You may notice that the progress reports are a bit condensed this year. We are making an effort to Go Green by reducing the size of the document that is mailed and providing members and friends of the convention detailed information at This also allows us to redirect funds back into the convention budget, giving us more resources as we strive to make Norwescon 33 the best convention yet!
