WANTED: Reformed desperados, card sharps & hired guns, charming schoolmarms & saloon gals with hearts of gold, time displaced inventors and space travelers stuck in alien recreations of the OK Corral. By popular demand, this year we are putting the West in MediaWest*Con 28, exploring the western panhandle of the SF/Media territories. So whether you are headed for the wide open spaces or the last roundup, practicing your quickdraw with Old Redeye, looking for the Next Big Thing or just the shiny side of the Final Frontier, we say...
MediaWest*Con is the definitive 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.
