An archive of news bits during the organization
of JagFest 2000
JagFest 2000 is history, but you can check out
all the pictures and reports on the main JF2K page. Thanks for
carrying on the tradition Tim!
This is the final JagFest 2K update before the
fest! I must apologize for not having sent this in earlier, but
this has been due to circumstances (for the most part) beyond
my control. Unfortunately, we were unable to secure any kind of
deal with a hotel for discounts on hotel rooms, due to not being
able to provide them with a definite head count of interested
parties. We simply couldn't promise enough people for any of the
hotels we contacted to be interested. Also, there won't be any
JF2K mugs due to the lack of interest. However, the Fest is still
on, and we're still looking forward to a good turnout! OMC Games
will be there with a preview of their upcoming game, and we are
still planning on holding tournaments. Also, BE SURE TO BRING
YOUR LYNX IF YOU HAVE ONE!!! Also be sure to bring Battlesphere
if any of you are interested in holding a Battlesphere tournament
(and I'm sure most of you will!). Door and tournament prizes will
be up for grabs, too! We're looking forward to seeing you all
We are now accepting payment for advance tickets
for JF2K! The ticket price is $7 in advance ($10 at the door).
As an added bonus for registering early, all advance ticket holders
will receive a FREE JagFest 2000 mug! The mug will be white, with
the JF2K logo. Speaking of which.....we are having a contest for
the official JF2K logo, which will appear on the mug! Send your
entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
by May 15th! Also, the deadline for early registration for JF2K
is May 1st, so be sure to send in your payment by then in order
to get the JF2K mug!
Payments should be sent to:
PO Box 8107
Austin, TX 78713
Make checks payable to James Garvin or OMC
The JagFest 2K organizers are preparing to start
sending out tickets to those who send in money for advance tickets.
A prize will be offered for those who send in tickets before May
1, but the prize itself is yet to be decided. You'll be able to
order your advance tickets soon, once the address to send payment
to is decided.
We haven't been able to work out a deal with
any specific hotel for discounts for attendees, but for now you
can find a list of nearby hotels at the following link:
Austin CitySearch Results
The search for an offical hotel (one with discounted
rates for JagFesters) has been found and decided upon, it will
be posted here.
Look for an official press release from the
JF2K organizers in the near future!
