Material for the L.A. in 2006 Worldcon Bid Parties to be held at Con José. At left is a heavy-duty rack in a box (you can see the drawing of what it will look like assembled), with two small carpets on top. (We intended to use the carpets to catch drips and save the suite's carpet. We needed four or five of them six times as big...) In the big green rectangular duffle bag is a roaster oven which we didn't actually use. Behind that is a folding 5-foot table. The black and red carrying tube in front of the stack of bins contains the roll-up banner. The blue-lid flip-top bins contain various food and supplies - you can see a small jar of peanut butter in the right-hand corner of the top bin. I don't remember what was in the box marked "Fragile" on top of the red-lid bins.

The big blue chair was used in the Medlab. The Moving Message Sign was part of the airlock contraption, the tall tubular thing is the bubble lamp from the Medlab. There's a white ice chest in the background, up on one end, and the two duffle bags contain various toy weaponry for the Armory. All the PVC pipes at right are part of the airlock. The #10 cans of chili and nacho cheese sauce were not served either, and in fact most of them were returned to Smart and Final the week after the convention. (We were going to heat everything up in crockpots and bring the hot crockpots into the party room, but we ran out of time, space, and people.) The cardboard boxes in the background contain additional props for the parties. Incidentally, the little red car across the street is Elizabeth's Miata, which I had the pleasure of driving the night after we got back in order to assist in dropping the rental truck off at the U-Haul place.

Back to Con Jose Part 1: Truck Loading at Elizabeth and Jerome's (25-Aug-2002)Next: Sherri Benoun and Tadao Tomomatsu figure out what to load next. The jumbo rental truck is in the background. All of the Con José Art Show materials on loan from LASFS are already on board, as is all of the soda purchased for the parties. The truck is here at the house in order to load up all of the mail-in art, and all of the bid stuff goes in last (and will be taken off first and stashed in Elizabeth and Jerome\
