Greetings from Dysprosium!
Hello, and welcome to our first email communication to Dysprosium members!
We haven’t forgotten about you, but, due to circumstances beyond our control, we’ve had a lot of trouble with the hotel booking system. We’re working with the hotel to overcome it – and we will! – but it’s meant that we’ve been holding on and holding on for a while now and, while we’re working away, you’re not seeing anything, and for that we apologise.
We’re making huge progress! Thank you to everyone who has already volunteered to present a talk, be on a panel, have a dealer’s table, or generally get stuck in. But we still need more of you to get involved, so please, if you’d like to be on programme, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to generally volunteer, please email email@example.com. And we have dealers’ tables still available, so if you’re interested, just ping firstname.lastname@example.org – we’d genuinely love to hear from you. And finally, if you want to get your stuff into the art show – a highlight of all Eastercons everywhere – contact us at email@example.com.
We’re just waiting for PR1 to be laid out by our volunteer and it’ll be made available online as a PDF. For those of you who opted for a printed version, it may be smaller, and sadly it won’t be in full colour, but you’ll be getting a copy as well, we promise! A huge thank you to Edward for doing this for us – unsung hero of our PR – plus, there will be Wayne artwork inside!
We have some fun news coming up! We were hoping to announce it sooner, but our head of comms went and got involved in a land war in Asia, or challenged a Sicilian on a matter of honour, or something like that. Anyway, she sadly failed to get the press release written and signed off. Bad head of comms – no cookie for you (she says while writing this). And possibly no more watching reruns of The Princess Bride…. But seriously, there really is some news – watch our web site and social media!
We’ve already sold around 50% of available memberships for the weekend, but we want – and need! – to sell more! So please encourage friends, family, or even complete strangers to sign up at www.dysprosium.org.uk/join . Do you want your friends to miss Jim Butcher’s first European convention appearance? Of course you don’t!
So overall we’re swans right now: we seem pretty calm and quiet, but we’re paddling like mad underneath, and we will get PR1, information on hotel bookings and more out to you as soon as we can! In the meantime, thank you so much for joining Dysprosium. We look forward to seeing you 3-6th April 2015 – if not before at various events around the country!
