ARTC Performances

"Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment" by Jonathan Strickland
There are tales that inspire us, stories that fill us with dread, yarns that cast our memories back to a time ages past . . . and then there are Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment. Join us as we take a semi-interesting journey to partially explored realms of the imagination. Find out what happens when superheroes stop being super, and start getting real.

Rory Rammer -- Space Marshal episode by Ron N. Butler: "The Phantom Menace"
The relatively peaceful spaceways of 1985 are suddenly endangered by space pirates invisible and deadly! But space piracy should be impossible -- the power requirements to overtake a spaceship, match speed and trajectories are unthinkable. Against the impossible and the unthinkable Earth sends is finest: Rory Rammer, Space Marshal; and his cadet "Skip Sagan".

"Who Shall 'Scape Whipping" -- by Kelley Swilley
What would you do with absolute power?
What would it do with you?
Kate is a smart, ambitious budding scientist whose life has one glaring imperfection: the Alpha types at her high school are driving her crazy! After the most obnoxious of these humiliates her by sabotaging her potentially prize-winning Science Fair project, she contemplates a bitter revenge. Then, as if summoned by her thoughts, a strange man appears, offering her the chance to make her darkest dreams come true with the aid of a remarkable device: "the Enlightenment Machine... It teaches people lessons." Though eager for this opportunity to dole out a few lessons to her least favorite people, Kate suspects there must be a catch in the offer.
"This is such stuff as revolutions are made of" -- but will Kate be George Washington or Robespierre?

"Brotherhood of Damn-Sassy Mutants"
Rejected by every other super-hero team, the Brotherhood of Damn Sassy Mutants has banded together to fight crime and bring peace to the world. Unfortunately every other super-hero team already has the crime and peace thing covered so it is up to the BDSM to find other amusements.
Rated PG-13 for sexual innuedo and mild perversions.


CD DISCUS!

By popular response and demand, this event is returning for SFSC 2005. Bring your favorite or unfavorite (as the case may be) CDs to fling at the target. Lots of fun and stress relief! Aim them into the small, medium, and large size holes for points, or just for fun, as you like... The same rules apply as last year. At the end, we'll count up the points and decide who gets the 'AOHELLL CD Annihilator' title for the convention.
COMMON SENSE RULES: NO FLINGING THE CD'S AT PEOPLE, PROPERTY, OR ANYWHERE OUTSIDE THE COMPETITION AREA. YOUR TOYS WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU IF YOU DO.

Sci Fi Coffee House

"There once was a trekkie named Doug,
who was lonely and wanted a hug.
He approached a Klingon female,
told her his sad tale,
to which she pinned him with great passion to the rug."

OK, yeah, that was a silly limerick, just to get your attention. This is a proposed event for saturday evening in the restaurant, around 7pm or 8pm, around coffee time. Feel free to bring your best limericks, poems, or prose, that have a sci fi / fantasy / fandom theme.
First come first served, there will be a sign up sheet for this.
Also feel free to wear your best beatnick outfit, retro, modern, or post modern, bring your wrap around shades, and prepare to snap your fingers ;)

SWAG - SWAG - SWAG!

Again this year we are looking at having a good bunch of motion picture promotional items for give away during and/or at the end of the con!

Also, there again will be many freebie tables for groups, companies, etc, to put out literature and even more swag! Those freebies of course can only be legal, no higher than PG-13 in nature (before 9pm), and non-political in nature. Feel free to put out stuff about your groups or companies, or both, on these tables.
