New Room Deposit Policy!
A change is coming in the way we reserve rooms for Norwescon. It is a significant change for our members but we believe it will help us make more convention rooms available for our members at the cheaper convention rate.
Starting with Norwescon 36, we have asked the DoubleTree to collect a one-night room deposit when the room is first reserved. This deposit will remain fully refundable until 90 days before the convention, which for next year would be Friday, December 28, 2012. By agreement with the hotel, all rooms cancelled by this date will be returned to the room block and made available for reservation by other Norwescon members.

Norwescon Art Show Awards
Norwescon's Art Show was a hotbed of activity with a small bidding war happening right before close. The sold stamps almost dried out. Our Judges worked hard to decide who should be honored this year. The art quality was some of the best that we have had. But, after much hair pulling, wrestling in the aisles and clipboard swings the honorees are:
Guest of Honor Award: Julie Baroh, for Peri
Best in Show: Kyle Abermethy, for 1 Timothy 2:8-15
First Place: Julie Baroh, for Peri
Second Place: Michael Duquette, for Time Skipper
Third Place: Rob Carlos, for Armageddon Dragon
Best Color: Jeff Sturgeon, for Martian Archway
Best Black & White: Katherine Leeds, for Winters Gift
Best Mixed Media: Aimee Stewart, for Sister Moon
Best 3-D: MacLeod Dragons, for Fishing
Best Jewelry: Gempunk Jewelry, for Time Bandit
Best Textile's: Elizabeth Fellows, for Emerald Dream
We are pleased to announce that Norwescon's scholarship goes to the Northwest College of Art and Design student, Leanne Dunn for Vulture Girl. A big thanks to our judges Don Lackey, Caroline Westra, and Mac Oros for their hard work and interesting wrestling moves.
The People's Choice Awards
Many thanks to Norwescon's Art Show members who voted for their favorite artists in many different categories. The judges were forced to make tie breaking decisions in two categories, Fantasy and Horror.
Best in Show: Michael Duquette, for Time Skipper
Best in Humor: Sarah Clemens, for Boneheads
Best Fantasy: Heather Hudson, for Remembering Spring (2nd Aimee Stewart, for Gypsy Firefly)
Best Horror: Amber Clark, for A Moment of Hope (2nd Matthew Hinshaw, for 'Traction' and 'Base of Change")

Best Jewelry: Tiger Waddell, for Captured Time Necklace (2nd Gempunk Jewelry, for Aves)
Norwescon is a science, science fiction and fantasy convention that takes place on Easter Weekend each year. We are an all-volunteer organization and always have room for more dedicated volunteers. Without members, though, there would be no reason to hold a convention; thank you for your support.
