As expected, MediaWest*Con 36 has signed contracts for Ramada Lansing and Comfort Inn. Ramada will be the default hotel, with the Comfort Inn next door as overflow. We hope to have the reservation process in place soon.
Carol Lynn will continue as MW*C Hotel Liaison, and member reservations will go through her. This is the only way we can be assured of getting properly credited for rooms reserved in the host hotel, which is what pays for much of the expense of putting on MW*C. It also assures that only MW*C 36 members will be getting into our room block, thereby helping reduce the possibility of conflicts with mundanes.
Our apologies for the many delays. We would also like things to have gone more efficiently and had everything in place sooner, but real life of late has been anything but convenient.
For those who are curious about the Days Inn next door which was closed during MW*C 35, the furnishings and fixtures were auctioned off in September, and this week the building was used for firefighter training! It has been reported that the new owners plan to demolish the building and rebuild with a new hotel and shops.
