There'll be spinning roulette wheels, Blackjack and gambling galore in the Fan Funds Casino. It'll all be just for fun but there will be plenty of opportunities for you to contribute to the various fan funds who raise money to send fans on cultural exchange trips to far flung corners of the world. The croupiers are nearly all fan fund winners and this gathering is almost certainly the largest collection of fan fund winners ever gathered in one place. Come join in our own Vegas style fun and be there at this historic occasion.
It'll be 22:00 to 0200 on Saturday night at Loncon 3 in the Fanac tent.
Doug Spencer has designed Fan Fund money known as FFundons for single notes and FFunda for more. You'll buy some FFunda at the entrance and then play on the tables. We'll have blackjack, roulette and poker dice. However, the gambling is just for fun.
