    I know, already I am posting for the next con but last year went so well I know we don't want to miss out on it again-at least thats what I am thinking.

    They have announced the dates for Bubonicon 2005

    Dates: August 26-28, 2005
    Where: Wyndham Airport Hotel, Yale Blvd & Gibson SE
    Pass Costs: $35.00 per person this year.

    No prices on tables yet though.

    This year, I will be getting my own table but will ask to be near you guys-so I won't be able to work the Mos Alba table but I can still help if you need it. Hopefully we can get the corner again. I think it worked really well for us.

    Anyways, maybe we can get together something for the costume contest and such this year. I know Donna was thinking of some awesome ideas for a skit.

    If they added one more table in that tiny room....we would be a Fire Violation for sure! :p

    Alright, y'all. Bubonicon 37 has one table left, and I'm dropping off the money for it today.

    I have three memberships available. Who plans on working the table for at least two days of the con?

    I need to know ASAP.

    Oh yeah, quick update:


    I managed to meet up with Craig from Bubonicon today and paid for THE LAST TABLE in the dealer's room.

    I paid for the table plus the max of 5 memberships.

    Now, how those memberships will be doled out is another matter, and hence why I asked who would be working the table at least 2 of the days (Friday/Saturday, Saturday/Sunday, Friday/Sunday). Oh yeah, and you still have to pay for those memberships - they ain't free. FYI - $25 bucks a pop.

    As we did last year, we'll do mostly first come first serve. BUT NOT YET. I have to get some stuff figured out before I take any ... takers. o_O

    Regular admission/membership for the con is now running at $30 for the weekend, $35 at the door. Daily rates will go up later - check the Bubonicon site.

    May meeting we'll start putting together a *gasp* committee for Bubonicon organization.

    More info to come!

    What does working the table entail?

    Sitting behind the table. Selling toys. Accepting donations to Toys For Tots. Taking money in exchange for a raffle ticket. Singing and dancing to attract attention.

    I'm also available for working the table. I have saved some coinage to put towards paying for my membership.

    Great!

    Does that count for everybody? We'll do Dealer Memberships first come, first serve, I think.

    Or maybe not. I'll PM those who have said they are interested.
