The International Steampunk Symposium has a history of people hitting each other with umbrellas . . . we are talking about Umbrella Fencing!
It all started back in 2012 with the inaugural Symposium, but we quickly found that your standard umbrella was just not up to the demands of combat . . . those poor brollies were bent in almost a right angle after the contest was concluded. The sport was halted for the next two Symposiums for safety concerns, but in 2015 it returned when we partnered with the Unbreakable Umbrella company . . . and got some safety equipment.
For the last three Symposiums, possession of an Unbreakable Umbrella has generated much admiration and envy, and some of you have made the investment to purchase the finest umbrella that you will ever own, but now you have the chance to win one!
As incentive to pre-purchase your 2018 International Steampunk Symposium tickets we are holding a series of drawings for prizes. The first is a chance to win an Unbreakable Umbrella, simply by purchasing your Weekend Tickets* for the Symposium by July 31st, 2017. We will make the drawing and announce the winner live on August 5th, 2017 at the Cincinnati Steampunk Salon.
All prizes given away in our drawings will be available for collection at the 2018 Symposium; details will be provided to winners.
* Entry into the drawing applies only to Weekend Tickets in the Adult (21+) and Young Adult (18-20) categories. One day tickets do not qualify for the drawing.
