KapCon annual statement 2014

Welcome back. Kapcon 23 is over and we are now working towards Kapcon 24 in 2015.

Kapcon 23 was a good year with several successful initiatives, including:

  1. It saw the introduction of Adventure Squad, which caters for Kapcon’s younger players. We see the need for this growing in the future as many of our attendees register for that most gruelling and rewarding game of parenthood.
  2. Kapcon’s Code of Conduct was formalised to allow for the organisers to act swiftly and with certainty on poor conduct and misbehaviour.

Overall, attendance continues to gradually decline, though this seems to be in line with the hobby throughout Wellington, due to the explosion of so many great other RPG events around the country.

The Kapcon organisation committee for 2015 is: Ellen Boucher and Sam Walker as lead organisers; Daniel Atkins, Norman Cates, Nick Cole, Malcolm Harbrow, Scott Kelly, and Russ Kale in support.

If you wish to contact the organisers for any reason, please send an email to: kapcon@gmail.com.

The Kapcon organisers have identified many matters that require attention for 2015, though the following matters are given of priority:

  1. The organisers are to improve their communication with their attendees, starting with this annual statement. You can expect to see the same again at the start of each year. All Con related information throughout the year will be consolidated and posted on this site, with links to it on NZRaG and Facebook. Kapcon will also look to reduce its non-Con related notices.
  2. Kapcon feedback is to be sent to Kapcon’s email address. Once received, it will be acknowledged and forwarded to the organisers for discussion. We don’t promise that every feedback will receive a substantive response, but if it is sent by email it will be heard and considered. Kapcon organisers will also be responding to feedback posted elsewhere, such as on Facebook or NZRaG discussions, with a suggestion that it be sent via email.
  3. The practice of sending flyers throughout Wellington and around the country will be re-introduced.
  4. Kapcon will continue to encourage GMs to run a wide variety of games. We will also be soliciting attendees’ game and genre interests later this year, as well as through registration. If you are not sure what to run, then consider contacting Kapcon by email for ideas. You can also expect to see us post up a list of SDC entries that seem especially suited to be picked up and run by GMs who may not have a game of their own design ready to run.

Thanks to all who attended Kapcon 23. We hope to see you all and others at Kapcon 24.
