Ye Olde Masquerade Photos

If you signed up for the Masquerade Photo Area, show up at the bank of pay phones across from ballroom Salon I ["eye"] between 6:00 and 6:30 PM on Sunday to get your sticker.

If you do not pick up your sticker by 6:30 PM you will not be permitted in the Photo Area. Your place will be given to the people on the Alternate list.

We expect to have two stations of Available Light which will be Daylight Balanced. Due to space considerations, we will not be having a Flash Area.

Site Selection Cliff-Hanger Continues

Official site selection voting results are embargoed until the business meeting at 10:30 on Sunday. However, scrawlings on a sticky Shiner Bock label slid under the door of our newsroom indicate a tie -- between Highmore and Minneapolis. Whether it's for the WorldCon or the NASFiC we cannot tell.
