NWC36 SPECIAL EVENTS
Thank you to all our members who attended the Special Events at Norwescon 36, from the dances to the games, to the Masquerade!
The Masquerade had 19 fabulous entries this year. Our special thanks goes out to all of our participants and staff.
If you enjoyed the photo opportunity at half time or have suggestions for next year, please let us know! There is now a Facebook page for interested parties to follow the NWC Masquerade throughout the year, and to maintain contact and offer encouragement. This is an "unofficial" Norwescon page, as it will be maintained by persons interested in the Masquerade but not necessarily Norwescon staff members. Please follow it here: Facebook Masquerade
The Fannish Fetish Fashion Show proved to be amazing this year, and provided a huge dose of "fashion" along with the other Fs in the name. We give special kudos to our wonderful Director, Modular Diva, for going over and above the call of duty to coordinate this event. His organizational skills are brilliant and his ability to keep his many duties in order were much appreciated. The entire staff and all of the associated volunteers did a great job making this event memorable.
Dance the night away
We had many dances this year - three in Grand 3, two in Maxi's Bar, and one in the Evergreens. Our DJs all did a great job spinning a multitude of tunes, from classic to modern to fannish, and all of the dances were well-attended with great reviews. We hope to make some changes to the Under 21 dance based on feedback received, so look for that to become even better in the future!
