Next November, in Toronto

This weekend next year I have the honor of being the FanGoH at SFContario, a new convention in Toronto. Better yet, my fellow GoHs include my dear friends for life, Editor GoHs Patrick & Teresa Nielsen Hayden, and Filk GoH Karen Linsley. I'll be watching the SFContario website and dlacey's LiveJournal for the announcement of SFContario's Author GoH.

Diane is running programming, so there's the added delight of working with her on that. I understand Catherine Crockett has the consuite, again making it easy to arrange some sort of Toad Woods Toronto or similar event there. I don't get there often, but I've loved Toronto since my first visit there in 1986 through my most recent for Corflu in 2006. I'm glad to know I'll be returning next November and sharing SFContario with fine, fine folks such as these. And others of you reading this, too, I hope!

SFContario: November 19-21, 2010. Ramada Plaza Toronto.

Thank you!

Congrats Geri!
Hey Geri,
Congrats on being GOH at SFContario and my wife Sue does the website and will be running the Filk Track with my help. I look forward to introducing her to you.

Re: Congrats Geri!
Oh, that's fabulous! I look forward to meeting Sue at long last, and to seeing you again after far too long.

I wasn't familiar with Karen's voice. The samples on the Road to Roswell webpage left me shivering with anticipation, and knowing you're going to be there, too? Big wow. SFContario just keeps sounding better and better.

Wonderful! Congratulations, Geri. Another trip to Toronto sounds like a good time to me.

Thanks, Randy.

Road trip! Road trip! Transportation, etc. available should you decide to combine it with a trip to Troy, NY, or Massachusetts, even.

Way cool! I've got a bunch of friends in Toronto I've been wanting to visit. I can kill multiple birds with one stone.

And congratulations!
Nov. 22nd, 2009 08:45 pm (UTC)
Oh and Patrick Nielsen Hayden is Susan Palwick's editor. I sense a road trip!

Congratulations! Well deserved!
Nov. 22nd, 2009 09:07 pm (UTC)
Many thanks. Wow, what a great icon!
Nov. 22nd, 2009 09:47 pm (UTC)
I'm thrilled to hear you can be our fan GoH, Geri. I'd be happy to help make some sort of consuite/Toad Woods thing happen. This is going to be so much fun!
Nov. 22nd, 2009 10:41 pm (UTC)
Sounds good. You're already in the Friends of Toad Hall/Toad Woods registers several times over and so already have a good feel for the sort of ambiance we might create for a Toad Woods thing in the consuite. Though I'll probably leave the giant purple Bungled Jungle fish at home....

(I'm so glad to see that The Bungled Jungle is still up and running! Gavi was still a toddler their first year at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.)

This is marvelous news and I hope you have just a great time. I probably won't be there (limited funds *and* limited time for traveling, these days) but I'm sure there will be a lot of good people there for you to party with. Keep us posted.

Re: Congratulations
Thanks, Nate! I understand the limited funds and limited time aspects of Real Life these days All Too Well.
Nov. 22nd, 2009 10:58 pm (UTC)
Hey, cool! I didn't know you were one of the other guests. And it's from your post that I now know which hotel it's in. Jarvis just south of Carlton -- hey, that beats "somewhere in North York" all to hell.

This one will be fun.

Yep; I was certainly jazzed when dlacey told me about SFContario's fabulous Editor GoHs. Here's her brief post announcing the convention is a go.

What a great lineup! Congratulations.

Nov. 23rd, 2009 12:20 am (UTC)
Thank you. It's always fun to hear who the other GoHs are, but this is the first time it's come with such a blast of sheer and total delight.
Nov. 23rd, 2009 01:44 am (UTC)
Congratulations! I hope you have a marvelous time. :-)
Nov. 23rd, 2009 03:18 am (UTC)
Thanks. 2010 has turned into a bumper year for me in this regard. I look forward to doing well by the very kind and welcoming conventions both south and west.

Grats Geri! Have a great time!
Nov. 23rd, 2009 03:19 am (UTC)
Thanks! It certainly looks like I will. Here's hoping that helps lead to fun for all.

Sounds like time I finally attended a Toronto convention. Even though I live here, I only go to cons elsewhere.
Nov. 24th, 2009 07:49 am (UTC)
Laughing now. Out loud and everything.

SFContario sounds like a good fit for you -- dlacey is thinking along the lines of both Minicon and ConFusion. I expect other members of the concom have different models in their heads, but they've pulled together a good team with a variety of useful experience. And it will be *lovely* to see you there if you make it.
Nov. 23rd, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)
How marvelous! Well done!
Nov. 23rd, 2009 07:51 pm (UTC)
Further, both times I was a fan guest of honor I thought, "But there are so many more-deserving fans!" and by that I meant fans like you.

Wonderful! I've just put it on my calendar!
Nov. 25th, 2009 06:24 am (UTC)
It would be great if you could make it!
