Corflu Glitter’s two large consuites will be rockin’ almost around the clock with food and drink for all Corflu Glitter participants. Our fannish hosts and hostesses will be on hand to dispense Las Vegas Fandom’s famed hospitality from a morning breakfast spread to that “one for the road” time.
The Pre-con Kick-off
Thursday, 7:30 PM till exhaustion
The Vegrants, Las Vegas’ informal invitational Core Fandom fan club, will again sponsor the Thursday night kick-off party that has preceded each Vegas Corflu.
The rambunctious bunch has passed around the collection jar at their twice-monthly meetings for more than a year to fund the Thursday night revels that catapult fans into a weekend of fabulous fannish fun.
The Las Vegas Fandom Reunion Party
Friday, 7:30 PM until Exhaustion
More than two decades have passed since the founding of SNAFFU and, shortly thereafter, contact with Fandom outside southern Nevada. The Fandom of Good Cheer plans to host a memorable celebration.
Well-known Vegas fans of the past and present are coming to Corflu Glitter for the Las Vegas Fandom Reunion – and we want all Corfluvians to come celebrate with us.
There’ll be special Vegas-style food, a music jam in a separate, adjoining suite and a selection of the city’s foremost micro-brews.
The New York Fandom Reunion Party
Saturday, 7:30 PM until Exhaustion
Main and Smoking Consuite
New York Fandom expatriates Joyce and Arnie Katz and Ross Chamberlain have put out the call for New York fans to converge on Corflu Glitter for the first-ever New York Fandom Reunion.
You can expect taste-tempting New York food specialties, unlimited beer and soft drinks and, of course, a generous dose of Big Apple party spirit.
The Survivors Party
Sunday, 6:30 PM until Exhaustion
Main and Smoking Consuites
There’s no more trufannish way to wrap up a Corflu weekend than a good party. Corflu Glitter Chairman Joyce Katz promises a laid-back wind-down that caps a weekend of all-out fannishness.
Friday, 5:30-6:30 PM
The Meeting Room
This is the “official” opening of Corflu Glitter, even though many will start their Corflu holiday a day or two earlier.
There’ll be some zaniness, a few introductions and the traditional, random selection of Corflu Guest of Honor.
The Forman Nature Walk
Friday, 10:00 AM
Gather in the Main Consuite
Overwhelming demand has made the Friday morning nature hike with Ken Forman a fixture at Las Vegas Corflus. Corflu Glitter will be no exception – and it’s always one of the most heavily attended activities.
Ken Forman blends a high degree of knowledge of the area’s fauna and flora with an easy-going, good-humored approach that guarantees hikers a good time.
Our Chief Guide is already preparing the excursion, which will not duplicate any of his previous hikes. Some of the nature lovers will want to show up a little early to get a some grub before the walk begins.
The Corflu Glitter Banquet
Sunday, 11:30 AM-1:30 PM
Corflu membership includes a ticket to Sunday’s Banquet Brunch. There’ll be a range of breakfast and lunch entrees and side dishes, including some “healthy choices” for diet-watchers.
The banquet includes the Guest of Honor speech, the announcement of the Fan Activity Achievement Awards and the Lifetime Achievement Award, the election of the Past President of the FWA and a presentation by the prospective hosts of the 2013 Corflu.
