Westercon Site Selection

The Westercon 69 (2016) Site Selection Ballot has been published. Portland is the only bid on the ballot, but as I hope you all know by now, even running unopposed is not a slam-dunk, and it can get complicated. Still, this Portland bid is not the same as the last one, and seems to be approaching the race differently than the previous one. They'll be at BayCon this weekend. Lisa has offered to help their bid chair with shopping. I have to be somewhat careful of how I behave around Westercon bids, because in the unlikely but more than theoretically possible case that the election ends up in the Business Meeting again, I conceivably could find myself with the casting vote as Chairman of the Westercon Business Meeting.

In other news, I continue to be full of Hay Fever. The antihistamines help somewhat, but they make me sleepy. Fortunately, I'm not driving anywhere. I really hope I have my voice back by Friday.
