Q Branch has delivered the goods! We have a mobile-friendly online convention schedule for Westercon 66!
This is the official mobile guide to Westercon66. The program and participant databases were last updated on June 25, 2013. What? It's a web page that works like a mobile app, so your browser should cache all of it and make it work when you're offline as well. Please give us feedback.

Do you know about Westercon66's awesome Con Suite?  All registered attendees are welcome to come on by the Con Suite to rest, have a snack or hold a "secret rendevous" with a fellow "secret agent."

Feel free to drop in for a light meal or a snack, or just a soda or a cup of coffee!

Con Suite hours will start at least one hour before the first panel of the day, and continue until early evening, when the Con Suite will close for a short time to be transformed into a hosted party each night.

There will be light breakfast offerings in the morning along with coffee, tea and juice. Later in the day we will have sandwich makings, snacks and cookies to keep you going.

Your favorite beverages will also be available and, of course, there will be chocolate!

It was a good interview, and Carla was engaged and really interested in fan history and especially costume. Who knows, we might even get to meet her if she comes to see the Masquerade!

Cosplay is VERY popular in Sacramento! I'm looking forward to seeing what the locals and the traveling attendees enter into the Masquerade costume contest on July 6th! http://www.westercon66.org/programevents/masquerade-and-costume-program/  If you need some help or ideas for your costume entry or for cosplay in general, there are a few great costuming panels being offered at Westercon 66!

Making the west coast's oldest F&SF convention new again.
Introduction
In 1948, Walter J. “Doc” Dougherty of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society proposed that an annual West Coast convention be started for West Coast fans who couldn’t afford to travel to Worldcon each year. The first Westercon was held in September, 1948. It was a one-day event with an attendance of 77. It wasn’t until 1951 that the Westercon became a weekend-long event, settled into the July 4th holiday and began traveling to different cities.

Westercon 66 is 2013's Westercon, to be held at the Hilton Arden West in Sacramento, July 4-7.
