How to BABSCon (2019 Cyberpony Edition!)

How to BABSCon (2019 Cyberpony Edition!)

Jack in, console cowpokes, 'cuz we're twenty minutes into the future. BABSCon is about to begin, so deck your avatar out in your finest swag and let's hack the Gibson. But first, you need to know a few things!

  1. BABSCon 2019 is on Guidebook! Download the Guidebook app onto your iOS or Android mobile device, or just browse it on the web to get all the info you need. Plan your con, stay informed, get alerts… all free to you!
  2. The Con Book is also available in handy-dandy PDF form, usable on any computer, mobile device, or the book-reader of your choice.
  3. This year’s theme: Cyberpunk Ponies…CYBERPONIES! Call it cyberspace or the metaverse, it's all abbout the blinkenlights and looks with enough edge they could score glass. The transequine age is here. 
  4. Da Rules™. Here's our Code of Conduct. Learn it, love it, live it. (It's also in Guidebook!)
  5. Our Schedule of Events. Just wanna browse the web without using the awesome BABSCon 2018 Guidebook? You can still use this old-fashioned link to see what's going on when. But Guidebook is still the way to go…hint, hint!
  6. Our Vendor Area. (Also available in Guidebook…you may sense a pattern developing here.) Plan where to spend all your bits…ALL OF THEM!
  7. With the epic Queen Quake trilogy over, our heroic mascots—Golden Gates, Silver Span, and Copper Chip—will find no rest. A new danger arises threatening to burn away the peace so recently found. Watch during Opening Ceremonies Saturday, April 20, at 10 AM on the Mane Stage to see a new saga begin and how you will decide the outcome.
  8. 6-2-1. "What's 6-2-1?" we hear you ask. Simple…for every day of the con, every attendee (or staffer) should get at least: 6 hours of sleep, 2 nutritious meals, and 1 shower. AT. LEAST. No, a Red Bull and some Cheetos doesn't qualify as a "nutritious meal." People collapsing of exhaustion, low blood sugar, or dehydration don't have a lot of fun, and people who don't shower make things less fun for everyone around them. So…6-2-1, savvy?
  9. Stay Hydrated! In the same vein as 6-2-1 above, look for hydration stations and water service stations throughout the con space and the hotel to fill your water bottles and stay healthy.
  10. ENJOY BABSCon 2019!!
