Who do I need to harass to get a JCon 2015 forum set up?

Probably Tam. If he doesn't do it himself he'll harass whomever needs to do it.

Ok, I have my plane ticket, reserved my room and bought my actual pass.

Now I am getting excited. Some of the panels look interesting this year.

And of course a trip to the Cheesecake Factory.

Only a 20 minute hike instead of drive this year. :D

In America, 20 minute hikes are drives.

I would use a bicycle for that; then it's usually at least as quick as with a car.

Same, but I doubt they'll have rental bikes at the hotel. :p

I went to check their website, but it seems there really isn't any Cheesecake factory in the Netherlands. :o

Give Pam a ride to buy beer....check!

We aren't getting a car this time.

Corkscrew...haha. That was classic. No I don't think I'll need one anyway.

I will be in late Thursday night. We can do a beer/bottle run after I check in or Friday.

We need a room party this year.

I will also be in on Thursday night, after a long drive from Illinois. I'll leave on Monday. It will be nice to do the driving with proper sleep this year.

Think I'll be at most of them. The interconnections in the books are just mindblowing. :D

It was a good con. Our Theoryland dinner was a little comical with the five of us sitting at a tiny crescent-shaped table.

I spent most of the weekend sitting outside talking to either Maria or Other Jen who runs the WoT track. We made plans for next year, including a panel on the notes for which I volunteered bossman (who said he is probably coming next year), myself, and Linda. I am hoping Brandon will join in but that probably depends on how busy he will be.

This year Maria and I decided that we were going to be on the same team for once. Also, the Tor rereaders have been trying to get me on their team for years and I always go with Theorylanders, so Maria and I sat on their team. We named ourselves Unstoppable, and we were. (For the record, Maria had the answer to the hardest question this time, the one that no one else got right.) Our medals say "Dragon Reborn"; the second place medals say "Demandred". There was a team that, upon seeing me and Maria on the same team, named themselves "Playing For Second". (They came in fourth, but that was after being in second for the whole rest of the game.)

Apparently the Unstoppable team was a little obnoxious, so Other Jen finally asked me if I would just run the trivia panels myself next year, which is what I really wanted anyway. I have been wanting to do that since I started going to JordanCon; it only took 6 years of me being obnoxious for them to give in. (I even gave up on individual trivia a long time ago.)

Had a great time as always! Not much sleep but well worth it.

Lack of central couches made congregating a bit more difficult, but we all found each other during breaks and meals.

Terez and I also got a selfie to prove we are not alter egos

:)
