Let's Go Camping!
Do you want to connect with the Norwescon community more than once a year? Do you like nature? Join us for a camping trip! Norwescon has reserved the group site at Manchester State Park (http://parks.state.wa.us/542/Manchester) for August 25 - 27, 2017. Bring your tent and sleeping bags, your summer reading, your campfire cuisine, your libations, and spend a couple of days chilling out in the woods with us!
If you're interested, please contact SunnyJim Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up - she can give you more detailed information. This event is open to all members of the Norwescon community.
*Note: there are a limited number of RV sites available, too!
And Don't Forget the Picnic!
The Norwescon Volunteer Appreciation Picnic will be held on July 15th at Steel Lake Park in Federal Way from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Not a volunteer yet? Come anyway and talk to someone about getting involved! Bring a friend! Or two! More information, including the address and directions, can be found on the website here.
Do You Have a Panel Suggestion?
The July newsletter will have information and links on how to become a panelist at Norwescon 41, so be sure to open it when it arrives in your inbox! In the meantime, do you have ideas for panels? It's not too early for good ideas, so fill out the form found on the Programming page of the website. Here is a handy link for you:
In the Meantime, Have You Registered?
Memberships are still available at the low price of $55 for a full four-day membership! The price will go up a few times before the convention begins, so the early bird gets the discount! Get yours now!
Hotel reservations are also open! The hotel fills up well before the convention, so be sure to grab your room well ahead of time. Remember the Hilton requires a one-night deposit to be paid at the time of reservation. (This is fully refundable until January 13, 2018.) Book here to get our discounted rate!
Staff Members Wanted!
Although the Executive Team is still in the process of being selected, it's not too early to put your name in the hat for a position once they are chosen. Join the Convention Committee and become a staff member! You don't even have to attend all the monthly meetings - many positions can be managed from a distance, or are needed at-con only. A helping hand is always welcome, so come and join us! If you're interested in a certain position or department, send an email to Chair@Norwescon.org and let us know what you want to do!
