    There is going to be a book drive sponsored by MENSA. Now is the chance to rid yourself of all those pesky smart books! :p

    Although I think all books are welcome. ;)

    Just a quick post. We got there late but this is a fun little Con. I was shocked to see how big the Hickory Convention Center is! :eek:

    My little Pesky Jawa had a great time. One person asked her to scurry and she did and they thought it was awesome.

    We've developed a nice rapport with the folks at Starfleet. It's always nice to make friends in other Universes :D

    Thank you to Erelannon who drove me and the Pesky Jawa. It was great to see andyf, royd, Rev_Vader and TR8401 there. I just wished we'd gotten there earlier.

    Thank you TR8401 for including her in helping with the drawing. :)
