Volunteer and be Eligible for Prizes!

Every convention needs volunteers, and we're no different!  Please volunteer and hour or two of your time during the convention and help make it a great experience for everyone.  You may sign up at the volunteer table, or sign up early using the on-line sign-up page!

Plus, everyone who volunteers will be eligible for some cool stuff!


Dennis Lynch


The deepest voice in Iowa fandom!

This is Denny's 40th year of con-going (40/70 = 0.57 Rusties)!  He's been reading SF since the 1950s, and was surprised that Sputnik was such a big deal ("Whadya mean, this is the first one?!).

Movies became important enough to him in the 1960s for him to major in film. A long run of SF and Horror titles on campus put him in contact with other fans, who eventually started SFLIS (the Science Fiction League of Iowa Students, not the disease!), ICON, the Mindbridge Foundation and eventually. Demicon.

18 years of work in film and educational TV led to his current career as a High School computer and drafting teacher. His collection of various things has taken over 4 rooms in his house, including stuff that Forry Ackerman hadn't seen before. His wife is a retired Master Gardener; his daughter is in Costume Management at Disney World and his son is a US Marine in North Carolina. Grandpa status will arrive this summer. Current count on movies: 22,350 since 1970.


Due to unforeseen circumstances, Tadao Tomomatsu will not be able to join us this year. Dennis Lynch, the man with the deepest voice in Iowa, has graciously stepped up to the plate to take over the duties of Toastmaster.

Hat Contest!

“YOU HAT ME AT FLASH GORDON!” In keeping with Demicons of the past three years, we are once more having a special Hat Contest! The theme of this year’s contest, of course, will be all things dedicated to science fiction’s “Golden Age” (not necessarily limited to “Flash Gordon!”) and how you can best represent your idea on a hat (or some other form of headgear)! There are subjects a-plenty out there, folks; you are limited only by your imagination! Your entry will be judged as you come for your photo! Have fun, and do your best! As with prior hat contests, a rosette and a special prize will be awarded to one lucky winner!
