Payments Processing
[sygnus] [11:08 pm - 24 Aug 2016]
Hi all,

Just wanted to share that I'm currently very busy with an upcoming move into a new home! As such, payment processing will be slightly delayed compared to our usual quick turnarounds.

Please be patient after paying - rest assured the payments e-mail works, and we are receiving payments. Will always strive for no more than 7-day turnaround on processing payments and sending confirmation.

After reviewing feedback and reticulating splines, the weekend's schedule is now up on the site. If this generates feelings strong enough to write an e-mail, ship it to me. to the "Games" contact.

Xanamander and I were chatting about some technical items this past weekend, and we started down the path of securing our lantastic.ca website.

Good news, it is done! Now enjoy:
* proof of identification (SSL cert)
* encryption of data sent/received

If your browser claims insecurity, you probably need to upgrade your browser.

Any technical difficulties with our website after this enhancement, please contact us via the technical support contact.

Seating Plan Updated
[Fermulator] [10:46 am - 30 Jul 2016]
We've finished working out the details of expansion. Now the main area (zone1) supports 56 attendees. If demand grows beyond this, we can support it with varying smaller zones which may actually be preferable to people looking for a more intimate seating zone. Head on over to the seating plan to check it out!
