I'm guessing that most of the MSP contingent have plans to be at Convivial 4 (Oct. 16-18), and some of the folks who usually make it to Penguicon have plans for ConClave 34 (Oct. 9-11)...and it's quite possible that there are people who're planning on both.

Right now my next planned con is Arisia 2010 (Jan. 15-18), but it's not completely silly to try to get to something between now and then.

Who's going to what, when, where? Philcon is probably too close to Thanksgiving for me to manage. What else am I missing?

The hotel front desk knows.

I think the key is to know about the private, pre-arranged cabs and not take a cab stand cab. IIRC, the cab stand cab costs about $50 from ORD. Unfortunately, I don't have more info than that.

Perhaps the concom would know more.

VP (which is, as you know, Shark, not a con anymore) in early October.

I'm also thinking about a trip to the west coast to coincide with World Fantasy. I don't have to buy a con membership to go to room parties, do I? :)

Hopefully I will have a job by the time Boskone rolls around, which would be the next con (and the next Doyle/Macdonald kaffeeklatsch) I would expect to see you at.

You've been to a WFC! You tell us, because I can't afford the membership but I plan to go hang out there.

I can't see why I'd need to buy one. If I were the sort of gracious fellow to invite friends new or old to my hotel room at a con, I'd be *ahem* somewhat annoyed if the convention folks thought they had a say in whom I could invite.

Perhaps it's slightly different if you're on a party floor, but I didn't see anything like that at either Austin or Saratoga Springs, or any con I can remember going to.

Conclave will reunite the Bill and Barry Show for the first time in many years. Plus, Brother Guy is also a guest. He and I have sometimes done presentations together as well.

Windycon will have the Foglios, and a steampunk theme, this year. I'm working on a talk.

We expect to attend Confusion (Detroit) and Capricon (Chicago) in 2010. Beyond that, probably Minicon (Minneapolis).

This weekend, I will be at Fantasticon in Copenhagen, and in September I hope to be at Pentacon in Dresden. November sees Novacon in Nottingham, and a convention in Oslo.

I'm doing Convivial (on the concom, hmm, need to register myself). I don't think we have any cons after that until Minicon next year. I hope we can make Fourth Street, we'll definitely make Duckon in Chicago (since I'm Fan GoH).

As you guessed, I'm planning to be at Convivial, but that's the only con I have left this year! Next year's plans: I may possibly go to Supercon (Rochester, MN), then Minicon, then 4th Street, then hopefully Farthing Party, then Convivial again. (I used to go to Convergence, but this year I decided it wasn't worth what they were charging, even at the year-in-advance rate).

If you do go to Convergence, let's see about meeting up for lunch or something while you're in town.

No cons again until Reno 2011 as far as I know. Bah.

You may refer to my TBD trip west as Calicon. I have been thinking quite a lot lately about Hemingway's quote, that Paris is a movable feast, and have decided that Paris is not alone in that.
