It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Judy Gerjuoy, long-standing (one and only) chair of Darkover Grand Council. Judy, known to many as Jaelle of Armida, passed away in her sleep on the morning of March 1st of this year. She was found by her husband, Tero Heikkinen, "...lying in her bed with her eyes closed and a smile of radiant peace on her face."
We do not have much information on her funeral site and dates at this time, but we will post information as soon as we can. Please check back for more information as it comes.
All of us here will miss her greatly, and will be planning a memorial of some sort at the convention. If you have any ideas for the memorial, please post them on our facebook page.
DarkoverCon is a science fiction and fantasy convention held every year over Thanksgiving weekend in Timonium, Maryland. Because we are a small convention (roughly 500 people) you have a chance to see our guests up close and personal, meet new people, shop undisturbed, attend workshops, etc., something you can't always do at larger conventions.
This year we will be celebrating DarkoverCon 36.
Besides several full tracks of science fiction/fantasy programming, we offer assorted music programming (primarily, but not exclusively, folk), workshops where you can learn assorted arts or crafts, video programming, esoteric programing, dancing, and more. This year we are once again planning a full track of Steampunk programming. See our links for more information about our convention.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
