I asked Shawn if he would come up with a banana crate label for "Vandenberg Bananas" in the style of the old orange crate labels. He came up with a beautiful logo showing an enormous bobble, the plantations, and a hot air balloon drifting by. (Which worked out perfectly for the occasion, because there were several balloons in the sky over Del Mar the weekend of the convention.) We used the logo on our party flyers, and Pat found three actual crates to put the logo on. Vernor Vinge signed one of the flyers for me, signed one of the crates for Shawn, and took one of the crates home to put books in. Mr. Vinge said that it was the best party of the convention, in his opinion.
