Nerf Battle (Saturday starts 3:30am in Panel Room 3)
You want guns? We got guns. You want swords? We got swords. You want a war? WE GOT A WAR. Rekless Krew and Hyped Apparel will be teaming up with Cosplay Foam Fighting to bring you the first ever, all-out Nerf/Foam Fighting war ever held at an anime convention. You will get to choose your class, and that will determine your weapons and defense. So drink your energy drinks, eat that sugar, cause things are about to get HYPED. Welcome to "The War for Ramencon"!
A CMV is a cosplay music video, but for this contest it's a convention music video! Get out your cameras and record some dancing. Get creative! You can try redoing an actual music video with congoers or make something totally original! You have until February 1st, 2016 to edit and post a CMV from Ramencon 2015. Post your video on YouTube, then post the link on our Facebook page or email it to us. We will pick the most memorable video as the winner, and the prize will be a free badge to Ramencon 2016. We can't wait to see all your awesome videos! (ask permission to video record someone)
Adventure though the convention and find Pokemon hidden everywhere! But don't disturb the Pokemon; only take a photo. You can use your cell phone or a digital camera, and we will have someone you can bring your photos to at the Reg table. There are 85 Pokemon hiding in the hotel. The person with the most Pokemon caught on camera will be the winner, and will receive a badge to Ramencon 2016!
Splash Battle (Saturday starts 2:00pm Outside Field)
If weather permits, we will have a water balloon/water gun battle. We will have 2000 water balloons and 48 water guns to distribute between the teams. We want a couple hundred people to jump in on this. This can be epic. Please dress to get wet, and do not throw water balloons at vehicles. Afterwards, we will give away a Ramencon t-shirt to the person who cleans up the most balloon pieces.
Cosplay give away!
Hello! We want to celebrate you for being different! We are doing an awesome giveaway with a bunch of Ramencon merch, along with some manga and DVDs. How is this going to work, you ask? We will do a drawing at Closing Ceremony - you must be present to win. You can come to the Reg table every day to get entered into the giveaway - one entry for each day you are in cosplay, fur, kimono, kigurumi, armor, etc. (You will not be entered if you are in everyday clothes - pants, jeans, leggings, t-shirts, hoodies, etc.) You can also enter the giveaway by donating to the convention. Donate $2 for 1 entry. Donate $5 for 3 entries.
Hotel Cutoff date
I was just informed that the hotel cutoff date for the Ramencon rate is September 3rd, so grab your room now! Grab your rooms while they are still open. Also, for those who have already reserved your rooms, double check to make sure the reservation is still good to go. We really don't want anyone to have a bad weekend because computers have problems. Thank you for being awesome and cannot wait to see everyone!
cutoff date for Pre-Reg will be September 4th. Unless we get everything done then we can push it back more.

If you pre-reg for Ramencon 2015, you will be entered in for a chance to win three nights (check-in Thursday, check-out Sunday) at the Radisson for Ramencon 2015. If we get 200 pre-reg by the end of March, we will continue the contest for three more months and a second person will be drawn to win a three-night stay. If we get 400 pre-reg at that point, we will do a third drawing in September.
