An individual has donated to Con or Bust a transferred hotel reservation for MidAmeriCon II, August 17-21, 2016, Kansas City, MO, USA. MidAmeriCon is the 2016 WorldCon. This is a reservation only — not hotel payment! — but if you are a fan of color/non-white fan and would like a reservation at the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown for a room with two double beds (currently from August 16 through August 21), please use the “request a membership” form on the Request Assistance page to claim it, first-come first-serve, by May 5, 2016.

Also, Con or Bust still has two free memberships donated by Penguicon, which must be claimed by tomorrow, April 20. Penguicon runs from April 29 – May 1st, 2016, in Southfield, MI, USA. It is a non-profit, community-run convention for open source software and hardware, science fiction, gaming, DIY, and more. Its Guests of Honor are Ann Leckie, Lingjia Tang, Jason Mars, Catherynne M. Valente, Deb Nicholson, and Ann Lemay.
