    Howdy!

    As a few of you remember the last awards, its that time of year again. This year it is being held at the pittsburgh comicon in april.

    The pittsburgh chapter has been very gracious as to host it for us. there will be a banquet during the awards. So everyone can eat and enjoy the show at the same time ;)

    I am trying to find out how many of you from this area will be attending. I know there are a few from Buffalo and Rochester that are going. However the Syracuse chapter has been very quiet and Im curious how many we can pull together to go.

    Secondly, there are a few awards that we may be interested in trying to get this year.
    We did win the best banner award last time however, we may want to consider a new one. o_O

    Also there is a Fanfilms award. I know there are a few of you in syracuse who have put together some fanfilms... not sure if you want to submit it. Unless u want to take a stab at one for us again? LOL

    at any rate, If there is an interest to attend or help out with the entertainment that would be great!

    Just a reminder to those who may be interested in going to this, hotels are filling up pretty quick.
    Also if you havent purchased your ticket for the FF awards yet you may want to soon so they can get a proper head count for dinner :)

    Thanks!

    *shakes fist at school during the week*

    I free up in May, but until then... ugh. *headdesk* Sorry! I really want to get active with the group again, I feel bad about doing, well, nothing for a long time.

    Uhm, I'm writing a script that has a fanfilm in it, but I don't even know if it'll be written by that time. Already looking feature length-ish...

    Besides, school sucks up a lot of time.

    Do you guys want to use Darth Moby? It hasn't been submitted anywhere...

    It's official, I'm going. Unfortunatly I won't be able to stick around for Sunday, because my flight leaves at like 9am. Prices after that got a bit too high for me. Geekpowers activate!

    I'll be getting into Pitt at 11am, so I'll have the day to bang around the convention. Though because it is a comic convention, I'll probably be wearing a non-Star Wars costume on Friday. Probably something to do w/ anime/manga. Hehehe.
