Then catch a good nap so you can be alert and aware for the first dose of full frontal Trailer Park Mayhem. The biggest screen and sound we’ve ever had!! So much genre stuff to show and talk about; movies, TV, theme parks, the whole gamut.

FRIDAY MORNING:

Let’s Try this Kaffee Klatche Trailer Park Thing

This being our first Worldcon as presenters, we thought it might be fun to gather a small group of like-interested fen and just talk about movies for awhile. What you like, what you hate, what you’re looking forward to, what you wonder why they bothered. So let’s do a Kaffee Klatche and talk about the movies! Note you have to sign up ahead of time.

Get your media hunger satiated while we serve as afternoon mind-cleansing opening act for the Hugos. We’ll show some of the most popular trailers from Thursday as well as items we didn’t get a chance to talk about. And it’s all absolutely free!
