Penguicon

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

Felt like things got rather late this year. So this time, early preparations for a hopefully better showing in 2013:

Know of someone that ought to get a delivery from ACME at Penguicon? Know of something that ought to get delivered? Have an idea that somehow involves an anthropomorphic ox? Well then, go have a look at this poll:

Yep, you can suggest people and things and... stuff.. for ACME. Vote early. Vote oft...well, there are multiple possibilities. Oh, you could even email ACME ( orvan_ox [at] acme [dash] delivery [dot] com ) if an LJ poll just isn't your thing.

Ribbons! [Mar. 26th, 2012|05:55 am]
Penguicon

I am attending PenguiCon this year for the second time and I had thought of making my own ribbons this time around. Sadly, I am a few days too late to make my order with the Ice Cream Team. Then it hit me: print some of my own in Atlanta and bring them up.

However, being a dunce lately due to over-schooling and over-working, I am having an attack of Teh Dumb. What type of shop do I need to go to for ribbons of my own? What specific item do I need to ask for? If someone could help me find my words, it would be greatly appreciated.

Know of someone that ought to get a delivery from ACME at Penguicon? Know of something that ought to get delivered at Penguicon? Have an idea that somehow involves an anthropomorphic ox? Or even just want to express an opinion on Cow Tales candy?

Well then, go have a look at this poll:

http://vakkotaur.livejournal.com/577468.html

Yep, you can suggest people and things and... stuff.. for ACME. You can vote for your favorite Cow Tale flavor - or suggest an addition (or replacement?). Vote early. Vote oft...well, there are multiple possibilities. Oh, you could even email ACME ( orvan_ox [at] acme [dash] delivery [dot] com ) if an LJ poll just isn't your thing.

Oh, Hello! [May. 14th, 2011|11:11 pm]
Penguicon

speedyj446
Hello, world! 

Penguicon 2012 is alive!  We are working diligently behind the scenes - right now - shoving many loaves of awesome into our penguin-oven of win. 

Here are some key points detailing our present activity:

  • Revamping the website.
    • We're very excited to be moving to a new CMS this year - and with that, we'll have a brand-spanking-new design.  We hope to roll penguicon.org into the future within the next couple weeks. 
  • Scheduling the Hand-off/wrap-up meeting! 
    • The 2012 conchair has been questioned by a huge number of people on when this will occur - do not panic, we have not forgotten - but he does not have a solid date for you yet.  The respective schedules of your future ConCom members have had difficulty coalescing into consensus, and it looks like we may all by busy until mid-June.  Tentatively mark your calendars for some time around June 18.  Do not carve it in stone! 

Trevor(the 2012 conchair) looks forward to providing you with many blog updates to come!  Right now, however, it's back to taping bricks on the gas pedal that drives this Party Bus.
