KiScon 2008
A Kirk/Spock Slash Convention
May 2 – 4, 2008
Los Angeles, California


We have some great raffle items lined up! I’ll have more details in upcoming progress reports.

If you plan to stay at the hotel, the deadline to reserve your room at the special KiScon reduced rate of $99.00 + tax per night is April 17, 2008. You must mention “KiScon” to receive the discount rate.

Airtel Plaza Hotel, (800) 2-Airtel or (818) 997-7676.
7277 Valjean Ave, Van Nuys, CA 91406

If you make reservations after April 17 the hotel will charge its regular room rate.

The hotel is offering KiScon attendees that same reduced rate for 3 days before and 3 days after the convention weekend. That means you can spend extra time enjoying the entire Los Angeles area, with all its popular attractions, scenery, and opportunities to shop, enjoy entertainment, and more.

I’ve been asked by some Los Angeles-area fans if day rates will be available. The answer is Yes. I will announce day rates once I have worked out some further details regarding the schedule.

I’ve been asked by local fans about the parking rates:
Local Guests: $6.00 inclusive of tax with no In & Out privileges
Overnight Guests: $9.00 inclusive of tax with In & Out privileges

Dress up - or down - but don't miss our Saturday Night Dinner! The dinner is included in your membership. The hotel offers a choice of three entrees - Chicken, Salmon or a Vegetarian selection (Penne Pasta Pomodoro). Be sure to let me know your choice when you send in your membership. If you’ve already sent in a membership, but didn’t make a dinner choice, I’ll be emailing you shortly for your selection – or feel free to email me first.

You are invited to join us for dinner in fancy dress or in costume. Perhaps you’d like to come as an Orion slave dancer, or a Romulan Commander, or even an official Starfleet commander in your dress uniform. "California Casual" is OK, too. Dress to have fun – because that’s KiScon is all about!

The KiScon “early registration” rate of $99.00 is valid all the way to April 20. If you need to pay after April 20, please email me at

KiScon 2008 will be held at the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys, California, from May 2-4, 2008.
The hotel is an $8.00 round-trip “FlyAway bus ride” from Los Angeles International Airport.

More soon!
