Millenium Fallcon/ditto 12

The Millenium Fallcon/ditto 12 was a Minn-stf fallcon held jointly with a roving fanzine convention on 29–31 October 1999. Here is the original website. It was originally hosted on Karen Cooper's site.

Here's the ad for the convention from Minicon 35 Progress Report 1:

         Millenium Fallcon/ditto 12         October 29 - 31, 1999

   Seems like Minicon is just too far away, doesn't it? You can spend
Halloween weekend with many of the same folks at our fall relaxacon:
The Millenium Fallcon. We're also teaming up this year with ditto 12,
a small roving convention for fanzine fans, their friends, and trufans
of all kinds. It'll be two conventions, with a single consuite, a light
track of programming, and lots of good people, all at the Radisson
Metrodome, 615 Washington Ave SE, Minneapolis.

   Memberships are $30/person; kids' memberships are $10 for
children 13 and younger. That price includes your convention T-shirt.
Please make checks payable to ditto 12. At-the-door rates will be
$40 adult/$15 kid, so register by 15 October 1999. Mail 'em to Karen
Cooper, 101 E. Minnehaha Pkwy, Minneapolis MN, 55419. You
can call Karen with ideas, questions, comments, and gossip at (612)
823-1497, or e-mail her at {EMAIL ADDR REMOVED BY ARCHIVIST}

Note that the name of this convention is "Millenium Fallcon", not "Millennium Fallcon", much less "Millennium Falcon", of course. The additional 'l' was obviously on purpose, while the missing 'n' wasn't, but the usage was very consistent.


And the t-shirt: It was grey, printed only on the front, and it looked rather like this:

Shirt reads 'Millenium Fallcon, Ditto 12, Oct. 29-31, 1999' and has a picture of some sort of a cross between the Millenium Falcon and a duplicator. Art credit: The Beck 1999
