Hey, all. If it's gonna happen, I'd better get my ass in gear and schedule Armada 3 with the hotel.

But it's tough, because I don't want to overlap with other big convention weekends (or national holidays).  But there isn't one single registry of conventions that I could look at.  So research isn't trivial.  Which is how I could use your help.

For these proposed dates, please let me know if you know why it would NOT be a good weekend for Armada 3:

April 14-16
April 21-23
April 28-30
May 5-7
May 12-14
May 19-21

thanks for the help!

I will ask the local group in Dayton, OH to see what dates wouldn't work. I know the International Steampunk Symposium is April 28th-30th, 2017. I know some people are planning to go to that.

April 14-16 is Norwescon 40 in Seattle where we'll be running Artemis.
April 16 is a holiday (Easter).

Marcon will be May 12-14 in Columbus, OH. It's a pretty big science fiction/fantasy convention that used to have a reputation for rivaling Worldcon.

While Artemis Armada does not completely draw from the same pool as science fiction conventions, I expect a conflict with Marcon would inconvenience more attendees than a conflict with Norwescon.

I usually get busy around Easter. I would like to see how Armada fairs around in May.

I've put this out to our crew and am getting some feedback.  Right now the only weekend that has been shot down is Easter weekend but we are still checking.

Really looking forward to attending Armada III, but I feel that mid- late May is bad considering many high schools, colleges and universities are working towards wrapping up semesters and concerned about those of us who are part of that system.

Thanks!

Pax East falls right in this time frame but they haven't announced a date yet.

I asked around to my crew in general. Easter is of course a bad time, in addition, two of my crew will be celebrating their wedding anniversary on the first weekend of may and would prefer that Armada III NOT be on may 5-7.

What better way to celebrate your wedding anniversary than at Armada!

What we really need is someone to get married at Armada.  

I'll bring some single fellas along if someone will bring the single ladies we'll see if we can make some magic happen.  

Thom just needs to get ordained so he can conduct the ceremony.  

We can play Artemis at the reception.  It is a dream come true.

.....(insert dream sequence here).....

In fact Patti, who runs the ballroom, is ordained. She conducts a great ceremony.

"And by the powers invested in me by the State of Ohio {crowd - "And The Klingon High Council!"} do hereby declare you man and wife."   Maybe the Royal Manticoran Navy can provide a sword-arch...??   #BringsTearsToMyEyes  

I must ask/beg/plead that Armada III NOT be scheduled on April 28th-30th.  Seems UB Con decided that was #PrimeTime for them.  I have a long history with this Con, been to 25 of the 27 they've had so far, would like to extend my streak to 26 consecutives.  AND it is where I first saw Artemis. 

Nota Bene that Oct 2016 and April 2017 both start on Saturdays, so if you need to visualize that month, just use next as a template.  Easter Sunday is 4/16, would 4/21-4/23 {weekend AFTER Easter}  fit everyone's schedule??  And avoid cross-scheduling w/ other Cons??

May 5-7 would be very bad for me and others in the Toronto area. Anything else is good though.

Has there been any more talk about this?

Outside of Easter weekend Hyperion doesn't have any major conflicts.
