On July 18, 2013, Marty Gear, costumer, con-runner, SMOF and dirty-old-gentleman vampire, died quietly in his sleep. Shore Leave invites all of Marty friends and family (fannish or otherwise) to gather to remember this legendary member of our community. We’ll convene at 10:30 PM Saturday, or immediately following Masquerade, whichever is later. To accommodate family members and Marty’s friends from across Fandom, no badges will be checked for this event. Questions should be directed to me.
