    So the guy never got back to me on tables a couple emails were sent and now all the tables are sold out!

    As you can see the 501st has been invited and will be there in costume.

    well I guess you can view the no table left in two ways... one, it sucks to not have a table and two, at least if all the tables are gone they must be expecting it to be successful.

    or three, Phil had already reserved 2 tables, anticipating this would happen, and paid for them. One is ours, Chris.

    I noticed something about needing a business license for selling and it must be purchased separately from the city. Does anyone need to ck into this as they might not have a business license. Perhaps you only need one if you are selling a certain amount of items, though I doubt it.

    I just wanted people to know that the tales at the comicon are not sold out they have been reserved for people,but some people have not yet paid,so Michael Oliveras they guy who is in charge says that if you want a table you can pay for one not reserve,and then who ever reserved one and did not pay,they may lose out.

    RSA Edit: Phone Number removed to protect privacy.

    got an E mail from the coordinator of the comicon,those of us who have paid for tables can start setting up as early as 7am.
    those of you who are going to put up banners have to use tacks and not nails.
    Just passing on the word.

    I was pretty bummed when I heard about this from Mike at Heroes and Villians, simply because I have to miss it. My band is playing at The Rock the same night.

    From what I hear from folks around town this should be a good time though. Can't wait 'til next year. :)

    That's too bad. It is going on all day, so if you do end up having a free hour or two at some point, you should definitely try to drop by.

    I enjoyed the con and had a good time,I think it went over very well,and I thought there was a good turn out.
    There was a lot of people in different costumes which I enjoyed seeing.
    Next year should be a better and bigger con,I can't wait.

    It was pretty awesome and way above my expectations! Thank you Cat for getting those flyers out hopefully we can attract some new members and perhaps some old. I saw a few people who have been to meetings before but never made it much further.

    Hey,

    It was nice to meet all of you!

    Sorry that I couldn't stick around and chat, we were actually on our way somewhere so I thought that we'd stop by and say 'hello' real quick and then head out.
