    • Many other mnembers and friends of B.S.F.S. have helped and contributed in many ways to the success of this convention. It was thought that rather than list some names and (perhaps inadvertently) omit others who had contributed nearly as much, it was preferable to extend our thanks and appreciation to all the people who have contributed their aid and support to the convention.

  • NOTABLE INCIDENTS: Hal Haag and son Evan discover Balticon while sight-seeing thru the Inner Harbor. They spy a lovely young femme-fan dressed only in a chain-mail bikini (and a smile). They never saw her again that year, but Hal was hooked and has not missed a Balticon since then.
