Progress Report: 9/22/2019

Con Zine
I'm excited to report that as of today, we have two poems, two squee-worthy images and six stories. Please don't forget about the October 1 deadline. If you have a story you're working on, but you can't make the date let me know so I can anticipate its arrival. If you need some help/suggestions/ideas with your story just ask. Just so you know, I can be persuaded with a Snickers bar.

All submissions, comments and questions go to See you soon!

Hotel Parking
If you are driving into town for the con, parking is available to KiScon 2019 members for $12.00 per day.

SeaTac Airport
If you are flying in for the con, getting to the Hilton hotel is easy. The airport is just across the street. After you land go to the hotel shuttle area and catch the Seattle Airport Hilton Hotel and Conference Center shuttle (SeaTac Hilton shuttle) for the 5-minute ride to the hotel. Make sure you tell the driver you are going to the Hilton across the street.

If you don’t want to wait for the shuttle you can walk to the Link Light Rail Station and then cross the street to the Hilton.

Hotel Dining
The Hilton has an in-house restaurant, Spencer's for Steaks and Chops, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's one of the country's finest steakhouses and offers the best prime beef, succulent chops, and sensational seafood. You can also order from the extensive room service menu and let them bring you something delicious.

Dining in the Area
There are many places to eat within about a mile of the Hilton hotel. There are also many eateries at the airport. Just across from the hotel is the Link Light Rail Station which can take you into downtown Seattle. There you will find a galaxy of great restaurants.
