Masquerade

We're excited by the prospect of some great costumes for this years Masquerade, with a theme of Elegance and Entropy. Have you started planning your entry? We have a great slate of Judges this year, and we know you will knock their socks off with your craftsmanship and performance quality.

We are also looking for a stellar half time performance. If you have ideas please let us know!

Hotels Update

While the DoubleTree's rooms are sold out, we have listed a number of alternate hotels close to the convention, some with special rates for Norwescon attendees! Check the hotel page for the full list.

Hotel hours and menus for the DoubleTree's restaurant and room service options are also available on the website.

Robotics Fair

Norwescon will be hosting a robotics fair on Sunday (10-Noon). Geared towards children and adults, the event will have a walled maze, robot arena, and line tracing path. We'll also have a limited number of entry-level robotics kits for purchase ($35). These special edition Norwescon robots include everything you need to get started.

John Seghers, the nwcMUSIC tech lead, will be holding a special training session at the April Norwescon Concom Meeting. You'll learn about the secret ninja methods of our most excellent sound crew. Everyone interested should attend! Meeting and training are on April 5th, at the Sea-Tac Doubletree; the meeting starts at 1pm, with the training session starting shortly afterwards. music@norwescon.org

Youth Track

If you have been leaving the kids home while you jaunt off to attend Norwescon every year, you might want to rethink that for 2014. Our expanded Youth Track has some excellent offerings this year to educate and entertain kids of all ages.

Norwescon has always been family-friendly, so bring your youngsters and introduce them to fandom life at Norwescon 37!

Fannish Fetish Fashion Show

The FFFS has always been an event not to be missed and this year we will be mixing things up Fetish night style. Morgue Anne will be your host while we show off two of Seattle's well-established local designers, Fraukhez Clothing and Delightfully Deviant. The FFFS will also be presenting many fetish performances that follow our medical fetish theme. We welcome you to be a part of the show and dress to impress while dancing the night away while our DJ makes you move. The fun will begin at 9 PM on Friday in the Grand Ballrooms 2 and 3.
