Outdoor Sports Schedule for DEXCON 17Updated 6/24/14
You may ONLY reserve seats in DEXCON 17 events if you are pre-registered.
Click here to pre-register for DEXCON 17 if you have not already done so.
To reserve your spots in the events you want to play in, send eMail to THIS ADDRESS ONLY and include your name and the events you want to register for NOTE: You may ONLY choose Event Codes which are SHOWN IN GREEN. DO NOT CHOOSE CODES WHICH ARE SHOWN IN RED and have LOCKS on them. Red Event Codes indicate locked events which you cannot register for, later rounds in tournaments which you will be automatically advanced to if you win the preliminary rounds, or events which have already filled up to capacity (if we have a chance to update them).
We allow you to select second and third choices for a given time slot; indicate this clearly in whatever fashion you'd like, otherwise we will just leave that slot open. And of course, since the grids are not yet posted, we understand that you may want to reserve spots in one or two popular events immediately and then send follow-up eMails with additional codes once you figure out how to plan the rest of your convention schedule.
If you have already sent in a list of events from the Signature Event and LARP Schedule that was posted on May 18th, those events are already reserved, and you do NOT need to add them again. If you want to UN-reserve a spot in one of those events, just be clear about it in your email, and we will delete you appropriately. Each time you send more information, we will send you back your up-to-date schedule.
We will reply within 48 hours with a confirmation that your reservations were received. If you do NOT get a confirmation, assume that your codes are NOT received and try again. Note that you MUST include a valid eMail reply-to address for us to reach you to confirm!

F0460: Reach Volley. In this new game of catch, the twist is that the ball and gloves themselves are made of velcro; the idea is to outwit your opponent based on the way you return the ball.

F0668: Horseshoes. Played in the bright morning sun, participants try to score the most points with our regulation sized horseshoes. Horses not included. Neither are penguins.

However, there IS another event where we will, so you'll just have to scour the Complete Schedule to find it. Friday, 2:00PM - 4:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Serious, All Ages.
F0817: Team Bocce. The classic game of Bocce, in which players throw their balls and try to get closest to the pallino. Played with regulation sized Bocce balls in our glorious outdoor area!

F0873: Ladder Ball. Ladder Ball is a lawn game that is played like horseshoes, except you don't have to worry about the weight of the horseshoes or your grass getting torn up.

Saturday, 2:00PM - 4:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.
F0914: Ring Toss. Played in the bright afternoon sun, participants try to score the most points by throwing rings at a poor, innocent stake. You uncaring fools. What did that stake ever do to you? Is anyone actually reading this? Saturday, 4:00PM - 6:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.
F1040: Lawn Bowling. Using light plastic pins and a plastic ball, see how you do in this otherwise officially scored bowling game. Played in single elimination format. Sunday, 11:00AM - 2:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Serious, All Ages.
