Anyone from Rochester heading to the Con/Awards?
Just wanted to share this info for those that don't get a newsletter from the Pittsburgh Con.
Anyone with a Grievous statue, get it ready to be signed. He is coming to Pittsburgh. I met him at C3 and seemed to be a very nice person.
Hey all you Comicon Crazies,
The Countdown to Pittsburgh Comicon 2007 is beginning with just days to go, but don't think just because the con is just around the corner that we are resting on our laurels. Oh-no, we still have plenty to announce. Just earlier today we added twenty new guests to the guest list, including:

Thanks for the heads up! I hadn't read that yet.
Matthew Wood is a pretty cool guy. I saw him at CIII as well as CNSFX and both times he was great.
I wish we could afford to go to all great cons this year, but we're not doing PCC this time around.
I encourage everyone to head over to this thread
to check out the 3 FanFilms that were submitted for the NE FF Awards.
Now that we finally got Connor his own PC, I don't have to worry about sharing PC time but now I lost my speakers and have to wait until I can get on his PC to listen to the fan films.
just checking to see if anyone is going to this from rochester?
It sounds like the FanForce part of this events went well - North Ridge took home many awards this year, but I haven't seen the complete list of winners yet.
Unfortunately, I've heard that the Comic Con part was a disappointment - to comic fans at least. There were a dozen guest cancellations (I know Michael Turner was one of them due to his health) and there was a much smaller dealer selection that at past PCCs.
Oh well, I'm sure it would have still been more fun than cleaning my garage.
I will post winners tonight when I get home
Congratulations team! The Rebellion won the Leia award again this year!
The Leia award is given out to chapters who have been actively involved in charity events within their own community and have contributed to their chapter's hometown in some way.
Awesome , Great news!
