SteamCon III Oct 13-16 2011


[October 13-16 , 2011 – Seattle, WA, US]

Flew from DCA to DFW to SEA. Left 2:00pm Eastern and got to my hotel 1:00am Pacific. Ug, so I slept a bit late…

Hotel was nice and huge with people milling around all day and night. I was at SteamCon II and it was so so, but hey, it was their second year. I thought they would get it together this time but sadly, not quite. There was a major lack of party rooms – I mean attendance was in the thousands and there were a whopping 3 party rooms per night. And it had no con suite! I mean really? There was a volunteers’ room that was about 99.999% empty about 99.999% of the time. That could have been a con suite right there. (And you really don’t have to stock it with goodies, just a few snacks so people can gather and mingle – that’s the whole point – so it can be uber-low cost.)

There were two bars in the hotel so people split between the two and there never was a “place to hang out”. Oh well. Maybe next year. A lot of people were there during the day but dissipated into the ether as it got into the evening. Not a good thing. Well, with all of the handicaps that were there, the intrepid people did hang out and have fun.

Here are the pics from the con…
