Airship Registration for the 2017 Steampunk Olympics
More than half a decade ago, dozens of airship crews from all across the state, the nation, and even the globe converged in Cincinnati, Ohio to compete in the first ever Steampunk Olympics and began the annual gathering known as the International Steampunk Symposium!
While some contests in the Steampunk Olympics are open to all, there are some contests that can only be entered by officially registered Airships, but that is only one of the benefits of being registered at the Symposium. This year the registration fee includes:
- Airship Banner
- 1,000 Airship Business Cards
- Discount Code for Crew & Passengers
- Opening Ceremonies Parade
- Captain’s Table Conference
- Chance to Win Weekend Tickets
Regardless of which Airship wins the Steampunk Olympics trophy, all officially registered won’t set sail to the skies empty handed.
The Airship Banner is a 2 foot by 2 foot professionally printed vinyl banner that will feature the Airship’s logo and be featured on the main stage at the Symposium. The banners will be presented to each Captain during opening ceremonies on Friday, April 28th, 2017 and placed on display for the weekend. Pole position and progress of the Steampunk Olympics will be illustrated by the shifting position of the banners over the course of the weekend. On Sunday, April 30th, 2017, during closing ceremonies each Airship will be presented with their banner to keep.
To help promote the notoriety and activities of the Airship, or group, a box of 1,000 full color glossy Business Cards will be presented to each Captain during opening ceremonies. These cards will feature the group’s artwork and information on the front, while on the back will be a small certificate demonstrating to all that the Airship is an officially registered group with the International Steampunk Symposium for 2017 to 2018.
Registered Airships also received a custom Discount Code that can be used to save money off of Symposium weekend tickets for their crew and passengers, but this will also be used to earn points for the group. Pole position at the start of the Steampunk Olympics will be determined by the Airship’s ability to recruit crew and passengers with their discount code. To help with the 2018 Steampunk Olympics, this unique discount code will be placed on all the business cards.
The captains of each officially registered Airship, or Steampunk organization, are invited to be part of opening and closing ceremonies to accept and present his or her Airship banner. Captains are also invited to an exclusive Captain’s Table conference in which Steampunk leaders from various cities will meet to network and share notes on how to make their Steampunk communities stronger.
And of course registered groups can collect their points from all the games and contests of the Steampunk Olympics in an attempt to win first place, the trophy, and four weekend badges to the 2018 International Steampunk Symposium.
