August 26-28 is Albuquerque's [link=http://bubonicon.home.att.net/index.htm]Bubonicon 37[/link]. It was named this because the Bubonic Plague (which killed half of Europe's population in the middle ages) still exists on the sunny shores of the Rio Grande in small animals. I personally have never been to a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Con, but I have heard highlights from Mos Alba people, and it sounds like enough fun. Although I'm not sure we're ready to run a booth, I think it would be fun to spend a day up there, perhaps Saturday, August 27th, to see what it's like, and perhaps follow in Mos Alba's footsteps, learning how to run a booth and the like. (Wow, was that a run-on sentence.) The best part, to me at least, is that Star Wars: New Jedi Order author [link=http://walterjonwilliams.net/]Walter Jon Williams[/link] will be in attendance. He lives in Belen and appears to do these kinds of things regularly. So, what does everyone think? I would love to get a group of us up there, we could look around, hang out with the MAFFers, eat at a cool Albuquerque restaurant while up there... enjoy ourselves! An ORFF outing. We can also discuss this at our July meeting, which I'll get the thread up for soon. PS: ORFF? Our mascot ought to be a seal or sea lion.
