Located on the expansive flatlands that are Central Illinois. FlatCon has been Bloomington-Normal’s premiere annual gaming convention since 2000. Aerodrome 1.1 Running in 2018 from Friday, October 12th through Sunday the 14th, FlatCon is presented by Gamers For Life which supports the American Cancer Society through the Gamers For Life Relay for Life team. FlatCon’s attendees are “Scoring a Crit on Cancer” and doing some serious gaming! Our 2016 con raised $3,000 for Relay for Life!
