In previous years, FOGcon offered a Saturday night dinner buffet for members who don't want to venture into downtown Walnut Creek, or who want to dress up (or not) and hang out with other con-goers, or who just like wonderful food at great prices (embrace the power of "and"!). Special added bonus: no awards, no speeches, instead, we'll be talking with one another through the entire event.
Last year, the Marriott substantially revamped its banquet menus and pricing. After reviewing our options, the Concom decided to host an Unaward Lunch Banquet on Saturday afternoon. The price should be equivalent or cheaper than anything our attendees would find in the hotel or surrounding area, and it still offers us the opportunity to have everyone share a pleasant meal together without having to venture out, wait for large group tables, or miss that afternoon panel you're dying to go to.
