So, who else is gonna be there?

Oh, man. Maybe we'll make one of our irregular appearances there, just to festivate with you.

The odds have just increased that I will be there.

To fete the GOH, of course; but also because I have a gig in Cleveland the week before, and one in Ann Arbor the week after. Three weeks of February in the Great Lakes! Wee!

(That's not sarcasm. It takes a native to have fond memories of constant clouds...)

And if Guy will be there too, what a bonus! Unofficial GOH! Of course I bet you get put to work.

Congrats.

I'd love to be there (for many reasons), but we are hoarding vacation over the next 18 or so months to make sure we have enough to spend in Australia.

Much as I'd like to be there, that's Boskone weekend, and since I lack the ability to bilocate....

Wow, I've just recently decided to go next year, but this may have pushed me over the edge anyway.

If you're there, I'm there!

This might be Fred's first appearance as a Nonagenarian of Honor.

Visiting the Capricon site, I find that the theme is underwhelming, but the graphic is tremendous.

Congratulations! Now you can tell everyone what it was like in the old days...

Hey, congratulations! Have a good time, and enjoy the honor. I admit to being mildly bemused by the times I've been a FGoH, but pleased by the honor.

Yippie!
I think this is a particularly well-deserved honor - it starts to make up for your years of slaving away as a book peddler, supplying the legions of Chicago fans with their unique brand of dope, while getting paid slave wages. Oh I know, you loved it - of course! - but that doesn't mean there shouldn't be some small recompense, even at this late date.

forestweather and I will do all we can to be there, too, to see you, hang out with the rest of GT, and revisit fandom. Happy for you, Alice! Now get back to that schoolwork, eh!

I generally skip inaccessible hotels, but this calls for an exception.
Not even sure how long it's been since I've seen Spider, either.

Congratulations! Great lineup of guests. EMB and I should (barring surprises) have an empty nest by then, which will make it a lot easier to schedule con attendance.
