A collection of pins made for preregistered attendees.

Between work and family life we’ve had little time to post updates, but we do have lots to announce soon, which includes more details on the dinner party, an afternoon tea, two new games, a t-shirt contest, a trivia contest, more details on our crafts parties (we’ll be having more than one of those), and two fan guest announcements (which includes a costume contest).

So there’s much more coming soon!

She’s also written stories on Star Trek (including our favorite KHAN From Into Darkness), and The Hobbit!

Christine has also published her own books in the past, and she can be found on AO3 at 221b_johnkhanlocked

A Busy Weekend!

Let’s make it FOUR days! November 19th Thru the 22nd, 2020

More Convention Updates! 

We finally have our Facebook EVENT page sorted out, it was giving us problems earlier this weekend. We also spent the weekend working on pre-convention activities…

We’re planning a team up with Arnold’s Go-Karts, that not only has go-karts but laser-tag, rock climbing, amusement rides, miniature golf, an arcade, a bowling alley, pool tables, a bar, and restaurant, all within walking distance of the hotel! Depending on the weather we do recommend using the hotel shuttle though, since it’s about a 15 minute walk.

We may have a possible tour lined up, for those fans interested in doing something different Friday morning.

Relive a fond moment…For those that watched Sherlock The Abominable Bride on the big screen. We’re also looking into a possible screening, at the local Regal, across the street from the convention hotel.

Also working on our exclusive button/pin sets! Below is a photo-shopped prototype design.

More updates include an email from Hartswood Films, they continue to stay in touch, and want to be updated on our event/projects.

We’ll have more announcements soon… keep watching!
