A tour of Edwards Air Force Base was organized for Wednesday with a Thursday tour of Rockwell International that included seeing a full size space shuttle mock up. Friday had a three hour panel on sf in which the panelists constantly rotated in and out.  The Friday evening party was held at Forrest J. Ackerman’s home. The Business Meeting was held on Saturday morning, followed by the editors’ panel, a talk by Harlan Ellison, and finally a panel made up of Al Worden and Edgar Mitchell.  Bruce Murray and Robert Forward also gave presentations. Robert Bloch was the emcee and Worden, Murray, and Mitchell all spoke during the banquet.  Arthur C. Clarke, who won for Rendezvous with Rama, was unable to attend, so Robert Heinlein passed around a copy of the book for all present to sign to be sent off to Clarke.  A non-Nebula special award was given posthumously to Edward G. Robinson for his work in SOYLENT GREEN. An unofficial East Coast party was held at the Algonquin Hotel.
