We're back from promoting the bid at the Eastercon, where we sold our 1,000th bid membership. Now let's go for 2,000 members by the time we get to Chicago in 2012.
We ran a membership desk throughout the convention, and the Guerilla Team ran an unofficial London in 2014 party. The party started at 10pm on Saturday night, and for six hours a continuous stream of con-goers enjoyed the hospitality and free booze. Many people joined and even took Friend memberships while dozens more promised to join -- and the Guerilla Team will hunt then down!
Many thanks to Ming for the Johnny Walker Black Label 12-year-old, Gar for the 10-year-old Jameson, Steve for the Becks, Mandy for the red wine, Stef for the cider and special thanks to Halfer for the St. Georges day celebratory English Whisky and his awesome fruit punch. And also to everyone else who helped with the party and the bid table, bought memberships, or just came along and talked to us about the bid.
