Space Oddity at MarsCon 2019!

If you're reading this, by now you probably know the drill, but in case you don't: Space Oddity Music Club & Brew Pub is a room party that occurs annually at the MarsCon science fiction convention in Bloomington, Minnesota, USA. It is operated by a group of fans who want to create a welcoming and hospitable party space for all members of the convention, but especially musicians and music lovers. At Space Oddity you'll find tasty snacks like cheese and crackers and home-baked cookies, local craft beer and homebrew, a signature cocktail called Purple Rain, cameraderie and conversation, and (perhaps most importantly) two nights of awesome music circles inviting musicians of all genres and experience levels to share their music with the con. This will be Space Oddity's 11th year of operation. That's right - this year, our party goes to 11!

Of course, it costs money to make all of this happen, so as in past years, we've turned to a crowdfunding campaign to ask for the support of our fandom community. We are proud to be partially sponsored by another local convention, Minicon (and we can tell you all about it and take your registration at the party!), but we still need to raise additional funds to cover the cost of room rental and bed removal, beer and liquor, food, and other necessities of throwing a bash for hundreds of people.

But we're not asking you to give us something for nothing. As in past years, our Space Oddity backers are eligible to earn rewards at various contribution levels:

Contribute $1 and get a thank you shout-out on our social media and on the wall of our party room.

Contribute $5 and get an exclusive "This Party Goes to 11: Space Oddity 2019" badge ribbon and a thank you.

Contribute $25 and get a custom engraved Space Oddity pint glass with a unique "goes to 11" design commemorating our 11th year of festivities, plus badge ribbon and thank you.

Contribute $50 for two pint glasses, two badge ribbons, and a thank you.

Contribute $100 and we'll stock a private stash of the snack of your choice at the party. Plus pint glass, badge ribbon, and thank you.

Contribute $150 and we'll stock a private stash of the alcoholic beverage (and mixer if needed) of your choice at the party. Plus pint glass, badge ribbon, and thank you.

Contribute $250 and Beth Kinderman will record a cover song of your choice, or write and record an original song on the topic of your choice. Plus pint glass, badge ribbon, and thank you.

This fundraiser will remain open until MarsCon begins, but I'll need to order the pint glasses by mid-February, so please contribute before Valentine's Day if you'd like to claim a reward tier that involves the glassware. Thanks for all your support and we'll see you at the con!

YOU DID IT! Your generous donations have helped us reach our goal right on time. Thanks, everyone!

The fundraiser will remain open through MarsCon in case anyone feels led to tip the party in this way, but the order for pint glasses has now been placed so I will not be able to add any more.

Thanks again for all your support!

Hi friends! Thank you so much for your support of this fundraiser! I have two announcements:

First, the deadline for ordering the pint glasses is going to be earlier than I expected. I need to have the order finalized by February 10. So please spread the word to anyone who might want a glass that they have just under two weeks left to get one.

Second, ribbons are here and they look great! Check them out:
