2013 Clallam Bay Comicon

You kids KNOW you shouldn't smoke, right?

During Clallam Bay/Sekiu Fun Days in 2013. 
The newly renovated building - nice job, Lions!

WHERE: Clallam Bay/Sekiu Lion's Club

Here's the Building, outside and in:

WHEN: We're officially listed as 13-14, but if you can get here on the 12th, we won't turn you away or not let you sell stuff. Breakdown is Sunday by noon.
Yes, we can move the tables. No, we can't move their art.

HOUSING: Get your ass in gear - it fills up FAST! And also Neah Bay: GETTING to Neah Bay and back, if you'd prefer not to drive every day - contact Olympic Peninsula Errand Service, for Janet or Adam: (360) 640-4583 NOTE: Neah Bay is a First Nations town, and dry. And you don't want to drive THAT road after enjoying some wind-down juice.

With Fun Days you get an old-fashioned small-town parade, a KILLER pot-luck if you come in early on Friday, a barbecue, and a bajillion fireworks Saturday, some of them even legal. We're the comicon with the BEACHES, bitches.

EVERYONE WELCOME. If you do comics, poetry, gallery art, jewelry, paint cars, bake pies, sing, do stand-up, sculpture, hip-hop, light shows, whatever - bring it. Cosplay wanted for the parade. AND HORSES!

BOOTH FEES: $25 ($27.00 Paypal). Contact for booth space:

ADMISSION for public: free. "We don't need no stinkin' badges." You're all special guests to us. And don't have to prove you're pros or amateurs.

AWARDS: Who are we to judge? If your fans love you, they love you.

PROVIDED: space, electricity (We ALMOST had wi-fi; maybe next year). Wi-fi is 24/7 at the library, right around the corner. LOTS of table space! Bring extra chairs if you can. There will be a free table for flyers, charities, and the comicon donation jar.

SPACE: Your choice of inside tables, outside covered porch, outside gazebo, or parking lot in front of the Fire Hall.

PANELS: Decide when you want to be here, based on the link calendar (following), and we'll stick you in. First come, first served, and NO, we don't care what you do. You're a grownup. If you want to negotiate with other panels for times, just let us know at donnabarr01 at gmail dot com.

GAMES: Marcus Evenstar is our official gamesmaster. Ask him. If you haven't got Facebook, we'll hook you up at donnabarr01 at gmail dot com. Facebook:
Gaming Porch!
CATERING: We have a NICE kitchen available, so if you want to bring and sell food, take care of your own licensing or whatever. Kids with cookies and charities very welcome.

HOW TO GET HERE: Take a flight to Port Angeles, then take the Forks bus to the the Clallam Bay connection at Sappho.  Yes, Sappho. Or take Olympic Bus Lines from Seattle.

BEST, safest, most scenic route if driving: Highway 101 around Lake Crescent, then Highway 113-112 to Clallam Bay (slightly longer, but recommended).

AUDIO-VISUAL: If you want to run film media, the library has an After Hours @ The Library Program and is open Friday and Saturday. We haven't set anything up connected with the Comicon, but contact them to set up your non-profit event anyway - and take donations for the library:

FIRE DISPLAYS: If you want to play Burning Man, contact the District Five Fire Department:

LAST-MINUTE PRINTING: Already on the peninsula and forgot something? Need a large print order at the last minute? These are the guys: 

T-SHIRTS: Don't want to drag a million t-shirts along, especially if you have a new design? Get 'em done in Port Angeles and pick 'em up there:
CHILDREN: watch your own.

TRASH: Keep inside at night! Or the dogs will get it.

FACILITY CARE: No tape of any sort on the wall. Respect the Lion's Club's wall displays.
Don't set yourself on fire.
