We often hear of Brisbane complaining about Sydney and Melbourne getting all the cool things, then Perth complains about Brisbane, Adelaide complains about Perth, and Hobart sits in the middle rolling its eyes. But what about the regions that aren't even near any capital cities?
The South Coast of NSW will be getting its very own geek convention this October when NowCon arrives in the town of Nowra, which is approximately two hours south of Sydney. The convention aims to be the place for lovers of all things geeky to meet up, especially those in regional areas who often can't make it to the conventions in big cities. The event touts itself as having something for anyone who loves games, comics, books, and cosplay.
Local businesses will also be getting involved with comic and hobby shops setting up stalls, a cosplay competition, a Guitar Hero competition, a World of Warcraft Trading Card Game comp, and art competitions.
What? NowCon Where? The Wesley Centre, cnr Berry and Junction St, Nowra When? 1st October, 9am-5pm How much? Entry is free but some competitions like the Guitar Hero comp have a $2 entry fee Internets? Yes, right here!
