Satellite 6 @ Follycon

Going to Follycon? The why not consider volunteering to help out at the Satellite 6 convention desk. We are particularly busy this year as we have been asked to run the Follycon newsletter so will be short of numbers for staffing the desk. Even if you can only spare an hour or two it would be greatly appreciated, plus you get the chance to take money off people! Please form an orderly queue!
