WELCOME TO NORWESCON 34
I want to welcome you all to Norwescon. For those of you who don't know, Norwescon is a 100% volunteer-run event. We have spent the last year putting together this year's convention. Consequently, we have four exciting days of programming, paneling, and events planned for you! We are always looking for ways to improve Norwescon so feel free to find me or any of my fellow department heads to chat. But don't be surprised if we ask you for help as we bustle along to make certain you have a great time! Thanks for coming and see you around the con.

HONOR OUR FEN
The Celestial Convention was created to honor Rick Stierl, a regular for hears at local cons. When Rick passed, RustyCon asked the Élan Empire to create an event to remember him, and by extension, all the local fen who have passed on.

MANGO THAI BY WALLY PARK
The Thai restaurant and bar across the street is open. We stopped in Wednesday for dinner. The food was excellent and the staff eager to please. Their menu is reasonably priced and features all of the standard Thai items along with a few house specialties (pad thai & chicken rama were the dishes we tried). We were impressed with the openness of the restaurant and the willingness of the cooks to add spice to our dishes (1 - 5 spice levels, 5 is going to be fire, we tried 2 & 3). They also have brown rice on the menu, which is always a nice thing to see. Combine the atmosphere with the good food and ber on tap, how can you go wrong?
Q: How many Victorians does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: [Ahem] We do not discuss this with ladies and children present.
