The ConJosé Hospitality Division needs your junk
We ask people to bring in empty/clean:
Hospitality will be running mini "Junkyard Wars" challenges each day in Fanspace. Fans (like you) will build structures and devices (a different wacky challenge each day) out of the assorted junk we'll provide and some of your junk might show up in the winning thing!
What else is happening in Fanspace?
Morning tea and coffee, thanks to SCIFI, the Southern California Institute of Fan Interests. An afternoon tea party, hosted by Strange Horizons. Comfy sofas. The morning newspapers. Not silly enough for you? How about a Paper Doll Masquerade? Domino Fall? Group Juggling? Face Painting, Labyrinth walking, a fannish Scrabble tournament? Balloon Animals. And a couple of really strange things to do with paper cups
Fanspace will also have tables for chess/checkers/cards/Mafia and other games of your choice. We'll have magnetic poetry, jigsaw puzzles, a Speaker's Corner (and we want speakers!) and a Cartoonists' Jam (ditto on the cartoonists!).
(And we're not even going to discuss the nap corral or peculiar inflatable stuff at this time )
OK, we have your interest (we hope). But these things won't run as well without your help and participation. If you're interested in being involved in any of this, write to us. Or, talk to us. (Or, at the very least, just bring in the junk!)
How much junk?
Even a few pieces of
Fanspace is what we're calling the concourses in the Convention Center. It's the space between the programming rooms and the exhibit halls. We'll have a drop off spot for the junk next to the inflatables check-in station starting Wednesday afternoon. Registration is nearby, so you can drop off your stuff at Fanspace before or after you pick up your badge and registration materials.
Thanks! (And we hope you make Fanspace your own space )
