I am willing to go to Worldcon to do this for SIAI. I live near Monterey,
about an hour from the convention.

I'll cover the cost. I've been looking for more ways to help out. :)

Months ago I saw that the admission was absurdly expensive, and being not
all that clear what to expect from the show I wrote it off. But, what the
heck. This will give me a good excuse to go. I'll try for Saturday.

I am an SF fan of course, but I wonder what the real appeal of the
convention is, and for you especially? Could you give me some tips to
maximize my experience?

Also, would anyone else like to help hand out flyers? I'll bring 'em. :)
