VIP'S, The Vogon Interdimensional Poetic Society, proudly
invites everyone and her grandmother to
- the very first Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention in
Quartercon regrets to announce that due to Norwegian alcohol
legislation, people under 18 cannot attend events where alcohol
is served. As Quartercon intends to have alcohol served on the
premises, we have thus been forced to set a minimum age for
attendance at 18 years of age.
Opening hours, Friday 15/8: 16.00 - 02.00
Yes, that's right. You, just you, now have the chance to become
historic! Imagine being in attendance at the very first
SF convention in a town! Now, we know that for some, the chance
to become part of history isn't sufficient basis on which to make the
decision of whether this particular convention is a priority. Which is why we
put up the following data, the answers to the most central questions
in any person's life:
Opening hours, Saturday 16/8: 11.00 - 02.00
Opening hours, Friday 17/8: 11.00 - 18.00
Programme starts one hour after opening on all days
Now, in spite of all the above, you may not yet have decided whether
this is really the convention for you. Maybe you worry about language?
Maybe you worry about expences? Maybe you worry about who this
Bergen, Norway person is, anyway? To answer these, and a number of other
questions, we have seen fit to create the magnificent, extensive,
fabulous, Quartercon FAQ!
