A more involved post later, but right now, I will quote from K's e-mail.
Summary: StrowlerCon is in Woburn October 8-10, with concerts and circus stuff and all manner of merriment, and it is in danger. What we need from you right now
is for you to reserve your hotel room now
. Today. If the room block doesn't sell enough by end of the day tomorrow, big money issues. So reserve your room now
and you can work out roomshares from now, but that need is urgent.
Everything below the dotted line is from K!-------------
Hotel rooms for StrowlerCon are still available, but we desperately need you to reserve your room in the discount block by this Friday.
Seriously, we need you to book a room at the Woburn Holiday Inn within our discount block. Call them at 781-935-8760 today. STR is the group code.
There was a bug in the hotel's online reservation system, and they were turning away our guests for several months. If you or anyone you know tried to book a discount room at StrowlerCon, but were unable to do so, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) right now and we will get it fixed right away.
for more information.

StrowlerCon is even bigger and more overwhelming that StrowlerFest. We organized this event because our fans in the North East demanded it. When we committed to this event, we were expecting more than two hundred fans to sign up right away. We _need_ you to be there. Tell your friends. Talk about it online. Call your favorite radio programs and podcasts. Spread the word by whatever means you have available, because we _need_ every one of our North East fans to know it's there.
