History of OrcaCon :
The idea of OrcaCon was created during a gaming session at Dragonflight 2013 by a group of friends who were reminiscing about attending Dreamcon, many years ago. They all wished for another convention in Snohomish County. This group of friends are experienced in working conventions, volunteering at conventions, and running conventions. We decided to spend more time discussing the project, and in July 2014, we decided to make this a reality. As the group started talking to their friends and peers, they quickly had enough staff volunteers to get the convention off the ground.
