Worrying over BayCon
While my most pressing concern this week is finishing the progress report for Westercon, starting next week I need to start working on Match Game SF for BayCon
. This is still "on" for the BayCon Masquerade half-time and aftermath, and I met briefly with the tech team from BayCon at Sunday's meeting.( It's the Producer's job to worryCollapse )
On the good side, we have four panelists booked now, including Esther Friesner
, who I anticipate putting in seat 2, Tom Galloway (seat 1), johnnyeponymous
(5), and trinsf
(6). I've asked BayCon Programming to make "Match Game Panelist" something that program participants can sign up for. johnnyeponymous
says he has an idea for a panelist that would fill the "Charles Nelson Reilly" 3-slot as well, leaving only slot 4 to fill.
The plan calls for potential contestants to sign up at the info desk and for us to try and have a contestant briefing on the afternoon before the Masquerade. I think this will work better than random drawing from the audience, but if necessary, we'll do it that way, probably by row/seat draw rather than deal with the mechanics of signing people up.
Oh, and I had a promising-looking bid on an ECM-51 microphone on eBay when the darn seller cancelled the auction on me! Current Mood: fretful
