Hi guys! Okay, our very own local sci-fi/fantasy convention will be happenning out in the Valley next month. I, for one, will definitely be in attendance! Probably wearing armor (fantasy style with chainmail, sword, etc) most of the time, but I might soften it up a bit and strap on one of my lightsabers from time to time. Anyway, I was wonderring if we should plan on doing anything specifically regarding it. It could be a great way of recruiting new people. We would have to contact them (the convention organizers) about getting a table/booth organized, and outfitted if we were to try that. As far as outfitting goes, since we're really new and don't have anything like cool pictures of past activities, we'd probably have to go with something like a stand-up display (possibly with our soon to exist local icon * hint-hint, Nat * and a few other SW related graphics) and (if I can find the time to build it) maybe a plexiglass display case with my lightsabers. And of course at least two of us there at any given time in costume. That should at least turn a few heads for a second or two. Also, at our first meeting, Kelli (at least I think it was her) had expressed an iterest in doing some kind of volunteer work. InCon is always more than willing to welcome volunteer help. I've been told that it's fun to volunteer for them. If we do it as a group, all the better. They could cut us a deal for memberships to the convention, or even for table/booth space. Now, granted, InCon isn't as big and grand as conventions in other cities, but at the very least, it's just fun to attend the convention and be out and about and not feel like the freakiest person in the room! Speaking of rooms, I already have one reserved at the hotel where InCon will be taking place. It would make a convenient staging area from which we could launch our campaign of total conquest and the annihi... < ahem > Perhaps I'm getting a bit ahead of myself..... So, what do you guys think? EDIT: If any of you are interested, we can see about getting together so you can make lightsabers of your own in time for InCon. I recently bought a drill-press which (along with all the other tools that I have) will make the whole process a whole lot easier. Plus I'm building a set of "saber clamps" so that more than one person can easily be working on their sabers at one time.
