IN MEMORIAM:   Our chairman, Paul Anik, passed away in January 2009. Left Coast Crime 2010 is dedicated to his memory.


THE FIRST T-SHIRT IS ON THE FO’PAWS WEBSITE!  More will be posted throughout the weekend.  I am not sure how many designs they will have available, but take a look.  You can pre-order, and pick them up when you arrive, or order them right at the convention and pick them up the next day!  The website is www.fopaws.com


BRING YOUR UMBRELLAS!   There’s been a lot of rain recently, and we’re hoping that if you show up prepared for rain, we won’t have any. 


OPPORTUNITY QUILT:  A picture of the opportunity quilt is up on the website.  Check it out.  The quilt will also be on display at registration.  Tickets are $2.00 each, or 6 for $10.00, cash only please.  Thank you. 




Daylight Savings Time:  Don't forget! Daylight Savings Time begins at 2:00 a.m. Sunday, March 14.  Set your clocks ahead one hour.


Program grid is up! Take a look and plan your trip. 


Meet the Authors Wine & Cheese Social:  In conjunction with Left Coast Crime/Booked in L.A., Sisters in Crime Los Angeles, and Metropolis Books, cordially invite you to our “Meet the Authors” Wine & Cheese Social Friday evening, March 12, 2010, 6 to 8 p.m. Metropolis Books, 444 S. Main St., Los Angeles CA, (Just three blocks from the Omni Hotel)  Our Guest Host is Lee Child.  Guest Authors are Toni L.P. Kelner, Don Bruns, Jacqueline Winspear and Parnell Hall.  YOU  MUST HAVE YOUR LEFT COAST CRIME 2010 BADGE TO GET INTO THIS EVENT!


Awards Banquet?  Michael Connelly event at Angels Flight?  Walking Tours?  How do you register for these events?  You register for the convention – they are included.  There will be sign up sheets for the walking tours at the registration desk.  There is no sign up necessary for the Michael Connelly reception at Angel’s Flight – it is a first come, first serve affair. 


Forensic Science Day is NOT included in your registration. 


What is the dress for the Awards Banquet?  Business Casual.  Thank you. 


Need a roommate?  Contact our roommate coordinator at lbwriter@gmail.com.


Pictures of Paul Anik:  We are looking for pictures of Paul Anik to make a tribute board.  If you have pictures of him that you’d like to share, please bring them.  You can also email copies to me.  We will be putting together a collage, a memory board, to give to his wife after the convention.  Thanks. 


Volunteers:  While you’re checking out the program grid and making plans, look to see if there is an hour our two you could spend as a volunteer.  Every panel needs a volunteer to be a room monitor.  The auction room needs volunteers.  The signings need volunteers.  And more.  Once you know when you want to volunteer, please contact Linda Nakamura at lindalcc2010@gmail.com.  Thanks.


Auction:  I’m not telling.  You’ll just have to come and see all the wonderful things we have.  Come prepared to be tempted.


See you all soon!
