Transcript Our Worldcon Philosophy The Seattle in 1981 Committee is enthusiastic and eager to make the 39th Worldcon an enjoyable and memorable experience. In order to provide the environment, activities, entertainment, and atmosphere that a great Worldcon requires, we have been holding regular meetings for over a year to develop our operations, programming, guests, publications, and all of the other aspects of a Worldcon which we would have to be responsible for. We are already working to ensure that attendees of our 1981 Worldcon will be able to experience and enjoy the con without unnecessary hassles. The Seattle Committee does not see the Worldcon as a spectacular circus. Although some Worldcon committees are predicting the attendance in 1981 to reach 10,000, and are basing their bids on huge convention centers capable of handling that number, we see that goal as neither reasonable (considering the size of past Worldcons) nor desirable. Seattle does have a beautiful convention center (which, ever-prepared, we have reserved just in case), but our committee intends instead to preserve the warm and friendly atmosphere charachteristic of a fan-oriented convention, where old and new friends can meet, converse, learn, laugh, and enjoy their common interest in science fiction. EVERYTHING IS GOING JUST FINE THE GDmmiTTBE FCrtSEflTTLE IN NINETffiNl E CNE! eattle is a clean, friendly, unpolluted and modern city where spicy Douglas firs and clear blue lakes are interspersed with glass-walled skyscrapers. A Harper's Magazine survey named Seattle as "...the nation's most livable city..." and 1,200 association executives rate it as one of the top convention cities in America. At Worldcon time, in early September, the climate is characteristically mild and sunny. The area's recreational possibilities are virtually limitless. You can explore lushfforest trails of the North Cascades and Olympic Mountains, or the glaciers and ice caves of Mount Rainier (an hour's drive from the Worldcon site). For water sports enthusiasts, Seattle has several fresh-water lakes besides being nestled on the shores of Puget Sound. Enjoy a drive through through the Olympic Rain Forest to the shores of the Pacific and be back at the Red Lion Hotel in time for dinner... if you're not too full of the delectable cockle clams you dug there. Salmon fishing is also world renowned. You can ride the world's largest double-ended ferry boat, or take an excursion boat to an authentic Indian village for barbecued salmon and steamed clams. Or, within the city, you can tour historic Pioneer Square, its quaint waterfront shops, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, and Wax Museum; or visit the Seattle Center, site of the 1962 World's Fair — 74 acres of parks, fountains, and futuristic buildings housing the Pacific Science Center (amazing) and international shoppes and restaurants (excellent) or you could decide to dine atop Seattle's 600-foot monument to the future, the famous Space Needle (words escape us to describe this one). The Facilities Seattle is unique among the bidders for the 1981 Worldcon in that our bid is based on using a hotel, rather than a convention center, for our convention facilities. The Seattle Worldcon Committee has reserved the beautiful Red Lion Inn for the site for the 1981 convention. The Red Lion is large enough to accomodate all of the programming. The 14,000 square foot Universe Ballroom and 7,000 square foot Galaxie Ballroom are complemented by two 2,400 square foot Saturn Rooms and 25 smaller meetings rooms for between 25 and 100 people each. Since we do not have to depend on a convention center for additional space, up to 2000 fans will be able to stay under the same roof where all convention events will be held. For overflow sleeping space, there are 1,400 additional rooms in nearby hotels, all providing free shuttle service to the Red Lion. **»**""**-->^*^ We look forward to see in WE'D LiKfc TO GET TO KrtOW YOtfl DROP IN ON OUR SUITE AT IGUANACON CR WRITE TO US DIRECTLY CM CARE OF P.O.BOX ZH207 SEATTLE /WASHINGTON WiH PRE5UPP0RTING MEMBERSHIPS ONLY *1.00 OR 6,000 PDUNOS OF NUT* AMD BERRIES FOR THE BlGPOOTS WE DO MOT HAVE IN 0U& BASEMENTS! = hi in Seattle in 1981! The Red Lion's new tower, which has just been completed, makes it the largest hotel in the Northwest. The guest rooms are large and luxurious, the architecture is contemporary and elegant, the view from the glass-walled elevators, breathtaking. With two restaurants, three lounges, and several attractive shops, the Red Lion is everything one would expect in a Worldcon hotel. \ But there's more! The staff is so interested in the convention that a representative from the Red Lion has decided to attend the Worldcon in Phoenix this year. The hotel is so convenient to Sea-Tac International Airport that, although there is a free shuttle to and from the terminal, it is within easy walking distance. The pool is enclosed in a unique wooded courtyard, and the halls of glass and rough-hewn timbers offer dozens of furnished alcoves perfect for all of those little informal fangatherings. A number of fine restaurants are within walking distance, in addition to the quick-snack fast food establishments, a pizza house, a family restaurant, and a large liquor store. Our committee's enthusiasm for the Worldcon is backed by abundant expertise in running both Regional and World Science Fiction Conventions. Our Worldcon experience includes key operations personnel from both MidAmeriCon and Suncont as well as working experience in eight previous Worldcons and members of the constitutional drafting committee for the World Science Fiction Society.
