Woo hoo! I've just committed to attending my first Shore Leave ever. 2014 is my year! Finally
seeing the USA in a season other than the middle of winter!
In the 80s and 90s I attended (and even hosted as MC) many Aussie conventions, and managed to be in New York the same weekend as a Creation Con in January 1984. So I kinda know what to expect.
All tips for a successful convention gratefully received! Thank you!
