    I never complained at all about C 3. I saw everything that I wanted to see, including George. I had a great time.

    I had more fun talking to the SW actors than talking to Joe Schmoe from Oklahoma with his 100 Darth Vaders he bought at the store.

    We all do realize that people go to these events for different reasons, right?

    What did I enjoy more: being mellow about the convention itself, not sweating the lines or store

    ^^^Not Here

    Or hanging out in bars with friends from everywhere on the globe and actors, just like we all do at home,apparently?

    Gosh, I don't know, they were both so great! Convention + Socializing = fun, and much celeb grab-arse.
    Something for everyone. Yes, too many pictures, but there's a point to be made. People spend their time and money for different things. I mean, heck, Dajuan got a table to run and a husband out of the deal.
    Get the next one going, already!

    ^[face_laugh] That pic just brought a flashback to that morning of 10,000 (?) fans standing in the rain on that roof. It was hard to stand there at the time,but it awesome anyway. :D

    Yeah, everyone has different reasons for going to C3. You gotta respect people willing to shell out the bucks and the effort to meet some longtime friends. :)

    Well, I didn't go to C III to get hammered at a bar, but more power to you.

    Oh, and I really only stood in a long line once. If you waited till after noon, you could
    pretty much walk into the con using skyways!

    yeah, that Joe Shmoe was really annoying, wasn't he?

    I for one really hope there is a C4. CIII was my very first scifi con and it was a real learning experience for me, and I know there are many things I will do different at the next one in order to make the experience more enjoyable. Not that I didn't have a great time, but I think I will be better prepared for the next one now.

    2007- 2 years to get ready! Bring it on!!!!

    I've been to a lot of Trek cons, but they were very small compared to C III. I
    will have to go all four days to the next one, even though, I saw what I wanted
    to see at C III.

    I'll be there, after having been at C3 I wouldn't be able to stay at home knowing how much fun everybody else have. My only problem is that in spring 2007 I'm probably having a job that is a mix between employment and voluntary work, and I don't really have the possibility to take time off. Maybe one can hope that it will be on the 25th of May, since then most of my responsibilites would be over, and I would mostly just have to do the regular work stuff.

    If and when C4 happens I will so be there. I saved just enough money last time for all that I wanted. I did get my autographs stolen from me but perhaps C4 will give me a chance to get them back.

    I had a blast there and I wish we knew if there was going to be a C4 I planned the C3 trip two and a half years in advance. Made sure I had plane tickets, admission tickets and a hotel. :) It was great.

    I am hoping to get a hotel at the embassy this time. That was an awesome hotel. I also hope that it is once again in Indy. That is one great place to be. :)

    You can never plan too far in advance for a star wars event. I had plane and room booked over a year in advance. Then of course two weeks before the event Northwest cancelled my flight, man they got an earful!

    That is what I did. I started planning as soon as I heard that C3 was going to happen. Which means I started planning 3 years in advance. I found out the hard way, however, that hotels only book a year in advance lol. So I started saving money, marked my calander (I had to make a calandeer, couldn't find a 2005 in 2002), and prepared for the biggest week in my life. :) It was so cool.

    The funny thing is I decided to go to C3 while I was first in line to see Ep2 opening night. :) That is a hobby of mine. I waited in line for 2 days to see EP3. I live in a small town and it is a big deal here. I have been given the name CloneQueen because of my Star wars fedish.

    The whole trip including plane ticket, C3 ticket, money to spend on star wars, hotel, ect... cost me around $4,000. That could be because I had to take a flight from Alaska, which, in itself, cost around $800. It is not cheap to leave Alaska.

    I suggest that people who plan to go, save and be prepared for anything. I am not one of those people that plan out a day, but when going to C3 I realized if I wanted to see everything I had to have it planned out. (I missed the trooper olympics because i stood in line for 12 hours the first day to get in and get the toys)
