    Little bit of a sticker shock when I picked up the EIII DVD at Wal-Mart. It came to $21.61 after tax. I thought it was only going to be $15 + tax... Even Deep Discount DVD is only $16.38 w/free shipping, but it's a little late to go with them at this point. So now I'm not quite sure what I want to do for the raffle...

    On the bright side, I got word that my program books are done being printed thanks to Hobart William Smith's printing office. And this evening I should be able to finish cutting out all 944 badges. [face_tired]

    KnightShade reminded me that I never posted the hours for the fan club tables...
    Here are the hours I was trying to cover:

    Friday 6pm-9pm (5pm for set-up)
    Sat 10am-7pm
    Sun 10am-3pm (tear down based on traffic to table)

    I don't know that we have anywhere near enough volunteers for those hours, but as much as we can get covered would be great.

    I am hoping to get there tomorrow around 2pm. I can start setting up the club tables after I have the registration tables. I requested the registration table be put next to The Rebellion's table so hopefully I should be able to help out a bit. The USS Tranquility has twice as many volunteers so I'm hoping they'll be good to go once set-up.

    Big thanks to JediMaster1610 for helping man the table this evening. You did a great job! =D= I'm sorry I didn't have the time to let you know what was going on (raffle, ect).

    Thanks to T_StarFlyer for helping me out at Registration. That did not got at all how I had hoped. [face_frustrated] And tomorrow's not looking like it'll be much better...

    Looking forward to seeing it! :D
    I'll see if I can remember to ask KnightShade to bring his saber with him if he makes it to the con today.
    I have the Masquerade registrations forms over at the Registration desk so don't forget to fill one out.

    I'm already here and can't leave so I can't help you...
    Although at this point (10:20am) there's nothing much to do until Tom, Daria & Diane arrive with all of the table gear that they took home with them.

    OK I will be there from start to finish tomarrow, sunday. I will try to help out with the table, but if I got to pay the $15 plus parking then I am going to get my moneys worth out of the day and do other stuff rather then spend a lot of time around the table. I hope they let us on the Costuming panel. We are not listed for it on the site. It says it is at noon.

    Well, guys I hope things at your end of the Skyway Lobby went well. I'm sorry the costuming panel was such a disappointment.

    I'll post how the raffles did and get pictures uploaded tomorrow hopefully. Now I've got to get to work on all those things I said "I'll worry about that after Astronomicon". :p

    Hi all,
    Sorry I missed the con today. We had a water problem in the basement this morning. I think my boy Nick was playing with the sump pump and jammed it :-(. Anyway Lisa and I had to scramble to save all my Star Wars stuff. I lost 4 - 12" dolls (could've been worse). Anyway we spent most of the day drying out the basement. Hope you all had fun......

    Well I am sorry I could not be there before Sunday morning. Seems like most of the fun went down Fri and Sat. Thats the way it ussually is though. At least I got Bobs signature right before he left, that would ahve really sucked if I missed him. Also it was a joy meeting Steve Bennett. I ahd no idea that he actaully worked on an anime from one of my Favorite writers. The panel could not have been helped. Not much to do with one or 2 people in the audience. I personally had nothing to say about costume contests. Just like everyone else, I was really intersted in talking to newbies about how to start and stuff and talking about costuming in General.

    Oh, man TD-027 that sounds awful, but as you said I guess it could've been worse.

    I just found out that KnightShade was in this morning's paper. I'm going to go out and get a couple copies, but if anyone else gets the morning paper - please save it.

    Yeah, I just came back from Wegmans and bought 3 copies of it. I remember seeing them take that picture of Raven & MadKid. So cool! Makes me wonder what they would've featured had we not been at Astronomicon... ;)

    This Picture

    That picture may possibly be my favorite from all 12 pages... I think it sums up the "Costuming Panel" quite nicely.

    I was so ready to just walk out of the room at many points during this "panel".

    Definitely going to be different next year - if Astronomicon happens next year.
