MarsCon - Forces of Darkness

Hey Blood Donors

Thank you for coming out

Blood Drive
by Jon Sloan - used with permission

Success - thanks USS Nokomis - thanks Red Cross!

There was no need to stop MarsCon donors from saving lives in 2021. USS Nokomis hosted a blood drive on March 6th at the Airport Hilton (3800 American Boulevard E, Minneapolis, MN, 55425) in honor of the convention.

Covid limitations prevented the Red Cross from using all the donor stations in the truck, so the goal was 20 units - 24 units of blood were collected. Huzzah!

The Red Cross is testing all donations for antibodies to COVID-19, so if you’ve had it your blood could help current COVID-19 patients. You’ll be able to see your results on the Blood Donor App after you donate. (More about antibody testing here.)

The need for blood is ongoing, Covid or not. If you missed this event you can still donate blood. Go to and search for an upcoming event. Please help us to save lives!

Thank you!

Schedule your blood donation appointment today.

The Forces of Darkness shall safely assemble in front of screens on March 12th - 14th, 2021

MarsCon is a fan-run science fiction convention for all ages held every March in the Twin Cities area. At MarsCon you’ll find panel discussions, parties, guest of honor presentations, music of many kinds, our art show, film/anime room, science room, dealers room, charity auction, and masquerade. Our comedy music track is virtually a con in itself, and attracts a nation-wide audience.
