ShamliCon was a Discordian "mini-unconvention" held in Texas on the weekend of June 20 - 22, 2008.

HISTORY

A few Discordians discovered they lived near each other while chatting in the Discordian Cyberspace Masquerade at the end of May 2008, An Anonymous Lifeform and Reverend Loveshade (who shared a mask as Enlarge Your Manhood) learned they lived near Sister Creamy (masked as Good To The Last Drop). The three of them, a mutual friend named Perlie the Pony Girl, and Binky the WonderSkull planned a Discordian get-together in Texas on the weekend of June 20 - 22, 2008. They called it ShamliCon. The name and concept were inspired by KallistiCon, ran by St. Mae, Johnnny Brainwash, and others on that same weekend in California. The plans for ShamliCon, in turn, led to the idea for Day of Discord.

ACTIVITIES

On Friday, the group got together for a zoo trip with members and leaders of Purple Ferret's Nest, which is a local nest or chapter of Shamlicht Kids Club. They also held a ShamliCon-SKC swim party, and brought in summer in a skyclad ceremony led by a Pagan coven. In the evening in their motel room, they played a strip version of 1000 Blank White Cards, and had a Discordian ritual involving a chaostar sent them by St. Mae, which led to sexual activitity.

On Saturday, they were Discordian evangelists as described in Principia Discordia, and put up Discordian posters as part of Postergasm. They also held an Erisening or Discordian naming ceremony and declared each other Born Again Virgins with rituals held in the motel shower. These were as described in Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht. They ended the evening with sexual activity.

On Sunday, they slurped soup from their bowls in an all-you-cat eat restaurant, played Sink, and engaged in sexual activity.
