May General Meeting

If you are a staff member who is not registered for the convention, please come prepared to register. Staff price is $10, and you will need to fill out a staff registration form at the meeting.
We will also begin training for the “street team”, individuals who will hand out flyers, posters, etc. to local businesses for Publicity. If you are interested in being part of the team, please attend this meeting.
Here’s your chance to view the hotel and test out the free wireless. This is the best way to judge the room sizes, layout, and get the logistical items out of the way before con. This is a public meeting, so those of you who are simply curious about the space are welcome to tag along!
Congratulations to the winners of this year’s mascot competition! First, second, and third place are all displayed in the banner from right to left until May 1st, when the the lovely blue lady on the end will grace all publications with her mascot presence. Thank you to all those entered! Every piece was beautiful, and the race was neck and neck right until the end.
Please watch for the next mascot contest beginning May 1st, 2006 for the 2007 Kumoricon mascot!

Kumoricon was at Sakuracon, and was well received. We pre-registered about twice as many people as last year, and offered a Miss Ayeka doll from Tenchi Muyo as an incentive to register right away!
Congratulations to James Jensen, our lucky winner!
Great thanks to those who rescued me from the booth! Really, it was a lot of fun telling people about Kumoricon, and even more fun since the booth was in the vendor’s room! (I got a GIANT Choco Cat!!!)
If you have yet to register, you still have time to get our discounted rate of $30. Follow the link above.
Staff gets a special discount as well. If you are willing to help with the planning of Kumoricon, you can take advantage of this discount.
Be sure to join us at the next general meeting. We look forward to seeing you!

Sakuracon has arrived once again, and Kumoricon will be there. Meg will be manning the table, located in the exhibitors hall, as often as possible.
The table needs coverage for all of Friday, and intermittently throughout the weekend. This is a great opportunity to gain volunteer hours that can lead to special staff perks at Kumoricon (without the staff headaches.) Staffers, this is a great chance for you to tell everyone how great we are.
Hope to see you there!
