World Diplomacy Championships 17 Aug 9th-12th, Vancouver BC

WDC 17 and North American Dipcon 40 August 9th-12th, Vancouver, British Columbia
Where does the time go? We are now three months out from the biggest Diplomacy event of the year.
Things are coming together nicely – Mr. Shields and I went to the convention site this past weekend, making sure everything is in order, and that we'll have some smooth sailing come August. As you should all know, we're featuring six full rounds of Diplomacy over 4 days. There's a lot to compete for – the World Title, the Dipcon Title, best team, best country – and it's a big year. This will be the 40th Dipcon, a tradition started back in 1967.
We have a lot of people signed up so far, but I know there's a lot of you out there planning to attend that are still getting your ducks in a row – please let me know if you will be attending. We want to be able to pick you up! If you already have confirmed with me, please take a moment and reserve you room. There is a variety of ways you can do this, you can call (1.888.822.1030), email, or do it on the web from this page. The actual link doesn't email so well.
We're mentioning this because there is only so many rooms available, and the university *will* start giving away our room block that are not reserved three weeks before the event. So please make sure to take 5 minutes and reserve. They do not charge you anything, and you can cancel your reservation without penalty up to 48 hours before the date. Being a college campus there are not a lot of lodging options nearby, and none of them are as cheap as the dorms.
There's a lot of information at if you'd like to do some research.
We hope you can all make it – it's going to be a great event. Please feel free to email us with questions, we're here to help.
Thanks again, and see you in August!
