Of course, now that I sent out that frantic message about urgent deadlines, the hotel both extended our deadline and gave us more rooms. Whew!

So, if you are planning to come to SHareCon and have delayed getting a room, our new deadline is SEPTEMBER 30 -- this Friday.  After Sept 30 the con rates will not be in effect, and rooms--if available--can go up to $140 a night plus additional fees. Need a roommate? Let me know!

Click on the link in the middle of this page to reserve your room before Friday!

URGENT! HOTEL DEADLINE!

Just a reminder to cast your vote for the 2016 Paula Wilshe and Marian Kelly awards. We had a huge response in nominations, but voting for finalists has been slow. It's time to support your fannish creators!

Go to the awards page on the sharecon.net site to see all the nominees and their links. At the bottom of the page are links to the two surveys where you can vote for your choice in each category. You'll have to include your email address for tracking purposes. Your address will not be released or revealed. You don't have to vote in every category, and you'll be able to resume your vote if you can't complete it all at once.

Deadline for all votes is October 3 at 12:01 AM EDT. Vote!!! It's good practice for November!

September 17th, 2016

It's time to cast your vote for the winners of the 2016 Paula Wilshe Award for New Writers in SH and for the six categories in the new Marian Kelly Hall of Fame Award.

Keri and I received over 550 nominations! Charting those gave us the top ten in each category. Cyanne created an awards page on the sharecon.net site for all the nominees and their links. At the bottom of the page are links to the two surveys where you can vote for your choice in each category. You'll have to include your email address for tracking purposes. Your address will not be released or revealed. We know many people have more than one email address, but the voting is on the honor system. Since Starsky & Hutch fans are honorable people, we trust you to respect that as you have in the past. You don't have to vote in every category, and you'll be able to resume your vote if you can't complete it all at once. Deadline is October 3, 12:01 AM EDT.

Winners will be announced Saturday night, October 15, at SHareCon, and announced on line that evening. Keri, Cyanne, and I thank everyone for your enthusiastic participation.

And the nominees are...

38 MK Hall of Fame Best Writers
97 MK Best Writing
10 MK Best Artists
55 MK Best Art
12 Best Vidder
38 Best Vid

DEADLINE TO SUPPORT YOUR FAVS: SEPTEMBER 10 9 PM EST.

The latest update for nominations can be found at

http://sharecon.livejournal.com/29634.html

NOMINATORS make sure your nomination is listed and let us know if it isn't. If you're wondering why it takes us so long to get these updates done, it's because we have juggled 540 individual nominations since this started. It's a staggering response from a small, 40-year-old fandom. We thank you!

We'll only accept nominations until 9 PM Eastern Standard Time. IMPORTANT: This is your chance to support your favs because we will ONLY accept nominations ALREADY NOMINATED. Since this is the last day, a new nomination could not garner enough votes to move into the top ten.  DO NOT send anything NEW.  Send noms for Paula Wilshe to pwaward@sharecon.net. Send noms for Marian Kelly Hall of Fame to mkaward@sharecon.net.

This is what happens when you do bookkeeping in the middle of the night. You make mistakes! Fortunately, someone let me know that I'd left off not one, but TWO nominees. I was able to correct that this morning. Apologies to PW nominee Rosey Malone and MK Best Vidder nominee Samudee for leaving them off the list. And thank you to the fans who brought it to my attention. Check out our awesome list of nominees, now corrected! (And send your noms in!!!!)

The response to the Paula Wilshe and Marian Kelly Awards has been incredible, overwhelming, chaotic, vibrant, and wonderful. And far beyond anything we expected. Thank you! The latest update can be found on the SHareCon LiveJournal here:

Details on the awards...Collapse )

Since the deadline for nominations is September 10, you still have a little time to support your favorite writer, artist, or vidder, and your favorite work, by adding to their nominations. We will chose the 10 nominees with the most nominations for the final vote.

Send noms for the Paula Wilshe to pwaward@sharecon.net, and noms for the Marian Kelly to mkaward@sharecon.net. Get your nominations in!
I'm trying to help this fan see if she can come to the con. She's never been before. She doesn't drive and lives in Rehoboth Beach DE. Since this is a resort area and a small town, most of the services of public transport, what there are, run until Labor Day and then stop. Is there anyone anywhere near her area who's coming to the con who can help her get here? The public transportation options are ridiculous, predicting 16 and 17 hours of travel for a place that's only a few hours away from us.

Any suggestions would be helpful! 

SHareCon needs Vids!

Share

I intended to send this request out months ago. Yeah. That was the plan. This is now.

SHareCon has at least 2 "official" vid shows and several unofficial ones (we go late at night!). In 2014, we inaugurated a dance vid show that was a big success. Some people danced with abandon, other people were happy to watch and encourage the lunacy. We twirled, we tangoed, we even dipped. We laughed a lot. And the whole time Starsky and Hutch were providing the tunes and so many pretty pictures. So we need vids made with music you can dance to! Fast paced fun music, naughty music, funny music, whatever! If you can tap your toe it, or twirl a girl, and it's on a vid, we want it. We love premiering vids, but we also love favorite vids you've seen before. Hey, I'm buying a disco ball this year. It's happening!

Our other vid show is a sit down and watch and enjoy show, so while we love perky vids, we're also happy to get serious vids, romantic vids (it is a slash con after all), dramatic vids, any vids you might love to see on a BIG SCREEN. Oh, did I fail to mention that? We show the vids on a big screen. And it's purty! We really really love premiering vids, but we love old favs, too, and maybe that obscure vid you love that whenever you mention it, no one knows what you're talking about.

If the vid you'd like shown is online then I need an active link. I will contact the vidder and ask their permission to show the vid. But I must have the link. Please tell me if this is a dance vid or not. Don't make me guess. I'm bad at it.

If you have a vid that you'd like to premiere at the con, or you're just hoping we'll show your vid, you can ask me about what format it needs to be in and how to get it to me. We need vids in high resolution or they pixelate too badly on the big screen.

SHARECON NEEDS VIDS!!!
