E Koma Mai (Opening Ceremonies) and The Manly Wade Wellman Award (ET)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“eh koh-moh my-ee” (means Welcome! in Hawaiian)

This is our version of opening ceremonies.

This is the time and place to decompress from the rigors of travel, meet friends old and new, and make the transition to being at the Con!

The Manly Wade Wellman Award will also be presented at this time.

Each year, ConGregate remembers contributors that we have lost from the science fiction and fantasy world. The tradition began in memory of Aaron Allston, who was well known for his love of Hawaiian shirts. We encourage everyone to wear a Hawaiian shirt on Friday, July 12.
