Ah yes, please take pity on those of us not on facebook and bring that information over here!

I'm on FB, but haven't seen anything. The BwB FB page I've been following hasn't had any posts since 2015 - is that the right one?

Likely not since the FB page is very active.  This is the link:  https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=brotherhood without banners%2Fsan jose 2018

Edited.  (Your wife is still nameless, however!)

Thank you, Ser Knight! I just put in a request to join the group there. I guess I was subbed to the public BwB page here: https://www.facebook.com/bwbfanclub/ 

Man, I can't wait until next month!

You can add Arthmail to the Canadian Terrors list!  (We may be stopped at the border - you know us being Canadians and all)! 

SO looking forward to seeing you again Narcissa.  <3

I'm pretty sure I'll make it at least for the Saturday party.

For those making last-minute decisions about attending this year's Worldcon, note that the con has set up a Facebook group that is devoted solely to membership transfers and resource (i.e., hotel room) sharing.

Getting down to the last days! I'll be posting a better schedule for the party day (Saturday) once I've worked it out. I'll also be looking for volunteers to help set up and clean up the party, ice dragons to keep the booze cold, and some people who are willing to help out with general run of show or security. 

No official meet and greet this year, at least not on the program. If I can find a spare room on Friday and get it on the supplemental program I will, but we might just meet at the hotel bar because why not?

having an (un)official meet and greet at the nearest hotel bar seems more authentic than  just about anything else

Sorry, health issues have kept me from spending much time on the boards, but come hell or high water I will make it to the Con. Bringing my two adult children as well. Hope to meet some of the people whose posts I've read over the last decade or so.

Can't wait to meet you! I am sure there will be an informal meet and greet at a hotel bar on Thursday. Watch this space. Also, if we are not connected on FB, PM me your phone number.

Does anyone have any idea what the protest is that will be going on adjacent to the convention center on Saturday?  The Worldcon email didn't say what is was for, I'm just curious.

Also, I'm having flashbacks to Worldcon in Spokane and the wildfire smoke that permeated the air for a good majority of the con.  I've been seeing a lot about the wildfires in California this summer.  I know currently they are not in the San Jose area but are to the east and north.  But does anyone have any idea if there is any residual smoke or at least smoke smell traveling through the San Jose area?  Or if the winds are just not blowing it that way?
