kevin_standlee: (Business Meeting)
This morning I was up early to help Worldcon 76 co-host the Westercon 70 Con Suite.

San Jose at Westercon 70

San Jose provided funding and additional food for the Con Suite this morning. Westercon 70 volunteers did the food prep, while those of us from the San Jose Worldcon talked about Worldcon to folks visiting the Con Suite this morning.

At Noon I headed off to chair the Westercon Business Meeting, where Lisa had already set up the camera. I'm not including the video here because I haven't had time to process and upload it. I hope to have an opportunity to do so in the next few days while traveling home. However, the only substantive business we had was receiving the initial report of the newly elected Westercon 72. There was no new Westercon Business. We barely made the (newly reduced) quorum of ten members. The meeting, including the Westercon 72 report, took six minutes.

After the meeting, Linda Deneroff helped Lisa and me tote the recording gear to the hotel room and then we went out to lunch at the Japanese restaurant conveniently located near the hotel, thus requiring very little walking in the blast-furnace heat.

I couldn't say anything about it until they officially announced by distributing their PR 0, but Lisa, Kuma Bear, and I were selected as the Fan Guests of Honor of Westercon 72 in Layton (Salt Lake City) Utah for 2019. We are very honored to have been selected to be Westercon's guests.

Incidentally, if anyone wonders how this interacts with the Utah in 2019 NASFiC bid, especially considering that I've already been FGoH of a NASFiC (2005, SeaTac): As I understand it, the plan, consistent with past Westercon/Worldcons, is for the NASFiC, should Utah win that bid, to have a separate group of Guests of Honor in addition to Westercon's guests.

After lunch, we newly-minted Westercon Guests kitted up and set forth on an expedition under the leadership of Colonel Chinstrap.

After a few hours about in costume, we changed back to "civvies" and had an early dinner at My Big Fat Greek Restaurant (which we not only like a lot, but is nearby) before getting ready for Match Game SF.
