Bringing Pern to Albany

Okay, I admit it, I’m a sucker.  What else would you call me after I volunteered to chair ALBACON 08.  I guess, no good deed goes unpunished.  This morning I called Anne McCaffrey and asked her to be our GoH.  She said, YES!  Assuming her health holds up.  —  Well, this meant, it was my turn to go back in the barrel.  🙂  To balance things out, I got another GoH from the LA area, Todd McCaffrey, her son.  the tentative dates, subject to locking down the hotel, is 10-12 October 2008.  I hope some of you can make it.

    I have been waiting my whole life to meet her. I hope she’s feeling up to it!
    I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I could remember, but she’s the reason I went ahead and did it.

    G’day Jennifer! — Thanx for the note. bringing Anne to one of my cons has been a long standing dream. I was so happy when she said, yes. — I believe, she likes the idea of a smaller con. — I’ve known Anne for a number of years. she is most wonderful. Having Todd join us as well is more than just icing on the cake. — Looking forward to meeting you. — The Wombat

    I’ll be there regardless, but that makes it extra special.

    Hi Melissa! — Our web site is beginning to take shape, . — We have a post about ALBACON 08 & a link to our web site on Todd McCaffrey’s page. — He really didn’t threaten to kill me, tho “insane,” “WHAT!” were some of the quieter comments. 🙂 — Working on some goodies for the folk who book rooms early. — Oh yes, Eric Flint is now coming. — The thick plottens!
