Nothing can be more dangerous for your uneventful event than offering food to the participants. Most of the participants are your event will be starving after just a few hours! And trust me: you DO NOT want to see a horde of 200+ hungry participants armed with forks and knives! At FSCONS, we're trying to reduce the risk of serious injury by asking the participants to pay a nominal fee for the food. You can decide on your own if you take us up on the offer of food, or if you hit the local pizzeria.
