It looks like 2011 will be a busy year for conventions for me, mainly because I'll be attending three in the Bay Area.
In chronological order:
|FOGcon||San Francisco||March 11-13|
|Westercon||San José||July 1-4|
|Renovation (WorldCon)||Reno||August 17-21|
|World Fantasy? (not sure if going)||San Diego||October 27-30|
In an attempt to avoid a repeat of my disorganization over this year's WorldCon (I didn't have a membership, plane tickets, or a hotel room until a couple weeks ago, and didn't vote in the Hugos for the first time in years), I've now bought memberships for all of the above (except World Fantasy, which I never seem to be able to decide about going to until September or so), and reserved hotel rooms for most of them.
Also bought a membership for Chicon 7, the 2012 WorldCon in Chicago. (All in one building! Cool!)
