Jun. 28th, 2005 @ 12:21 pm Worldcon rooms being let go
Current Mood: disappointeddisappointed
Well I had a group of about 8 people that were coming with me to interaction and one by one they all dropped off.

So I have FOUR rooms in the Glasgow Hilton (the Party Hotel) to hand over to anyone that speaks up. The rooms are in two lots of two, one booking is for August 1st to August 10th and one is for August 3rd to August 10th. I don't think the reservations can be split up or changed, so I know these are of limited interest, unless you've been dreading that long schlep from across town to the parties! This is your chance to cancel your reservations and pick up on mine!

I'll have to pay a penalty if they aren't canceled by two weeks before the con, so I'm setting a deadline of July 15th to have these put in someone else's name and on their credit cards. At that point I'll cancel them out of self preservation.

So if you're interested, speak up! It was tough getting these, and I'd rather see them go to someone else then just evaporate.

(if anyone's wondering, I won't be going, I just got a new job and the situation isn't good for taking a week off that soon and coming home and finding I still have a job. But I'll post a formal announcement of the sale of the membership in a separate post, once I figure out how much I paid for it.)

I can be reached at ferragus at (pick one: sff.net|livejournal.com|gmail.com) pretty easily.

Good luck all, have fun and drink a dram for me!

I might. I want to see if Dean would like to come, though. I am very superstitious about WFC with regard to my ongoing track record, but if I take him we may run off into couple-world. I will let you know!

I need to put my membership up for sale too. Having just gotten into a "no job" situation, it isn't a good time to be spending money on international travel (and besides, I'm trusting that I'll have a new job by then thus be unable to travel for that reason).

We'll all have to have a "not a Worldcon dammit" party.

Pick a venue and I'll help throw it!

BTW, send me a resume and I'll shop it to my local recruiter resources. yeah, you don't wanna move to AZ, but if there's a job here ...
