The current legal drinking age is 18 and drinks may be served on Sunday, although package stores must be closed then. Enjoy, enjoy. New England If you have a day or two to spend in Boston before or after the con, there are many nearby towns you can explore. To the north, Rockport and Gloucester are picturesque fishing ports and summer artists' colonies, and in Salem you can visit the House of Seven Gables and the Witch Museum. To the west, Concord and Lexington offer the Minute Man National Historical Park, the Old North Bridge, Walden Pond, and the Emerson House. Two excellent re-creations of early American village life are Old Sturbridge Village in south- central Massachusetts and Plimouth Plantation just an hour's drive south of Boston. If a somewhat longer time is at your disposal, there are many beautiful vacation areas in New England: Cape Cod National Seashore, the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, Acadia National Park on the rugged Maine coast, the lake district of New Hampshire, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and the Berkshires of Massachusetts. We hope you will have a chance to visit some of these fascinating places when you come to Boston in 1980. The COMMITTEE Chairman Leslie Turek has been active in fandom since 1965, having worked on Boskones every year since Boskone 1. In 1966 and 1967, she was co- editor of the MIT SF Society's fanzine, Twilight Zine, in 1969 she was chairman of Boskone 6, and she worked on Noreascon in 1971. Between 1973 and 1975 she ran the Boskone Art Show and transformed it from its modest beginnings into the largest and most popular east coast art show. Her most recent fannish project was editing and producing The Noreascon Proceedings. In real life, Leslie is a computer programmer at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory and has numerous hobbies, including horseback riding, gardening, and cooking and eating good food. Secretary George Flynn has been in fandom since 1969. Currently he is a moderately active fanzine letterhack, is in four apas, and gets to all the cons he can afford. He worked on Boskones 11 through 14, was Treasurer of the last two, and is also Treasurer of the New England SF Association. George validated the Hugo nominations for Sun- Con along with Drew Whyte and Jerry Boyajian. In mundane life he's a chemist, co-author of one published textbook and another coming out Real Soon Now. Treasurer Jill Eastlake entered fandom with the Newton South High School SF Club in 1969. She joined the New England SF Association in 1970 and has served as its Treasurer, Clerk, Sales Chairman, Archivist, and Librarian. She was in charge of the publication of two Boskone Books, Homebrew by Poul Anderson and Viewpoint by Ben Bova. Jill has worked on Boskones 7 through 15, serving as head of registration for 8, head of Logistics for 9, Treasurer of 10, Co-Chairman of 11, Co- Treasurer of 12, chief of headquarters for 13, and Chairman of 15. Her normal occupation is operating computers at Digital Equipment Corporation's Information Processing Center, making her a Spacehound of IPC. Tony Lewis, Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society, has been a member of the Science Fiction Book Club since 1952. In 1957 he joined the MIT SF Society and served as Onseck and First of Libcomm for many years. He was one of the founding members of the New England SF Association and served as its first President. (He has also been its Clerk and is the magazine compiler for The NESFA Index.) He chaired Boskone 7 (1970) and Boskone 14 (1977), arranging for it to snow on Sunday each time. He also edited Stroon, was active in TAPA, and helped organize the Houston SF Society in 1968. Tony also found time to be US Agent for EuroCon I and the Britain in '79 bid. He chaired the 29th World Science Fiction Convention (Noreascon) and was a leading light of the High- more in '76 bidding committee. Harry Stubbs was a founding member of the New England SF Association and is the Lord of the Wings for their Aerospace Cadets. He is a member of First Fandom and was in the Strangers Club. Harry served as Treasurer of the Noreascon committee until his novel, Star Light, was nominated for the Hugo. Under his pen name, Hal Clement, his accomplishments are too numerous to mention. Ann McCutchen joined the New England SF Association in 1972, only fifteen years after discovering Science Fiction. She was its Treasurer for two years and ran its Sales Committee for one year. In addition to working on each Boskone Art Show for the past five years, she was Treasurer of Boskone 11, Co-Chairman of Boskone 12, and in charge of at-the-con registration at Boskone 14. She will be Treasurer for Boskone 15 as a change of pace. — continued on back page o CO O 3 P co CO p 13- C CO <t> c+ CO o to I-* O to a> a- GO e+ P e-K CD CO > B •-* a P WSSBSts s&m ■■■ BHI iTMTiiTlffnrf W
