(Note, there is a promotional spy/Agent 66 theme as part of the advertising of the convention -- FB messages are written as "coded messages," etc. This is not a spy or secret agent convention -- it's just the "theme", not the subject matter.  Subject matter is sci-fi/fantasy and general geeky fandom.  I think the organizers thought that since we're a state government town [state capitol], a spy theme made sense to them, lol.)

    I had a very good time, there were great parties and dancing, It was fun to see old friends and meet some new ones.

    Note: They're having a FREE "sneak peek" on THURSDAY (opening day)! Never been to a Westercon? Wondering if it’s worth it? If you live in the Sacramento area, they invite you to stop by on the afternoon of Thursday July 4 for a public “Sneak Peek” at the convention! The Art Atrium, Dealers Room and Fan Table areas of the convention will be open to non-members from noon to 5PM. http://www.westercon66.org/2013/07/01/get-a-sneak-peek-at-westercon-66/

    Has anyone here attended Westercon66 before? If so, can you share what it was like? I get a general idea from their website, but I'm looking for more info. Pretend you're talking to someone who hasn't been to a convention before ... :)
    Thank you!

      "Bimbos of the Death Sun" is a great send-up of SF conventions--don't know if you can find it on Amazon. Cons are lots of fun. The big ones are really exciting; I'm not sure how lavish this one will be. I have been to WorldCons where the costumes for the masquerade were made by professionals: dragons with 30-foot wingspans blowing smoke etc. The attendees are really openminded neat people. Watch out for the Klingon women, though. . . .

    Don't wait to reg if you plan to stay for the whole 4 day weekend! Current reg is $65, at the door will be $75. There should be some single day at the door rates as well but they haven't been announced yet.

    Wow! How did Sacramento score this? I am very excited!
