In case you’ve been living under a rock with no broadband, Supanova is coming to Perth on June 27-29 this year for their first ever Perth con at Claremont Showgrounds. While they might be young over here in the west, this event is going to seriously go FREAKIN’ CRAZY with fantastic international guests such as Jewel Staite (Kaylee from “Firefly” and “Serenity”) and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura from “Star Trek”), as well as anime VAs Quinton Flynn (Reno from “FF7: Advent Children, Iruka from “Naruto”), Jeff Nimoy (Wolfwood from “Trigun”) and Sean Schemmel (Goku and King Kai in “Dragonball Z”).
This isn’t even counting the numerous competitions, screenings, artwork and so much more on show. PAniC will be helping out with some of the events, as well as having our own booth. (Say “Hi!”)
Check out http://www.supanova.com.au for more details and prices.
However, they won’t be able to pull it off without our help!
What we need is for anyone who’s helped out (or thought about helping out) at a Wai-Con to sign up and make Supanova the best it can be. By helping out Supanova, you’ll in turn be helping out PAniC and promoting Wai-Con and anime in general in WA. Plus, you’ll be showing all those Eastern States guys just how we run a convention over here in the West.
So how do I do it? It’s actually really simple. Just sign up to http://volunteers.supanova.com.au and register your details. Volunteers will get
* Free souvenir t-shirt commemorating the event (conveniently doubles as a uniform!)
* Free Madman lanyard and ID badge
* Free event entry
* Free Lunch on all days of the event (and free dinner as well if you give us a hand on Friday afternoon/evening) * Warm fuzzy feelings!
Don’t worry – you’ll still have plenty of time to check out the con itself, and even say “Hey” to us at the PAniC booth. If you’re going anyway, why not save some money and help our new comrades out while you’re doing it?
It’s going to be a fantastic weekend nonetheless, so c’mon – let’s help them out!
