October Newsletter

Welcome to our third newsletter for Continuum 13.  While Melbourne’s continued indecision as to whether or not Summer will be gracing us with its presence this year meant we had to post-pone the Continuum picnic planned for Sunday, the committee continues con planning in all weather conditions. This month we are mulling over programming, relaunching our YouTube channel and thinking about the big genre movies still to come in 2016.

Call for Panels and Panelists
Greetings from the programming team! We’re really excited about how things are shaping up for Continuum 13’s program. It’s early days yet, but we’re well into planning and could probably give you about a day of con right now. For example, here are some of our current ideas:

Pulp SF
Melbourne’s urban legends

Space Westerns
Space Oddity: the SF of David Bowie
The Edge of the Frame: Building worlds that go beyond the visible
The Marvel Netflix Universe
Remarks: The sequel!

We’re aiming to put up a list of possible panels in mid-November — but we need your help.

Continuum’s program is about you, the members, and what you want to see and do and experience at the con. We want your input — fill in our Google Form at https://goo.gl/forms/WIpJgXgEeMJDLhaB2 with your suggestions for panels, workshops and presentations.

Or, to express interest in being on a panel, fill in the Google Form here: https://goo.gl/forms/LTX4qtXWnHglJ93z1
