    I am still on the fence about going on Friday and Saturday. I am never there on Sunday anyway, but is anyone going this year? I am still hoping there will be some good guests to be announced.

    Ill be there, pretty excited about this year.. Last year (my first year) I was at the Hyatt.. wasn't a lot of fun walking back and forth. This year I was actually able to reserve a Balcony room! I plan on having more fun, going to more things and doing more drinking this year ;) The general consensus I've seen from all the other random StarFest posts is that people are crazy anti StarFest ("they've lost their way, we hate them, OH NO ITS ON MAY THE FOURTH ;), they don't support the groups...etc. etc.").

    TLDR: Ill be there and I'm gonna have a helluva time!

    I may be there for a while on Friday to help set up the art room. Also, Robert and I plan on stopping by Saturday to hang out with people=)

    Definite maybe for me on Starfest. This will date me, but I used to go to StarCon too, anybody remember that? And I can remember ALMOST getting an autograph from Patrick Stewart after waiting in line for hours. Ah, the good old days. Like to see how much it has changed or not changed....

    I'll be there hanging out having a drink or two, if others are going.

    I'm in for a pound this year. I'm checking in on Thursday. I'll be leaving early Sunday for Wings

    I'll be there :) Husband is going to have a booth in the dealer's room for his company (Planeswalker's Library - go stop by!), and I insisted on tagging along.

    I always have a great time at Starfest. I think that for most people it's genuinely a case of unfortunate schedule collisions, which is completely fair. Until we invent time travel or the Doctor stops by, we can all only be in one place at a time after all. I've been sad to read some of the negative comments about the con itself, but I don't think they represents the majority opinion here.

    Having said that, I decided to pass this year. I travel to Starfest because it is a fantastic place to spend lots of quality time with my friends, in addition to being a fun con. Since many friends aren't going this year, I will wait and come out another time.

    The schedule change is mostly because Easter falls on their normal weekend. Hopefully it goes back to April next year... of course next year is CVII...

    I'll most likely be there Friday night only to help with the garrison table setup. FCBD and May the Fourth the rest of the weekend. Next year definitely not because of CVII no matter what weekend Starfest falls on (I won't have enough money to go to both). And sorry to poo poo on anyone's enthusiasm for Starfest, but I'm kinda done with them anyway (dealing with the robot area is impossible and stupid, and no other secured area to put my droids in).

    I might be there Friday and/or part of Saturday, but only to hang out in the lobby. I have zero interest in the rest of the con this year. I'll be at WOTR on Saturday. Katie, you should come out to Wings on Sunday. :)

    FYI - Starfest really wanted our presence and RL wanted a table as well but Sunday was a better day for them to man the table. With that being said, RMFF and RL will have a joint table this year in the atrium, Denver County Fair has our old spot.

    I will man the table most the AM on Sat. Anyone that wants to come and hang out with me ... :D I may want someone to grab me a comic book or two ;)

    Awesome! I have an atrium room this year so ill be hanging around at the hotel instead of having to leave to rest. Ill most likely be able to hang out throughout the day on Saturday (and some of Friday).
