[From the press release]
M. Lee Rogers and Ron Zukowski proudly prevent, uh, present the ConFederation 25th Anniversary Celebration!
1. You were an attending or supporting member of ConFederation.
2. You are known to the organizers.
3. Someone known to the organizers can vouch for you.
(The criteria are similar to a fan fund.)
What: A party to celebrate one of Southern SF fandom’s shining moments: the 1986 World Science Fiction Convention held in downtown Atlanta.
When: Saturday June 18, 2011, 12:00 noon to whenever.
Where: Embassy Suites Alpharetta, off Exit 9 of Georgia 400 (Haynes Bridge Road) near North Point Mall.
Why: Why not?!?
How Much: $20 per person. Free for members of ConFederation Executive Committee, SFWA, or ASFA. If cost is a problem, talk to Ron or Mike. Any material surplus will be donated to fan funds–this is a not-for-profit venture.
We realize it’s fairly short notice, but we are trying to work around Dragon*Con and other regional conventions. North Fulton is equally inconvenient to everyone. The area is also accessible via MARTA by train and bus.
The adult beverage situation is BYOB. We will provide as many munchies and soft drinks as we can.
Suites should be available at the hotel. The current rates are around $100 per night. For reservations, call 1-800-EMBASSY.
Please feel free to publicize this event in fandom, but do not publicize it in the local media. It is not open to the general public.
We hope you’ll come celebrate ConFederation with us that Saturday. It should be a fun evening.
It would help if you let us know if you are coming so we can know how many people to plan for. Please RSVP with payment to:

Be there. Aloha.
