The Convention offers its attendees an opportunity to obtain Tarot or other divination readings from PantheaCon Presenters. How it works: A sign-up table is set up at the Vendor Staff table located just inside the Main entrance to the Vendor Room. There will be binders with the specific times and tables outlined; the reading day is broken into 15 minute increments.
There several tables set up in the Bayshore Foyer (just outside the Vendor Room) for readings, and they are clearly marked. The advantage of this is that you will be able to schedule some readings for when the Ballroom is closed.
Please let Thalassa, firstname.lastname@example.org, know by February 6 whether you are interested in reading and on what day(s). The days you are available to read will be posted in the Convention newsletter and at the Information table.
In order to schedule your reading times, you must come to the Vendor Room on Friday (after 11:30 A.M., please) to sign up for the times you wish to read. Be aware that reading sign-ups will be taking place during the later part of the Vendor load-in on Friday, and your cooperation is appreciated in not coming to the Vendor Room prior to 11:30 A.M. The Vendor Room staff will be available to help you and answer questions. If you do not sign up on Friday we will assume you are not available to read.
Official reading hours are noted below but you are also free to schedule readings earlier and later – simply make a note on your signup sheets.
Friday – 1:30 to 5:45
Saturday – 10:00 to 6:15
Sunday – 10:00 to 6:15
Monday – 10:00 to 1:30
Due to the number of presenters interested in giving readings, you will only be permitted to sign up for a portion of each day. Please note that even if you are reading for free, you should clearly establish what sort of compensatory exchange you expect for your reading before starting that reading, and to note it on the sign-up sheets.
During the hours the Vendor Room is open, interested querents will be able to sign up for the readers and times they wish for their readings and go to the appropriate table for their reading at the time they signed up for. Please be respectful of the time of your querents and fellow readers.
In the interest of clarity, be advised that PantheaCon is only making the tables available and providing the sign-up mechanism – scheduling when you will read, doing the readings at the designated times, and negotiating compensation is entirely handled by you. Only presenters are permitted to read under the aegis of PantheaCon.
