Tom authorized Doll Gilliland and Kent Bloom to negotiate with that hotel for WSFA's DATCLAVE.

DC IN 84
MIKE WALSH announced the demise of the DC in 84 bid, due to the failure of the Con rotation proposal. There would be a post-mortem meeting, to discuss the possible transfer of the money, etc to the as yet un-named bid for Baltimore in 83, backed by many WSFans, BSFans, Uniconers, etc.
Dissension over the name of this event was put to rest by the president, who polled the meeting for their preference. The vast majority preferred DATCLAVE. Kent Bloom suggested that the former presidents of WSFA be each given a free member8hip to DATCLAVE. Tom Schaad polled the membership and they were in agreement, and has decided to do so. This would include: Bill Berg, George Scithers, Banks Mebane, Bob Pavlat, Jay Haldeman, Alexis Gilliland, John Huff, and and other presidents of WSFA.
Tom reported that the Sheraton Park would be asking for a $55.00 single room fee and wanted a guaranteed room-night figure and therefore did not seem a good bet for the 1980 convention. The Shoreham Americana is already booked. Joe Mayhew, Tom, and Doll Gilliland have investigated other possibilities and the best bet seems to be the Crystal City Marriott, which is offering $34.00 single, $39.00 double. However limited convention space is a factor and we would have to make unusual Huxter arrangements such as having the Huxters sell out of their rooms, which would be booked in block.

Figures supplied by Bill Berg, WSFA Treasurer.
The WSFA JOURNAL will try to come out for the second regular meeting of each month, i.e. the third Friday. It will continue to publish the minutes, treasury activity and other official club information. Some of that is necessarily dull. Yea, even boring.
But I want the JOURNAL to be of interest, not only to fannish archeologists, but to some of the people who it is designed for. So, I am soliciting material. I will not publish fiction. I will not delay the publication for anything. There will continue to be four pages and no more but I'd like to fill them with interesting things. In the past we've published cartoons, fanac reports, reviews of books and movies, convention information and post-mortems. I'd like to cover up-coming events and more news of the fannish world. But all of that depends on you. My ideas, while brilliant and even staggering, aren't the only ones I'll print. If you disagree with anything in the journal and wish to rebut it, put your ideas in writing (brevity is next to godliness) and we'll try to print them. My Old wide-mouthed Underwood doesn't make as clean copy as Somtow's IBM Selectric. Is there something better available? Who'll help?
This space could have been filled with some exciting stuff of yours!
