Corflu Zed

The Corflu website and Corflu community LiveJournal have been updated, and chair Randy Byers has issued a press release about the 2009 Corflu, to be held in Seattle, including membership rates and hotel information.

Full text of the press release appears after the jump.

Randy Byers: I’m pleased to announce that we have settled the details for Corflu Zed, the 26th Corflu, which will be held in Seattle on the weekend of 13-15 March 2009. Please feel free to repost this announcement far and wide.

The convention hotel is the Hotel Deca, which is located in the University District. This is a lovely old art deco hotel that was built in 1931, around the same time that the first fanzines were being published. The consuite will be on the top floor of the building, with wonderful panoramic views of the city. The University District offers many restaurants and urban amenities within walking distance of the hotel. This is just across the freeway from where the previous two Seattle Corflus were held.

Here are the details:
