I’m debating what day to head for Spokane. Officially, Sasquan starts on Wednesday, the award ceremony is Saturday, and business meetings and closing ceremony are Sunday. I see a lot of things I’m not particularly interested in attending/watching/going to, or will only need a brief walk-by to check out. I’m debating what days to attend. I’ve not heard about any planned rabid or sad puppy meetup officially or not, I’m not going with anyone at this point, and it’s been ~30 years since I’ve been to a con of any sort.
As I do not own a cell phone I’m likely not the best person to organize a puppy meeting, but if anyone knows of one and can send me an email about it, I’d appreciate it.
UPDATE: I’ll be driving over Thursday morning. Maybe go to the business meeting. Go to a few of the panels, like the 1PM mil SF thing, 2PM “Violence, Sex, and Teen Readers”, then hit Burnside’s “ken ruins space opera” panel at 8 PM.
Friday I’ll hit the Prometheus Award at 1PM, grab a bite at the lobby concession afterwords, and maybe watch the Masquerade at 8PM. Otherwise, still looking.
Saturday: I may go to the 10MA WorldCon orientation if I don’t have a pretty good feel for it all yet. Maybe I’ll see if I can sign up for the Scalzi Kaffee Klatche :-). Perhaps noon I’ll go to the “future of the economy.” Other than that, the afternoon/evening from ~2 or so on will be Hugo/Campbell award ceremony related “stuff.” Practice, meeting, reception, possibly a short podcast interview, etc. I’m sure I’ll find out more when I get there, and it won’t take ALL that time, but I’ll see what’s what when I get there.
