March 1st Masquerade Cancelled (for Now)

Sadly, due to a lack of pre-sale tickets, our venue has decided to cancel our booking for the Masquerade this Saturday, March 1st. This is completely our of our control – and we are very unhappy. We will try this again at a later date though, so stay tuned.

We do have a steak night, and talent show coming up as well.

If you purchased a ticket for the Masquerade, please return it to the store of purchase for a full refund after Monday (March 3rd).

We are very sorry for the inconvenience – we’ll try another Masquerade soon!

Blitz 2014 Info and Other Events

Thought it was time to send out a quick update, and informational email about Blitz 2014, and some of our other events this year!

Blitz 2014 will be taking placestrong July 26th and 27th at Prairieland Park./strong
We have decided to move back to Prairieland this year to offer better lighting, space, and accessibility to our vendors, as well as localize the event area for ease of our patrons! As our numbers have grown, the Saskatoon Inn does not allow for our increase. Yay more Geeks!!

We have some amazing guests planned this year! We are very excited as this marks our 5th year of events! It’s hard to believe that just 5 years ago this began as a small event with 112 attendees at Rusty McDonald Library!!

So you can bet we have something special planned. This year to boost accessibility we will be offering a family pass, weekend pass, as well we plan to do a VIP class ticket that will include an additional night of entertainment. 

We will be holding a couple of small events leading up to blitz for fundraising, and entertainment purposes.

First off for our younger audience we will be hosting a Maid Cafe on Feb 22nd (tickets on sale Jan 26th!) at Cliff Wright Branch 11 am-5pm
$10 includes tea, coffee, and light snacks. This event will feature panels,an open mic, board games, costume contest and anime screening….and of course the vibe and quirks of a traditional maid cafe!

For our older audience!!
A 19+ Masquerade Costume Ball, March 1st at the U of S Faculty Club
This event will feature dancing, cosplay and costume fun, games, and a charity “hero” auction for the Saskatoon SPCA. Tickets on sale Feb. 1st $25 (includes light lunch/snacks).
