YorKON is back for 2019! The Yorke Peninsula Council join forces with Retrospekt and AVCon to present YorKON 2019 on April 27 – 28. The event will be held in the town of Minlaton on the beautiful York Peninsula, approximately two hours from Adelaide (directions here via Google Maps). The event runs from 11am – 3pm on both days and from 5pm – 9pm on Saturday evening for those aged 15+.Here’s the lowdown, directly from the Yorke Peninsula Council:
After the success of last year’s inaugural event, Yorke Peninsula Council has again partnered with Team AvCon and the Copper Coast Table Top Gamers, as well as welcoming new partner Retrospekt, in hosting the YorKon Gaming Convention. Not only will this year’s event have more games, activities and a very exiting special guest appearance that will be out of this world, the event will also be run over two days, 27th and 28th April 2019, at the Minlaton Town Hall. The event will run from 11am until 3pm each day with an ages 15+ session to be held on the Saturday evening from 5pm until 9pm.
This event provides the local community, especially our young people and their families, with the unique opportunity to engage in a fun and free social gaming event, involving tournaments, free play and retro gaming, table top games and more during the April School holidays.
Retrospekt will be running our ever-popular games museum. Expect a range of retro consoles and handhelds, with a selection of games that range from the familiar to more uncommon titles. And we can’t forget our slightly more ‘grown-up’ selection for the 15+ session on Saturday night… ;)
