Tonopah Westercon

A Banner Day

On Wednesday afternoon, we collected the two banners we had printed for the Tonopah Westercon Bid.

Both of the signs we have can be set up by a single person without any tools, which is often a consideration when displaying in convention center halls with restrictive labor agreements. (Tonopah's convention center has no such rules, which is one of the things that makes it attractive to us.) We're grateful to our parent corporation, SFSFC, and Worldcon 76, for sharing resources like that and letting us save a little bit on sign printing.

In addition, some of the stuff that we found during the move-out from Worldcon 76 that was about to be tossed out but that we thought was salvageable is going with us to Utah. That includes a couple of wooden easels (on which signs can stand) and a cloth carrier bag that will hold both the folded-down easels and large banner sign.
