Balticon [Mar. 29th, 2010|02:37 pm]
Doug Ayen
So, I've decided to go to Balticon this year. After getting discouraged after the web-based reservation system said the hotel was sold out, I decided to try calling, as sometimes a person on a phone can be more flexible than a mis-programed machine. No only are hotel rooms available, but the rate for one of the days is $30 lower than the con rate. So, it looks like I'll be going.

I haven't been to a balticon since . . . well, since before they changed dates. I wonder how much the con has changed. . .

See you there?

Absolutely!

It's still a good con; one of the last. I'll be there staying Fri and Saturday nights, we should throw a party or something.

If I can get a "party floor" room I'll provide the room. How does one do that . . . don't see anything on the website.

Well, if we want to throw a party we need to check in with the party czar:

Party@balticon.org

And ask for the reservation number to be booked in the party block. Do you want to do that?

What should be the theme? And how much scotch should we bring?

Email sent last night; no reply yet.

All of it? Of course, if it's an open party, it'll have to wait until we close it . . .

I could've sworn this said Baitcon, too.

We have a room, but haven't figured out which of us are going.
