You're Invited to a Party!
The Norwescon Stuffing Party will be held today Sunday, April 9, at the SeaTac DoubleTree Hotel at 1:00 p.m. (If you are bringing materials to put into the bags, please show up at noon.) The room will be on the daily meeting boards at the hotel entrances. Stuffing should be over by 4:00 p.m. at the latest.
Please join us for fun and games as we take pieces of paper, paperback books, buttons, and coupons and marry them together to form the packets that everybody receives at Registration. The more people we have, the faster it will go. Be the first in your neighborhood to see what sort of goodies everyone will receive. Cop a button or two advertising the next big movie. We might even have the latest programming grids on the wall for your perusal.
Working at the Stuffing Party counts towards hours worked at the con. Norwescon volunteers receive perks like early seating at the Masquerade and are entered into drawings for many items donated by Norwescon dealers. The drawings take place early Sunday afternoon of the con.
Please note: People attending the Stuffing Party will have to pay for their own parking. Parking should be $8.
Join Norwescon's League of Superheroes!
Charities has a special ribbon available for a minimum donation of a dollar apiece. All proceeds go directly to Norwescon's sponsored charity, Northwest Harvest.
Although we have several people with these super special ribbons, our Ribbon Diva, Willow, has a table in Artists in Action or can be found wandering the halls. Ribbons will also be available in the Office. Your donations make a BIG difference. Thank you everyone!!
Just a quick reminder, if you plan on donating items for the Charity Auction, please contact the Charities Super Friends at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keith & Alan's Movie News & Previews Are Seeing Double!
Back for their 11th year, Alan Halfhill and partner Keith Johnson are delighted to bring their unique brand of Movie Previews & News to Norwescon. They commit countless hours of behind-the-scenes toil to bring you the latest movie news, rumors, and trailers out of Hollywood and beyond.
But they're so much more than that. They highlight the latest trends, innovations, challenges, and also the wider entertainment culture TV shows, home video, theme parks - the whole gamut! Now how much would you pay?
And this year you get TWO opportunities to load up your media memory banks. The first is bright and early Friday from 10 a.m. to noon in Grand 3. Then there's an after-party meetup at 1 p.m. Friday in the Volunteers' Lounge for things they didn't have time for in the main show. And they celebrate the triumphant return of their Sunday show, which our veterans know is more freeform and features the must-be-experienced-to-be-believed, "why? Why? WHY?" Sunday at noon in Evergreen 1-2. Alan and Keith make it easy to get your weekend's dose of full-frontal media mayhem!
The complete convention schedule is now available and up to date on the Guidebook app. View all the fun you have in store, and use "My Schedule" to start planning your con. Use this link to download to your mobile device: http://guidebook.com/g/nwc40/.
While you're packing for Norwescon 40, do you have things that should be added to the archives? There are a couple of things that we are looking for:
Daily Zines: We don't know when we started the Daily Newsletter, but we need any from Norwescon 17 and earlier. We could also use last year's, Norwescon 39.
Program Books: We would like to get a couple more copies of Norwescon 1's cute little program book.
If you have any donations, please bring them to the History Display in Olympic 2. Thanks.
