Notes found in a time
capsule. Yesterday, Becky Thompson reported
that the Seattle bid had folded in favor of San
Francisco. The explanation is that she heard it
from Hari Seldon, who also announced that J.
Michael Straczynski will be a special guest of
honor at the 2001 Worldcon in Orlando.

I-5 in 05.
A Bid for the 2005 Worldcon.
Site: Interstate 5 is a freeway
that runs from the US/Mexico border in San Diego,
through California, Oregon and Washington, and
ends at the US/Canadian border. It is about
71.745989 picoparsecs long. Since facilities on
the actual freeway are limited, we plan on using
additional nearby facilities. (Within a
picoparsec or so.) Many conventions have been
held in this area before, including the 1984 and
1996 Worldcons and the 1999 NASFiC.
So far, the bid committee is
small, consisting of a single person. But this is
only one less than the Nieuw Amsterdam in
04 bid has, so its obviously not a
problem. And we have a web page:

NIGHT FLIGHT TO OZ.
Theres rumoured to be a
flock of fans flying south at the end of the
Conucopia season. It might be a good idea for
everyone filling those few planes that go out for
a timely arrival in Melbourne to wear their
Conucopia badges in the airport and the plane,
for a nice con-on-the-flight as it goes...
Theres bound to be only so many planes and
more than enough fans to fill at least a quarter
of them, so heres your chance to do
something worthwhile in those dreary hours spent
found 3 parties all on the fourth floor. I first
found Conolulu where there was open space and
great assortment of various flavored Macadamia
nuts. It was fun roaming the room to find the
different flavors. I found the coconut butter
flavor "Great!" The liquid choice was:
you guessed it, Hawaiian Punch!
I next found the San Jose
Party: It was too crowded with furniture. Even
though there was great food, it was too close to
the entry-exit door. They had an excellent
assortment of soft liquids.
I moved on to the Austin
Powers Party. It was a hike over to it. I
didnt stay very long. It was a small room.
There was very little food, but there were mixed
drinks. The bartender had on a great outfit. And
guests were playing Twister in the hall.
The winner: Conolulu by a nut!
