    Ok....

    While the con is still several months away an no contracts have been signed or anything concrete agreed to yet three Star Wars contacts have been made and interest expressed! Meriwyn spoke to them and I am happy to say All three wish to be kept informed and have expressed more than passing interest in appearing. Of Course, I will keep everyone informed as soon as any appearance is agreed upon. :D

    In my dreams here, I have seen the destruction of the Jedi. The death of the Republic. I have seen the Temple in ruins, the Senate smashed, and Coruscant itself shattered by orbital bombardment from immense ships of impossible design. I have seen Coruscant, the seat of galactic culture, become a jungle far more hostile and alien than any on Haruun Kal.
    I have seen the end of civilization.

    The latest news is Kenny the K from K & S promotions who puts on Super Mega Show caused all kinds of BS for us and as a result we have had to move the date to April.

    He threw the equivalent of a 5 year old's tantrum with us and the hotel and harassed my partner to no end. I tried to talk to him and reason with him but there is no resoning with someone with the mentality of an angry child.

    He can get a nice size 14 foot up his temper-tantrum @$$.

    Ok..I had forgotten we already had someone to cover the volunteer coordination. I was tactfully reminded AFTER I made my last post. :D

    We Do, however need someone to handle managing the program track. They will need to work with me on setting it up but they will basically be responsible for overseeing it. Again if interetsed contact meri or myself.

    We need a content writer!

    The convention needs someone to take the basic outline of what we need said on our website and write it up so that it's attractive to our site visitors. This requires the use of spell check and good writing skills. This is a volunteer position. Anyone interested contact myself or Meriwyn. Thanks! :D
