    I'm THERE! I knew there was some sort of Anime con in Portland... This just proves that I'm not crazy (since I never actually went and looked it up).

    I think this would be a GREAT recruitment oppertunity for the Maine fan force. I'm going to look into getting a table. We could hold a raffle like Boston did at Super Mega Fest.

    Also, we can get the 501st and Rebel Legion in on it. I'm going to ask some NEG members what the best way about getting a table reserved for free is, and how us 501 and RL members can get hooked up with con passes.

    Would anyone be willing to man the table if we got one for fan force? I could obviously do it part of the time... On the day when the 501st is there though (I'm assuming it would be Saturday), I'd be running around with them. We could all take shifts though.

    So who else is in? Props to you, Keith, for bringing this to my attention! :)

    Sounds good... I'm going to look into what they have to offer. If they are renting out tables, I think we should pool together for one. I'm also going to find out how the NEG usually goes about presenting themselves to conventions.

    Do you got to buy tickets in advance?
  22. Abhors Elder Guest

    Member Since:
    You don't need to, but of course there might be discounts to buy them in advance. Cons usually offer promotions like that.

    Keith, I sent you an email earlier in the week, and also sent a PM over at Alderaan Base with the same content. Did you get that? Thanks :)

    Sooo ... what happens at these things? What do i need to go, can I just show up (after buying a pass of course) or do i need some special skills?

    Where do you meet all the people? I get that there are tables but what are at the tables?

    in other words can someone who has gone already make a very long and winded post for me to read? I would appreciate it. i do not need a hotel room for sure as I am a 30 minute drive if the cops ain't lookin'.
