Spiritual support required for Loncon 3

Loncon 3 Exhibits has many plans, and quite a lot of them need your support. At Satellite 4 we’ll be making pigeons and Clute Words. But we also have another project that requires you do something more relaxing. Drink whisky.

In honour of Iain M. Banks we intend to construct an exhibit around his book Raw Spirit, and in order to do this, we need one (empty) bottle of every distillery mentioned in the book. We have secured or have promises for thirty nine, but there are still thirty left to collect.

If you can help by providing us with one of these bottles, contact exhibits@loncon3.org and bring the bottle to the Loncon3 desk at Satellite 4.

Please save any stamps that you get on envelopes and bring them along to Satellite4 and we'll send them to the RSPB.
