GottaCon 2011 Date Confirmed


By Andrew Shin

Victoria, BC's own GottaCon has been confirmed for its 3rd straight year. The 3 day gaming convention will take place from February 4th to 6th at the Pearkes Recreation Centre located at 3100 Tillicum Rd. The unique aspect of the GottaCon gaming convention is that it will be open from 5pm on Friday and straight through to 7pm on Sunday. That accounts for 50 hours...yes, you read that right...of non-stop gaming debauchery. GottaCon promises a bit of everything from video gaming to role playing to collectables.

GottaCon's founders Evan Hatch and Carson Upton expect the 2011 event will be their best, estimating approx. between 1,200 and 1,500 attendees. The 2010 GottaCon attracted 900 attendees, which in itself was highly successful for its sophomore year.
