To Norwescon 33.
We have a fabulous line up of Guests of Honor this year. Please check the pocket program for their every move. Fill their panel rooms full. Make their autograph line as long as you can. Show them just how much you appreciate them attending this wonderful convention.
Enjoy the dealers room and art show. We have lots of new dealers and artists.
If you have any questions please come find me in the convention office in room 7106. Just ask for Tracy.
Have a fun and safe time!
PROGRAMME CHANGES WILL BE MASSIVE THIS YEAR, SO PAY ATTENTION
Yeah, I Mean You
There have been a lot of programme changes in the last couple of weeks. Please be extra aware of them this year, and check each day's 'zine for updates. You've been warned.

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 FYI: don't immanetize the echelon. That's wrong. You'll understand why eventually.
