4p-4:45p National Kick-a-Pigeon Day Celebration
The LaffCon Planning Committee would like to apologize for neglecting this important holiday the past two years. We plan to make up for it this year with strenuous pigeon-kicking. This is the unwinding part of the con, an informal panel involving everyone at the con. If you have anything to say about Lafferty, say it here. If you want to read some Lafferty, read it now.

5pm Supper
It's not free like lunch, but many of us go out to a local restaurant for food and refreshments after the con is over. Anyone in attendance is welcome to join us.
