Fan tables here at Westercon are over where the food service was during BayCon, which is a much more high-traffic location and more visible. At BayCon, I think a lot of people didn't even know the Fan Tables were there, because unless you were going to a panel in the Convene Ballroom, you'd never see us.
Lisa has built a flag stand from which we are flying a Canadian flag. Even as we were setting up the table, we had people who wanted to buy pre-supports and Bon Amis (friends of the bid). I'm astounded to say that we've sold six Bon Amis today!
I am also so relieved that I can give the Worldcon bid spiel without having to explain ever single term I use. I don't have to explain what a Worldcon is, or how bidding works, or anything like that. It's such a relief.
Meanwhile, I've left a message with the hotel liaison asking if anyone is booked for Tuesday night into the room in which we're holding parties Sunday and Monday nights. If not, I may ask if we can just stay in that suite (and pay the upgrade) rather than moving back to a standard room. It's just about worth the extra $100 to avoiding having to move an additional time during the con.
I saw the Australia bid setting up their party for tonight. They're in one of the rotunda suites, which are okay, but not as good as the lofts. It's a pity, actually -- 3007, the loft suite we're using tomorrow and Monday, is available tonight, and it probably would have been a better fit for them if everything had connected better. Still, the rotundas are nice rooms; it's just that the floor space is split up by a partition between the parlor and bedroom
