Back From Chambanacon

daisy_knotwise, Katie, and I are back from Chambanacon. The most memorable line of the weekend goes to Lisa Golladay who said as we walked down the hall toward our room, "Welcome to Hogwarts!"

The Chambanacon hotel used to be a Jumer's. The decor is baroque in the extreme. I don't think I've ever been in a brocade-lined elevator before. The wallpaper and rugs were busy to say the least.

But the beds were comfortable, the plumbing was fine, and there was plenty of hot water, so that wasn't a problem. The con suite was large and a good place to hang out; the filk room a bit small (but they've promised to adjust that next year).

And we did a lot of singing and had a good time hanging out with catalana, bedlamhouse, ladyat, Juanita, tigertoy, birder2, Art, his fiancee, and many others.

Now we just need to get some more people to show up next year. :)
