Andy is a clinical social worker at the Hamilton Center. He has held the club offices of Secretary, President, Chairman of the Board, and Sergeant at Arms. Convention offices include: (InConJunction & Starbase Indy) Conchairbeing, Security, Registration, Dealers' Room, Programming, Publicity, and Con Suite. He is currently the "Atmosphere" department for InCon, decorating the halls with various and sundry things.
Genre intrests? "Unless there's a chance of a ray gun or a spaceship, I'm probably not going to be interested. Exception to this rule is ESP stuff. I have a tendency to favor time travel, quixotic stories or those with a military flavor."
For accomplishments Andy says simply, "I've survived, so far." For goals, "Get at least one story published some time in my life." His hobbies, "Philosophical statements; Remaking society along the lines I think it should go."
Comments: "A pursuing Ferengi Assault Trader, disruptor damage to my warp drive controls, a nearby sun, and the slingshot-breakaway effect all resulted in my permanent "assignment" here on 21st Century Earth."
That explains it. We always wondered why someone like Andy would want to hang around with this crazy group.
Robin is an artist whose work has sold at many cons. She was for several years the editor of the club newsletter, The Circular of Janus.
Her interests include art, SF, fantasy and mysteries.

Past Art Show ChairMember Hancock County Arts Council. Third place ribbon at Riley Festival 2000.
Chris first attended Inconjunction in 1995, having been told by a friend that he'd enjoy it, and "conned" into being in the play that year, "The Pirates of Pendance". Chris had acted in many plays in High School, and his skills translated well to an Inconjunction Play. He has also been an extra in a few movies, including Hoosiers, Best of the Best 3, and more recently, Starship 2. Inconjunction 21 marked a change for Chris, as he directed the play that year. He thanks the writer for the play that year (Dave Henninger) and a marvelous cast for the success of the play.
Chris has attended every Incon from 95 to the Present Day, and can usually be found in any of the comic book panels, or being abused by the Reverend Randji Portajonni, Polypeptide Boy, Dr. Hugo Naugh, and various others...Chris has had his eyes poked out by the Reverend, twice, but was healed by the powers of "BoB".
Chris currently works as an Information Systems Specialist for Agri-Business Group (which is a quick way of saying that he fixes computers for a living), and loves watching movies and reading comics in his spare time.

He's been addicted to SF almost from the time he began reading.
In 1978 at MidWestCon, Dave Henninger was struck with the notion that Indianapolis was sadly deficient in the area of SF Conventions. MidWestCon was the first he had ever attended. He had no idea what he was talking about when he suggested aloud that there should be a con in Indy. Someone else there said he could never get anyone else to work on it.
Dave knew that the way to solve that problem was to gather talented people and turn them loose. With the enthusiastic support of his then girlfriend Barbara Archer the word was put out and the fist meeting of The Circle of Janus Science Fiction Club met at Barbara's house in December of 1979.
By the next meeting the members were anxious to set a date for their con. The snowball was rolling down the hill and nothing could stop it. the First InConJunction was held on July 4th weekend of 1981.
