LepreCon 34 Special Events
Balcony Decorating Contest!
In the Francisco Grande tower, everyone has a balcony
– so give it a little thought and bring down your supplies
(or buy them in town) and dress up your balcony! (Just
keep things secure because it’s known to get windy there.)
We’ll take photos of the finalists’ efforts on Saturday,
and post them in the lobby for you to vote on on Sunday.
Ice Cream Social on Friday Night!
Come partake of chilly sweet goodness in ConSuite on Friday
night – with Meet the Pros only a flight of stairs away!
(And if you can’t do ice cream, how about a snowcone?)
Regency Dance on Friday Night!
Dress up or not, but come learn to do Regency dancing
with Marty & Alice Massoglia on Friday night in the
Attn Paper Airplane Engineers!
Come create up to three designs and give them a test flight
off the 8th floor balcony on Saturday afternoon – competition
for accuracy, distance and hang-time.
Treasure Hunt Saturday Afternoon!
Quetzalcoatl and his evil dragon minions are plotting
to destroy the world on December 21, 2012! You and your
team of up to 3 others are challenged to foil their plot
and save humanity. You’ll need to think creatively, solve
puzzles, act cooperatively, and have a little luck if
you want to save the world and win the prize!
Gods and goddesses from around the world and throughout
history will try to help you, but dragons are very sneaky
The game will run throughout Saturday afternoon – your
team may save the world in under an hour, or you may prefer
to puzzle it out on and off throughout the day. The team
with the most tokens wins!
Day - Saturday Night Stargazing
Saturday is National Astronomy Day. We are planning
on having at least one telescope set up on Saturday night
where we hope to take advantage of the lower light pollution
in the area. If you would like to bring a telescope to
set up, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Costumed Modern Dance on Saturday Night!
"If you've done six impossible things this morning, why
not round it off with breakfast at Milliway's — the Restaurant
at the End of the Universe!" - Douglas Adams
Come boogie the night away dressed in your finest costume
at Milliway's (Eagle's Nest), and join in the festivities
as we celebrate the end of the Universe in its grand splendor.
Park your Heart of Gold, TARDIS, or Firefly outside and
join us for an evening of costumes, music, costumes and
fun, oh yeah, and costumes. You don’t have to dress up,
but it’s more fun if you do! Even if you can think of
something better to do, there won’t be time! Ours is at
the end of days!
(Remember, “no covering is NO COSTUME” please keep
your outfits PG-13.)
Go Fly a Kite Sunday morning!
Bring a kite and take advantage of the lack of omnipresent
electrical and phone wires! Of course, beware kite-eating
trees, though. ;) A few inexpensive kites will be available
for sale if you’re unable to bring your own.
