Post Capricon Survey


Greetings from the future (Or is it the past? (Traveling across the 4th
dimension is confusing)):

By now hopefully you all have had a chance to rest and recuperate after
Capricon. If you’re still making use of the time machine, please
remember to put it back where and when you found it so no one will
notice. We’d like to do something a little different this year, we’d
like to ask your help in making Capricon as enjoyable as possible in the
future. In order to do that we’ve put together a short survey for you to
fill out, to tell us what worked at Capricon this year, what you’d like
to see more of, and some general information about you to help us
understand our membership better. We received some feedback immediately
after Closing Ceremonies, but for those who couldn’t attend, or have
something else to share, this is your chance. If you’d like to
participate, you can do so by taking a short survey.

You can find the survey here.

The information collected will only be
shared with the Capricon Convention Committee and the Phandemonium Board
of Directors, and the survey is anonymous, unless you decide to provide
us with contact information.

If you have any questions or concerns about this survey, or anything
else to do with Capricon for that matter, please feel free to contact me
directly at

Thank You,

–Peter Heltzer
Phandemonium Supreme Minister of Fun

Wanted: Someone to go back in time with Capricious. This is not a joke.
Would you like to lend a hand in making Capricon happen? Are you interested in finding out what happens behind the scenes at a con?

The first step in doing either is simple, volunteer to be a gopher. There are many different jobs that need to be done from the Wednesday before Capricon starts all the way through to Sunday evening after closing ceremonies. Helping out can be quick and easy. If you have an hour, we would love to have you swing by the coat check by the dealer’s room and give us a hand.
