Randy Saturday at the Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont - All you can eat Pancakes! $8 Reviews JC There was a Convention this past weekend: SVCC - year 3. Good primer for what not to do in terms of signage for WC76. Lots of celebs. Claustrophobic. Thinks next year may tap out on attendance. Candace. Had good traffic in the artists alley her book sales Adrienne. Liked Freema Agymen. David Tennant was business like for photo ops. Sunday was kind of light, which made it easier to deal. Good to see Leela Dowling again. DaveC. Lines marked with colored tape on the floor, not ropes. Getting to the WC76 table was an effort. Tagging in and out. Dealers room was Funko and arts & crafts. Project Outreach was doing good at giving out books and info on other cons. Lisa. Crowded on Saturday, but was able to make it to panels. This year they weren’t clearing out the rooms between panels. More books in the dealers room than she expected. evilKevin. Only able to come on Sunday - in BatMan 66 costumes. But changed so he could talk about WC76. Randy. There on Friday, in the WC76 booth and SF Outreach booth - which he had fun at, giving away books! Dealers room was grouped in similar items. Bradford. There all 3 days - took only 15 mins to get his reg done (15 min early helped). Diversity in SF Films was well attended, with a post panel discussion. More golden age comic sales guys then last year - and ran up his credit card... Sold 1/3 of his books! Met “Wally & the Beav” - discussed french cuisine and philosophy. DaveC Went to Seattle for Norwescon, but also went to Seattle Centre and a standing exhibit of Chihuly glass works. Amazing and astounding. Went to the 3Below to see An Evening with Groucho. Played as Groucho in his prime, jumping around and insulting people. DaveW Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty. Made the Hugo Finalists. Really good. Locked spaceship murder mystery. Homage to Agatha Christie... Highly recommended. Adrienne Read The Mcglincy Killings in Campbell California by Tobin Gilman about the May 1896 unsolved killing of the 6 adult members of the McGlincy family. Interesting local history. Bradford Impressed with Valerie Frankel’s review of his book on Amazon Beth During spring break she was unsuccessful at walking. 2 weeks ago slipped in a Taco Bell. Bruised foot and toe on the house. Went to Natural Bridges and tumbled down concrete steps face first... Short 2.5 hour visit to the ER. (JC went to the ER for a longer visit the next day) Vikas Went to Contact on Sunday. Interesting topics. 3D modeling. The bridge on Science and Religion. Cultures of the imagination - alien contact. Good conference Gerold. Program was very good. Interesting guests. New management at the Domain messed things up. Sold half of his own books. Spring was there too. 70 people in attendance (could use more). Next one may be at UCSC in the summer (in a couple years). Gayle. Splendid program. NASA, philosophers, biologists. We had an auction Meeting adjourned at: 21:25 (ish) and the rumor of the week was: You don’t know the power of the dark side.
