|bovil||09:05 am - Membership drive!|
If we can sell enough pre-supporting memberships before July 1, we have a chance to put an ad in the Nippon2007 Progress Report 3.
Seeing how we're a hoax with a uniquely California-centered joke, the idea of putting an ad in a progress report for a Japanese Worldcon has a bizarre appeal. The price is pretty good too.
Note: This is another chance for Bidcom members to have their names posted in pre-con advertising. If you weren't going to join bidcom because the advertising has already been booked, think again!

Sign me up for the Bidcom, too. Since Cheryl won't be in LA in time to help set up the party (and you know that I can stick decorations to the wall with the best of 'em) I'll gladly help out. Cheryl and Kevin both have my email address.
Sqweeeeeeeee!! You have LJ!!!
A Tiger Tyke!

Ditto! Should have known you'd be hanging with the bad crowd...

Sandra and I (being on the Denver Bidcom) will pre-oppose, and give you the check on the 30th.

Find someone who can translate the ad to Japanese and include that translation as part of the ad. This will help ensure any humor translates properly.
There may be a way to say "Join and be Fruitful" and continue it's triple meaning (or close to it).

If you're outing yourself as a hoax, should I move you down to the Hoaxes section of the Worldcon Bids

It's a vagary of language. Technically, we're seriously bidding to lose.
