  1. Put aside another $200 a month and maybe you’ll have enough money to fly to the UK and pay for a room for a week, not to mention dine every evening on that internationally famous English cooking (bangers & spam, with Hollandaise sauce, capers & white wine).

  2. Tried that deposit plan with Chicon. There was some misfiling and misunderstand and they didn’t acknowledge my checks nor bothered to find out why I was sending them checks, despite phone numbers and e mails and one way communicatin. I hope that the idea can be perfected. I’m just grousing. But there should be a specific party that details this idea and works with it. I did get it cleared up but it was bothersome.

  3. Yes , there is a person responsible for the Instalment Plan – it is me. I was Finance Manager for Interaction, the last UK Worldcon, this time I’m doing something less onerous!
