Reno: The Final Frontier
Today my friend Arthur, who's on the committee trying to bring the World Science Fiction Convention to Reno in 2011, e-mailed me to say that Seattle, the major competition, has withdrawn their bid. It now looks highly likely that Reno will indeed host the convention, barring a last-minute bid from some other city.
This would be seriously cool, since Gary and I could attend WorldCon -- something I never get to do, since it always conflicts with the beginning of the fall semester -- and lots and lots of our friends would be coming here. I hope it happens!
