  1. 2016 KC WorldCon: MidAmeriCon II Aug 17-21

    A bear there was, a bear, a bear! all black and brown, and covered with hair. The bear! The bear! Took my coonhound out to pee a few minutes ago and he went wild with baying and tugging at the leash. We walked around the corner of my house, and there was . . . a bear. I'm now on the lookout for the maiden. Must be an omen to perform the song at a MidAmeriCon filk. :-)

    If all goes well, plan is to arrive Thursday afternoon and depart noon or so on Tuesday. Looking forward to the grand event and reunion of the BWB!

    About 15 miles.

    Well, when Perrianne, Lily and I are at the Balticon NOLA party, it could provide fertile ground for one of those traditional jokes, "A doctor, a professor and a lawyer walked up to the bar . . . "

    On the train now, from Newark, NJ to Boston. Should be at the con between 2 and 3 p.m. or so.

    Marriot is day before cancellation if I recall correctly.
  7. 2016 KC WorldCon: MidAmeriCon II Aug 17-21

    I booked the Marriott since that is the only hotel that has the con discount rate for a couple days before and after the con. I plan to arrive a couple days early and leave a day or two after. Plus for the first time ever, this year I reached Marriott guest Platinum Level so will likely get an upgraded room, free breakfast, etc. :-)
  8. Boskone - Boston - Feb. 19-21, 2016

    I plan to attend.
  9. 2016 KC WorldCon: MidAmeriCon II Aug 17-21

    Thanks! For the first time ever, I made Marriott platinum level guest status for this year, so want to ensure I book that property. I've been checking the web mornings for the last few days, and did not see the 25th date. I think I'll check every day, given the "around".

    Purchased my membership last year, so I'll be there!
  11. Direwolves Baseball Game?

    Here's a photo of George and [Dire]wolf leaving the field after the presentation of the donation to the wolf preserve.  The photo is not the best, difficult to focus with the backstop netting in between.  This is in the public folder of my Dropbox account,  Hope it works:

    I grew up in Bayonne and moved to Lebanon Township in Hunterdon County, NJ some 16 or 17 years ago.  Would have used the Bayonne Bridge, but with the closure, the Skyway out, etc. Google Maps showed the Outerbridge Crossing as the best way.  
  13. Sasquan Spokane WC 2015 Attendance Headcount Thread

    I'll be there (and awake) by noon or so on Tuesday, the 18th.
  14. Direwolves Baseball Game?

    I have tickets.  I'll forgo getting anything signed, can always ask George at a con.  Any idea what time the gates open?  Given that the Bayonne Bridge is slated to be closed tomorrow as part of the reconstruction process, I'll have to loop around a bit and probably try and get there by 4;00 p.m. just in case the traffic is problematic.  Plus there are numerous notices of parking limitations due to construction.  :-(
