NEW BOISE ORDER Please read the following post (copied and pasted from an ID Falls Thread). From: Borneo Defender of the Fandom Fandemonium.com About us: "Fandemonium is a Fandom convention that was created by and is run for fans. Each year of the convention is different from the last. As each year its designed around what the fans are telling us they want. And on what fans like yourselves are willing to contribute to it. "Our members come from all over the state. The convention itself focuses on a rather wide range of Fandom. Such as Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Anime, Horror, Gaming, Indie, Comics, etc. But primarely the focus is Fandom itself. ...And since companies don't put on conventions in Idaho anymore it looks like its up to the fans to do it if we want a place and time to celebrate our love of Fandom in a big way." Fademonium covers a lot of areas from horror, sci-fi, and fantasy. What about SW? "As for Star Wars, we acttualy have quite a bit. Including a Star Wars FanFilm called "Saving Star Wars" that will be shown during the convention. As well as numerous short Star Wars FanFilms & Animations that will be playing in the video room's and on various terminals during the convention, also hopefully a few Star Wars themed Fan Music Videos will be submitted. We also have a suprise or two that will be announced during the convention." Sci-Fi in general? "As for Sci-Fi in general we are running showings of Firefly, FarScape, Quantum Leap, LEXX, Omega Doom, Dark City, etc. As well as Sci-Fi FanFilms & FanShorts. We have a panel on 'Increasing human longevity the quest for immortality'. So while we are not a Star Wars nor even a strictly Sci-Fi convention we do have a fair bit of both Star Wars & Sci-Fi content." Will there be contests? "We do indeed have quite a few contests; Costume/CosPlay Contest, Maniac Masquerade Costume Ball, FanFilm Contest, Fan Music Video Contest, Short Story Contest, and several PC, Console and Paper & Dice gaming tournaments. And many more... "While There are no fee's associated for entering the many contests we are running there is an admission fee to get into the convention itself:" Pre-Register on our website or by mail before July 31st 2004 3-day Pass $30.00 / 2-day Pass $21.00 / 1-day Pass $12.00 At The Door prices 3-day Pass $35.00 / 2-day Pass $24.00 / 1-day Pass $13.00 "Guests of Honor, Special Guests and Those running panels and workshops at the convention get in for free though. Which I would suppose is a definte benifit for chiping in and lending your skills and knowledge to the cause of Fandom. Like I said we can only do what the fans want and what they are willing to contribute. We always welcome fans who want to do panels and/or workshops relating to any genre we cover. " "As for the limit on number of enteries. There is acttualy a three film limit, that three limit also applies to Fan Music Videos & Short Stories. Basicaly to make sure that everyone who is intrested gets a chance to submit there FanFilms, Fan Music Videos & Short Stories and acttualy have them seen at the convention." Here's a chance for the NBO to make a "presence". Go for it dudes! Malcolm!
