FiranCON 2007 Planning Progress Report

In other news…

I secured the hotel for FiranCON 2007. Rooms went up by $10.00 this year, but the still have many of the same amenities we like, not to mention the hotel staff – particularly Tanya – are the best ever. We even got the specifications we wanted. This will be the third year in a row we have gone with them. I think I might start planning for 2008 as far in advance as possible, since hotels book up for Memorial Day weekend fairly quickly. We also have the Acropolis Restaurant secured. That makes the two big ticket items for FiranCON completed. Now, we just need to work on the budgeting aspect so we can figure out this year’s Con fee. We’re thinking it’ll be lower than last year’s fee, which should help offset some of the increased hotel costs.

So, as far as organization goes, I need to get the various coordinators put together. Off the top of my head we’ll need food coordinators, an entertainment/panels coordinator, photography coordinator, videographer coordinator and a few other things. You’d think it’d be ingrained in my head after all the organizing and prep I did for this last year. Deadlines have been set for a few things, so that helps somewhat.

Is it May yet? Yeah, I can ask that now. Come May, closer to our deadline, I won’t be asking that question. I’ll be a nervous wreck putting together the last minute details of everything. Hee.

*L* You said you were going to abuse me this year, but I might as well speak up anyway :) I'm local, and they tell me I'm enthusiastic in even the most thankless jobs, so sign me up!

I'm not local or anything, but I'm putting in my hat for abuse of any sort.

I have the file from last year's Con program saved, so will use that as a template.

I'll, as always, happily share the pictures I take at Con (and hopefully have figured out the settings so more of them are decent).

Last year, Norah, Ceylin(?) & I had fun getting chicken at KFC, so I'd happily help with that again.

Oh yeah, and helping keep Con suites clean. Even if I'm not an 'official' cleaner, I'll help with that.

Plus, anything else you need? Just grab me.
