Just over 50 days to go!  Woohoo!  (Also: Yikes!)  We’ve had a flurry of sign-ups in the last couple of weeks from attendees wanting to get in before the final discount ended on the membership fee. A reminder to any of you who knows someone who’s thinking of signing up, the KiScon registration cut-off is Friday August 11th.  We cannot accept new members or upgrades after this date.  This is because we need to give the hotel the final catering numbers and to allow us to make final plans.More KiScon details under the cutCollapse )

KiSCon - Kirk/Spock Slash Convention

Since I can't come to the convention, I thought I'd submit something in honor of AMOK TIME
KSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSKSK

I stand at the place of Koon-ut-kali-fee where, fifty years ago, my life changed forever because of you.

YOU were patient with my emotional outburst; my attempts to avoid the subject.

YOU were, as always, persistent, both as my commanding officer and my friend, until I finally 'opened up' and revealed the 'Thing no outworlder may know'., along with McCoy - how I miss him -

YOU risked your career to get me to Vulcan; both you, and McCoy - how I miss him - beamed down to stand with me.

YOU were so brave in accepting the challenge when T'Pring chose you as her champion.  Yes, contrary to believe ,concerning the effects of Plak Tow, I was aware of what was transpiring - your vain attempts not to kill me while putting your own life in danger.

YOU have never let me forget, down through the years, the overwhelming joy I could not contain when I saw you alive.

YOU came to me, on that wondrous night, of your own free will,  despite my objections,  the risks, and the  consequences to your being.

YOU became my Bondmate that night.

I can tell, by the depth of your love flowing through the bond, that this Pon Farr will be as passionate as the first -

All because of YOU.

Hello K/S shippers!

The countdown clock on the KiScon website is now showing under 150 days to go! That might seem like a long way off, but all con organizers will attest to the phenomenon of time contraction whereby what sounds like a whole lot of time, suddenly isn’t! It’s at this point that we start getting into the finer detail, and for at least one aspect, we’re going to need your help. More of that shortly…

Hello K/S fans!

Spring seems to be springing, slowly but surely, up here in the northern hemisphere, and there’s now just six short months to go to KiScon 2017.  It seems to be coming up fast!  We’re getting very excited – OK, let’s face it, we’ve been excited since we started planning the con!

KiScon 2017 is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the airing of Amok Time and we shall be celebrating that slashiest of episodes in different ways throughout the weekend.

We have an update for you today that contains some useful information for making your travel plans as well as getting involved in the convention!

More details under the cut!Collapse )

Just a reminder that the membership price for KiScon 1017 rises after this Saturday, October 15th! To secure your spot at the early bird rate of $130, register at kiscon.org.

If you want to spread the cost, you can also sign up for a supporting membership for $40 now, and upgrade to a full membership later. If the $40 supporting membership fee is received by this Saturday you will benefit from the lower rate when you upgrade.

We look forward to seeing you at the convention!

KiScon is returning to Los Angeles 15-17 September 2017, and membership is open! We will be celebrating 50 years since the airing of Amok Time on 15 September 1967 – that slashiest of episodes that launched a thousand fanfics!

15 September 2016 was also supposed to be the last day of our early-bird registration rate of $130, but because both of us have been travelling (to Kismet, among other things!) and forgot to send out a reminder, we’re extending the early-bird registration period by one month until 15 October 2016. After that, the rate will rise by $10.

If you can't attend, please consider buying a supporting membership for $40, which doesn’t include admission to the convention but does include the zine and DVD. If you then decide later that you want to attend the convention, you can upgrade by paying the difference to the full membership price in effect at the time you initially signed up.

You can sign up online here.

We hope to see lots of you in Los Angeles next year to celebrate 50 years of pon farr!

LLAP,

Launching KiScon 2017 in Los Angeles! [Feb. 26th, 2016|08:59 pm]

We are thrilled to announce that KiScon is returning to Los Angeles 15-17 September 2017, and membership is open! We will be celebrating 50 years since the airing of Amok Time on 15 September 1967 – that slashiest of episodes that launched a thousand fanfics!

We’ll be spending the weekend reminding ourselves why we love this fandom so much through a strong program of panels and talks, a fabulous art show and auction, and a wonderful vid show and sing-along. We’ll also be hosting the Babel Banquet on Saturday night, during which members will vote on the best costume in the cosplay contest. The emphasis is on fun, so we’ll start the con with icebreakers and games in the Opening Ceremony, and in addition to the program, we’ll have lots of quizzes, games and a caption contest with prizes for each throughout the weekend.

Membership to KiScon is $140, and includes all three days of programming, a membership pack to include the con zine and a DVD of the vid show, plus lots of other goodies and a lovely meal on Saturday night. If you book before 15 September 2016, you can get a discounted membership of just $130.

KiScon will be held at the LAX Holiday Inn where we’ve negotiated a discount room rate of $139 per night for up to four people per room. If you’re flying in, we’re just a stone’s throw from the airport. The rate is also available for three days either side of the con, so if you’re from out of town, you can spend time being a tourist! We’ve booked out all the function space, which means we’ll have complete privacy for the entire weekend!

If you can’t make the convention, please consider supporting the con. With the passing of the Great Recession, all hotels have ramped up their booking fees since we were last in the city, so while we’re working to a tight budget, every little extra in the coffers helps! Supporting Membership is $40, for which you’ll receive the convention membership pack, and the satisfaction of knowing that some of it will be donated to the con charity (to be voted on at the con), and you’re also helping a great fandom event. The wonderful thing is, if you change your mind and decide to come to the con, you can convert to the full membership at the rate when you initially supported.

Further details about KiScon and how to book the hotel is available at our website: KiScon.org.

We look forward to seeing you next year at KiScon 2017!
