There are two ways to participate in this year's MarsCon on March 3rd through 5th.
The USS Nokomis will host its 12th annual MarsCon, and 29th all-time, blood drive with the American Red Cross on Saturday, March 4th. The drive runs from 10:30am to 4:30pm and we need lots of blood donors. Please make your appointment at www.redcrossblood.org under the drive at the Hilton, or use the blood donor app, or ask First Officer Jane to schedule you at your chosen time. Please ask family and friends to donate, too. They don't have to be registered at the convention to come and make a donation. We'll be in the lobby greeting donors during the drive and we hope you stop by to visit. We also need a few folks to do some day-of-drive recruitment around the hotel, so please let Mary or Jane know if we can count on you. We will touch over 80 lives with units we collect on that day, and your help is most appreciated.
The other fun thing to do with us at the convention is visiting the WDF room. This group, which is made of some folks from the USS Nokomis, will be in room 1113 this year on both evenings. We hope you'll come and hang out with us. We could also use some help with set-up and take-down of the room, so contact Dawn if you can help on Friday or Sunday.
See you at the convention!
