I just found out this afternoon -- the con is going fine, by the way; although (half by choice) I've spent the vast majority of it inside a single hotel room, working on the newsletter and catching up with the Jackal Pack -- that for my unceasing work on behalf of a decade's worth of BayCon newsletters, I've just been named a "Friend of BayCon," one of less than a hundred people in a quarter-century convention's run that has received the honor.
The practical upshot is that I apparently get a free lifetime con membership as a thank-you for all my hard work. Plus a nifty little black ribbon to attach to my con badge.
Maybe it's a hint to take a convention off one of these years and actually wander around doing nothing but enjoying the thing. ;-)
