PantheaCon Suite Report for 2011
I would like to thank you for your donation toward the NROOGD, New Wiccan Church, and Covenant of the Goddess suite.
I am happy to say that we once again broke even, actually we were three cents to the good, this year.
Because of heavy obligations on my part, I rented the room on Thursday evening in order to set it up in preparation for the convention without people wandering in looking for food while doing so. I actually remembered everything so the place was fully decorated and stocked. If you have any ideas for future suite decorations please contact me. We broke down the room on Monday morning early and I don’t think anyone was inconvenienced much by its closure.
During the time that it was open we hosted three receptions, two programs, two classes, and one ritual.
All of these were very successful, at least according to the people putting on the programing. Whew!!
On Sunday more programing and the “Nekked Necktie” ritual which drew about thirty participants, both members and friends willing to "get down" with us (wink wink, nudge nudge see ritual title if you are still in the dark), and was a great time for all involved. Gods only know what those crazy folks will come up with next year, but folks are beginning to eagerly look forward to this "real" time together in mirth and reverence. Good job guys.
Hot on its heels we hosted another reception for all who were interested in interfaith practice and theory with more than forty attendees. We shared stories and answered questions about how such meetings are accomplished. During the conversations we (hopefully) cleared up some misconceptions about interfaith work and laid some good foundations for future workers.
The suite costs this year included removal of the bed in the far room, and the addition of chairs, and tables for added space for meetings, panels and general conversation. It also included internet costs which were not as well used as they could have been. Can anyone in any of our groups create a Wi-fi space for next year?
The food and beverage c cost a total of $679.59
