    Just happened on the site and figured I'd contribute what I could.

    I was tapped to do security for the event and took it very seriously, as I regarded it as an opportunity.

    The committee was a great bunch of people who made me comfortable in my new role and everything paid off when we had a 'fire' in the art show.

    Security quietly closed the art show to 'rearrange some exhibits' and then we searched for the fire: everyone on the walkie talkies was waiting to clear the hotel. Then we found the cigarette butt in a planter along with smoldering cedar chips.

    I hardly remember much about the event itselt, running con security is a 24 hour thing, but I do remember that I had a good time.

    Oh - couple of other things:

    If I remember correctly, Gary Farber had a pretty nice display of fanzines set up.

    Joe Mayhew was running around a lot.

    We had to remove numerous people from the pool for skinny-dipping after midnight.

    Of course - that couild all have happened at other cons as well, and probably did!
