|15 of us played 10 games, including new person Pauline (friend of Fina).||
I'm going to Kalifornio in the morning, so I'm quickly getting this RussCon Report out before leaving! Whendy & I will be visiting Sea Biscuit in San-Francisko. I'm also looking forward to checking out the monthly saturday meeting of the San-Franciska Esperanta Regiona Organizo! And fear not, for we return Tuesday, so RussCon will continue as usual next Wednesday September 10.
A reminder that this coming Sunday September 7 is the first Sunday of the month and therefore it's the beginner's meeting at Esperanto club (at 3pm); I'm not sure if it's at Texspresso or Flightpath, check the eoklubo retpoŝtlisto to be sure. Sadly I won't be there of course since I'll be in San-Francisko. I keep having trips keep me from these English-speaking monthly beginner meetings (the first sunday of August I was at the gokongreso...)
And in the spirit of MarkH's Meta Game, I'll give a mystery prize to the first person to correctly email me the name of the boardgame from which I scanned images of Kalifornio and San-Francisko for this RussCon Report, without referring to game libraries, the web, or other research... (No, the prize will not be the boardgame itself. Or maybe it will. It's a mystery!)
The Willow Band (the new project of Clandestine bagpiper EJ) was good fun, though there were only a couple dozen folks in the audience. As EJ said, "You're discovering us!". Also, Whendy & I enjoyed Guy Maddin's Dracula; if you like ballet, silent films, or weird funny strange odd films, you should definitely check it out at the Dobie (Thursday may be its last day!) Our Most Assiduous Reader may recall that I enjoy silent films, so I really like seeing this seemingly insane Canadian director's modern films done in the silent film tradition.
