As part of the Steampunk Symposium’s continuing efforts to raise money and awareness for our charity partner the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), we invite you sponsor a duck for the Symposium Rubber Duck Regatta
Presented by Emilie P Bush.
The inaugural Steampunk Symposium Rubber Duck Regatta will see the release of ducks into the hotel fountain (see below), down the waterfall, and the first duck to emerge from under the bridge is the winner!
Ducks will be available to sponsor from the NAMI table (located next to the hotel front desk) on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. For a $5 donation to NAMI, you get to pick a duck to be entered into the race, and if your duck wins on Sunday then you will win the prize! Ducks will be numbered, and NAMI will have a record of who sponsored which duck.
Emilie P Bush is a writer (author of the SteamDuck series, amongst many others), editor, and journalist; the quintessential Do-It-Yourself steampunk. Since the first Symposium in 2012, Emilie has been a special guest and became a lifetime member of the convention, but in April 2017 she also accepted the role of the Symposium’s lead MC.
