The convention was famously bureaucratic, and many felt that it represented the apotheosis of the Columbus Cavalry. It was also noted for having something like 8 color gradations in its badges, providing a set of fine ranks from the bottom (attendee: black) to the top (senior committee: white). (Elliot Shorter commented on this!) Red, green, blue, and yellow -- at least -- were in between. It was also a bit famous for its lines: First for Registration, then to pick up a Masquerade ticket, and then again at the Masquerade to use the ticket.
Scientology was busy: There was a large mock-up of Battlefield:Earth on the stage as well as a billboard advertising it on the main road from the airport to the convention site.
