Bought my membership at the LoneStarCon table... so I will be there. Still trying to decide whether to get a dealer table. We have family connections in town so hoping to make a road-trip of it and have son and/or daughter-in-law to spell at table. Grandkids will be 2 and 4 by then... maybe old enough to tag along for some things. Certainly old enough for costumes.

On Sunday Sept 1st I will be giving people free chances to reach into the interdimensional coin bag to choose a random coin. "Choose and be known by your choice!" This time around we had Hobbit lads and lasses, riders of Rohan, bannermen of the Winterfell, supporters of Robert Baratheon, minions of the Dark Lord, reavers of the Iron Islands, knights of King Arthur's round table, Faceless Men, remnants of Leif Eiricsson's lost Vinland colony, Dothraki concubines, men of Dale, and subjects of Aegon Targaryen. Who knows what there will be next time!

I'll be there too! Mandy is my DD :-)

I'm honestly not sure what that means, but it is accurate as far as what my initial reaction of what it meant was.

All I know is, I already can't freaking WAIT. I was so sad to miss this year's worldcon, I'm ready to drunkenly videotape furry hunting for the entertainment of the BWB.

Bought my membership at Chicon and Arlington Bill is already scheming for next year. Barring any disaster type thing we'll be there.

Well, I got impatient (Who, me? Never!) and bought our memberships! Now, can we fast forward to next August?

Mandy - I meant designated driver (perhaps walker would be more appropriate given hotel locations)

Where can I buy the membership? I'm willing to pull the trigger on this one since it's so close to home.

so very tempting...

This might be a good place to repeat something I recently told another BWBer who was considering attending next year's WorldCon: Resisting temptation is highly over-rated. Honestly, what has it ever gotten anyone?!

Having said that, I wouldn't want to pressure anyone, as I know WorldCons are expensive. But for anyone who has the means, and is merely on the fence about it, I say embrace the temptation, you won't regret it!

The riverwalk in San Antonio is lovely. The hills to the north and west of San Antonio are also beautiful. I'm tempted to rent a car and go for a drive one day of the con because it's such a shame to miss them. San Antonio is really worth the trip.

Don't forget that it is always possible to transfer your membership to someone else, if you need to. I can't speak for everyone, but I've always been able to re-sell at the price I paid, so I've never lost money. I am sure this was helped by always being able to offer at an early bird price, even close to convention time! So if you can afford it, and you're just in that "well, maybe..." mode, I say buy buy buy!

I will absolutely be your designated walker. Which means, if we both lean on each other then we will probably both fall at least once, but we will be together and eventually make it back to the hotel, which is all that really matters. i have broken 4 pairs of flip flops this summer from drunken stumbling/walking around, whether it be after being in the pool or not. So I will bring extra flip flops to the con. HA! Can't wait!!!

Sorry to double-post, but did you see that the Convention is going to be ON THE RIVERWALK?? This is going to be pretty freaking cool. The two hotels are both on the Riverwalk, and one is attached to the mall. I was hoping the convention would be close to the riverwalk since it's prretty much the only attraction San Antonio has that I give a damn about, but to be right on it is AWESOME.

For those of you who have never been to San Antonio, the Riverwalk has every kind of restaurant you could want, TONS of shopping, and it is fun to try to not fall into the water when you are drunk. This should be a blast.

Check out this website. Of COURSE you have to talk a boat tour. They're actually pretty cool.

(bold mine)

What could possibly go wrong?!?

Although, we were close to the river in Chicago, and none of us fell in, so maybe our luck is improving. Or our coordination. Lol!
