Hanabi Con 2015
What: A gathering to play and discuss Hanabi
When: Saturday, May 2, 2015, 10 AM - Midnight
Where: Satterfield's, Cumming, GA
Who: 9 of the finest Hanabi players around

Hanabi Con is an invitation-only gathering of Hanabi lovers. In this inaugural event, we hope to have 9 attendees. There are just a lot of great ways to split nine players when playing Hanabi, yet it's still an easy to manage number.

We're also going to have some presentations / discussions on various aspects of Hanabi. If you've got an idea for a topic, please let us hear about it. If you want to lead the presentation for anything you see currently on the schedule, let us know. The schedule below is tentative.

Attendance is free, though you will be expected to pay for your share of meals. Feel free to bring snacks or drinks.
