Who needs a badge?

Anyone seven years old or older must have a badge to attend SoDak. Children six and under may attend with an adult who has a badge.

Do I still need a badge if I don't plan to attend any events at SoDak Con?

Yes. SoDak Con is completely volunteer based and every badge pays for the convention. Without paying attendees there is no convention.

Is my Badge sent to me in the mail?

Unfortunately no, the cost alone of mailing all of the preregistration badges would require an increase in badge prices, and we want to keep SoDak Con as affordable as possible for all of out attendees. All badges are to be picked up at the convention at the Registration Desk.

What do I need to pick up my pre-registration badge?

In order to pick up your preregistration badge, we require a photo ID (Driver's license, school ID, credit card with your picture on it, passport, etc). It's also a good idea to bring a copy of the confirmation e-mail you received when you registered. This guarantees a hassle-free entrance to the convention.

Can I pick up the preregistration badge for my friend, family member, or child?

Sure, if you have their photo ID, their confirmation e-mail, or a signed letter from them explicitly authorizing you to pick up their badge along with photo ID for yourself.

Can I buy an on-site registration for my friend?

Yes, as with any on-site registration make sure your friend's name is on their badge in case it gets lost.

Okay, I've got my badge, now what?

We know it's tempting to run off as fast as you can to see all that SoDak Con has to offer but first take a deep breath and do the following before you leave registration:

  • Look at your badge. Is your name on it? No? There are pens right there on the registration table. Please Fix it. Write your real name on it. That way, if you lose it and someone turns it in, you can show ID and get it back.
  • Attach your badge securely and visibly to your person. You will be stopped to show your badge if it's not visible.
  • Grab a program guide and a schedule, or download our mobile app.
  • Enjoy SoDak Con!
I lost my badge at the Con! Help!

Did you write your name on it? You should have. We're happy to check our pile of lost badges for yours and if we find it we're happy to return it to you. If it hasn't been turned in, we'll replace your lost badge one time for a $5 fee. If you find your badge, or you come back later and it's been turned in, we'll refund the lost badge fee. We'll again take this opportunity to suggest putting your badge on a lanyard as insurance against it falling off.

I pre-registered but now can't make it to SoDak Con. Can I get a refund?

Sorry, no. Please see our Refund Policy for more details.

I preregistered but now can't make it to SoDak Con. Can I transfer my badge to someone else?

Absolutely. If you know you won't make it to SoDak Con and want to transfer your badge, we'll miss you, but we applaud your generosity, just email us at least four weeks before the convention with your information and the information of the person who's taking your place. If you don't find out in time to let us know before SoDak Con, just send your friend with your photo ID and a signed letter letting us know you want them to have your badge and we'll let them pick it up.

My friend or family member preregistered but couldn't make it to SoDak Con and I'd like to get their badge for them. Can I?

Sure, just get a letter and a copy of their ID from them authorizing you to pick up their badge as described above.

When and how can I preregister for next year?

You can register for the next year's SoDak Con on site, through the mail in or online. Next year's registration will not start until afternoon of Sunday of this year's convention.

Can I get a nickname, character name, or pseudonym on my pre-registration badge?

No. We used to allow this but it caused an awful lot of hassles. From now on the name on your badge must match your photo ID. Shortened forms of your legal name (Dave instead of David, Angie instead of Angela, etc.) are acceptable, but if you put "SuperCatGirl" as your name in our online registration form, we simply won't know who to give the badge to. Unless of course your driver's license says SuperCatGirl as well.

Refund Policy

SoDak Con is completely volunteer based and every badge pays for the convention. We are also an annual event with specific, widely-publicized dates, we do not offer refunds for any reason save cancellation of the event on our part (not yours). We reserve the right to cancel events based on our discretion. A Change in dates of the events does not qualify as canceling an event. Anyone under 18 must have their parent do the transfer of passes. Passes purchased in advance can be transferred to other parties or to a future SoDak Con, but only if the purchasing party notifies SoDak Con at least four (4) weeks prior to the event.
