MediaWest*Con 39 – May 24-27, 2019MediaWest*Con is the annual gathering of SF/Media fandom, traditionally held each Memorial Day Weekend in Lansing Michigan.
As we relaunch MediaWest*Con 39, we remember all the reboots and reimaginings of some of our favorite TV series and films. Some may be faithful to the originals, some may be completely different, and, well, some are more successful than others. Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Batman, Spiderman, Lost in Space... the list goes on. Everything old is new again! Come join us and rekindle, refresh, and rejuvenate your fannish interests!
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 programming is determined by member input and participation. 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.
Due to declining membership, MW*C 39 is scaling down the amount of function space we will be using. We will continue to have the Art Show & Auction, Dealers' Room, Costume Contest/Masquerade, Fan Quality Awards, Door Decoration Contest, Con Suite, and panel rooms with up to three simultaneous tracks.
All Attending memberships postmarked after December 31, 2018 are $55 ($60 for those who want PRs mailed outside the US), until either Attending membership limits of 500 is reached or May 1, 2019, whichever comes first. NO MEMBERSHIPS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. Memberships are NOT transferable. Memberships are subject to acceptance.
Please consider GoFering! 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, and receive some special GoFer swag as well! We will try to accommodate specific scheduling requests based on the order they are received.
Single Day Memberships will be available in advance beginning January 1, 2019. 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.
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.

IMPORTANT: Be certain to list your address including ZIP + 4 & phone number including area code.

Only the fannish name will be printed in PRs, but we will print legal names on the mailing labels unless you have a legitimate reason not to (such as personal security issues), as we have had problems with the PO not delivering to fannish names — and please remember what name you are registered under, so we can find you next year!
