No Such Organization, a campus club for fans of science-fiction, fantasy, gaming,
Japanese animation and all that that implies, hosts No Such Convention ("NonCon" for short)
at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY every year. This year, it will be running from March
3rd through March 5th 2006. NonCon is a convention that aspires to bring together a cornucopia
interests in the "geek" field, and reflects the widely divergent interests of the members
of the No Such Organization.
A range of events are planned to entertain each kind of fandom.
In the past, discussion panels have ranged from authors discussing their works to open
forums on role-playing experiences. Also open all weekend will be the "Open Gaming Room",
well stocked with a plethora of board, card, dice, and other table-based games.
There will also be video screenings. Our line up includes anime and various independent films.
We welcome video submissions for this. In past years
we've had movies by Zen for Free and
Breakfast of Demons.
During the convention, role-playing games in systems as diverse as Advanced Dungeons and Dragons,
World of Darkness, M-Force, GURPS, and Live Action Role-Playing have been offered.
There will also be a dealer's room, where past offerings have included comic books,
role playing games, fandom-related buttons and bumper stickers, fantasy-themed jewelry, video games, DVD's and more.
Guests confirmed for this year can be found on the guests page, and will be listed
