Dear folks on LJ

This is really a site to help direct you to the main misti-con pages.

I am here to help.

What is MISTI-Con?

The Group That Shall Not Be Named (HP-NYC), in cooperation with Ray "The Dark Lord Bartender" Smith and the Margate Hotel, Laconia, New Hampshire, are thrilled to announce a new Harry Potter fan convention to be held in May of 2013 called MISTI-Con. Designed to fill the need for smaller, more intimate HP conventions, MISTI-Con will transform the Margate into an immersive magic experience.

The Ministry has suffered great losses after the last wizarding war, and needs new bright individuals to work in its halls. A special project was launched to set up various training centers around the world, including one in a stunning beach resort in Laconia, New Hampshire. As applicants participate in the various training sessions, including academic presentations, combat skills, group discussions and panels, they have the opportunity to be hired on to work in any of the extensive departments in the Ministry. Being that this is a time of growth and renewal, the arts and creative endeavors of our magical citizenry will also be on display, with galleries of art, readings of fiction, and musical performances.

To keep up to date and find out more information about MISTI-Con as it becomes available, please join our mailing list.

You can also find out more by reading our FAQ or by visting our Forum.

May I be the first to say "Woo!"
I say, SQUEEEEEEEEE!

I also reqiested a Snape-Het ship meet up. I am stoked.
That's great! I think I'll skip setting up a Draco/Hermione meet up...methinks there won't be a big crowd for that this time :D

I'll just come to your meet up and secretly ship Draco in my heart!
Hmmm. What sort of interests do you think will be at the fore at MISTI? Did you go to Aeternitas and have a sense of that?

I'd like to have some sort of genfic meetup, if there's likely to be any interest. There didn't seem to be much specifically on gen at Ascendio.
Ideas for informal meetups are being circulated on the Forum. This gives the admins an idea of what's going on. One gal already wants fic reading. I riased a had for Snape-het ship meetup.

I do know they are planning on some entertainment. The Ministry has already provided a rough schedule.

the actual call for formal and informal programming hasn't been made.


I may be presenting, may not. depends if I get selected.

Meetups at MISTI-Con

One of the things we are going to have in place at the con is the ability to request to host your own meetup.

Requested meetups will be provided a space at the con and a time period as well as being advertised in our master schedule, website meetup listing and con program.

HOOOOOORAAAAYYYY!!!!!

I'm so excited that MISTI's on LJ now too. :)
I'm on FB so you dont have to be.

But this LJ presense isn't a replacement for the misti-con website or forums. Do sign up there using the links provided.

All I am doing is being a reflection site to the main con page and the forums. I am the FB proxy, or so it seems. I will try to keep this site sane in comparison to FB. I just post relavant info. Thanks for joining!

Just out of curiosity, are you going to have a fashion show at misti con? it's Ok if you don't.
