One month to go for The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom!

We've "finalized" the Howard Days schedule as best we can and you can see it by clicking on the "EVENTS" tab up top. Of course, nothing is truly "final" until HD 2022 actually gets here, but we hope you can plan accordingly with what we're showing here.

Some additional information, reminders and suggestions are what we have for you now.

Please note our previous post where we ask for your help in donating items to the Silent Auction, to register as early as possible for the Banquet, postal cancellation souvenir info and The Whole Wide World showing.

As this year there are number of anniversaries in the World of REH, we note how it's been 40 years since the first Arnold Conan movie, Conan the Barbarian. This previously undetermined panel slot goes to Paul Sammon and his entertaining presentation of his involvement with both of the Arnold movies.

Another added guest is Joel Bylos, the CCO of Funcom, who will give us some up close looks at the World of Conan video games.

There will be REH gaming in the Cross Plains Public Library as well, where table-top and role playing games will be presented on a limited basis by some notables in the REH gaming industry. Information on that will be available in the Pavilion of Friday morning.

We need to remind everyone that when you make a purchase in the Gift Shop or win a bid at the Silent Auction, you must pay in cash or with a check. There are several ATM machines available in Cross Plains. (You can bring your own checkbook!)

2022 finds us at the 90th anniversary of Howard's masterpiece poem, Cimmeria. For the last several years, we've read Cimmeria in multiple languages, stanza by stanza, from Bob Howard's porch. And we will certainly continue this tradition, but this year, the poem will be read completely in each language, rather than stanza by stanza in all the languages. We will interspace each language in between other Howard poetry read in our open mic setting.

We will have more announcements and bits of information in the now few weeks until Howard Days. If you are still on the fence about coming, know that Texas is a big state and there's plenty of room. Also, everything at HD is FREE, except for a seat at the Banquet! And those seats are going fast, so be sure to register right away so you can enjoy great food, a Guest of Honor speech from Fred Malmberg and helping Project Pride with your bids at the Silent Auction!

Hope to see you in a month's time! It will be here before you know it!

Y'all come.
