We'll have the Guest of Honor speeches, which will take about half an hour. There will be one award presentation for the ISFiC Writers Contest. Those are pretty much set in stone.
There've been complaints about the "interminable introduction of guests, many of whom aren't even at Opening Ceremonies". I sympathize with this, but I'm not sure I can eliminate it, since a number of the guests really enjoy it. I'm thinking about asking them to check in at the door so we can just introduce the folks who are actually there -- I'd just need to pass the list to Christian Ready, our Toastmaster, so he could edit his copy. Of course, if someone comes in late, they might get missed, but that's excusable, to my mind. At least it would make it shorter.
The convention theme is "Innerspace". Robert Sawyer is our Author Guest of Honor. And I have a month and a half to manufacture something entertaining.
