It's the last weekend of January. Does anyone have more information?

Which Valley Con?
Seems there is more than one con under that name.

I'm not connected with the Hutt Club which puts on this event, other than as a visitor occasionally. I found this link on their Website.

I contacted the ValleyCon folks and invited them to update us here.

Sorry, I don't think my car would make it. Good luck to them, though!

Hi – thanks for the prompt to update – unfortunately I had to sign up and I couldn't post for the 3 day stand down, and then I went on holiday.

ValleyCon 17 has reached capacity and we had to close of registrations two weeks out. The committee are really grateful for the support of the local community and the travellers making the huge effort to join us.
Now we know there is a NZ events part of the TMP forum (and I have signed up) we will be sure to post information for ValleyCon 2018.

Thanks, Tom!

I don't think I've ever heard of a game convention achieving maximum capacity…
