Noreascon Four
The 62nd World Science Fiction Convention
P.O. Box 1010
Framingham, MA 01701


Noreascon Four is pleased to inform the world that the United States is now completely ours, as we have finally captured that most elusive of science fiction fans: the North Dakotan. (Okay, so we didn't capture him. His aunt bought him a membership.) (But still, we've got him now. Bwahahahaha.)

This North Dakota member (bagged by N4 committee member Geri Sullivan) means that we now have members in each of the 50 United States.

One of our secret agents recently moved to the Phillipines (shirt's on the way), and others are looking into time-share options in unrepresented Canadian provinces.

We'll be delighted to award a lovely Boston in 2004 T-shirt (we sent our new North Dakota member two shirts -- it gets cold there) and our great thanks to the first member from each of the Canadian provinces of Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador, and the Canadian territories: Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon.

And if you are the first joiner from your nation (those currently unrepresented), U.S. territory or associated state, planetary or lunar body, or stellar system, we'll send you a shirt, too (if the U.S. postal system will deliver there). Extraterrestrials, please specify number of sleeves.

Current members of Noreascon Four who choose to move to parts of the world not currently claimed represented in the convention's membership are also eligible for a shirt (but we're not paying for your moving expenses, so don't get carried away)(or do get carried away, but don't send us the bill).
