Aww...are we done already? Looks like it! A huge thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and attendees from all of us on the Norwescon 37 ConCom. We've had a blast, we hope you did too, and we'll see you again next year with George R. R. Martin, Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, and Amy Mainzer for Norwescon 38!

I just saw a giant bunny-is it Easter, or am I just recovering from last night? Either way, it's Sunday at Norwescon! Open Gaming in the Rotunda and Scheduled Gaming up at Maxi's both open at 9am. Stop by the Norwescon Robotics Fair in Grand 3 starting at 10am to discover, play with, and build real working robots! Easter egg hunts for the little ones start at 10am in Olympic 1, and author readings start at 10am in Cascade 1. You can also preregister for Norwescon 38 at the registration desks in the lobby for just $55 - the only time we offer our memberships at this low rate!

Two days down, two to go! Are any of you crazy kids awake yet? If you are, find some breakfast, then come down to the Rotunda for Open Gaming or up to Maxi's for Scheduled Gaming, both opening at 9am. Author readings start at 9:30am in Cascade 1, and panels start at 10am. Don't forget to share your weekend fun by tagging your photos and posts (on here, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+) with this year's #nwc37 hashtag!

We're approaching the end! Closing ceremonies will be at 4pm in Evergreen 3&4, followed by the Onions and Roses panel at 5pm in Evergreen 3&4. Tell us what worked or didn't work for you this year, and we'll do our best to make things even better for next year! And if you can't make the O&R panel, you can either post using the #nwconion or #nwcrose hashtags, or email us at onionsandroses@norwescon.org.

Due to a minor maintenance issue with the hotel, warning strobes will be flashing in Wing 5B (the “party wing”) for the next few hours. Nothing to be concerned about, the wing is open and parties proceeding; just consider this extra disco fever!
