Westercon Business Meeting

To nobody's surprise but to the bid committee's relief, Portland's bid for the 2016 Westercon was selected to host Westercon 69. The vote count was:

Portland OR: 64
Reno NV: 2
Spuzzum BC: 1
No Preference: 2

Total Ballots: 69
Total With Preference: 67
Needed to Elect (majority): 34

The Westercon Business Meeting lasted less than ten minutes and primarily consisted of the initial presentation of Lea Rush as the newly-seated Chair of Westercon 69. I left the video uploading this afternoon and it took over two hours to upload even on the wired connection because the basic service is throttled, which is part of why I can't upload the Fannish Inquisition videos until I get home.
