When in doubt...when in need... When the apocalypse hits...

Query Jeeves

WELCOME TO NORWESCON 35!

Welcome to Norwescon, I hope that you all are as excited as I am. A great way to start your convention and to meet all our GoH's is to a end the Banquet tonight; tickets will be on sale today in the lobby.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the convention. I love meeting and talking to our members, so feel free to stop me in the halls and tell me about what you like (or don’t like) about our convention, as we are always looking for ways to make Norwescon better.

Norwescon 35 Chairman
