    I will be at the dinner and not the signing. I should hopefully arrive at or around 6pm.

    One question: where is the restaurant in relation to the Courthouse Metro stop? I'm going to go ahead and ride the Metro over.

    Or, I could stop by your place, Eugenia and pick you up or at least we can Metro over together.

    Courthouse Metro has a few exits - but the restaurant is basically right in front of one of them. I think it's the Colonial Village one.... Anyhow, it's not so big an area that you won't see where you're going.

    And Mutt, if you want to come by, that'd be grand! We can trek over together. The offer's open to all, of course!

    That might be fun, to trek over together! Although I'd be adding three people so that's too much for one car anyway. ;)

    Ric, Would you like for me to bring a rope? Okay, fine I won't "lead" you, afterall, I'm not Darth_Leader anyway...

    Jeff, if you have problems finding your way just call my cell phone.

    Roger- you have some many names that I was not sure if Darth_Leader was one of them.

    The trek can be in more than one car. Depending on people's preferences - to metro or not to metro...

    I'm driving because I know the area and I don't feel that parking around there on the weekends is that big of a deal.

    If people want to meet at my house and caravan, Ken will split up and go in separate cars seeing how we know where we're going. Just let me know by phone or PM who's coming over so we don't leave without you.

    E, I'll have to get back to you. I am somewhat tempted to meet up with you guys and drive over but I am thinking I should be there to talk to my co-coordinators (is that a word?) before the birth of SlackerCon. Just think, in 48 hours we'll be partying :)

    It will be a day long remembered :D

    Infamous, some might say. A bunch of geeks invading a perfectly nice restaurant, others might say.

    And, hey! How come we didn't get onto the "conventions and events" list on theforce.net? Hmmm? We're a convention! We are!!

    Well tomorrow is the big day and Pittsburg has confirmed that the weather will not stop them though they will be one short.

    Hopefully the 501st contingent and the southern VA group will also be able to make it. Luckily Olsen's and Summers are on high ground so no worries of flooding there.

    Greetings, blokes.

    Oh yes... we'll be there with bells on!

    Literally speaking, of course.

    Jingles like Mr. Bojangles,

    I'll see everyone then! I look forward to meeting those of you I haven't already run into yet!

    I'm sitting about ten blocks from Olsson's at a cafe right now, and it's a sunny, beautiful day. No rain or flood worries here.

    Here's hoping we get a crowd! ;-)

    Well as far as I'm concerned SlackerCon was a success and to all the lovely ladies that attended I'd just like to say that you did not see the real me. I'm actually much, much worse when I'm sober ;)

    You're welcome Tim :)

    And I'd like to think Evan (So. VA), Lori (501st, and Chris (Pittburg) for getting more people on their end to get involved. I'm already looking forward to SlackerCon II :D

    Ric, it was nice seeing you and your wife again! :)

    You did a good job Roger. :) and SlackerCon II will be fun too, I'm sure! :D

    Ken, Eugenia, Jeff, Valerie, Heather, and Roger:

    You guys made me laugh so much! thanks!! It was a great night! :D

    SlackerCon was loads of fun! It's always fun to get together with the GS and it was great to see old and new friends too! I look forward to seeing a bunch of you in a few days at Farpoint, and for those I won't see, I'll have Ken call you up to recite the dinner specials in Old Entish.
