MediaWest*Con 37 -- May The Fen Be With You -- May 26-29, 2017

MediaWest*Con 37 – May 26-29, 2017

MediaWest*Con is the annual gathering of SF/Media fandom, held each Memorial Day Weekend in Lansing Michigan.

MediaWest*Con is sponsored by T’Kuhtian Press as a celebration of the diversity of SF/Media fandom, run by fans, for fans, and is staffed entirely by volunteers.  MediaWest*Con traditionally features the Art Show and Auction, Fanzine Reading Room. Fannish Videos, Masquerade, Dealers’ Room, SF/Media Fan Fund, Fan Quality Awards, a Con Suite (AKA Hospitality Suite) and a Party Suite, and many, many panels on a wide variety of topics representing many areas of interest.  Programming is determined by member input and participation; a form for suggesting topics will be included in a future Progress Report.  Programming is intended for an adult audience;  we do not censor adult themes in panel topics or in the Art Show.  We have no official guests.  The name MediaWest*Con is a service mark of MediaWest*Con.

A long time ago, from a galaxy far, far away, came a film that changed fandom as we know it forever. MediaWest*Con 37 celebrates the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, so grab your lightsaber, pack up the droids, hop in the landspeeder and May The Fen Be With You!
Once again, MediaWest*Con 37 will be held in Lansing, Michigan on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-29, 2017.

As always, programming will be determined by member input and participation. We urge you to register early, so you can participate in planning for MW*C 37.
All Attending memberships postmarked after Dec. 31, 2016 are $55 ($60 for those who want PRs mailed outside the US), until either Attending membership limits of 500 is reached or May 1, 2017, whichever comes first.  NO MEMBERSHIPS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR.  Memberships are NOT transferable.  Memberships are subject to acceptance.

Single Day Memberships will be available in advance beginning January 1, 2017. You must specify the day for the membership to be valid. Single day memberships are $30 for US residents, $35 for those who want PRs mailed outside the US.

GoFers receive a greatly discounted membership rate of $15 (as low as Supporting!) for working a minimum of 10 hours during the four days of the con.  We will try to accommodate specific scheduling requests based on the order they are received.
Supporting memberships are $15. All non-attending Art Show participants must be at least Supporting members. Supporting members will receive all Progress Reports and other membership materials, will be entitled to nominate and vote for Fan Q’s, as well as be eligible for a discount on Attending membership to next year’s con.
Apocryphal memberships are $1, for live animals, stuffed animals, or alternate identities.
 Children’s memberships are NOT available.  Babes in arms and children in direct control of parents or guardians at all times do not need memberships; if a child is old enough to be on his/her own, they need an Attending membership.
