At Potlatch, people talk to each other and listen to discussions about
writing and reading speculative fiction. Youll find conversations
at programming events, in Clarion-style writers workshops, in the
con suite, in the halls, and in elevators.
Potlatch also sponsors the Clarion West scholarship auction. There
will be a small dealers room. Spontaneous programming (Algonquins)
may generate itself at any moment.
Potlatch Registration will open 4 p.m. on Friday! There will probably be an informal party on
Thursday evening at the hotel.

About the Banquet
The Potlatch banquet will be held on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. We have been
successful in reducing the banquet price from $22.00 per person to $20.00
per person. (If you have already paid the original price, we'll refund
the overpayment at the convention.)
You must reserve your banquet place now, so please send in the
banquet form with your choice of entrée right away, whether or not you
have already paid for the banquet. Alternatively, send email to
banquet with your choice.
You can choose between: · Half a roasted chicken with herb-cranberry
sauce, garlic mashed potatoes and chef's choice of vegetables · Platter
of roasted summer squash, zucchini, bell peppers, and eggplant, with
basil (vegan) Both choices include a spinach salad with mandarin oranges
slices and toasted almonds. You can choose your dessert at the banquet:
we'll have a chocolate mousse and an apple-cranberry tart. We're sorry;
the only vegan dessert choice is fresh fruit.
