Holy crap! I have always said that I HATE fighting for rooms at cons. I just happened to remember that today was the day that the room block for FC opened. The Dogs smiled on me today as I left late from work but managed to hit every green light on the way home. I logged on at 4:01 MDT and booked a room. I guess things filled up within the next 10 minutes. Wow. I guess a lot of people will be staying at the Hitlon. I would have preferred the St Claire, but now I'm reading that it will be unavailable next year. I smell trouble for FC. This type of thing could be death to a con. It has now achieved the "too big" status. Already I'm thinking about bypassing the con in '14. I have a Panama Canal cruise in the works. Anyone want to join us?
