Message from the Chair Alton - Darkovercon 34 Update #1

Greetings and welcome to the first of what will hopefully be monthly updates on what is happening with this year's Darkovercon.

So, with no further ado, here are this month's highlights.

1 The website has been updated to reflect 2011 info. More information will be added throughout the year so check the website regularly.

2 We have our Guests of Honor for 2011 – Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman.

3 Our room rates for 2011 are only $97 a night, plus tax. This is only a one dollar increase from 2009 and 2010.

4 Melissa Scott after a long absence is able to return this year.

5 Diana Paxson will be here this year as well.

6 We are working on setting up a paypal link so people can pay for memberships in advance via paypal. We expect this up and running no later than the end of February.

7 At Darkovercon 2011 you will be able to pay for artwork via paypal.

8 We are thinking about a Darkovercon t-shirt. More information about this next month.

We need feedback from you! Darkovercon is your convention. What would you like to see added, what would you like to see changed, and what would upset you if it was altered in any way? While we can't guarantee that we can do everything you want, if you don't let me know what you want, I can't fix it. So, please write me at jaelle at darkovercon dot org and let me know what you would like to see.

That's all for this month – looking forward to hearing from you,
