Post-convention potential event: Pickup games. And a second hall cleanup - and if you don't help, the Munchkins will get you. The blue ones.

Notes on our participants: 

*From Marcus Evenstart, Gamesmaster: "Greetings from MIB 2404, gaming advocate! I'll be bringing a selection of games to this lovely event from my collection: Munchkin (several varieties), Ogre Designer's Edition (now with giant monsters), Girl Genius (card game from the web comic), Tokkaido (travelers in Edo Japan). There are more on the shelf (Roborally, Myth Fortunes, Discworld, XXXenophile, Arkham Horror, etc.) but I'd rather not haul those unless there's a request.
"Since we're arriving on Friday for the full weekend, I'll have time for pick-up games. If we can't find a venue in town, I'll be bringing table and chairs and we could play at our hotel or other well-lit, warm & dry location.

Be seeing you!"

**From Linden Cook, Project Wonderful: "Hi everyone! I'm Linden and I manage the customer service experience at Project Wonderful. And I'll be kicking off the Clallam Bay Comicon's panels! It's an intro to advertising your comic or writing online, both generally and in our auction.
"I've worked with PW since 2008 and helped over 6000 people over that period, including designing and running many campaigns first-hand with a wide variety of budgets. I envision this panel as starting with a quick overview, and then ideally we can move to a Q&A format to gear the main information to whatever those of you there need right now.
It's going to be a fun weekend, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!"

***Dara Korra'ti, a.k.a. Solarbird the Lightbringer, is a supervillain musician, systems disrupter, and general Part of the Problem who has triggered more than her fair share of IBM Urgent Service Bulletins. She also built and operates Supervillain Studios, where currently, she's wrapping up work on the _Free Court of Seattle_ soundtrack album, _Bone Walker_.

Leannan Sidhe is a fey musician with wandering gypsy feet, a shimmering soprano voice, and writes music that tends to the bittersweet.

How long should each panel be?
How many venues do you have?
What sort of audio visual equipment is available?

Donna Barr said...

Well, if you need two hours and you got here first, that's what you get. If somebody else wants some of that time, they have to talk to you. I have four venues: check the comicon link up there to find the link to spaces. Take your pick. No audio-visual at this time, as far as I know. I don't think our Lion's Club has one. The library - around the corner - has a meeting room for events. Hit http://www.nols.org and offer your presentation as independent of the comicon, although we'll list it "as a courtesy." Because the library can't do paying gigs or paying shows. But they CAN offer film nights and stuff. So ask 'em about Monday, and see what you can do. And when you've got your 6 songs and movie, come back and tell us what you did.
