The last in the Penguicon 2012 Report saga...Chapter 4: The Blabbering can be viewed here:

Now with audio (accompanied by dark video) :) I talk about Closing Ceremonies, the Feedback Session, and overly maudlin thoughts on conventions. Also, a mention of this weekend's handoff meeting at the Hyatt, May 19th at 5pm.

It's a great cause, and a great way to get additional entries into the PC give-away drawing...oh...and NO FUCKING OKRA!
For more than 35 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank has been "nourishing communities by feeding hungry people.” Last year, Gleaners distributed 40 million pounds of emergency food to over 600 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston and Monroe counties. They alleviate hunger by providing the equivalent of 85,284 meals per day to people who otherwise cannot afford the food they need. Penguicon is pleased to support Gleaners by hosting a Food Drive this weekend at the Con. Bring any donations to Ops where you'll get special recognition for your donation. If you have any questions, feel free to email, or check out the Gleaners website at:

We might have mentioned that we had some exciting news related to the LAN party that is throwing at Penguicon this year, and here it is...MPCon is throwing a LAN party, and Penguicon is giving away a bad-ass gaming rig courtesy of MYTHLOGIC.

More info:

Hey all, I just wanted to make sure that the word got out, it would appear that there are something shy of 100 rooms available at the hotel for +Penguicon

Our room block expired at month's end, so, at this point, anybody who hasn't purchased a room is competing with the general population for them. I expect that by next weekend, there will no longer be rooms available.

Thanks...holy crap, it's April...we are almost there!!

(Also, the date just occurred to me: this is not an April Fool's joke. So, you know, there's that...)

A friend of the con shot video of the last +Penguicon ConCom meeting. Much swearing and inappropriateness took place (much by yours truly). If you have ever wanted to see how this stuff gets this seemingly endless video.

Sometime I should get the ambition to cut up a 'Greatest Hits' of our meetings and con stuff into one 10-minute long concom wrap video. Sure, that'll get done!!

Some Penguicon related information:

First, we're looking for someone to run tabletop gaming. From the ConChair:

We are in need of someone to manage non-computer gaming for
Penguicon this year, and staff for them to rely on. I know many
of you love gaming, and want to see it expand, and grow. Now is
your chance.
If you're interested in helping the chair (, whether to run the thing or to staff it. If you just have questions, please feel free to ask!

Next, this weekend we're throwing a party! If you just want to see the new space, drink our booze, eat our food, play games, chat, socialize, and relax a bit...well, come join us!
(Sorry about the name!)

Finally, if you're interested in seeing how this thing operates, Saturday we're having a ConCom Meeting* at the hotel. People start gathering at 11am, the meeting starts at noon, we often grab food afterward. If nothing else, enjoy coffee and watching the show as we try to figure out what the hell we're doing.

* I know it says "ConCom Meeting", but that doesn't mean you have to be part of the convention committee. That just means we HAVE to be there, but the more the merrier...please consider joining us :)
