    I was looking through the post and all I saw was a blurb about Dragon Con. I was wondering if while the new TA site is under constuction, is it possible to post the Dragon Con information here ect.

    I think Ashara had all that info.

    It doesn't look possible that I go to this con. I'm pouring heart and soul into my son's education before he's off to middle school (he's having problems reading). So all my money is going into special summer reading programs. Maybe next year...sigh.

    Thad, Chris (Maliss), Rick and I will be heading to Dragon Con at 0-dark-30 on Thursday morning. We will meet up with Wendy and Noel(who are flying in via x-wing and tie fighter),once everyone is settled in. A good time will be had by all.

    Hey guys, was nice seeing you all at Dragoncon

    Ran into Thad a few times, Rick, Dawn, n Deunan once or twice

    Somehow I frequently kept running into Maliss more than anyone else, I was surprised how his awesome Sith costume made him stand out a bit.

    Also Congrats to Maliss for winning the DC 2008 Masquerade! Ethan Phillips (Neelix from Star Trek Voyager) said "He sure wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley!"

    He rocked the house! And his was the best original sith costume there!

    An injustice was done when he got disqulified in the Star Wars Costume contest, a load of BS right there!

    Maliss was great hangin out with ya, and glad I could be of help over the weekend!

    Here's one of the pics we wound up havin together, had the same guy who asked take one with my camera...
    (I touched it up a bit real quick)

    Looks like right now I'll at least be seein Thad at the Air n Scare in October, thats on my calendar, and the Richmond Christmas parade is also out there...

    I don't always remember to check here, but if anything big pops up just give me a holler! JRDJEDI@aol.com

    Thanks Jon for posting about Maliss winning. You beat me to it.

    I had a great time this year. It was much better than I expected.

    Cool thanks for posting about that Jon. It was good to see you as well as a lot of familiar faces that i havent seen in a while. Hope all is well with everyone and now the sucky part. Its over and we have to wait an entire year before it happens again.
