Phil's Rambling Rants
Looking at the space available (and the pillars), I think the best thing to do would have been to stretch it a bit longitudinally so that it reached toward the windows. That would have added ten or so seats, which I think
would have been a good thing.
Truth to tell, Duckon filking has gotten large enough that it should
support two circles. I barely found a seat at the Saturday filk through the kind offices of exapno
. And given the size of the circle, it probably would
have been better for me as the N+1st person to show up to go to the alternate room, save for the fact that I
was the guy who'd suggested that everyone move, so heading to the alternate room would have looked a bit wrong. :)
My apologies -- my memory was that almeda
had been trying to make the circle bigger and she was the one who threw up her hands when other people kept shrinking it. I thought the circle was too small myself, but I didn't assert myself over it.
as an after thought, it would have been intelegent were we to get notice of the art show closing, I asked murray to tell me yet was not specific as to were i would be, and get into the room and set up the circle before letting the masses know. the filk in conf. room continued with moonwulf and tom for a while.
just a reminder, the hotelis expected to be adding a ballroom by next year. so we just may have a dedicated filk room.
If they build a new ballroom on the parking lot, we're gonna have other problems, though. The lot was very full Saturday night.
