Melbourne Meet Greet plus Howard's Aussiecon Schedule

Howard is in Melbourne Australia this week and he hopes that any of you Schlockers who are Melbourne local will take time from your busy schedules to come and see him.

Schlock Meet & Greet
Thursday Sept 2, 2010
7-9 pm at Dragon Boat on the Yarra Restaurant

Cost: Whatever food or drink you order while there. No Aussiecon membership required.

Thanks to some local volunteers we have scheduled space at Dragon Boat on the Yarra restaurant for Schlockers to gather and dine together. As of this writing, the Facebook event page has ten confirmed guests. We've scheduled space for twice that number, so there is room for you. If there are too many attendees for the restaurant to seat at one table, Howard will be sure to circulate. He will also bring along his sharpie markers to sign objects and create sketches. Every time we host a Meet & Greet, we are impressed with what a kind, intelligent, and fun group Schlockers tend to be. So come meet your fellow Schlockers and make some new friends.

On a related note, I have to express my thanks to the many Australian Schlockers who inundated us with offers of help the moment we said that we would need some. I have spent lots of time corresponding with them in the last few weeks and can truly say that this trip will be a success because of their help. Thank you so much.
