    Is Jose coming? If he is coming he speaks Spanish, he's from Mexico.

    I'm sure it would be nice to have someone else there who speaks Spanish, but your English is good, and I hope you won't feel embarrassed to talk to us. Please stop at our table and say hi.

    I took mine with a digital camera. The pic is in my sig. For anyone who doesn't know, I'm a big fan...and yesterday I made the biggest idiot of myself. Flustered, babbling incoherent answers to his questions, and shaking as the photo was taken, Ray Park now knows I am the biggest nerd he has ever met.

    I can't wait to see some of the costumes tomorrow!

    Drew (DarthZone), Noah (TurtleTrooper), Roman (OdinVII), Elishua (too young to be on boards!), and I made it to the banquet. Roman, Noah, and Elishua stayed for the food and then ran off to video games. Drew and I stuck around for the whole thing (apart from me going back and forth to check on Elishua) and really enjoyed it. Thanks for inviting us.

    I noticed several people were taking pictures. Is there anyway to access those? I forgot my camera in the car for most of the convention... :oops:

    A great big shout out and woot! to those who helped make the Comicon and Banquet a success.=D=

    I think that everyone had a lot of fun at the banquet and SWAP was able to earn several hundred bucks for the SAGO mine fund.[face_dancing]

    Thanks to everyone who donated an item to the charity basket.:D

    Thanks and kudos to SWAP for all their work on the banquet and Comicon panels!

    Congratulations on the awards you took home and for having one of your Padawans achieve Knighthood.

    I'm going to be uploading my pics soon and will post a link here (and in multiple places) so that others can take a gander at them.

    Its great to hear that folks enjoyed the weekend. I've got the photos taken on my camera (thanks Allie, Stacie and Zero for the extra photographer help) and they just have to be put up on the photobucket account. Which will happen soon. Really.

    Many, many thanks to everyone who worked on making this weekend a success. And a w00t to everyone that came.


    And kilts are very hot. Here's a whole website dedicated to the glory that are [link=http://www.hometown.aol.com/brvhearts/]kilts[/link].

    I got so sidetracked by the kilts I forgot to mention . . .

    We raised $192 for the Sago Miners Fund! Yippee! If there's no objection from SWAP, I'll write the check out for an even $200.

    The winner was Danielle Lalewicz, from Buffalo NY. Congrads! And thanks to Darren for delivering the basket for us and saving us the shipping costs. :)
