Not a Personality Test.
Artists Alley today runs from 9am to 6pm with painting, maille knitting, loom, digital art, jewelry demos, face painting and a bunch of ways for you to participate.
Ask an artist for their opinion on your work. Ask how they do theirs! You can pick up tips, see works-in-progress, and even buy art directly from the people who do it. Preferably often. Very often! Artists Alley is where art is up close and personal!
VOLUNTEER, YOU SMEGS!

Greetings from the crew and Marine strike group of the USS Chinook. We will be receiving and commissioning our Nebula Class Variant II Starship on Saturday, April 3rd, at 4pm in the Maxi's Saloon at Norwescon! We would be delighted if you would beam aboard and join us for the ceremony and celebration!
Our crew, based in Renton, Washington, Region 5, seeks to boldly go and help prepare our world for a better future. We accept members from all areas of planet Earth and would love for you to join us! We are an all adult crew, but we do have a cadet program for younger recruits agents ten through seventeen. Our purpose is to have fun in a futuristic setting, enjoy the company of like-minded individuals, and give back to the community via our various charities and community service activities. We have monthly crew meetings on the 3rd Saturday of the month.
Learn more about the world of STARFLEET through Academy courses including Xenostudies on Klingons, Vulcans, etc., plus Aerospace, Infantry, other Military Studies, Strategy, and Leadership. If you are interested in joining us on the USS Chinook, please check out our table at Norwescon, go to http://www.usschinook.org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
"It's in the file 'bite-me-starfleet.txt'"
"It will pucker sphincters you didn't know you had."
"We're Security, not Safety!"
"You are the only man I know who complains his thing is too big."
"Have you gotten laid since last year?"
"No grab-ass in the line!"
"Oh, you mean tomorrow! We are totally tl;dr-ing it tomorrow."
The Singular Voice
is the daily newsletter of Norwescon 33. The editors cannot be bribed as our needs and desires are beyond your imaginations, but news items, lulz, fish biscuits and other treats may be left in submissions boxes at Information, Registration, and Office. Deadline for each day's issue is 10pm the night before. Oh, and just FYI: don't sign the billion-year contract. Who knew that shit was enforceable? I mean really.
