If you are planning
on throwing a room party, there are just a few simple steps to registering
and you will be on your way. Call the Sheraton at (847) 394-2000 and make
a reservation for Capricon. You do not need to mention you want the party
floor or even the room. Then send me a e-mail partiescapriconorg
with your confirmation number, contact info, and a brief description of
your party and room needs. I will then place your reservation onto the
party floor and decide on your room type if you requested a parlor, and
then send you a confirmation letter which will even include your room
number so you can pre-make your flyers!!

to register early as we have a limited number of parlors available, but
