Return to MarsWith Guest of Honor
Confluence '98 will be held at the Sheraton Inn, Mars, PA, near the intersections of Interstates 79 and 76, September 4-6, which is Labor Day weekend.
To complement the panel discussions, we also have a full slate of art demos by several very accomplished artists, and entertainment items that span the spectrum from poetry readings to filk concerts to the annual farce presented by the Parallax Second Players. Never a dull moment, but if you need a break you can't go wrong by spending some time in our well-provisioned consuite chatting with guests and other members.
The Art Show Rules are now on-line.
If it seems to you that Confluence will be a little later this year than usual, you're right. Since those Baltimore Bucconeers have absconded to early August with the '98 WorldCon, we decided to snatch up Labor Day Weekend! And if that isn't good enough, we're going back to the informality, back to the spaciousness, back to the close-by eateries, and, most precious of all, back to the totally free parking of the Sheraton Inn in Mars, PA. The Sheraton is a beautiful hotel that is particularly well-suited for a science fiction convention of our size: we know you'll enjoy being there.
Adult memberships for the full weekend (Friday through Sunday) are just $25, if purchased before the pre-reg deadline of August 1st, 1998, and $35 thereafter. Children's memberships (ages 6 - 13) are $15 until August 1st, and $20 thereafter. Children 5 and under may attend free provided they are accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Membership prices for just part of the weekend are as follows:
Friday - programming starts at 4, Con Suite opens at 5, Art Show & Dealer's are open from 5 to 8 pm.
Inquiries about Dealers' Tables should be addressed to James Walton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
