We hope everyone had a good time at MW*C 31 Flavors of Fandom!
I have been unable to upload info for MW*C 32 to the website from the hotel, so it will probably have to wait until we get home and the computer is reassembled there.
Your patience is appreciated.
We would also like to see any photos anyone is willing to share from the con for possible inclusion online and in the Post-Con Progress Report. Good photos from the Masquerade are especially needed. Send to email@example.com. Thanks!
Due to the remodeling at CWB, we are revising the flyer rules from what was in PR1:
Flyers: Flyers may only be distributed by MediaWest*Con members, or through MediaWest*Con staff (flyers from non-members may be sent c/o the MW*C address). Once again, everyone is asked to refrain from posting signs or putting out flyers until Thursday afternoon. Flyers may be posted on glass, mirror, marble/tile, and in elevators (except on elevator doors). DO NOT post on painted, wallpapered or wood surfaces, including the stacked wood pillars.
Due to the remodeling, we don’t know where exactly where Official MediaWest*Con 31 signs will be posted, but there will be a designated area. The Atrium remodeling has left fewer dividers to place stacks of flyers on, but they can still be stacked on the tops of the remaining dividers and on the adjoining floor if necessary.
Please remember that signs may only be posted with low tack masking tape (or similar low-tack, non-marring material). A limited quantity of low-tack tape will be available at MediaWest*Con registration. No pins, tacks, staples, etc.. Flyers attached with other tape or potentially damaging means, or in non-designated areas (such as wallpaper), will be removed and disposed of. Also, due to the limited flyer space around the Atrium, everyone is asked to limit each of their flyers to one stack only.
Subject matter of flyers must be of general fannish interest (‘zines, party announcements, cons, etc.), not of a personal nature, and be presented in a reasonably tasteful manner — please remember that the general public can easily read flyers in public areas of the hotel. Please remove outdated flyers and signs promptly.
Flyers not in keeping with these guidelines will be removed and disposed of. MediaWest*Con is not responsible for the specific content or accuracy of any flyers.
Door decorations: Decorations must be on the doors only, not the areas surrounding the doors. You must use low-tack materials only (such as low-tack masking tape or Post-It products), nothing permanent or damaging (such as duct tape, 2 sided foam tape, or anything on wallpaper), and to remove your door decorations before you check out.
Shaheen Chevrolet has provided vans to do grocery runs to Meijer and Krogers for MW*C 31 members!
Vans wil do runs during these hours:
Thursday 11am — 4pm
Friday 10am — 1pm
Vans wil be in front of CWB between runs.
For those not familiar with those stores, Meijer has groceries and virtually everything else (clothes, electronics, hardware, etc.) and Krogers concentrates on groceries.
CWB has gone through the waiting list, and several rooms are still available!
Contact Mallory at CWB: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 517/694-8123 or 800/333-8123.
In keeping with the MW*C 31 Flavors of Fandom theme, we would like to hold an Ice Cream Social on Sunday (sundae?) 3pm — 5pm. Cost would be $5.75 per person for a variety of flavors catered by CWB. We would need a minimum of 50 people, so please let us know (email@example.com) if you would be likely to attend the party.
We will be showing Harvey Putter and the Rediculous Premise at the con.
See WWW.HARVEYPUTTER.COM for more on the Harry Potter parody video.
There were not enough pre-orders to do MW*C 31 souvenirs (T-shirts, etc.). Money paid can be refunded at the con, or applied to next years membership, etc..
The same applies to souvenirs for previous years that were not produced.
