We awoke this morning to the news that a pipe had burst in the hotel’s plumbing system and water from the 4th floor swimming pool was cascading down through lower levels of the hotel. The good news is that the flood has only hit the area where registration was yesterday, but they are not open today.
The affected area is on the far side of one of the walls of the Dealers’ Room. Our staff has been helping dealers move their stock just in case, but no stock has been damaged. The Art Show is on the far side of the room from the affected area and is in no danger.
As far as we know, the banquet will proceed as planned.
The sales table for next year’s World Fantasy was to have been placed where Registration was. The hotel is busy mopping up right now so they may be able to proceed as planned. We’ll post something as soon as we know where they have set up.
