Escapade 29 is right around the corner! Less than 2 weeks until the convention starts, and there are still a few things you can do to get ready.
First, a special note regarding elevator access in the hotel: If you are planning to commute to the con and will not be staying in the hotel, please let us know and provide us with your full real name, so we can make arrangements with the hotel for your elevator access. They are less willing than in past years to unlock the elevators during the convention weekend. If you let us know, we can give your name to the hotel, and they will provide you with a special key to use while you’re attending Escapade, so you can access the elevators and reach the con suite. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Here are some other things you can do now to prepare for Escapade:
- Register for the con! Did you know there are still open spots for full weekend or single day memberships? There are! Not 100% sure you ever actually registered for the con? Want to make sure your friends are attending? Please take a moment to review the membership list on the Escapade website to confirm that your own membership is current, and please reach out to your friends if you don’t see them on the list! Use the following links to check registration status for you and your friends, and to register for the con:
- Contribute to the Escapade Art Show! If you have considered bringing art to display or sell at the art show, it’s not too late. If you know you plan to bring art for the show, please register your art ahead of time. This helps save time for art show staff and volunteers at the con and is much appreciated. Details about the art show and the link to register your art can be found here:
- Sign up for DIY panel slots! The panel schedule has been created based on the votes of the membership, but there are still slots in the schedule for you to revive panels that didn’t make the cut or create new panels that weren’t submitted to the original ballot. Panel slots are assigned on a first come, first served basis, including any slots remaining once the convention is underway. Your panel information must be received by Friday 2/15 to be included in the Escapade program book. Review the panel schedule and follow the instructions on the Escapade panel page now to get your pick of the available slots:
- Consider volunteering during the con! Escapade is grateful for the enthusiastic assistance of our volunteers throughout each convention. We literally could not do it without you. Please review the Escapade schedule and consider signing up for some volunteer shifts. Visit the volunteer page for more info about volunteering:
