The illustrious VintaCon hotel liaison called back the manager of Murphys Historic Hotel to secure the contract for the hotel.  The manager, who dave_gallaher stated, "lacked a bit on the customer service end of her job",  had already given away three of the rooms. Lacking  ten rooms minimum, no contract.   So  we regret to inform you that the rooms at the Murphys Historic Hotel are their regular rate.  We have reserved the remaining rooms, and we're looking into alternatives for placement, and overflow.

Meanwhile, I am ever researching for future sites for VintaCon, and although Nancy  C. and Kurt  S. have proposed the Finger Lakes of the New York area,  (for at least four future VintaCons or at least a two week VintaCon).  I think I have come up with something of a wonderfully unique experience for the VintaCon stalwart.

Our hotel site for this yet to be determined VintaCon?   The luxurious Shady Dell in lovely Bisbee, Arizona.  The nearby wineries are in Vail and Elgin.  The name of the yet to be determined VintaCon?

Ask Andy about the distinctive "nose" of the Elgin wine we brought to Gallifrey. Having toured the winerys of lower Arizona, I'd really suggest having the beer instead, although its amazing what you'll buy after you've had a few. We came back with six cases, and its *all* relegated to salad vinegar or cooking wine.

In that case, would you prefer I call it BalsamiCon?

HomConing, since I was born in that neck of the woods.

Scouting in Bisbee
I don't know if you're really serious about a Bisbee Vintacon, but if you are its premiere hotel is the Copper Queen. Just keep away from the Bisbee Grand.

I spent a couple of nights there a few years ago. It's fun place to visit; it really feels of the Old West. It's also a quick drive to Tombstone, for anyone who's really into it.
