Getting Ready for Noreascon


I’ll be helping out at Noreascon IV. If you’re looking for me, the best place to find me as at the FANAC exhibit on the Concourse (Hall C of the Hynes). And I’m sure I’ll be stopping by the Mended Drum from time to time.

I’ll also be doing a few program items:

Thursday 6:00pm Tour of the Village — I’ll lead a group of attendees on a tour of the convention. Special emphasis on First Night Activities. Meet at the Goddard Rocket replica, in the center of Hall C – no advance sign-up required.

Friday 10:00am Welcome to the SF Community — with Gay Haldeman, Mary Kay Kare and Roger Sims (An orientation seminar on the background of the World Science Fiction Convention and tips on making the most of the con.)

Saturday 1:00pm Exhibit Hall Docent Tour — I’ll lead a group of attendees on a detailed tour of Hall C and the other exhibits. Meet at the Goddard Rocket replica, in the center of Hall C – no advance sign-up required.

Saturday 4:00pm BAD Con Advice for Newbies — with David Levine, Sandra McDonald and Priscilla Olson (Please – bring a sense of irony! Fannish etiquette, with a twist…..)

Saturday 5:00pm Tour of the Village — I’ll lead a group of attendees on a tour of the convention. Meet at the Goddard Rocket replica, in the center of Hall C – no advance sign-up required.

Sunday 3:00pm LOTR: Looking Back at the Films — with MaryAnn Johanson and Kathy Morrow (The film series is over, the dust has settled, was it all worth it? A look back, and assessment of the series as a whole.) [[Visit The One Ring to meet lots of other LOTR fans, and take The Ultimate Lord of the Rings test to just see how geeky you really are! I scored 75, making me “Elrond’s Advisor.”]]

My insomnia has come back with a vengence recently. I hope to get some sleep before I go back to Boston in a few weeks.
