The Society made a strong showing at BayCon 2003 (Memorial Day weekend) in San Jose, California, this year, presenting three well-attended programs. “Heinlein’s Women,” on Saturday evening, and “Heinlein Juveniles,” and “Heinlein 101” on Sunday, were clearly appreciated by the audiences. As is usual with THS-run panels, one hour was just not enough to do the material full justice, and conversations (not to worry; no blood was spilled) continued out into the halls afterwards. Six new members joined.

A large and loud group of THS’ers continued the fun on Saturday night with a convivial dinner at a local establishment.

The Blood Drive was a great success, with sixty-five pints donated the Stanford University bloodmobile, with several volunteers remaining when they ran out of supplies .

Members in attendance over the course of the weekend were: Fred Moulton, John Strickland, Robert James, Bill Patterson, Deb and Geo Rule, Dave Jennings, Brad Lyau, and David Silver.
