Our designated charity for this year is CarterBloodCare, and we're hosting a blood drive! Follow this link to set up an appointment to donate.


Our pre-con membership sales have now closed, but you still have the opportunity to purchase at the door! See this page for details. 


Apologies, but we are having some issues with our hosting service. You may see some missing graphics or old banners. We're working to get this resolved as soon as possible.



From the FenCon Staff to all of our members and guests: 

In mid-August, the Sheraton DFW hotel notified us that, due to a major computer glitch, they have oversold by over 150 rooms on FenCon weekend. The only way to manage their room inventory is to relocate many of our attendees to their sister property across the street, the DoubleTree DFW North. 

As a part of the concessions which the hotel is making to our convention, they will: 

  • run a continuous shuttle between the two hotels during convention hours
  • provide a $20 food voucher per day for each relocated guestroom for the DoubleTree restaurant
  • the Hotel will be contacting attendees individually if their room is one of those being moved

The hotel has assured us that everyone who booked an accessible room will stay at the Sheraton.

Obviously this situation will be inconvenient, but Fencon was faced with the choice of working with the hotel to manage the situation, or canceling the convention, which we certainly did not want!

We hope the meal vouchers will help, and the shuttle should be a convenient way to move between the hotels. We do ask that you please not drive between hotels, as the parking spaces at the Sheraton will be nearly at capacity already.

We appreciate your understanding about the issue, and ask that you respect the staff at the various hotels – it isn’t their fault, and they are working hard to accommodate our needs. 


Thank you!

FenCon Management and Staff
