Westercon 64’s Dealer Table coordinator, David W. Clark, informs us that the case of whooping cough that has severely curtailed his activity for more than a month has retreated to the point that he’s working on the final draft of the Dealer Room information letter and application information. As soon as it has been reviewed, he’ll be sending it to everyone who has written to our Dealers@ address. We will also post it on the web site and make an announcement here on the main page when it’s available.
