Transcript SEACON 79 37th World Science Fiction Convention BRIGHTON, ENGLAND. 23rd - 27th AUGUST 1979 Permanent Address:- 14 Henrietta Street, London WC2 April, 1978 Reply to: 72 Beeches Drive, Erdington, Birmingham, B24 ODT. CHAIRMAN'S NEWSLETTER - No. 2. S3sss3=3tss=:sstss=:==:sssc==:=3s==s===:==:=:r:z=r:s3ss My idea of a special, limited-circulation WorldCon Newsletter seems to have been quite well-received. As John Millard says in a recent letter, "Ever since the Kansas group introduced the formal typeset magazine-type progress report in 1974, Worldcon committees haven't been communicating very well, although most PRs have been very good in presentation and content• The problem, as I see it, is the long lead-time required to organise, print and distribute, so that by the time individual members get their copies the urgent information is out of date." We have exactly the same troubles. Although fairly modest by N.American standards, our publications do consume a fair amount of effort;and take some time to get out. And our PR-1 was particularly unlucky and seems to have taken an average of 3 months to cross the Atlantic due to the effects of the U.S. East Coast stevedores' strike. 'Phi® Newsletter is seen as a partial answer to the problem of keeping in touch. Please spread around any news items herein* Meanwhile, Graham Charnock is on-target so far with our PR-2, which should be mailed out on June 1st. Over and above that, these Newsletters will continue to be issued at bimonthly intervals. MEMBERSHIP MATTERS At the time of writing I don't know exactly how big SEACON has grown. Now, that might seem a terrible admission to make but the reason is our success in recruiting at the British Eastercon this year - SKYCON - which took place just two weeks ago. We seem to have taken over 200 more names and these, together with the huge piles of mail which have been arriving daily during March (as belated response to PR-l) have meant we've temporarily lost track of the precise numbers of memberships taken out* What happens is that our membership secretary, Eve Harvey, sends out the appropriate material and then transfers details to a standard form. These are sent in batches for data preparation and computer processing. Every so often ace DP manager Martin Hoare re-sorts and prints out a revised list and/ or mailing labels. It's at this time we make note of totals to date* As a guess, I would estimate SEACON now has somewhere over 1500 members - I'll give a more precise figure next time. Please note that rates are now $15-00 attending, $7«5° supporting (£9*00 & £4^50) until the end of 1978, after which time they will increase again. CONFUSION AND CONSTERNATION We've had complaints during the last few months that some people were wrongly listed in PR-1 with "supporting" rather than "attending" status. Others seem not to have b^en 3ist«rl »t oin Chairman: Peter Weston Treasurer: John Steward Secretary: Eve Harvey Vice-chairmen: Graham Charnock, Malcolm Edwards, Rob Jackson, Roger Peyton, Peter Roberts
