It's August and that means we're only ten days away from the CIC's fourth birthday! The big party sure snuck up on us quick this year. If you haven't already, clear your schedules for the evening of Saturday, August 10. Things officially start coming together in #Wingnut on DALnet at 7:00 pm EST (4:00 pm PST and 11:00 pm GMT). At that point we begin the 60 minute count down to the big moment, but feel free to stop by earlier to informally chat with dozens of other Wing Commander fans. As usual, we'll also be giving away numerous birthday presents and door prizes to commemorate the event. In addition to the standard batch of figures, novels, games and other goodies, Joe and Paula of the Origin Museum have put together a fantastic Wing Commander IV patch display courtesy of Adam Foshko. Five of these beautiful displays will be among the items given away during the festivities.
We're already starting to see some of those old familiar faces popping up more and more in anticipation of the party. Don't hesitate to drop by #Wingnut early to get used to the interface and make sure your time syncs with ours.
Many of you have sent in updates for our Fan Directory that hasn't been updated in a while. If your update is not there or if you would like to change something, now's the time to resend your bio in. Pictures are especially welcome. If you are also working on a fan project or have something else to contribute to coincide with our birthday, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We hope each and every one of you can make it!
