Seattle in 2012 Westercon bid news

Bobbie DuFault, chair of the Seattle in 2012 Westercon bid, says:

I wanted to formally announce that our dates are firm for Thursday, July 5 through Sunday, July 8 and that we will have days available on both sides so travelers can enjoy our lovely state. There are some plans at this time to provide some informal fannish fun things to do on the 4th so those wishing to spend the full holiday with us can rest assured there will be something to do.

The hotel that I have filed with, the SeaTac Marriot has given us a firm offer, which at the time of filing we were going to go with. However, in the meantime the Hilton and the Doubletree made better offers. The best all around for our convention, should we win, is from the Doubletree. We wanted to let the voters know before the vote that it is most likely we will sign a contract with the Doubletree when we win. We will have the contract in hand in Pasadena if anyone should want to review it.

Pasadena is the site of this year’s Westercon, where the 2012 site selection vote will be held.
