Chair Update

April 29, 2003
Torcon will happen as expected August 28th to September 1st, 2003 at
the Royal York Hotel and Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The SARS
virus has been over played and poorly reported in the media. The virus
peaked in Toronto in March and the number of cases has been steadily
decreasing. The WHO travel advisory is being contested at all levels
of government. I pleased to report that our statistics have not
reflected any impact from SARS. I take this as meaning fans are better
informed and know that it will not be a factor in Toronto. There are a
few items on our web site that provide further information,
From a fan's view and the latest from Toronto Tourism (see Convention News, at left)

The next Torcon information meeting will be held Sunday May 4th from
1:00pm to 3:00 pm in the New Brunswick room (the Main Mezzanine floor)
of the Royal York hotel on Front Street directly across from Union
station. For further information: The meeting is
open to anyone and as people have done
in the past, feel free to disseminate this announcement.

Check out the new membership information about child memberships, day
memberships, and other related membership information, (see Membership Policies, at left)

There are some bigger Fairmont Deluxe rooms that have been made
available to Torcon. (see Reserve Your Room, at left)
