The Masquerade was held concurrently with the Australia Day Fireworks. Prevailing winds caused the smoke to blow in the open windows, requiring evacuation of the hotel, as the smell/triggering of the fire sensors was mistakenly thought to have been a gas leak. A con member, walking back to their car with the helium tank was pulled over by the police, suspicious of their behaviour. [Paul Andinach, Jack Bridges, Anna Hepworth]
