This is magnificent. Many thanks for the good advice.

Now, a couple of questions:

- It says to review the 'party' page on the convention website, but I see that doesn't exist yet. Do you know if/when it will be posted? Is there a party maven who might answer questions?

- It also says to make room arrangements well in advance, but the people assigning suites STILL haven't made any decisions. What's a party organizer to do? (I paranoidly reserved a 'deluxe' room, too, and asked for it to be located where I can have a party there, but I haven't heard anything...and that ploy failed miserably last year, when we had to change rooms TWICE on the night of the party, the final time into a room way too small for the group.)

Under 'supplies' I was pleased to see the static-cling sheets mentioned. They worked well last year...and I captured a couple after the con and used them as window shades in the van on the trip home.

Thanks again for doing this. I'll use it, and if I think of anything to add, I'll be sure to pass it along.
