Puppygate Scuppers Worldcon Match Game Plans

After a lot of thought between me and Lisa, we've decided that we're going to have to withdraw from doing Match Game SF at Worldcon this year. In an ordinary Worldcon year, even chairing the Business Meeting (and Lisa recording it) would not be a barrier to us also doing one or two shows at Worldcon; however, this is not an ordinary year. We think that the stress on both us us will be such that we simply can't afford the additional hours during the convention. I personally expect to be spending much of my nominally "off" time getting the videos from each day edited and uploaded or simply trying to rest from what is likely to be a very stressful meeting even if it goes smoothly.

I thought it best to call things off now, as Sasquan has been sending out Programming invitations, than to raise false hopes.

On the other hand, I'm told (I haven't seen it myself yet) that Westercon 68 has us down for three shows at this year's Westercon in San Diego. So expect me to put out the usual call for questions and help very soon. In particular, we have neither production assistants nor an announcer for our shows there, and both those jobs are very important for the smooth running of the game.
