    Info:
    There will be a volunteer schedule. I need someone that can commit to a friday for sure. I will be there friday but I'd like to have someone there with me to give breaks or whatever. I will post a sign up sheet at the February meeting. If you do choose to sign up for a period of time please show up for it. If you can't make it please make arrangements with me in advance so I can find a replacement.

    I'm working on a 4 page brochure focusing on us for the con. I have limited space available if anyone would like to contribute. Other things I need for the table: a banner, photo albums, ???you guys tell me???

    Check in point for other Fan Forces...If you are coming from out of state please stop on by and say hi. This is also where you can stop and check in for the banquet. More details to come from greencat on that.



    Charity Raffle

    Info:
    If at all possible I would like to have two baskets for the raffle. A grand prize and a first runner up. I have commitments from two vendors for donations but that won't cover it. If you would like to donate something (no matter how small) for the baskets please let me know. The baskets themsleves will be donated from a local basket making company I have a contact for. The proceeds from the raffle will go to the Sago Mine Fund to help the families of the mine tragedy.

    I would like to remind everyone I still need group photos of your chapter in costume if you want to compete for the best costuming group award.

    Thanks everyone!

    Has anyone decided from here if they will be attending the awards this year?
