Mythcon 49 Buddy System!

New or Returning to Mythcon?

Frodo didn’t do it alone, so neither should us Mythies! We will not be doing a full Room & Board package this year —only the Stewards' Reception Friday evening and the Sunday-night banquet— but are arranging some options for dining with fellow Mythies at nearby restaurants. One of these options includes a buddy system to pair up conference attendees who are newer to the society or to Mythcon with more seasoned Mythies.

Veteran Buddies would primarily be responsible for making sure their Newbie doesn’t dine alone (not necessarily with you, every time, just not alone), but might also attend panels with them, invite them to Bardic Circle, or peer pressure them into trying their hand at Golfimbul. Such camaraderie between fans and scholars of mythopoeia, modeled on the friendship among the Inklings themselves, is an important cornerstone of our society—and keeps Mythcon attendance and society membership up!

If interested, email Buddy Organizer Megan Abrahamson at Include your preferred method of contact for your buddy. If you are new (or new-ish) to the society, or this is your first (or first-ish) Mythcon, you can also contact Megan to ask to be paired with a veteran Mythie.
