    I am meeting with a reporter for a feature article and photos about the Tidewater Alliance and our Galacticon. Special thanks to Gina (Yaddle) for submitting the advertisements. The article comes out on Thursday in the Beacon. This is awesome advertising for the Con!

    The article will be out in the Beacon on Thursday.

    In other Galacticon news we have had another Vendor sign up. The Vendors are looking good.

    We have a dress reheasal for the Lighsaber demo and AV team on Wednesday. Only the fighters need attend but there will be a few Coordinators on hand as well. Two of the fighters are on board and I will contact the other two asap.

    Our dress rehearsal went well. Good job guys on the effort in practice. Media had a few glitches but were ironed out and will look great.

    Our Vendors are looking good and there will be some fine displays on hand.

    The article is out in todays Beacon. It prominently mentions both Galacticon and The Tidewater Alliance. We will have to begin a scrapbook on our press.

    Now the only thing left to do is have Galacticon. See everyone on Saturday bright and early.
