Con Suite – Help Wanted

Con Suite Seeks Rat Friends & Fan Chefs!

by Randy ClarkCON SUITE MANAGER NEEDED!  If you are interested in heading up the Con Suite team for Bubonicon 2017 (or co-managing it with a partner), please let the Con Chairs know even though the deadline is past, we’d love to know if you’re interested in helping out in the future.  We just need a short note saying you’re interested and why you want to do it, and possibly some thoughts on hours & such (whatever you want to tell us initially).  It’s not just a weekend (non-paying) job, but an adventure!  You’ll be managing a casual weekend-long “party” or “fan stop” with set hours (to be discussed), a budget, food & non-alcoholic beverages, cleaning necessities during the weekend, pre-con storage (of sodas & food), and a staff of volunteers.  Have other questions about the hospitality suite (known in fannish circles as a con suite)?  Inquire within.  Thank you…

Clubs, societies and individuals are invited to host 90-minute or two-hour blocks in our Con Suite. Hungry Fans want con snacks! Babel fish candies or peanuts, anyone? How ’bout a mad scientist bag of caramel popcorn?

We’ll supply the usual plates, napkins, sodas and chips – you supply the Special Goodies (Nothing Messy) for 40-70 people – plus whatever kitchen items you might need – as you present information about yourself or your group to anyone enjoying some hospitality (reminder, no alcohol or smoking permitted – and keep your presentation & costumes PG rated, please).

DUE TO SPACE & FANCY FURNITURE LIMITATIONS, we are asking sponsors to please only provide items such as crackers, chips, fancy cheeses, pretzels, individually packaged candies and such. You cannot provide full meals – nor anything messy with sauce. Remember, You Have A Friend In Cheeses! (The Con Suite has a 70-person capacity per fire code – we need to enforce that as much as possible.)

For more information, guidelines and reservations of blocks, please contact our Con Suite Coordinator here.

This is a fun and relaxing way to really contribute to Bubonicon, and know that your efforts are appreciated.
