Philadelphia’s Scratch Bacharach thinks fandom could stand some improvement: he’d like to get some people together to discuss what needs to be done. Says Scratch:
Since joining Anticipation, I have been talking to many Fans and not a few Pros. I have come to understand that some readjustments are desirable within Fandom at large.
I am therefore convening a meeting of interesting people in Philadelphia at a downtown hotel on December 12, 2009.
This gathering will have a working title of; The Relevance of Fandom to the Twenty-First Century. I have my ideas on this (as many of you know, I have ideas on almost anything) but they are only as valid as anyone else’s at this meeting.
There will be two sessions, one on Saturday afternoon and one on Sunday morning. I would ask, if you plan to attend; to remember why you got into Fandom in the first place.
The rooms at the hotel will not be blocked but will be booked by the individual and I suggest that attendees use a hotel and travel dot com agency.
For more information, I may be contacted firstname.lastname@example.org and I will return a telephone call. I talk better than I type.
