Minicon 26 was held 29–31 March 1991 at the Radisson Hotel South (Bloomington). Guests of honor were George Alec Effinger (author), David Cherry (artist), Al Kuhfeld, Ph.D. (science), Suzanne V. Tompkins and Jerry Kaufman (fans), and Jon Singer (lunch).
The total membership numbered 2299, with 2150 warm bodies. 170 were at the door, and 2080 pre-reg. 70 people were comped. 150 pre-registered members did not attend. No, those numbers don't quite add up, but that's what it says on this scrap of paper found in the archives!
The executive committee was Kay Drache, Karen Cooper, Karen Johnson, Lynn Litterer, and Polly Jo Peterson.

Here's a video including images of some of the button badges used in this Minicon era.
The WWW had been invented by Minicon 26, but no web servers were live on the public Internet yet, so we're sure it didn't have a web site.
Here is a piece, mirrored from Gabe Helou, describing some public discussion after Minicon 25 (and hence related to planning Minicon 26).
