need to register for the convention.
Unicon is to be held at the University of Melbourne, Parkville, from
Friday October 3rd until Sunday October 5th. Players can register
at any time during the convention, or preferably, by pre-registration prior
to the convention.
Tournaments are run in 2½ hour sessions, which are scheduled
to start 3 hours apart. Sessions start at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m.
and 8 p.m. There are three sessions on Friday, four on Saturday, and two
on Sunday. See the enclosed entry form for more details.
Entry and registration
Players can register at any time during the convention, or preferably,
by pre-registration before the convention.
Everyone must register with the convention before they can enter any
of the tournaments. Unicon is Melbourne's cheapest gaming convention. Convention
registration is only $7 and tournaments cost $2 per session. All player
who pre-register before September 5 get one free session of their choice.
All pre-convention entries should be posted to:
P.O. Box 47,
University of Melbourne,
Parkville, Vic., 3052.
Cheques should be made out to Capricon . That's right: Capricon
; the bank account hasn't been changed from last year. Please do not
send cash through the post.
Although entry to tournaments is filled on a "first come, first served"
basis, every effort will be made both before and during the convention
to help you play what you'd like to play when you'd like to play it. While
team entry is preferred, individuals who enter team events will be grouped
together into teams to the best ability of the tournament convention organisers.
