Would you like to help plan, organize, and create the Pacific Northwest’s premier science-fiction and fantasy convention? November’s Norwescon 35 planning meeting will be held Saturday, November 10th, 2012.
Along with Artist Guest of Honor Lee Moyer and our other great artists, we are excitedly looking for new participants to bring to the art show. If you’d like to participate in the Norwescon 36 Art Show, head on over to our Art Show page to check out the policies and get info on how to register!
We’re often asked why Norwescon and Sakura-Con are both scheduled for Easter weekend each year. Both are big geek-friendly events, and while there’s a slightly different focus, there are many who would prefer to attend both, rather than having to either split time between the two or choose one over the other.
Norwescon was mentioned in an account of a project to develop a functional mechanical hand. It turns out that a gadget first created for a costume, and first shown publicly at Norwescon 34, is being adapted to assist a South African man who lost fingers on his right hand in a woodworking accident.
Happy summer! The annual Norwescon Volunteer Appreciation Picnic went off gangbusters last weekend, and preparations for Norwescon 36 are already well underway! We’re currently taking applications for Game Masters, panelists, and panel ideas.
