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. :)
