  1. Website | Facebook Page | Facebook Group | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | Patreon WHEN: April 27 - 29, 2018 WHERE: Deer Creek State Park Lodge and Conference Center in Sterling, Ohio. It's our first year at this location, but after all of the growth we've seen in the last two years, it was time to go for something bigger - and with an indoor pool (with a stag on the floor of the pool. Yes. A stag). It overlooks the gorgeous Deer Creek Lake, and there is everything from casual lodge rooms with double beds, to woodsy cabins with bunk beds and gorgeous views. WHAT: The Convention of Ice & Fire, a convention themed around George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, is the premiere event of its kind in America. We are not-for-profit and totally fan run. WHO: Some of the coolest people you'll ever meet, including Fandom Favorites, such as Amin and Ashley from A Podcast of Ice and Fire, Aziz and Ashaya from History of Westeros, Rawrist, and PoorQuentyn from ASOIAF University! WHY: Because who doesn't want to party with nerds for a weekend? I, like many other attendees, saw the convention online and thought: I have to go to this. I packed up two friends inour car, drove 8 hours, made some of the best friendships, and had some of the best times imaginable at this convention. Everyone is warm, welcoming, and basically a second family. I went from regular attendee to devoting all of my livelihood to volunteer, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I am so excited for all the exciting things coming to our sixth year! Attendees voted, and this year's theme is Direwolves and Dragons: Wild and Wooly Westeros And, just in time for our theme announcement, this year we are super excited to have Ironwood Wolves bringing an ambassador wolf for photo ops and Q&A! It is a smaller con, but there's something for everyone. Panels, cosplay, gaming tournaments, a mock tourney, a dance, and lots more. For more info on our events visit www.iceandfirecon.com/events/ While this is a convention focused on all things Ice and Fire and that includes the HBO series, we are a books-first con. Here is a highlights album from 2017's con. Please note that while cosplay is a wonderful part of the convention, plenty of attendees don't do it, or do it very casually. Here is an article about this year(2017)'s Con: "Ice and Fire Con 5.0: What is Dead May Never Die” Tickets are $75 for the full weekend and do not include food or lodging. Visit our store page to purchase! You can get $5 off until December 1st with the code "WOLVES" at check-out. Ticket prices do go up to $90 after the New Year, so get 'em fast. --- This will be my 5th year volunteering at this con so please feel free to ask any questions! Jasmine
  2. Brian and I are going as well!
  3. 1 Womens 2XL please:)
  4. Website | Facebook Page | Facebook Group | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram WHEN: April 28 - 30, 2017 WHERE: Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia WHAT: The Convention of Ice & Fire, a convention themed around George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, is the premiere event of its kind in America. We are not-for-profit and totally fan run. WHO: Some of the coolest people you'll ever meet! And new for 2017: Fandom Favorite appearances! So far we have Amin and Ashley from A Podcast of Ice and Fire, Aziz and Ashaya from History of Westeros, and PoorQuentyn and Butterfly from ASOIAF University! WHY: Because who doesn't want to party with nerds for a weekend? Our fans and attendees voted, and we will now have a weekend-long theme: What Is Dead May Never Die: Honoring the Dead of ASoIaF It is a tiny con, but there's something for everyone. Panels, feasts, cosplay, gaming tournaments, a mock tourney, a dance, and lots more. For more info on our events visit www.iceandfirecon.com/events/ While this is a convention focused on all things Ice and Fire and that includes the HBO series, we are a books-first con. Here is a highlights album from 2016's con. Please note that while cosplay is a wonderful part of the convention, plenty of attendees don't do it, or do it very casually. This year we're already planning a "zombie night" thanks to our theme! Here is an article about this year's Con: "I've Had the Time of My Life at Ice & Fire Con 2016” (The title is a reference to Dirty Dancing because our location is where it was filmed! You haven't lived until you've see Bittersteel lifting Ramsay Snow Bolton above his head ballroom dance-style.) Tickets are $60 for the full weekend and do not include food or lodging. Visit our store page to purchase! I started coming to this con in 2014, and it has been such a fun time. Again cosplay is not required ,although love of puns is appreciated:). This location is basically the Eyrie with wifi! The staff is very helpful and the food and drinks are delicious! I'm one of the volunteers, so I'm here to answer any questions.
  5. We actually had a decent Midwest group drive from Chicago and the surrounding areas to the con this year. We are definitely in talks for next year with this location (Mountain Lake Lodge) and there is definitely room for our group to grow here. Once 2017 dates and other information is announced I will post here to keep you up to date.
  6. Sad Maryland isn't in the ACC anymore, but happy they made the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in 13 years! But man, watching them play is tough. They could either lose by 50 points or win by 20, it just depends on Melo and Jake haha
  7. man this year is upset city! my brackets pretty busted.haha also i won tickets to next week's eastern regionals in philly so that will be fun
  8. haha we have a good time with our pun/wordplay costumes. I was Daaria and Where's (Fat) Walda
  9. absolutely! I'm one of the volunteers so I can help you out Just let me know what kind of item(s) you would like to donate (then we can pm from there). We have a silent auction and anything you would like to offer would be much appreciated. if you want us to post links on our site (like for your bid), let me know!
  10. Just wanted to let you guys know of a really awesome con that coming up next month. This will be my third time going and it's an awesome event. Website | Facebook Group | Facebook Page | Tumblr WHEN: April 22 - 24, 2016 WHERE: Mountain Lake Lodge in Pembroke, Virginia WHAT: The Convention of Ice & Fire, a convention themed around George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, is the only convention of its sort in America. It is a tiny con (although with a new location we are going to expand this year!) but there's something for everyone. Panels, feasts, cosplay, gaming tournaments, a mock tourney/archery competition, a dance, and lots more. We have representatives from Podcast of Ice and Fire attend every year. Here is an album from last year (don't worry though--plenty of attendees don't cosplay) Here is an article about the Con: Ice & Fire Con: A.K.A. “Camp for Game of Thrones Fans” This con was born from the want of more ASOIAF themed content at DragonCon and it stemmed from there. We were first based out of New Plymouth, OH, but just this year have moved down to VA to accommodate our growing numbers
  11. Hey Four Eyed Raven!! Awesome name! Haha
  12. Thanks! I'm a little overwhelmed on getting started though
  13. hey everyone! I'm a longtime lurker, but figured it was time to start getting more active in the forums. I'm a 24 yr old former Army Brat currently living the the (best) state of Maryland. I got started in fantasy by reading the Hobbit, then Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter and now ASOIAF. I'm currently obsessed with all things GOT/ASOIAF to the point that I blog about it but I also love everything in popular culture (movies, books, tv). I'm currently an Intern (living the American dream.ha) slowly moving towards my goal of going to graduate school for clinical psychology. That's pretty much me in a nutshell
