web team is now (mostly) at Minicon and probably won't be
updating this during the convention. Hope you find this useful,
hope to see many of you at Minicon! Wishing the rest of you
were here. Hope this webpage gives you a taste of what we're
things are in different places than last Minicon: Registration,
Dealer's Room, downstairs smoking consuite are in the same
places as previous years. The Art Show is in the Duluth
Room this year (non-smoking consuite was there last year).
This year the downstairs non-smoking consuite is in Salon
E and the Bridge and the Volunteers table are
also in Salon E. The upstairs consuite is on the 21st

PDF version of the Minicon 37 program
is now available online (it's 2.97MB in size). Notes added 2017: The first three pages
of the PDF show the three different covers. The "2002" shown on the
bottom of the first one does not appear in the print version. It
just barely appears in the small version on page 14. I'm guessing
it's supposed to be there in print, but was too light.
The book was printed in black and white despite color on a few pages
of the PDF.

Tribune will have any schedule changes. It's unlikely
that we'll be updating this web version during the con (sorry!).
you need to contact someone about Minicon, be warned that
most department heads are onsite at the con and many of them
will not be reading email this weekend. If you're at the Hilton,
your best bet is to go to the Bridge (Salon E) if you need
to track down a specific committee member (assuming you don't
spy them elsewhere at the con). If you aren't at Minicon,
you might try calling the Hilton and asking to talk to someone
with Minicon or to the Minicon Bridge.
Registration will be located
in the Coat Room on the Third Floor of the Hilton. After hours,
you can register on The Bridge (this year it's located in
the room the hotel calls Salon E, which is also one of the
consuites). The At-the-Door cost for a membership is $70 for
adults, $30 for children 12 and under (babes in arms get in
