I am absolutely elated that we have 9 members attending Dragon Con 2003. It will be exciting to experience it through some fresh eyes. A handful of the Fandom Menace have never been to Dragon, and one of us has never been to a Con at all! I would like to take a second or two to express my sadness that the Senator will not be joining us. Chris, you will be missed. You are a large part of why the Menace is still in existence. The New Menace Order is progressing rather well, and we have preliminary plans through December 2004. Anyone who may be in "limbo" is always welcome to come home and enjoy our improvements. (Just a hint: one 2004 event will be a Fandom Menace anniversary party to be hosted by Andy "Partyman" Miller, the newly appointed Master of Ceremonies.) I look forward to meeting some new friends this weekend. The Force will be with us . . . always.
