"And you may take me to the Fair..."

The University of FenCon may have had its Commencement Ceremonies this afternoon (and it did, indeed. As FenCon XI's Dean of Fandom, I had the honor of handing out diplomas), but post-baccalaureate studies begin Monday with FenCon-On-a-Stick.

It's our outing to the State Fair of Texas, where deep-fried s'mores await, along with other culinary...adventures of the deep fried kind.

We look to have a merry crew: Pat Virzi, Leanne Verhulst, Jesi Pershing, Mark Oshiro, Kelsey whose-last name-I-don't-know, a David (of course and likewise re: last names), Steve Jackson, Tiffany (his GoH liaison), and perhaps one or two others plan to join us.

The expedition will follow the same format as the TAFF-On-A-Stick outings to the Minnesota State Fair back in 1998 and 2000. Here are Monday's meeting times and places:

11am Big Tex
12:30pm Butter Sculptures (Creative Arts bldg.)
2:30pm Texas Hall of State (in front)
4pm Marine Corps Drum & Bugle Corps (Marine Corps Square)
5:45pm Ostrich Races (Pan Am Barn)


FenCon has been fabulous fun. A fannish restorative, and then some. My thanks and appreciation to FenCon Chairman Tim Miller; Hotel Liaison (and next year's Chairman) Russ Miller; Guest Liaison Rhonda Eudaly, my FenCon drivers and onsite GoH support, Crystal Gayle and Ellen Braun; Ellen's husband, Mike Braun; Program Head Julie Barrett, the Phenomenal Pat Virzi, and oh, so many other fans who were so welcoming, friendly, and fun to be around.

Onward!

Glad you're having a good time at FenCon. I envy you the Texas State Fair, as it lives in infamy due to all the funky on-a-stick concoctions. We expect a full report!
