    Now in our 8th year, CHATTOOINE (FanForce Chapter in Chattanooga, TN) was directly responsible for getting this con started as a few of its members (me included) decided this was a good place for a multi-fandom convention.

    In the past, we've had guests Temuera Morrison (Jango Fett), Daniel Logan (young Boba Fett), Felix Silla (ewok/Cousin Itt from the Addams Family), Chase Masterson, Yaya Han (before she got uber-famous), Larry Elmore, Chandler Riggs, Lloyd Kaufman, Debi Derryberry, and lots more.

    THIS year, we have author Timothy Zahn (I'm sure you've all heard of his Thrawn trilogy and other Star Wars books). We also have Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"). comic artist Tom Nguyen, author Seanan Mcguire, and others (check the website as more are added).

    Beside the guests, we pride ourselves in all the programming available. Our goal from the start was to have enough going on to where you'd have to really choose what to miss. We have nearly 65000 sq ft of space in the Exhibitor Hall, 13 panel rooms, and an entire building dedicated to gaming. We also have a theater which will host several bands and other shows. Film Festival, a dedicated kids track, Big Wheel racing, charity auctions, and our now legendary all-night room party block that takes up the entire 1st floor of the host hotel.

    This year, we've also added a free downloadable app to help schedule your own programming list along with maps, shuttle schedule and other info that should help guide you. Just look up ConNooga in whatever App store you normally get things from.

    Chattooine will of course have a fan table set up. If any other FanForce groups would like to have a table, please e-mail with a request.
