The staff and volunteers of Westercon 68 extend their deepest condolences to our Guest of Honor Spider Robinson upon the passing of his daughter, Terri Luanna daSilva. Shared joy is multiplied, shared pain is lessened.
In addition to her father, Terri is survived by her husband and five-year-old daughter.
Unfortunately, her illness created significant debt. A site has been set up on YouCaring.com where contributions can be made.
In addition to everything you've come to expect in a local SF convention like Westercon, we will have old ConChord favorites, including:
|Kazoo awards: That's right: awards made out of plastic kazoos and… other ingredients.||The Totally Tacky and Tasteless Revue: Do you find Weird Al Yankovic songs too tasteful? Do you like horrible and inappropriate filk songs? Do you wish you could have been on the Gong Show? This is the event for you.|
|Concerts by our guests and other notable names in the community||One Shots and Twofers! Dare to share!|
|Filkers from up and down West Coast and elsewhere, including some regular LAFA attendees.||Open Filk Circles 24 hours a day|
Visit the Westercon Registration Page to register in advance.
