Hi! I just Joined!
n Saturday IF will give out it's second Fandom Hall of Fame Presentation to Richard "Grass" Green's widow Janice, hopefully will have some art of his to show.
Turtel who is running the show will also be starting the big push to get folks out. He wrote me "The word has been out in several medias all along. But invitation postcards by the thousands will be circulated, a spot on CAN TV 19 on the 23rd at 7pm or 7:30pm.
Quite a stew of energies to attract a large crowd. Even free admission with any worn costume and a 贄.00 prize for the best costume. Cosplay, fans, students, collectors, and creative folks. I like our chances."
