The Closing Ceremony at the Conpulsion does a few things. It allows us to announce the Griffies, award the Banquo, hand out prizes for competitions, give the final total raised for charity, and bring the convention to its official (if not actual) close. It is also a chance for us to say thank you to everybody who made the convention happen, from guests to committee, GM’s and especially the attendees.
New (since last year’s Conpulsion Underworld) is the Fire Sale, to be held at the closing ceremony, is a quick inverse auction where you will have the chance to purchase a shiny memento of the convention. These will be smaller lots unsuited to the charity auction, items which weren’t available for the auction and a few items obtained specifically for the Fire Sale. We anticipate these items selling for less than items at the charity auction.
