Con Information


2020 Convention: Toronto, Ontario

Because of Covid-19, Contario has been postponed. When more information is available, it will be posted here.

After 29 years, the National Puzzlers' League convention is returning to Toronto!

Contario will take place from July 9-12, 2020, at the Chelsea Hotel in downtown Toronto. Rooms are $209/night CAD + sales and accomodation taxes of 17%. As of January 2020, that's about $157/night USD. Rooms are available with 1 queen bed or 2 double beds. Booking information is below.

There's a parking garage for $36/day CAD ($27/day USD). The Chelsea is super close to the subway line — the city, escape rooms and all, will be at your fingertips.

REMINDER: If you are coming from outside Canada, make sure your passport is up to date! NOTE: The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative allows most US citizens traveling exclusively by land to and from Canada to use an Enhanced Driver's License instead of a passport. These licenses are currently only issued by Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, and Washington. If you are unsure if this applies to you, check the State Department web site.

Convention Drop-in Policy
Locals can "drop-in" for a single session Thursday or Friday night without paying and we encourage local puzzlers considering membership to do so. Thursday and Friday night sessions start at 8PM. If you like what you see at the session, it may be possible for a local person to join the League and pay the con fee during con, in order to attend the rest of con. If you are interested, contact the con host, Hale.

Code of Conduct
The organizers of this convention are committed to preserving a welcoming and respectful environment for anyone who wishes to participate. We do not tolerate harassment of convention-goers or League members in any form. If you feel that any individual is speaking or acting inappropriately, either toward you or to someone else, please contact a member of the Code of Conduct Committee to mediate or intercede, as necessary.
