    Per jedigal's request, below is the e-mail address to Kristine Gerber of Midlands Marketing who pulled the plug on AlpahCon and fired Dan Lundquist.

    But before I post them, a bit of news. Dan is looking into getting independent investors to support next years con. However, since Midlands Marketing owns the AlphaCon name, it will be called AlphaOmegaCon 2002. Whether you attened or not, you should write Kristine Gerber and tell her what a terrible decision she mas made. Also, it'd be cool if people could write Dan and tell him how much you wanted to come and that you would like to attend 2002 if it happens, based on what you've heard from those that did attend.

    So, without further ado, here are the e-mail address:

    Kristine Gerber - kristine.gerber@owh.com

    Dan Lundquist - Djlldl@aol.com

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks, V2K!

    I will write to both. I would think it would smart to hold the next Alpha(Omega)Con well after the movie opens next year. It could never expect to compete with Celebration, and if it takes place afterwards it will be able to showcase a lot of new stuff that wouldn't be available prior to the release of the film. And people who missed Celebration II will get another chance at a good SW con.

    Exactly. They plan to hold in September 20-22, 2002. That should give it enough time after Celebration 2.
