|RushCon 8 will be held July 8-10, 2008. This is our first midweek convention, due to the Toronto RUSH show being on a Wednesday. The convention will be held at the Days Hotel & Conference Center - Toronto Downtown at 30 Carlton Street, which has been our official convention hotel and location for several years.
Since this is a midweek convention, it's a great opportunity to meet everyone and feel the family-like experience of RushCon.
We are planning to have the following events:
Tuesday night: "In the Mood" Mixer - a great place to meet fellow fans, enjoy some hors d'oeuvres, and listen to RUSH!
Wednesday day: RUSH-based Games and Charity Auction - fun game show style games give you a chance to win cool RUSH prizes, and a RUSH memorabilia auction (including autographed items!) benefiting the Daily Bread Food Bank of Toronto. To date, we have raised $40,000 CND for charity!
Wednesday evening/night: Toronto Harbour boat cruise to the RUSH show!
Thursday day: RUSH fans invade the city - we'll have a couple of optional events, exploring Toronto.
FULL DETAILS WILL BE LISTED IN THE APPROPRIATE AREA OF THE RUSHCON WEBSITE ONCE THEY ARE FINALIZED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR THE LATEST DETAILS!
See you soon-
