Washington D.C. Slash Bash  
Welcome, fans of Brokeback Slash! Let us gather where we can squee, cry, plot, and author-harass at will without a single odd glance. Not from each other, anyway :) We'll make memories to last us until next time. See you all in D.C.!

What: A little mini-convention for readers and writers of Brokeback Mountain fanfiction. You may be thinking, "there are so many get-togethers, why this one?" The Slash Bash has a grand olde tradition (this is the second annual!) and has a focus on fanfic so we don't have to feel like the weird kids and the geek table. Everyone from all forums and walks of life are invited. People are already coming from the U.S., Canada, and Europe!

General Schedule:

Friday Oct. 12--
  arrivals
  dinner locally near hotel
  hanging out in the common suite (use of common suite requires donation)

Saturday Oct. 13--
  breakfast @ hotel
  National Mall/Smithsonian
  movie viewing in common suite/casual dinner
  break
  clubbing

Sunday Oct. 14--
  breakfast @ hotel
  boat cruise on the C&O canal
  farewell dinner in Georgetown

Monday Oct. 15--
  breakfast @ hotel
  departures


Where: Washington, D.C.! We are staying at The Crown Plaza Silver Spring. Rooms have been blocked off at a discounted rate of $119 a night. (I also still need a another roommate!)

If you are not a member of the Ultimate Brokeback Forum, you will need to register first to view those pages. If you would rather not register there, you can also look here, but that requires you to register for the hotel's frequent stayer program. Lastly, you can just ask me. Right here is fine! :)

To get the group reduced price, you must reserve your room by 3pm September 21! Sorry for the short notice.

I also do need RSVPs for the boat cruise, so get those to me.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

It sounds like great fun but I can only attend in cyberspace.

:( I'm sorry. Are you sure??

The way things look right now, I am either going to be starting a new job and/or relocating within a week of it. :( Believe me, I would love nothing better than to attend.

Yikes, I just saw this post (through a comment you made on Luke/Noah of all things)--I didn't know this was happening! Can I come even though I'm a BBM fic reader, not a writer? I live in the Washington D.C. suburbs anyway...

Of course you can come! *is excited to meet new people*
