Hey all!

It's 2014 - has been for over two weeks, in fact! There's tons of exciting news about Esprit 2014 we wanted to share with you.

Did you know it was 25 years ago that Esprit began? It wasn't called Esprit back then (do you remember the name of the original convention in Port Angeles?) but it was the beginnings of the convention that has returned to Port Angeles for 25 years, touching and changing lives of attendees and townsfolk.

Esprit 2014 is our Silver Anniversary, and it will be bigger, better and more glam and glitz than ever! Think "High Heel Silver"! You absolutely do NOT want to miss this Esprit!

Esprit has a long and interesting history. You can read all about it in a brand-new book, "Esprit: A Silver Anniversary History", written by myself and illustrated by yes - yourselves. It's a full-colour hardbound book with 104 pages full of interesting history, beautiful photography and crazy facts about Esprit. It will be available for purchase online and in Port Angeles bookstores during and after Esprit for $63.99 plus shipping. BUT -

If you register for Esprit and attend, you can preorder the book during the registration process and pick up your SIGNED copy at Esprit for only $48.99! That's a 23% discount! I must stress that this special pricing is ONLY available if you preorder AND attend Esprit.

Speaking of registration - do it as soon as you can. This year, Esprit rates go up each month, so make sure you get your name and payment in SOON. Esprit is $440 for a single person until the end of January; after that it goes up. The rates are posted on the Esprit website.

And at last - by popular demand - you can now
