2019 CCCS Phoenix Convention, Saturday lunch option.
At last years convention, the hotel restaurant didn't serve lunch on Saturday. That resulted in several attendees not eating lunch because the local restaurants were crowded and they had to get back to the hotel to catch the tour bus. I envision the same problem this year, our hotel dosent serve lunch on Saturday either.
The hotel catering have given us an option so attendees won't have to leave the property for lunch. Box lunches can be pre-ordered at the cost of $18.50 each which includes the service charge and tax.
The box lunch choices are:
1) Ham and Swiss sandwich.
2) Roast Beef and Cheddar sandwich.
3) Turkey and Provolone sandwich.
The box lucch also comes with chips, fruit cup, cookie, and a beverage choice (soft drinks or Lemonade).
Payment can be charged to your hotel room, or you can pay by cash or credit card. If you wish to participate, your order must be submitted by October 1st.
Just email Bruce at email@example.com with your payment option, sandwich and beverage choice.
The Grandmaster Fiction Writers Roundtable
The Grandmaster Fiction Writers Roundtable is something that
the CCCS experimented with at the 2006 convention with some
The roundtable is designed to be an informal critique and discussion
group. Space at the convention location will be provided for
this continuing event. All levels of writers interested in the
adventure genre are welcome and a limited number of participates
will be accepted.
Prior to the convention, participants will submit a chapter
or short story (adventure-related genre) and will be given copies
of each others work beforehand. The roundtable will begin with
the moderator determining the time available for the critique
and discussion process of each chapter/story. Each writer will
be asked to give a very brief overview of his/her submitted
writing, its history and thought-process. Each piece of writing
will be read and discussed, followed by other roundtable writers
giving a non-judgmental critique. Comments and suggestions on
how that particular piece of writing might be improved for future
use and publication will also be provided. This process will
continue until all works have been presented and discussed.
Non-participating observers may be present as space permits
and (at the discretion of the moderator) take part in critiques
