Thank You 2013 Fans of Amazing Awesomeness!
We, (The Ohayocon Staff) would like to thank all of the fans who made it to Columbus Ohio for our 13th year. We expected a few bumps, it is our 13th anniversary after all. There were a few things we need to work out, work on or just rework completely. We appreciate all of your feedback and take all of your comments into consideration when looking at the issues. Again, we thank you for attending and hope that we get to see you again! If you feel you can add something we ask that you begin by being an Ohayocon @Con Volunteer. Be a Volunteer!

Ohayocon 2014 THEME = Magical Girls!!!!!!!
Each year we try to pick a theme that gets us excited. Sometimes it's obsucre and sometimes it's old school anime! Nothing is as timeless as the Magical Girl! Everyone get out your Fuku and start working on your transformation pose!!! While we welcome all cosplayers in all genre's of our fandom - Cosplaying is NOT required.
IF you have any interest TO BE ON STAFF!
If you are serious about being on staff in the future we recommend you apply to be an @con Volunteer. This is what we fondly refer to as our Gopher department. This is a great way to learn the ropes and learn what working a convention is all about.
FOLLOW US (LOVE US!!!>_<)
Ohayocon:All for one and one for all
We all want to have a good time and no one wants to be told to stop what there doing or worse, be ejected from the convention entirely. This means that we all have to make sure that the rules of the City of Columbus and all areas we inhabit during the convention are met. If you see someone not following the rules we all suffer(eventually). If your idea of fun is tagging and tearing up hotel rooms...this is just not the convention for you. (Just FYI..this was actually included for a reason..and that's sad! We have a reputation for being awesome and it's amazing what can happen when a few people aren't as awesome as they could be. )
If you see anyone not following the rules or anything that shows that we as a community are not following the rules please contact any Ohayocon Staffer immediately! Thank you so much for being awesome!
Ohayocon does Rule...but we have rules too.
Every attendee and staffer needs to abide by these gueidlines set to help keep everyone safe and make Ohayocon a fun event for everyone...and you can find them here!
