MuseCon (www.MuseCon.org) is a convention for tinkerers, artists,
gadgeteers, musicians, inventors, and all sorts of creative people.

convention is this year, and we’d like all our SCA friends to join us
at the beginning.
MuseCon 2010 will be held the weekend of August 6th through 8th, 2010.
MuseCon will be held at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca,
What does your MuseCon membership get you?
