    The library has no problem with everyone leaving their displays and merchandise over night with the understanding that there will be no guard on site. All rooms will be locked. Displays set up in the hall will be locked up in the auditorium.

    Hey Everyone, I'm Matt Francella.

    I just wanted to update you with all the information I have for Gaming at Galacticon, and Hoping to get some information from you as well.

    Saturday 9am-11am- Set up and league sign up

    11Am-5pm- casual play and Demos. Also a good time te meet other players and to buy sell and trade pieces for your collection. I should have a small amount of starter sets, and booster packs available, to get people started in the game.

    12Pm-3pm -150 Point Tournement with Prizes for everyone. Please bring a map and a ready made squad. If you don't have a map a limited number of maps will be available. If you don't have a squad ready, please attend early so that we can help you get set up. 10 dollar entry fee, that goes toward the prizes.


    Sunday- 12pm -5pm- Casual Play and Demos


    2pm-5pm- 200 point team play. Partner up agains 2 opponents. Prizes for everyone!


    This deviated slightly from what Shadow and I had originally planned,but not significantly.


    Now I have a few questions as well, so I can pass on the information to others. Is there and admission fee to the convention? Do you have a website that I can direct people to? Are there any fees I need to pay?

    Anything you can tell me that you think is pertinent will help as well!

    Hello, my name is Adam Zalonis and I am the president of the Peninsula Anime Club (abbreviated as "PAC"). Our group had a table for last year's convention, and we had a really great time. I sent an email out to one of the staff back in January to request one for this year's event. In addition, I spoke with Shadow who actually proposed us to help with a video room of some sort. Our official website and forum can be found at: http://penanclub.site90.com/


    My email address is: Fortoq46@aol.com or you can call me at 757-886-1281. If you would like us to come back, we would be more than happy to support you guys in any way possible! Thank you so much in advance or as they say in Japan, arigatou gozaimasu! ^.^

    Sincerest regards,
    Adam "Fory-san" Zalonis, President of the Peninsula Anime Club

    I posted a lot of flyers all over Webb and BAL at ODU in hopes that a student fan club will respond. So far zip. But had some respnses about the con itself, so there has been a ripple effect.
