Good news everyone,

Scroll down for the latest information on Swancon 40’s trading days, volunteering at Swancon 40, and Genghiscon.

Trading Day, Fundraising Auction, and Swapmeet information
Expressions of interest for trading in the Traders Room at Swancon are now officially open. Please email any queries about operating a trader shopfront at Swancon to

Additionally, we can announce that this year instead of the usual auction Swancon 2015 is trying something new. Given the way the Auction has been growing over the last few years, we are separating out the needs of the Auction from the needs of our community, and splitting the Auction into two. The Auction will now be a Fundraising Auction. If you wish to donate items for the Fundraising Auction, all proceeds will be going to the Fan Fund or Convention of your choice.

If you have items you would like to sell, there will be a Fan Swapmeet to be held on the morning of Sunday, 6th of April. The Swapmeet will be open for 3 hours (9am to 12 noon).

More information on the Trading Day, Fundraising Auction and Swapmeet is available on the Swancon website under TRADING.

Call for Volunteers
Ever wanted to help? We have heaps of ways we need you! Do you have time before the convention? Or time during the convention? We need people to help with front desk, programming, golphering during the convention, as well as event organisation. Volunteering for a non-profit organisation also looks great on your resume! If you are interested in helping out before the convention or during the convention, more information is available on the Swancon website under VOLUNTEERING.

Genghiscon starts today
And finally, a reminder that Genghiscon, Perth’s student-run SF and gaming convention, starts today at 2pm at Trinity Residential College 230 Hampden Road, Crawley (Opposite the University of Western Australia). For more information, go to the Genghiscon website.

Best wishes,

The Committee, Swancon 40 | 2015
