“Come one, come all, for The Game is A’Paw! Nefarious deeds carried out with such great speeds leads us to question whose greeds these deeds feeds? Tarry not on the question for that needn’t be your obsession if rooting out mysteries is not your profession. While my assumption may be premature, I take it that you are here to savour the sights and sounds instead of following the spoor? Then lets us cheer to the year under this mysterious veneer, and I welcome you in a manner most sincere.” — Tearlach Yeolmes, Private Detective.
Welcome back everyone, and especially welcome to everyone who is interested in our convention! The convention simply wouldn’t be the same without you. As you may have guessed, our theme this year is “The Game is A’Paw!” This riff on the phrase judiciously employed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s private detective Sherlock Holmes is central to the artwork and stories that you’ll find in our convention booklet this year, so as intrepid private detectives yourselves, it is time to whip out your magnifying glasses and practice your “ah,” “indeed,” and “elementary!”
We literally could not host this awesome event without the judicious aid of a host of mysterious strangers. Much akin to the detective novelist’s need for mysterious supporting characters, we need volunteers to help us bring our work to life! Without you, we are a team of less than twenty, a paltry percentage of what is needed to run all of the convention departments. When we say we need your help, we are not pulling the wool over your eyes: we actually need you and would love to have you.
If you’re interested in volunteering or want to see what you get out of it, please go HERE!
PAWCon will be donning our space suits and attending Space Camp tomorrow night! Come enjoy a beer with the board and executive staff as we enjoy the evening’s festivities and discuss ideas for this year’s convention.
Additionally, we are very excited to announce a special Pre-Registration deal for Space Camp attendees only! For just $35 ($5 off regular price of $40), you can join us for a weekend of mystery at the San Jose DoubleTree in November. All pre-regs also come with a FREE drink ticket so we can toast to you!
