Still looking for a few good crew members!

We are still looking for a few good crew members to help out in the ConSuite. If you are
willing to work a two hour shift, please swing on by and sign-up. We'll save you a trip to the Volunteers' Desk by having the appropriate forms available. Sign up early (and often)!!

Aliens on Hawaiian Holiday

The news here in paradise is that there is an alien invasion, of sorts. These visitors are not aggressive. In fact, they are quite relaxed. They have picked our ConSuite as their vacation spot for 2002.

While here, they plan on checking out the sites - a volcano, the beach and the underwater treasures. Why not drop in and see why they've chosen this to be their point of relaxation? You can be sure that not only are they sunning themselves and enjoying great nourishment, but they are also open to discussing their home lands with Earthlings.

Oh, and if you would like to assist in hosting our extra-terrestrial visitors, drop us a line a We'd love to have you as a part of our team. Positions that are still available include: cabana boy/girl, beverage host/hostess, cleaning crew and pre-con set-up. Only experience we require is either enjoying hard work and long hours while
mingling with a couple thousand of your closest friends you've never met or the desire to do so.

Clearance Sale at the ConSuite

Mark Monday, September 2, 2002 on your calendars!! The ConSuite will have all the decorations as well as some of our serviceware available for purchase. Sales are first come, first served. Including but but not limited to are the volcano, beach huts, and palm trees. See any of our staff for details.
