The Long-awaited Satellite 1 Con Report

Satellite 1 was a small one-day convention at the Campanile hotel in Glasgow, a stone's throw from the SECC, site of the 2005 Worldcon and the 2006 Eastercon. Its theme was the 50th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik 1, the first man-made satellite. I vacillated for some time over whether to go or not - the distance (250 miles) made it impractical to travel there and back in one day. I eventually decided to drive up very early on the day of the con and stay one night, then drive back the next day after doing a bit of sightseeing.
