Constellation Con

(Did you mean a Worldcon, New Zealand, Nebraska or Huntsville convention or a clubzine?)

Constellation Con '83 was a convention held February 18-21, 1983 at the Empress and Harbour Tower Hotels in Vancouver, BC. The GoHs were Damon Knight, Kate Wilhelm, Bjo Trimble, Jerry Pournelle, Larry Niven, Syd Mead, and David Gerrold.

File 770 #43 p13 reports that Paula Johnson published in Atrazine that the convention had lost $10,000 and had 300 members wanting refunds. She reported that the person responsible for the loss had made pretty much all the standard neo errors, including signing a bad hotel contract, grossly overestimating income, not actually having a committee with him, and lying when asked.
