay in a large cabin, prepare meals together, visit the waterparks, and provide transportation to and from Madison.


The estimated all-inclusive cost of pre-con is $175 to $200 USD. (The more attendees, the lower the cost!) Please fill out this Google form as soon as possible to reserve your spot.


If you know you will definitely attend, we are asking for a down payment of $50 to be paid directly to David Barrett, with the remainder to be paid upon arrival or shortly in advance. You can Venmo @DJBarrett or reach out to David to use a different method of payment.
