We will toast a Benden White to Anne McCaffrey at 5pm on Thanksgiving Day
wherever you are and give thanks for the ten borrowed years.
I and my wife have been coming to Dragon Con every other year now since 2005 and love it! Although I may be just a bit bias I think the folks of the Anne McCaffrey's Worlds Track (AKA Weyr Fest) are some of the best!
The last time we came (2009) we were given the honor of carrying the banner for the group in the Dragon Con parade, I noticed then that it might be easier to carry the sign if it were attached (non-permanently) to a pole of some sort.
This year we will have a little weyrling in tow so we will be driving to Atlanta and thus have a bit more room to bring stuff. If nobody minds I would like to fashion something to carry the sign and to help make it more visible to folks in the crowd. (This is by no means a bid to carry the banner again this year, just to make it easier for whoever does get chosen).
All I would need are the dimensions of the banner and what material it is made of (I remember it being a light weight cloth last time). If that sounds good pass the word on to me here or tweet me on twitter (Silvanus).
