According to reports afterwards, one of the highlights of the convention was Rusty Hevelin's "first draft" showing of slides from his DUFF trip. Instead of the usual banquet, Windycon II had a Sunday morning brunch, at which George R. R. Martin was presented with the Hugo he won at Aussiecon for "A Song for Lya."
