Quick Reference for Online Signup for Kaffee Klatches

For many years, conventions have used signup sheets at Information for items like Kaffee Klatches, Literary Beers and some workshops. Now that most people have computers, we’ve moved signups more online.

We have signups for items that need to limit the number of attendees. People with attending Sasquan members can sign up online for:

Kaffee Klatches Literary Beers Pub Crawls Some Costume Workshops (Make Your Own Dragon Wings/Make Your Own Fairy Wings) SpoCon Presents: Pitch Sessions SpoCon Presents: Round Robin Sessions Gaming: Star Fleet Battle Miniature Sanctioned Tournament But even if you don’t have Web access, there will be some slots available for at-con signup, and the signup sheets will still be at Information (Hall D/Riverside Lobby) on the day before the item.

Before you register for items online, have handy:

The name you used when you registered for Sasquan. The E-mail address you used when you registered for Sasquan. Your Sasquan membership number. Remember, since these items are only for people who can attend Sasquan, you must have an attending membership to sign up for an item.

This information is available in the mail you received on 7/28 titled “Hugo Award Voting Closes THIS Friday, July 31 at 11:59 pm PDT!” You may not need this information to register, but it helps to have it available in case you do, particularly if you regularly use multiple versions of your name or multiple E-mail addresses.

You will receive an E-mail when you successfully sign up for an item or when you remove yourself from an item.

The software can prevent you from signing up for multiple items at the same time. However, it doesn’t prevent you from signing up for many items per day. Please be fair to other members and do not sign up for or wait list for more than 2 Kaffee Klatches, Literary Beers or Pub Crawls per day (8 total for the con). Management will review signups periodically and if you’ve signed up or waitlisted for more than 2 of these per day, we will delete your excess signups. You still may be able to sign up for items in person. The signup sheets will be at Information the day before the item (Thursday signup sheets will be out on Wednesday and so on).

Online signups will be available until the day before the items occur. Online signup for Thursday will be available until 6am on Wednesday, online signup for Friday will be available until 6am on Thursday and so on.

Kids cannot sign up for Kaffee Klatches or Literary Beers. Teens with YA memberships may sign up for Kaffee Klatches but not for Literary Beers. Kids aged 10 and up may signup for the Battle Fleet Miniature Tournement.
