Necon 1997:
Photographic Evidence... er, Memories

Welcome to the Camp Necon suite at Darke Palace. Necon is a small (maximum 200 people) writers' convention held annually in the Rhode Island area since 1980 -- two decades and still going strong. It's also Yvonne's favorite places to go in the summer. If you'd like to learn more about this great con, visit the Necon site for up-to-date info. Yvonne is also the Necon Webmistress/Queen, and she keeps the site as up to date as possible. It's always full of more evidence and photos. We're keeping these 1997 ones here in Darke Palace just because we want to. Click on any little image to see a big image!
