If you were waiting to buy your MaxFunCon ticket, you've waited too long... tickets are sold out!
We do, however, expect to release a few tickets over the next few months, once we have our full lineup booked. Last year, we even released one or two just a week or so before the event.
If you snoozed and are concerned you may have losed, get yourself on the wait list. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll let you know if any spaces open up before June 10. Please be sure to include your name, phone number, and whether you wish to purchase a single ticket or a ticket for a couple sharing a bed.

Registration for MaxFunCon opened to the public on Friday, and the response has been overwhelming.
We've filled 86% of the beds at Lake Arrowhead - less than two dozen remain.
Who knows what the future holds, but my honest recommendation is: if you're waiting for something, stop waiting.
