Some hotel prices are only available for a limited time, and since Jyväskylä is usually quite booked during the Jyväskylä Summer festival anyway, it is a good idea to reserve your room early.
The programming starts at 10, and lasts until around 2 in the afternoon. Attendance is free. More info on Enhörningen or on Rasecon’s Facebook page.

Eurocon will take place in Stockholm in June 2011. GoHs are Elizabeth Bear and Ian McDonald, fan GoH Jukka Halme. Plenty of Finns are attending and a group trip will be arranged so this will probably be the easiest way to attend Eurocon in a good long while.
The nature of BaCon is very informal: watching movies, hanging around, and eating (food will be available at cost). Definitely bacon, but there will also be a vegetarian alternative.
Questions and inquiries to Vilgot Strömsholm.
Tomorrow will be the second “whisky mafia” where we gather at Kerttulin kievari (around seven) to sample their fine selection of whiskies in good company. Everybody is welcome there as well.
