I'm not sure how many of our members are based on the west coast. I know we have some Colorado and Texas and North Carolina and also Europe and GB. I think maybe kojax is in your neck of the woods, but he never struck me as the convention going type.
I know that Paleoichneum and GiantEvil are in my neck of the woods. Not sure about kojax though. Apparently this WorldCon sci-fi convention draws in nearly ten thousand people from around the world every year. This year's one was in London.
