On the off chance you're not part of the westercons community, I've got a bit of news for you.
We're bidding Granzella's Inn in beautiful Williams, California (in the Sacramento Valley Olive Country) for Westercon 2013. There's (almost no) information at westercons and at our Facebook Group. Still, it's probably more information than you'll get from the Portland bid's website.
Yes, we're in this to win the election. Vote Granzella's Inn in Wine Country for Westercon 2013!
