“Renovation, 2011″ is the WorldCon in Reno, NV

Though I went to SF convetnions in Washington DC occasionally when I was a boy, I am not much of a convention guy now. I go to a local con here in Sacramento

Renovation, 2011

Renovation, 2011

that is fun, never packed with fans, and usually offers some “B” level stars (although to their credit they had Wil Wheaton last year), but I’ve never really been into the geek-fest that can be found at most larger cons.  I don’t like large crowds, and I hate the one-upmanship, best-new-thing attitude that prevails at the various ComicCons. But the WorldCon is coming to Reno, Nevada in 2011, and I think I’m up for that one. When I do go to cons I spend most of my time in the shill rooms, but this time my dear brother and I are getting a hotel room, and we’re planning on having a party or two. Having a WorldCon in Reno is going to be great!  Hopefully the con folks will give me plenty of stuff to post about in the weeks leading up to the convention. Hope to see you there, and if you are planning on going, register to vote for the Hugos, read the nominees, and cast a vote!
