The listings on the right side of each page really are the people on the program items for that page -- they were moved along with the rest of the page copy.
We also apologize for any tyops in the program listings; the prufreeders (Patty's five year old twins) don't spel as gud as the rest of us doo.
In order to help with any confusion, we have printed up a quick program reference sheet. It's a single piece of paper with the complete program listed. It should be available later this afternoon at the obvious places (office, registration, and others).
And remember -- quality is job 1.1
Margaret Forsythe is recuperating from bypass surgery. Our prayers and good wishes go out to her and my thanks go to Steve Hutchison for filling in for her.
Mary Rosenblum and Mona Clee have both had severe attacks of real life and will not be here. Mary promised to send Gardner a goat to help him continue with their reading, but the goat was also unavailable.
Greg Abraham has had a family emergency and is hoping, but not sure, to be at OryCon by Saturday.
On a brighter note, Molly Gloss, who has always added a touch of class to OryCon, has reached new heights. We want to congratulate her for winning the prestigious, Whiting Writers' Award sponsored by the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation. This $30,000 award has been given annually since 1985 to emerging writers and Molly is the first Oregonian to receive it.

As noted in the Pocket Program, a "Critique Group Demo" is scheduled for 8 pm Friday evening in the Nestucca Room. Those attending will be able to observe an active group of local professional writers as they conduct a live demonstration of their critiquing techniques. Please note: although labeled a workshop activity, this is open to all interested persons, and is designed as a watch-and-learn activity rather than an audience-participation event.
In addition to the Robert Sheckley workshop scheduled for Sunday morning (which we suspect may fill so fast that if you're reading this and haven't signed up, it may be too late), Northwest author Don McQuinn has scheduled for a Saturday morning workshop (10 am in the Nestucca Room) on how to get your project published.
Please note that the Variety Show begins at 8:00 pm Saturday Evening, not 7:00 pm!
