Science Fiction Convention
October 10-12, 2003
Columbus Day Weekend
October 10, 2003, Roaring Brook does not have Internet access, so we will not be able to update this web site during the convention like we did last year. This is the last update before Albacon 2003 is over. Enjoy the con.
October 10, 2003, Joe Berlant reports "Construction on Northway [ed. I-87 north of NYS thruway Exit 24] just north of Exit 13. Coming back tonight, [ed. Thursday] around 8:30, there was a short line of backed up traffic going north. They were setting up the lights when we went up at 6:30 but only had 1 lane closed for a short distance not really delaying traffic. No problems coming south." Thank you for that info, Joe.
October 9, 2003, Schedule is complete.
October 9, 2003, Schedule updated with Friday and Sunday Programming. More to come.
October 8, 2003, As a warning, traffic on I-87 just north of the NYS Thruway Exit 24 interchange tends to be heavy from 4pm until 6pm. This seems to be especially true on Fridays! If you expect to be hitting the Exit 24 interchange during those hours, plan on adding 30 minutes to the trip. Exit 24 is where the NYS Thruway transitions from I-87 north to I-90 west, so you have lots of workers from Albany heading north on I-87 to get home, and many vacationers getting off of the Thruway and heading north.
