Well, it has been a while since our last update, so here’s the latest:
We are officially opening Paper People submissions as of today. If you can’t make it to Mysterium, but want to be there in spirit, you can come in the form of a picture. Send a picture of whatever represents you (yourself, your avatar, etc) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will print them all out and display them on a table. Submissions must be made by July 24th.
Several people have asked what Mysterium’s schedule looks like. While we wont have the complete schedule until we are closer to the convention, we have put together a rough example of what to expect. You can find that here: http://www.mysterium.net/events/schedule/
If you’ve been to Mysterium before, you know we always have all manner of nifty prizes to give out. These are generally donated by very generous crafty people in the Myst community. If you are a crafty person, and would be willing to donate one or two small items to our prize table, we would be extremely grateful. Please drop us a line at email@example.com.
Conbook & Event Submissions
We are fast approaching the deadline for conbook and event/panel submissions.
Conbook submissions close on June 5th (less than two weeks from today). We haven’t received many submissions for the conbook this year, and as such we may not have enough content to print one. If you’ve been planning to submit something but have been putting it off, please submit it soon! You can find all the details about submissions here: http://www.mysterium.net/2015/01/conbook-submissions-are-open/
Meanwhile, event submissions close on June 19th. Be sure to get them in before the deadline! You can find event submission details here: http://www.mysterium.net/events/
Registration Numbers, T-shirt Deadline, & Hotel Rooms
As of right now, we’re hovering around 65 weekend registrations! I’m extremely happy to know that we’re still drawing new people into the Mysterium family/community, and I can’t wait to meet all the new faces.
If you’re planning to attend but haven’t registered yet, remember that Early Bird registration ends on June 15th. After that point, the price of registration goes up and all T-shirt sales will be CLOSED. Registration info is here: www.mysterium.net/registration/
On a related note, when I last checked with the hotel, our room-block was around 70% full. That could easily fill up, though, so be sure to book your hotel room as soon as possible. Also, remember that our hotel room rate is only good if you book before July 7th. Hotel info is here: http://www.mysterium.net/location/
Next Time, On Mysterium:
That’s all I have for now. We plan to update the location page with more travel information soon, and I will post once that is done. As always, please feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions/comments.
