Torcon will be at FilkOntario this weekend.

If you have any programming ideas for Torcon, let us know! You can submit your suggestions on line under Programming.

I am happy to announce that Torcon has received the last out standing pass-along fund from the 2000 Worldcon. Many thanks to Con Jose, MilPhil, and Chicon.

We have increased our suites at the Fairmont. For those interested in further information on suites, please contact

Deadlines coming up (March 31, 2003): Hugo Nominations, Submissions for PR #4, and the Student SF & F Essay Contest.

The hotel registration form is available on line. Hotel rooms are at 44% booked. To register on line or access the form go to Travel & Hotels.

The Hugo Nomination form is due March 31, 2003. If you wish to complete the form go to Awards & Ballots. You must have been a member (supporting or attending) of last year’s Worldcon or this year’s Worldcon to nominate. If you are not a member, you can register on line for Torcon here.

For Canadians who wish to nominate for the Auroras, please go to Awards & Ballots. Total membership as of February is 3,500.

Addendum: The deadline for joining Torcon 3 to be able to make Hugo Award nominations was January 31, 2003. You can still become a Torcon 3 member and vote for the 2003 Hugo Awards when the final voting ballot is released this spring.
