We've added The Conventionist app to our online schedules this year. Attendees with an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or android device should 1) download 'The Conventionist' from the Apple App Store or the Android Marketplace 2) visit (http://conventionist.com/getit) from their phone's browser. There is also a QR image in the pocket program that may be scanned in lieu of using your phone's browser.
Currently this application does not support Blackberry, Windows 7, or HTML 5. We have PDF versions of the schedule available from our event schedule page.
Even though the schedules are online please don't forget to look at your Program Book. The electronic versions and pocket program hold short descriptions this year. The full event descriptions are in the Program Book.
The official convention t-shirt is available for sale in the lobby from Offworld Designs. It features artwork by our Artist Guest of Honor, Kinuko Y. Craft. The piece, The Bards of the Bone Plane, was created for the book of the same name by our Writer Guest of Honor, Patricia A. McKillip. Also avaliable are hoodies, hats, button down shirts and canvas totes with the Norwescon logo on them. Pick something up today!
DISCOUNTED PARKING OPPORTUNITY
WallyPark has opened a new 1,800 car garage across the street from the Doubletree. They are running a grand opening special rate of $9.95 per day and have made 100 coupons available for Norwescon members which are good for 15% off at check out. That makes it $8.45/day! Just show your parking stub at the convention information desk while supplies last to pick up the coupon. You will need to show your Norwescon badge to use the coupone when you retrieve your car.
GAMING SCHEDULE IN FLUX
We continue to see developments in the Scheduled Gaming event plan. If you don't see something that you want to play listed on the Website today it may be there tomorrow. Stop by schduled gaming to sign up for a round or two and be entered into Sunday's prize drawing.
You can help make Norwescon happen, especially when you volunteer time to assist with making sure everything runs smoothly and tasks are completed. This doesn't just happen while the convention is taking place. It starts the day before the convention and continues until the Monday following the convention.
By volunteering you can earn cool prizes, share in some of the behind the scenes fun, and compete for great rewards! And don't forget that by volunteering your time, you also get some great food and privileges at the convention, and during the summer at the Volunteer Picnic too! Take on a task or two to help make Norwescon 34 that much better than it already is.
After you pick up your membership badge at registration why not stop by the Volunteer Lounge (Olympic 2) and take on a task and become eligible for rewards.
