I will be in Ashland, Oregon, seeing plays and doing a small town July the 4th so I will miss the first Northern California Westercon in a loooong time.

Have a room party, require Hawaiian dress, and keep em toast-ing all weekend long!

I don't know; do you attend any other SF conventions, like, say BayCon? They were promoting themselves at BayCon (not surprising, given the overlap in management). San Mateo (originally San Jose, but they had to move for hotel problems) was selected two years ago. Mind you, it has been twenty years since Westercon was last in the Bay Area. I reckon a lot of people in the Bay Area have never even heard of it.

For information, next year's Westercon is in Las Vegas, and the one after that will probably be in the Phoenix area.

The only con I attend regularly is WisCon. I don't see a lot of regional Bay Area promotion, I guess. Good to know for next year, though. Thanks!

Begin Smart Assery:

You should have one EVERY Night! Dude, party party party!

And just because I'm not gonna be there, only means you have to party that much harder to make up for it!

End Smart Assery!

Have fun!

Heeee! Good one! Maybe that's a reason not to have a party at Westercon, or Jay, are you going for some sort of record???
