Seated Westercons

Report from ConZilla, the 2006 Westercon in San Diego, with Sandra Childress doing the talking for Jim Briggs, who is here but not feeling that well. Next planned big committee meeting is in January unless the San Diego Chargers are in the playoffs and are the home team. Mostly recapping the standard material from the web site. Reminded people that July 1-4, 2006 is Saturday-Tuesday. No audience questions.

Report from Gnomeward Bound, the 2007 Westercon in San Jose, with Michael Siladi in a gnome hat, along with Kathryn Daugherty. (Crowd: "Kathryn, we want the hat!" Kathryn: "No.") Simliar recap of guests, noting that the guests are from all around the Westercon region. July 6-9 (Friday-Monday). Hotel rates $99 single-to-quad (audience made happy sounds).

Tom Whitmore asked, "Will you be Triple-Double-CrossCon?" Michael: "No, We're Gnomeward Bound."

Kathryn relented and put on the purple gnome hat, briefly, but Craige Howlett says he got the picture.

Meeting descended into "gnome" puns, followed by other jokes that I decline to report in deference to the makers.
