Here’s an amusing little anecdote from someone in our community who has hotel-liaison’ed multiple times in the past:

A Swancon hotel contract contained a description of what the hotel would provide for the tea, coffee etc. station. This was supposed to include a tin of Milo.

Due to a typo, the hotel signed a contract in which they agreed to provide us a ton of Milo.

That’s about 907 kilograms — at current prices worth around $10,000.

Sadly, we never collected.

About australian sf-history

ASFDAP was set up in 2011 after the rediscovery by the wider SF community of an impressive hoard of Australian SF community related ephemera, fanzines and other materials in the Murdoch University basement.
