SMOFCon Day 0

I am now in Toronto, where it appears to be slightly warmer than it is in the Bay Area today (and much warmer than the -8° C it is in Fernley as I write this). The flight from San Francisco to Toronto was without incident, and the free-with-Fairmont-Presidents-Club-membership wi-fi works on multiple devices simultaneously. I do not have data roaming on my smartphone, so at best I might be able to stay online while I'm in the hotel.

To my surprise, the SMOFCon Con Suite did not appear to be open at 6 PM tonight when I checked. Maybe everyone was off at the local fannish get-together or on the pub crawl I heard was being organized. I'll check again later. It's on the same floor as my room, which is convenient. Update: When I went back at 9 PM, it had opened and people could pick up their membership materials there. I was actually lucky to find another member to point me in the direction of the Con Suite in the first place earlier today, as it was not listed anywhere in the hotel Event Calendar. But I can now say that I'm a card-carrying SMOF, as all members are issued SMOF membership cards upon registering.

While I'm planning on recording the Fannish Inquisition on Saturday night, I might not get it uploaded until I get back to the Bay Area or even back home to Fernley, and I'm not sure how much I will be online this weekend.
