The Minicon 46 Program Book. This PDF is not exactly the same as the printed book and we weren't organized enough to keep the exact file that the book was printed from. However, it is very close. The only difference I found from flipping through is that the Diversicon ad in the PDF doesn't take up the whole page, but in the printed book it does.
And here's the Pocket Program. It too differs slightly from the printed copy. The printed copy has no grid lines on the schedules and on the maps says "Registration" where this copy says "Registration & Volunteers".

As usual, we're at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel. Our rate for reservations made by March 31 is $89 for both regular rooms and poolside cabanas. Afterward, it is $94 for regular rooms and $99 for cabanas.
For regular rooms, you can book online by using this special link or by calling the Sheraton at 952-835-7800 and mentioning Minicon.
To get a cabana (poolside), e-mail our parties head: <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Some of these are reserved for room parties, but others will be available for the general con-goer.
Don't forget to get a hotel room! Filling hotel rooms is how we pay for our function space, so we would very much appreciate it if you stayed in the Sheraton.

We're still working on seeing if it can happen, but there is the possibility that there will be two kegs of home brewed beers at the convention.
