I'll post a report on United Fan Con East as soon as I have a chance (maybe later in the week), but I just wanted to let everyone know that the Farscape table seemed to be a success. We raised some money for Penny Lane, handed out flyers, bookmarks & magnets, and talked with others who all seemed happy to see a Farscape table there! Some hadn't heard about the mini yet either! =)

Virginia Hey was amazing and gracious, and she took time with each person at her table. I got an autograph for my Mom (who'd really wanted to be there to meet Ms. Hey) and a calendar with sketches of the Farscape cast drawn by Virginia Hey herself. (She's very talented.)

Jo presented the con book to her. Thanks to everyone who either sent messages, photos, etc., or stopped by the table to write/draw something for Ms. Hey. :D

Herdthinner has areport for Saturday up on her Live Journal if you'd like to check it out in the meantime.

Escapade Announcement!


They're back! The Scaperopera folks have said that they're interested in putting on another of their inspired performances at Escapade Boston. If you were at any of the Scapercons, you'll remember this. It's an experience that shouldn't be missed. Want to participate? Want to volunteer behind the scenes? Let us know at programming@escapadeboston.com

Art Show

Made a DRD from scratch? Particularly proud of your charcoal drawing of a character? Maybe you built a Budong in the snow! Show off your creations at our art show! Scaper creations will be displayed in the Hospitality Suite all weekend for your oohing and aahing pleasure!

* Remember, register online before April 15 for a three-day pass (with or without banquet) and be entered for a chance to win a FREE 3-Day Pass!

Escapade Luncheon and the Meet&Greets

Welcoming Luncheon

For some of you, this may be your first Farscape convention ever. For others, it will be old hat. Either way, it's always a little hard the first day to find everyone you're looking for.

The Escapade committee is trying to make that a little easier all around by planning a welcoming luncheon on Friday afternoon. We haven't yet finalized the menu, but there are rumors of an entirely chocolate selection available through the hotel.

So at noon on Friday, come to the Hospitality Suite and get some good food, welcome new Scapers and meet old, and kick the weekend off right!

Meet and Greets

CBOOL, SACC, CEO, SSS, and many, many more. There's an anagram for every
aspect of Farscape fandom that you can imagine.

Friday afternoon we'll be opening up the large panel room and scheduling out meeting times - as many as you want. If you're working with one of these groups, and you'd like to set out a time for everyone to gather, just email the programming address (programming@escapadeboston.com) and
let us know, and we'll reserve the room for you and put you on the schedule.

Any questions, as always, can be addressed to programming@escapadeboston.com

And remember, register for a three-day ticket (with or without banquet) before April 15th and be entered for a chance to win a FREE three-day pass! If you've registered already, you are automatically eligible. If you haven't registered yet, what are you waiting for? :)

Escapade Pre-Registration Raffle and Trivia Contest Announcement!

whew! try saying all of *that* in one breath .. *bg*

** Scaper convention Escapade Boston 2004
Pre-Registration Raffle

The advantages to pre-registering your ticket are many, and they're listed on the Escapade website.

But now we're offering another one: you could get in free.

For every single person who pre-registers a three-day pass (with or without banquet ticket) before April 15, we'll be entering your name into a hat. On April 16, we'll be drawing a name out of that hat, and if it's your name, your money will be reimbursed, completely. You'll get to enjoy all the spectacular activities for free, just because you were a go-getter.

And don't forget: if we can fill up all those hotel rooms, the first 100 people to pre-register three-day passes will get a free Escapade t-shirt.

Sound like incentive to you? Get registering!


Trivia Contest

So, you think you know everything there is to know about Farscape?

How about we put that to the test?

On Sunday afternoon, Escapade will be sponsoring a sudden death trivia contest. The audience will get to ask questions, and if the vict - er, volunteer onstage sucumbs to your question, it's your turn in the hot seat. You think you've got what it takes? Bring it on.

* Any questions at any time, please address them to
kerlin@escapadeboston.com or programming@escapadeboston.com.
Questions about registration should be directed to lisa@escapadeboston.com or
registration@escapadeboston.com. Thanks!
