What is Adopt-A-Geek?
The Con on the Cob Adopt-A-Geek Fund is a special endowment created to provide registration fees, hotel space, food, travel, and other amenities to con-goers who otherwise couldn’t afford such things. Our goal at Con on the Cob is to make sure everyone has fun. Nobody should be turned away just because he or she can’t afford the registration fees, travel expenses, hotel costs, or other related fiduciary considerations. Every donation, no matter how small or huge is appreciated.
Con on the Cob 2021 happens in Richfield, Ohio October 14-17. Don't miss it!
Here is an Adopt-A-Geek video I made a long, long time ago. It is showing its age but I think you'll dig it.
In the past, your generous Adopt-A-Geek donations have gone to pay registration, travel, and food expenses for victims of Hurricane Katrina, recently unemployed geeks, new parents, and otherwise deserving friends.
If you are in need of the services of the Adopt-A-Geek Fund, or if you have any questions about the fund, please contact Andy using the contact information for this page.
Con on the Cob? What the goose is a Con on the Cob?
That, my friend, is a very good question. To put it simply: Con on the Cob is a coalescence of all Human experience, refined and distilled into an essential cloud of pure smiles. To put it even more simply: it’s a FOUR DAY CELEBRATION OF GAMES, ART, FREAKS, AND FUN!
Con on the Cob is all things to all people. It’s a gaming con, chock full of RPGs, board games, card games, party games, and all sorts of that kind of jazz. It’s also an art fair, with a large selection of talented artists in attendance and an amazing abundance of fantasty, science fiction, horror, and geeky art and art activities. Oh, and it’s The Mother of All Marketplaces, with over 50 vendors showcasing a wide variety of jazz, snazz, and zazz, boosting the geekonomy like old school Robin Hoods (but without the stealing and the giving stuff away for free (ok, not like Robin Hoods. I failed analogy class in Kindergarten). Don’t forget the parties… Did I mention the parties? There are parties. A LOT of them. Also there are other things, like our amazing special Guests, the Children of the Cob, the Comedy Music Extravagasm! and Nerdcore Explosion, tabletop crafting a super sweet Auction, a Games Library, free snacks in the Con Suite, Panels, Workshops, and Demos, a whole track of Cosplay and Fandom related activities, and a massive horde of potential friends and peeps who dig the same things you dig!
