Lifetime Memberships

It's time for us to have The Talk.  We've been doing a lot of thinking about the future lately, about where all of this is going, and....Well, we've decided we want to grow old with you.  No more "keeping it casual" and no more "maybe see you next year" goodbyes.  We're ready for a commitment.  This is where we belong, and we're here to stay.  And we think you may feel the same way, so we're just gonna say it....

Will you be our Justice? smileyThumb

A lifetime membership to Play On Con earns you an appointment to its Supreme Court.

That's right!  Not only does owning a lifetime membership entitle you to a free full weekend pass at every Play On Con we have forevermore, but it also gets you some pretty cool powers to use during the con.  Because seriously, what's the point of moving into a long-term relationship like this if you can't leverage it to indulge further in childish games?!  But before we get into that, let's clarify one thing upfront.

We guarantee to continue hosting POC for at least 10 years.

That 10 years starts after you buy your lifetime membership, and we'll give you a refund if we don't fulfill that goal. We're here to stay, and we intend to spend far more than 10 additional years doing this.  But if for any reason we stop hosting the con before you've had a chance to come for at least 10 years, we'll refund you the full amount you paid, minus the lowest pre-reg price offered for each year we did provide.

Now back to the good part!
As a Supreme Court Justice, your sagelike wisdom as a "POCster For Life" will be called upon, and you'll have some super-serious duties to consider!  Of course the position will also entail certain privileges in deference to your most noble civil service....

Though specifics can vary from year to year, here are a few examples from prior years.

Lifetime Membership Features Supreme Court Rights and Responsibilities (Examples):

Never even glance at a registration line again.  Before the con we'll email you a phone number.  When you arrive on property, simply call to let us know where you are, and we'll hand-deliver your badge and registration packet to you.  After all, you're likely to be awfully busy unpacking your robes!

Monopoly3b Influence the POC Presidential Elections.  The POC Supreme Court gets to weigh in on presidential elections.  For each candidate involved, the Court will have the power to either add or subtract a fixed number of POC Marks from that candidate's tally.  With front-row seats to the election, a public thumbs up or thumbs down will help shape the next year's show!
Help judge various other POC contests!  It could be the costume contest, it could be the Rock Band championship, or it could be something else!  If we need a judge for something, we'll keep our qualified Justices on speed-dial.  Your years of experience with precedent will help us to interpret and apply the true spirit and meaning of POC!  What better way to earn the love and respect of the people?!

Please note that we only authorize a few lifetime memberships for sale each year, depending on how much we've grown.  When we do, they are made available in the POC Shop.
