Biggest Event Other than Anne being at con this year

Costume Contest !!!
Remember last year Jody said that if we get 20 participant she would put the winner's name in a book, which is pretty amazing, So I hope everyone shows up to the costume contest and if you need shoulder knots or badges for a pern character my sister does custom made ones and you can contact her at manxldy@yahoo.com. But no matter what make sure you make it to this event in a costume from any of Anne's worlds to count and we can really pull together.

Dragon Con Parade


Greetings all!

I and my wife have been coming to Dragon Con every other year now since 2005 and love it! Although I may be just a bit bias I think the folks of the Anne McCaffrey's Worlds Track (AKA Weyr Fest) are some of the best! 

The last time we came (2009) we were given the honor of carrying the banner for the group in the Dragon Con parade, I noticed then that it might be easier to carry the sign if it were attached (non-permanently) to a pole of some sort. 

This year we will have a little weyrling in tow so we will be driving to Atlanta and thus have a bit more room to bring stuff.  If nobody minds I would like to fashion something to carry the sign and to help make it more visible to folks in the crowd.  (This is by no means a bid to carry the banner again this year, just to make it easier for whoever does get chosen).
All I would need are the dimensions of the banner and what material it is made of (I remember it being a light weight cloth last time).  If that sounds good pass the word on to me here or tweet me on twitter (Silvanus). 
Thanks!
Matt

Volunteer, please

Please can I get an answer before prices go up on July 15th? I've been asking for months if my mom could be a volunteer at the Pern room - she was a nurses aide when she worked and she is a hard worker (being a truck driver after that) - so she would make a great volunteer. Please let me know - I need to bring her because my health has really deteriorated and I need someone around at all times.
Thanks, Valerie
