Bid Table and Launch Party at Norwescon 44
At long last, after years of virtual tables and Zoom parties, we were able to launch the bid in person at our bid co-chairs’ home convention, Norwescon. Here are two volunteers sitting at our bid table!
On Friday evening, five years after the bid was announced we had our first in-person bid party. The food and drink featured local ingredients and regional favorites including smoked salmon puffs, blackberry crisp and apple crisp (pictured below), and a selection of locally-produced beer, wine, and cider.
It was such a great time, we forgot to take more pictures! There are a few more from the party below. Best of all we added 136 signups to the newsletter (welcome friends!) and sold 18 supporting memberships. How much did this raise? We’re still crunching the numbers.
