Steamcon Street Steam activate!

Steamcon could use your help! We need a little help putting up posters around the Northwest. As an incentive, if you send us a photo of the poster with a little background, you will be entered in a drawing for concert tickets to see Rasputina at Steamcon IV!

You can download the poster from the link and print it out yourself or drop by the Wayward meetup tonight (or most Mondays) and pick up a few from Martin. Then post it somewhere with good potential like comic shops, games stores or independent bookstores. Ask for permission first of course. Take a quick pic and email it to info AT steamcon DOT org. Increase your chances of winning by posting lots! We will be giving out four tickets total! Good luck and THANKS!!!!
