So, as I understand it, the Chicago Faire will NOT be at the Evanston Library but at one of the hotels and run from Thursday through Sunday. What does Hal say about this? Is he still in the picture? I haven't seen any input from him or Vic about these recent arrangements. Let me know when there is something a bit more concrete.
No, you misunderstand.
What I have secured is NOT the Faire. It is a ancillary event held as companion to the Faire, with the hopes that it might be eventually be given its blessing to be an official part of the Faire. Per my previous message:
Also, this is obviously NOT an official CTIUG joint and I do not want it to be confused as such -- this is an extra event to provide a gather of people to participate in activities which do not otherwise jive with the normal schedule of the Faire. I would love nothing more than to hand it over next year to be included in the official Faire schedule.
The room block I have secured, however, is available to all Faire attendees who wish to take advantage of the group rate, and this extra day event is, of course, open to all.
It is absolutely NOT my intention to undermine CTIUG, Hal, or the Faire.
