Clarion si muove

Clarion, the easterly of the two eponymous SF/F workshops, is moving out of East Lansing, MI and into beautiful La Jolla, CA. This will no doubt confuse folks as Clarion will now only be 5 degrees east of Clarion West, rather than 38 (the longitudinal difference between Seattle and East Lansing).

Future classes of Clarion will now have to suffer through the highly bearable summers of California--on the the beach no less--with massive distractions of sand, surf, and sun bathers. Gone are the days of bad food, humidity, and rain every friggin day. No, now Clarionites must endure fine cuisine, immpeccable weather, and gorgeous sunsets. I wonder how they'll get any work done at all.

The only downside to the move (besides having to rename it and suffer a total absense of productivity), is that beer is California is not priced at $2 a pint. Future Clarion classes will be far more sober than ours was, which, come to think of it, probably isn't a downside at all.

You mean the rest of our class was inebriated and I still had trouble keeping up with y'all?
