What is FlatCon?
Located on the expansive flatlands that are Central Illinois. FlatCon has been Bloomington-Normal's premiere annual gaming convention since 2000. Running this year October 24th through the 26h, FlatCon is presented by Gamers For Life and all profits go to support the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life program. FlatCon's attendees are "Scoring a Crit on Cancer" and doing some serious gaming!
FlatCon is three days of games, fun, and taking a whack at an insidious disease. What's not to like about that?

A Note on This Site's Design
Some have asked why this new FlatCon site is done in a purple pallete color scheme. The primary color of the site is RebeccaPurple in honor of Rebecca Meyer who lost her battle with cancer on June 7, 2014 at 6 years and 11 and one half hours old. Her favorite color was purple and in honor of her short life, the Web Design Standards community decided to name a new color in her honor, RebeccaPurple. As FlatCon and Gamers for Life are dedicated to raising money to fight cancer, it was a no-brainer to adopt RebeccaPurple as the color scheme of our new site and to honor Rebecca Meyer.
