Hi,

I am Marc Grossman and I am the Lunacon Filk Coordinator for Lunacon 2013.

As this will be my first year, I am working a number o initiatives while I'm also looking at data for the last three years conventions. those who know me will know I am almost never outside the Filk room during the convention.

While I am starting my work, I welcome all your recommendations and am looking for those who will volunteer for panels. Let me know which Filk-Related panels you'd like to participate in as your panel ideas may spark something I've not thought of.

I the meantime, I am looking for those who will be attending Lunacon2013 and play the following instruments:
- A Drummer
- A Flute or recorder player
- A Fiddler

I can not yet explain why, but I look forward to something fun coming out of it.

Hotel reservations will open in September.

We are experiencing difficulties with online registration and will open it as soon as we can. Since there was some confusion regarding the donations, the initial rate will be $30 and will be honored for 30 days after online registration is available.

Mea Cupa when you know stuff so well you forget to post the relevent info.

Yes the Lunacon 2013 is March 15 through 17.

Lunacon - suggestions wanted May. 30th, 2012 @ 01:01 am
buddykat

If you would like to make any suggestions for Lunacon programming, please email programming-suggestions@lunacon.org.  While all suggestions are welcome, we only have a limited number of rooms and times for program items.  Use of suggestions is subject to time, available panelists, etc.  Suggestions may be changed, combined with other suggestions, or not used at all.

For panel suggestions, we would like a panel title, description, and suggested panelists.  Remember, just because a panel idea is fabulous, it does not mean we will have the panelists available.

For suggested program participants, please include their name, a brief bio or description of why they should be on programming, and any available contact information (including websites) – self suggestion is fine too.  Something to remember when suggesting program participants: all program participants (except the Guests of Honor) pay for their own travel, hotel, etc.

While we appreciate the enthusiasm, please DO NOT contact potential program participants.  All invitations need to be done through our Programming Department; it is very important that everyone receives the same information, through official channels. 

In addition, if you have a suggestion, please do NOT rely on posting here for it to be put into our database.  Please email programming-suggestions@lunacon.org in order to be certain that we receive the suggestion and it is entered into our database.


Update on Lisa Rogers' passing May. 28th, 2012 @ 07:54 pm
team_banzai
Hi folks,

I spent this past afternoon with Ward on their porch.
he is definitely hurting, and he's slowly starting to move on those things he could not over the holiday weekend. You need to be aware that Lisa's cellphone "disappeared" in the hospital, with all the numbers and contacts. So you will need to call Ward via his home or cell numbers.

This is also in way of explanation and apology for the slow nature of the way Lisa's passing has been gotten out.

If you do not have them, you can contact me as I do.
We discussed his plans for honoring Lisa's desires and interest. We will be reaching out to those who can help with the various plans Ward has now found himself making as we can, and some of those are starting with this general notice email.

I will be reaching out to others for help as I can and have contact information.
I have another who will be asking permission to give me you contact data too.

I will be checking LJ daily. If you wish to help, please email my personal email(if you have it) or send me a personal message here.
