Transcript As this copy is being written, 22 days before the con (good novel title, no?), it looks as though we may top any previous convention in memberships, and have to cope with several thousand more people than we anticipated two years zeago. Financing problems caused by the imlarge number of voting memberships sold at MAC have run us uncomfortably close tt5to the edge, fiscally, and the flood of ^(Correspondence and new memberships s 'beginning in May is running us ragged. ar( There are at this writing perhaps )n'|six or seven people working full time ia, (and I mean twenty-hours days) on Iggy. c[e Christ, you know it ain *t easy! in( And, beyond the sheer physical ea problem of setting up the first Worldcon using multiple hotels and facilities from 0IT the beginning, the ERA boycott of Arizona erupted this past year, and the fan- nish rumor-mill swung into full opera- Jel tion. You should see the list of "Iggy • Approved IguanaCon Rumors" we keep ie( around the house for yocks . . . Christ, you know it ain 't easy. Oh. We also have the distinction, it seems, of having the youngest Worldcon Chair ever. Stand up on that box, Tim, and take a bow - or we'll tell everyone about Twibbit 6. The eyes of fandom are upon us. The Worldcon is run on psychochemicals from Coke on up to buttermilk (de ii gustibus . . .), Death, Ruin Destruction - nij All Fandom Will Be Plunged Into War - itc -And we're having the time of our in$ lives. gc Before the Worldcon came, no one sa.( would have accused any but one or two ifi of us of being workaholics, but we're md working ourselves ragged and loving every minute of it. Let us pass on our happi- iey ness with what we're doing to you. We want you to enjoy IguanaCon, even lore r a IguanaCon, as much as we have over the go-past two years. Take pleasure in it! Who ilis- has better cause? After all, Iggy is your to convention. he Ahem. Now that we've gotten that me out of our systems . . . IguanaCon. Yes. we in some ways it resembles a three-ring cir- vaScus. We're using three facilities: the Hyatt ry.'Regency Hotel, the Hotel Adams, and the on- Phoenix Civic Plaza, which includes the an-Convention Center and the Symphony illy Hall. Elsewhere in the Program Book you ess will find hotel information and layouts. we Immediately, here's a brief rundown on nd what's happening in each of the facilities iafl and who's expediting the happening. ^as The Hyatt Regency: If you're read- nd ing this, you've already picked up your ice membership packet, so you know that on convention registration is in the Hyatt Mezzanine. Other things are to be found >uf there. er. There will be a table there for the >ut first few days of the con staffed by Cow- est boy Dan and Tim Kelly from the Pinnacle ;ell Peak Restaurant. You can't miss the Pin- ry/ nacle Peak people; they'll probably be the )n, IGUANACON PROGRAM BOOK only persons there wearing ten-gallon hats, cowboy boots, and six-shooters. Local color, y'know. They're selling a package deal: a western-style steak dinner at the unique restaurant north of Phoenix preceded and followed by a chartered scenic tour of the desert up that way - quite spectacular, if you like. Pinnacle Peak's normal meal (they serve only one, with a variety of steak cuts) is a 32-ounce monster accompanied by ranch beans and all things pertinent thereto. The deal they're selling at Iggy calls for a mere 16-ounce chunk of beef, but you'll be able to upgrade it when you get there. Probably the most important table in the Hyatt Mezzanine, however, is the Information Desk, run by Bob Lackey. If you need information on anything—if you're lost, confused, have a problem or complaint, or just need to know the nearest place to buy shoelaces go to the staffers there. If they can't answer your questions themselves, chances are that they can put you in touch with someone who can. The Info Desk is your main point of contact with the Operations Department, the people responsible for general convention services and the smooth running of nearly everything. Don't hesitate to approach them there. The Adams Large and' varied segments of the programming are to be found in this brand-new historic langmark across the street from the Hyatt Regency. Among them are the Place of Our Own programming and lounge, the paper airplane contest, the Iggy Trivia Bowl, and the fanzine fans', neofans' and wargamers' rooms. On Sunday, the Adams Ballroom will host a sequence of Lovecraft films. Special thanks are extended to those who helped with membership processing before IguanaCon. These people gave unstintingly of their time and effort, and deserve applause, applause, egoboo, egoboo . . . : Mike Bushroe Richard (Cherokee) Clark Jim Corrick Warren dePriest Sharon Maples Gay Miller Charles Roten Trini Ruiz To them, I give my heartfelt thanks. Carol Hoag, Memberships The Civic Plaza A short walk from either hotel, the Civic Plaza is actually composed of two different buildings, the Convention Center and the Symphony Hall. The Convention Center will hold the Art Show and the Hucksters' Room, as well as miscellaneous programming items. Symphony Hall, a large auditorium seating 2,557 will be the site o the Masquerade and the Hugo Awards Ceremonies. It should be noted at this point that seating for these and almost all other events will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Again, this is only a brief description of what will be happening. For a more detailed discussion, consult the IguanaCon II Procket Program. In the long and arduous course -- or chequered career, if you prefer - of IguanaCon Two publications, there have been a number of people whose support and skull- sweat made Tim's job and mine much more tolerable. These names appear in a list below because we wish to single them out for special thanks. For outstanding devotion, though, two names should lead all the rest. First is Tim Kyger himself, who began his life as an iguana in the slook-mills of publications, and without whose long labors and unrelenting nudzhing very little would have gotten done. Second is Teresa Nielsen, for long-suffering dedication going back to PR 1 and a willingness to do whatever the job required. For both these people, there is no appreciation great enough to be put into words - but it's there. Thanks. And so: Teresa Nielsen - Managing Editor, overwhelming presence, and sine qua not enough . . . Tim Kyger -- A royal nudzh, faithful co-editor, best friend, sine qua non . . . Phil Paine - Who came through, twice . . . Patrick Hayden - Our necessary perfectionist . . . Mike Lampe - For gruntwork above and beyond the call of duty . . . Glen Blankenship -- For support and willingness to blueline . . . Gary Leach - Who passed the I rial by Ordeal, and deserves more recognition than he's getting . . . To these and to the others mentioned as Publications Staff in previous Progress Reports - more thanks than I can put into words. -- Bill Patterson, Editor '---V"'- SB OK
