Does anyone else live in Alaska and interested in helping plan, organize, and participate in a SteamPunk Con?  Of course guest form the l. 48 would be welcome.

Now that SteamCon seems to be cancelled, what might it take to lure you all to an Alaska SteamPunk Convention around next October?

Drumroll please......
The Alaska Steamposium (board elected name of Con)presents:

Programming to be from 10am to 11pm (roughly)

We all know cons can be expensive, and the one drawback to this hotel is cheap food within walking distance. There are refrigerators in all the rooms, so feel free to bring your own stash, and secondly, we will have a con suite to gather and have munchies in. We also will have special pricing at the hotel restraunts. (which I cannot spell, but can negotiate with.)
ALSO: The ConCom is seeking a consuite host and hostess. Duties include organizing and making sure consuite is stocked, and organizing volunteers to man the suite. Yes, you get a free weekend pass for this volunteer job.
Website for more information and registration should be up and running by May 1.
Ladies and Gentlemen.....start your Steam Engines!!!!!!

I wish I lived in Alaska. Sad

Spent a while up in NW AK a couple of years ago. ADQ, SKK and UNK.

Would be interesting if there were a con to happen in, e.g. St. Mary's. Grin

I am not holding out much hope for St Mary's since even the very steamy little town of Skagway was way beyond most peoples' means.

That's a shame, Skagway is a lovely little place. Sad

(Also, my comment about St. Mary's was a bit of a joke Wink)

You were joking?  I would like to see SP continue to evolve from motels to adventures.  There is some really cheap con real estate here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaYlwHs2nUE

"HOTEL ALERT!!!
The concom has officially changed their hotel to the Anchorage Lofts. For anyone wishing to stay overnight, and stay with us. (Y'all know you wil find us in the bar!) The official hotel of the Steamposium is the Anchorage Lofts. While they are not offering a "special" rate, their base rate is half of what the Sheraton is. It is also within walking distance of the AK Experience Theatre.
Please, if you are making reservations, please mention the Alaska Steamposium so they learn our name, and see how fabulous we are!"
