Thank you to everyone who donated raffle baskets, items for the raffle baskets put together by the con or who simply bought raffle tickets. Thanks to you, we were able to raise $168 for HIPS. Here's what they can do with that money...

$10 – 10 PB&J sandwiches for homeless clients

$50 – one week of 24 hour crisis counseling via our hotline

$100 – gas for a weekend of overnight 11pm - 5am outreach, bringing services to those who need it most

 I just asked the hotel to open up a few more Thursday night rooms in the block as they'd notified me that our pre-arranged block was full for Thursday. If you haven't made your reservation, please get it in as soon as possible. http://sites.connexions-south.com/hotel-travel

If anyone is looking for someone to share the cost of their room, I have someone who is looking for a person with space for one more. Please contact me.

Hard to believe it.
  • Have you got your registration in?
  • Have you booked your room?
  • Have you RSVP'd to Ker that you want to go to the "Are you ... Do you ... fondue?" Dinner on Thursday night?
If you answered "no" to one of those, now is the time! Registration changes to the "At the Door" fee on July 7th.

If you are looking for a roommate, either comment below or contact Ker so she can let you know how to contact anyone else she knows is looking.

 After much deliberation and discussions with local fen, we are changing the charity for this year's ConneXions. It was suggested that more could be done by a smaller, local, charity with the amount we raise than could be done with a larger organization like Planned Parenthood.

We considered a number of options and have decided to use the portion of the proceeds of the raffle that go to charity for HIPS (
http://www.hips.org/) AND we will have yarn and a limited number of round knitting looms available (for those who like to have something to do while they are listening in panels) to make hats to be given to a local hypothermia shelter in preparation for the winter.

This is a door at our ConneXions hotel and this is a Fannish Door (from Media West)

Door                      

 Can't wait to see what you can come up with, but remember these rules: 
  • do not cover the room number
  • do not block the passageway
  • keep it g-rated as people will be walking down the halls
  • do not hurt the door, paint or surrounding wall paper, if you do, you will be responsible for the repairs.
  • the hotel is not responsible if someone does something to the door decorations.

ConneXions 2017 is going to have its own app for the schedule and for other information, this includes where dealers can be listed as Sponsors since we will not be having a dealers room so we can maximize the space we have. If you want to download the app, it is called EventsXD and is available on Google Play and ITunes. We are a private event. If you want the access code to add it to your device, please contact me at dcmf.office@gmail.com. Currently it just has the bare bones of the timing, a sponsor, and the floor plan of the event, but we will be adding more as we get closer to the con.
