Rainbow Con I

Program Book and original schedule

Con Report - Saturday (4/30):

Opening ceremonies got off to a slightly late start thanks to Big Bertha, and the voting for workshop selection didn't actually finish until after Dave's concert. (Which kicked serious butt, which is what one would expect from Dave.) (So did Colleen's con suite.) We're off to a good start.

Workshop selection was done using poker chips and paper bags -- everyone got one blue chip for their choice of 90-minute workshop, and two others for their choices for 60-minute workshops. There was a pretty even split between two popular choices for the 90, so we decided to do them both in parallel (and in parallel with one of the games).
