The text on the main page with the convention date and location is now clickable:
February 21–23, 2014 — Sainte Claire Hotel — San Jose, California
Clicking on the link downloads a little file of calendar information, and allows you to add Potlatch 23 to your calendar. Check it out.
It took me a while to figure out how to do this. I thought it would involve microformats, which are way cool, but in this case they are not the answer. Just create an event in your calendar app, export it, upload the .ics file to the site, and add a link. Old school, simple, and works with the latest smartphones.
Book of Honor nominations are open at the Book of Honor page.
We are extending the early registration rate through July 15th. It is only $40, a whole $5 less than the early rate for joining Potlatch 20, three years ago.
On-line registration is now available. It took a while because I had to set up a new Potlatch bank account that is properly linked to Clarion West. I also had to set up a new PayPal account. Anyway, since a lot of people prefer to join on-line, we want to give them a chance to join at the early rate. If you’ve been waiting, this is your chance. Please join before the rate goes up, because it surely will.
I also updated the off-line registration form. If you want to join by mail, the early rate is still available that way too.
On-line registration is up and running!
Please go to the registration page and become a member of Potlatch 23. You can also order banquet tickets and Potlatch t-shirts.
We are extending the early rate of $40 through July 15th so people who wanted to join on-line have a chance to do so at the early rate. This is a really good deal.
We are extending the early registration rate through May 31. It is only $40, a whole $5 less than the early rate for joining Potlatch 20, three years ago.
If you are wondering when we are going to have on-line registration, it will be soon. We were asked to set up a new Potlatch bank account at a credit union where we won’t have to pay any fees. We have the account, and are finalizing the paperwork of establishing that we are a non-profit. When that is done, we will set up a PayPal account and apply for the non-profit discount.
In the meantime, we have a P.O. Box, and we can take checks made out to “Potlatch”. This is a good way to join. PayPal’s transaction fees are very reasonable, especially with the non-profit discount, but if you send a check we don’t have to pay any fees whatsoever. We’re happy to take checks any time.
I am happy to announce that we have official approval from Clarion West to host Potlatch 23, and that we have a signed contract with the Sainte Claire Hotel. Now all we need is you!
