Just In Case This afternoon, I asked Kent Bloom (Chairman of this year's Worldcon Business Meeting) if he would be willing to preside in my place at the Westercon Business Meeting on Saturday in the unlikely-but-technically-possible case of Tonopah winning the election. That's because Tonopah did not file a bid and therefore is not an "eligible bid" for ballot purposes.
I find it rather remarkable that so many people have pre-supported the bid and told us that they've voted for Tonopah that I actually find myself having to deal with the (still low-probability) chance of us actually winning the election!
Compensations I spend a lot of my time at conventions behind tables watching the convention go by in front of me. One of the nice parts of this is being able to see costumes. There are not many people in costume here, but there are a few, and we got some pictures.
Now we need to shut things down and get dinner before our Match Game SF show at 8 PM tonight. Alas, there's a non-fannish event in one of the other ballrooms, and therefore we can't bring our speakers in through the short route, but instead have to go round-the-houses and through the hotel lobby.
