Getting Ready For A BUSY Weekend...

Duckon is in a week. I did some checking on their website, and if it to be believed, for once everything isn't, quite, happening all at the same time.

I expect to be heading out early with the girls to get a good parking space by the dealers' room. Child care is scheduled to open at One. As soon as I can drop the girls there I can go back down and start to unpack the van.
Roper hopes to get there by three and finish unpacking the table while I run upstairs to the filk suite to help out at the Dandelion Wine release party. This runs from 4 to 6. (Come up, have a nosh, buy a disk...)

After the party there is just time to grab the girls, run out to bring back food, feed said girls, feed above mentioned husband, drop the girls back in Child Care (have I mentioned how much I like Duckon's child care?) and get down to Talis's request concert.
Then Roper and I do a concert set at 10.
At 11 or so I collect the girls from CC and collapse in a heap.

The rest of the weekend will be a breeze.

I'm really looking forward to actually seeing folks at this con. So often lately I am so busy with the girls that I can't visit with anybody.

So, come by the table. let's chat.

Feel free to press Steve into service. *grin*

I have to teach until 11:15 your time, at which point I'll get in the car and head for Chicago, so I'm hoping to be there to help with dealing some. (Depending on traffic etc - I have to see where the con actually *is*.)

I'm looking forward to seeing you!

Feel free to press Steve into service.

Well, we try to be polite about these things. :)

"Welcome to Chicago, Steve. Grab a box."

I'm thinking maybe he'd like to at least breathe a little... :)

Good point. On the other hand, at a con he's never been to with people he doesn't know, he might like having a way of being helpful.

So "Welcome to Chicago, Steve! It's great to meet you! Now, grab a box." ;)

(Actually, I would be appreciative if you could help him figure out where registration is eventually - he was too late to pre-reg and I've only been to Duck the once and it was working for y'all.)

No problem. Registration (unless they moved it) will be right outside the Dealers' Room, so getting him to the right spot will be easy.

This will be my first Duckon, and I'm looking forward to it. I'm taking half a vacation day next Friday, so I may or may not get there in time for the tail end of the release party.

Have fun. Someday we'll get to a Duckcon. Hmmm someday we'll get to a con that isn't FilKONtario!

Really hope you have a good time.

x2 & I will be there early-ish Friday, helping Jan prep things (and likely working the party). No clue when x1 will arrive as he's being dropped off on the way back from Kentucky (his scout Crew is going to Mammoth Cave next week). But we'll be around somewhere all weekend :) Working the music lots, so that's probably the best bet. Not that it's much of a surprise, i'm sure :)

See you soon :)
