ADULT TRACK PANELIST FULL MONTY
MORE THAN YOU WANT TO KNOW
Mickey Schulz and Ogre Whiteside have fed off each others’ kinks and perversions for over a decade now. They have in the past been heavily involved in fandom, and, after a self-imposed exile, are easing back in. They both work in a Goth/Fetish bar not to be named here, are gamers, write, and have massive, and I mean massive, geek cred.
Eliza Gauger was originally found naked and gibbering in the wilds of Bellingham, Washington. Rescued by a hippie lawyer and her skiffy novelist consort, Gauger now lives in downtown Seattle, where she performs as a mercenary artist for the likes of Legend of the Five Rings, Blue Rose, and the upcoming gas-mask-chic RPG, Unhallowed Metropolis. She is also editing Rick Gauger’s SF novel Charon’s Ark in preparation for its re-release in a complete trilogy, and eating horrific amounts of Hello Panda. Tests show that she is constructed entirely of minerals mined from the distant and comet-rich Kuiper Belt, but ancient legend speaks of a rich, creamy filling.
TAKE MY DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION
ALL ABOUT THE UTENA LOVE
Saturday Night wouldn’t be anything without a good old-fashioned hoedown. This isn’t your grandpappy’s kind of hoedown, except on the alternate universe world of Topeka Prime where it kind of is (but that’s another story) – this is a hoedown in SPACE! W/i/t/h/ /L/A/S/E/R/S/!/ /A/n/d/ /B/L/A/C/ K/J/A/C/K/!/ /A/n/d/ /H/O/O/K/E/R/S/!/ Follow your galactic friend on this fantastic voyage with DJ MC300baud playing his own unique style of con-going fun. You never know what to expect but you always want more.
FOOD DRIVE UPDATE
GREEN ELF NEEDS FOOD BADLY
Please help donate food to Northwest Harvest in the memory of Marion Zimmer Bradley. There will be donation points in the lobby where you can place donations of nonperishable food items. Alternatively, you can either donate money at Registration, or you can come check out the donation items up for auction on Sunday with the art show at 12:00 noon. We will try to have the donation items on display in the art show by Friday evening.
NOT AT ALL LIKE THAT JAPANESE HORROR FLICK

MY POEM IS PAESTED ON YAY
The newsletter put out a call;
“There’s almost no parties at all!”
By simple deduction
We’re blaming CONSTRUCTION
For keeping the party list small.
HELP CLEAN UP
YOU BROKE IT, YOU FIX IT
Calling all late night fen! You’re done partying! You’re done dancing! You’re just wandering around. Wander on down to Grand Ballroom 3 after the dance around two or 3am and help pack up the equipment up. It can be a whole lot of fun. No, really. Many things are funny at this hour.
Also, if you aren’t ready to go home yet on Sunday afternoon, we’ll need more help cleaning up again on Sunday afternoon and evening.
THERE MAY BE A SATURDAY AFTERNOON NEWSLETTER; ANIMATED OWLS ON STANDBY
We’re getting a lot of material, by which, we mean a lot of material, which is very cool. We may, and we stress may, have enough to justify an extra edition of RUN!! on Saturday afternoon. If we do, the deadline will be 2pm. Get material into the boxes by that time.
5-2-1, PARTICULARLY 1
IT’S NOT A B.O. LOTTO
What is the “5-2-1 Con Rule?” It’s very straightforward:
- Five hours of sleep
- Two good meals
- One shower. Please god.
Each and every day. Don’t forget!
“May I pet your tail?”
“She’s been randomly assaulting people with her wings.”
“He didn’t know where his cell phone had gone until he heard the cow start ringing.”
