Who doesn't like a Food Truck?
The Hop Food Truck will be stopping by Friday afternoon about 4:30 to feed all you hungry gamers. They are providing special menu prices for Fragapalooza participants, so please show your Frag ID when placing your order. They will be staying for a couple of hours, or as long as they are still serving customers, so they should be able to serve everybody!
Here is the menu that they will be offering.
Local Kosmos does it again!
Kosmos is sponsoring Fragapalooza 2015 with some gift cards for prizing, 5% off all non-alcoholic orders (just mention/provide your Fragapalooza 2015 ID Tag), and driver service till mid-night during the event. Check them out on Facebook!
Here are their menus:
We hope so!

There are two located in the building and depending on whether you are closer to the Fragapalooza FP banner in the North, or the Capital Airsoft banner in the South of the soccer pitch, choose the appropriate WiFi SSID to connect to:
- Shaw Free - North
- Shaw Free - South
Good news everyone! It looks like Fragapalooza 2015 will start on time! Doors to open at 9:00am this morning! See you here! Remember to have your photo ID and your signed waiver to ensure things go as fast and smooth as possible!
We are pleased to announce a last minute addition to our sponsors, so everyone please welcome The Variant Edition to Fragapalooza 2015. The Variant Edition will be on site this Saturday with a pair of local DCI judges who will provide an introduction to playing Magic: The Gathering to all interested participants.
These are good people and a great local business, so please come by and say hi to them on Saturday and go check out their store after Frag. Or before, that works too!
But I love my ID # I've had for years!
With the old registration system being 18 years in the making and the content there becoming very dated we decided not to migrate the Fragapalooza logins and IDs from the old system to ensure our data in the new system is most up-to-date and accurate. We apologize if you really liked your number. As such you may have noticed your Fragapalooza ID # is not the same on the website (subject to change at this time - we are working on the final numbers as we post this article), and will be solidified as your new number at the event.
What does this mean? Well, for those returning to the event with prior security tagged equipment, those tags are no longer valid. We ask that you remove those tags prior to entry to the event as we will be overwriting them with new ones. We can assist you with this at the Registration table, but doing this ahead of time will speed up your entry process.
Hopefully this makes sense and we'll see you in a few days with new stickers!
No way that's you! Really?
In order to keep our event secure and safe, for you and your equipment, we use our Fragapalooza ID tags + your Government Issued Photo ID to ensure you are you and that your equipment is yours as well. If you don't have a Government Issued Photo ID, try to bring some form of Photo Identification. If that doesn't work as well, we do have ways to issue you a temporary photo ID but this will slow down your entry process. So easiest, best and safe bet if you you have your own with you!
It will be as it should be, and will be in stone!
SO LITTLE DAYS LEFT!!!! We're excited!!!
In preparation during setup day of the venue we will be locking seating as is August 5, 2015. We do this so we can setup the venue with your seat reserved in your name making it that much easier to find yourself and the seat(s) you reserved. So if you have a last minute change or a last minute transfer to complete so that friend/family member can get their seat in their name and reserved, make sure to complete it before Tuesday, August 5, 2015.
Get Prepped, Get Pumped, Get In!
We wanted to remind everyone to have some things ready for Fragapalooza to make your entry to the event go all that more smoothly! This is your Fragapalooza 2015 Preparation Guide:
Have your equipment all packed up and ready to go. Monitor/TV, Keyboard/Mouse/Controller(s), PC/Laptop/Console, Comfy Chair (optional - event has plastic event chairs if you don't have your own), Headphones, Updates completed, Software/Games installed, etc... Check out our FAQ and About page for more details!
If you are coming to the event but want to pay at the door, or you are getting a seat transferred to you from a friend/family member, please at least have your www.fragapalooza.com login registration completed prior to the event to help facilitate your entry all the more FASTER! Our event system requires this step to be completed first and foremost and you will save some time if you have done this already! If you haven't, please do so here!
Waivers and Paper Registration
These will be onsite at the check in August 6, 2015, but we ask that again you have them completed ahead of time to facilitate faster entry. These forms can be downloaded and printed from here, and for legal reasons are required to gain entry. So if you can print them out, get them filled and signed and have them ready for the event, that would be AWESOME!

Anyone whom has purchased a "Clan 4 Pack/Multiple Seats" and wishes to transfer those to another participant of Fragapalooza 2015, please try to complete that process prior to yours and definitely the intended recipient's arrival at the event. All you need to do is the following:
