The last tweaks have been made to the panels for ApolloCon. I had one panel added to my itinerary at the last minute due to a cancellation by another panelist. Here is my schedule ("M" denotes Moderator):
Friday. 6 p.m. - Tucson room - Soapbox Panel: Get it off Your Chest with Lou Antonelli, Rosemary Clement-Moore (M), Derly N. Ramirez II, Pat Virzi.

I have to say this is a great schedule for me. I don't like to travel, so my attitude is that if I schlep myself to a con, the more I have to do the better, and this is a great itinerary - six panels in three days, running from 6 p.m. Friday until 2 p.m. Sunday. They are spaced out well and on good subjects. I'm also the moderator for three of them.
Normally I wouldn't be able to take three full days for a con, because of my work schedule at a daily newspaper, but I'm taking a week's vacation and splitting it between home duties and the con.
This will be my first ApolloCon.
