Transcript CHAIRMAN'S NEWSLETTER - PAGE 2 Ibis is what went wrong. First, errors in assigning correct status are generally our fault. Preparing the list in PR-1 was very much a rush Job particularly when one considers the mess of paperwork we brought back from Miami. As a result only a partial correlation was made between presupporting and voting members (well, you try matching up two sets of 1000+ names, neither in any sort of order!)- Correct details have nOF been entered on to our records and PR-2 will contain a re-classified membership list which should reassure everyone who may have wondered about our staffwork. New membership cards should already have been issued where necessary. But there have been instances where people seem to have disappeared from the system completely, and these remain a mystery. Therefs not much we can do save to listen sympathetically to complaints, but I have to note in passing that we recently received a package of 16 voting stubs from the 1977 site-selection ballot, "found11 and posted to us by the SUNCON committee in February 1978. Naturally the various cheques had expired after 6 months and each of these had to be returned individually. DEADLINE DATE APPROACHES » " '■■ "1" ht i in i n ■ mm As I mentioned in the first Newsletter, October 1st is the nominal date upon which booking forms for the Metropole and other convention hotels will be posted (l week earlier for overseas members, airmail). It's very important that people realise this and join SEACON early} also that they return the form promptly because there may be something of A scramble. Certainly it's essential that we take as many hotel rooms as possible before Christmas, before the holiday-season rush starts for the Brighton hotels• One or two people have been writing to enquire whether they can book rooms now* Sorry - the answer has to be "no", and the hotel has been told to accept no bookings for the convention period except through our system* The only exception to this rule concerns suites in the Metropole Hotel itself, of which there is a limited number only* Suites will be allocated separately via Rob Jackson, and as far as possible he will try to ensure these go to individuals (or groups) whose need is greatest - i.e. for professional or entertaining purposes, etc* If you want a suite or indeed, wish to organise any special function (SFWAf SFRA, etc) during the convention period^ write to Rob now. NEW RECRUITS FOR SEACON COMq'fTBB mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm* i m n ■ i.iin¥ ■■■ i■■■■■■■ i Over and above our central, management committee of nine, we have been steadily recruiting other committee members to handle specialist jobs. Some ef these newcomers ares- John Brosnant author of several books on films, John came to the UK in 1970 on the celebrated Heicon bus from his native Australia and in 1979 he will handle our film programme* Jack Chalker* needing no introduction for his work on North American conventions and proprietor of Mirage Press, Jack will take a leading role in the auction team, and as U.S. liaison for auction materials* Pat Charnock1 celebrated lady editor of Wrinkled Shrew and member of the 197£ Seacon committee (at Coventry), Pat will set up our Fan Room, fast becoming the heart of British Eastercons (after the bar, of course)* Coral Clarke 1 congratulations are in order for Coral; not only does she join Rob Jackson to organise the Masquerade but she has recently become engaged to the same intrepid individual! Donald Eastlake: few are better-qualified for the job as manager of the business meeting at SEACON '79* Don will also advise us on handling the I98I site-selection ballot* t # #3
