It’s just six weeks to go before Continuum 7: Changing Consciousness!
We’re getting very excited as things are finalised – the program is looking particularly spectacular. Make sure you look out for the Great Debate making a return on Friday evening, our Changing Consciousness Maskobalo on Saturday evening and all manner of presentations, panels and pretty things.
Don’t forget to let your friends know that Friday evening is completely free! This is a great chance to introduce someone to conventions who has never been before. We promise a terrific night’s entertainment.
The Chronos Awards for 2010 will also be presented on Friday evening. There are just two weeks left to vote for the best in Victorian Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. All members (including supporting members) of Continuum 7 are eligible to vote, or voting memberships can be purchased for just $5. All the information can be found here: http://continuum.org.au/chronos-awards/
But six weeks is too long to wait! I hear you say. That’s OK, we’ve got another movie outing planned for Sunday the 8th May.
We’re seeing Source Code starring the delightful Jake Gyllenhaal (can you tell some people on the committee are quite taken with him?), which brilliantly ties in with our Changing Consciousness theme. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet take a peek here: http://www.enterthesourcecode.com/
Looks intriguing right?
Join us then!
When: Sunday 8th May, mid-afternoon (session time to be confirmed on 4th May)
Where: Hoyts, Level 3, Melbourne Central
RSVP by sending an email to email@example.com by 11am on 8th May with Source Code in the subject line and include your name, mobile number and how many tickets you’d like. Payment is in cash on the day.
Catch up after for a debrief with drinks and eatables at The Groove Train (next to Hoyts box office).
We’re also going to make time to see X-Men First Class on the Sunday before the convention. More details about that one to come.

Did I mention the Maskobalo? Well it’s time to start thinking about costumes!
Discover the portal to another world beneath the streets of Melbourne. A world of carnivales, masked figures and mysterious characters. You will find doorways to your deepest dreams, whether you travel by TARDIS, DeLorean or Heart of Gold. You may find yourself in Fantastica, Oz or Wonderland; London Below or Un Lun Dun; the Chocolate Factory, Never Never Land, Narnia or the Imaginarium.
Change your identity behind a simple mask, or go all out with the tulle and taffeta at Continuum’s Changing Consciousness Maskobalo, Saturday June 11, 2011.
Photo op and costume awards at 8pm, dancing from 8.30pm
Free for Continuum 7 members or $15 cash at the door.
Have you heard about Conquilt? Ninety-two signatures collected at Worldcon 68/Aussieon 4 on an art quilt that will be auctioned on ebay from the 10th June. All the details and photos can be seen at http://continuum.org.au/conquilt
Don’t forget you can keep up with the latest Continuum news on Twitter @continuum_con and on Facebook
Have a wonderful month of May everyone,
The Continuum 7 Commmittee.
