      I have all the con programs dating back to the second year (there was no program for the 1st year IIRC) at home somewhere, it would just be a matter of digging them out, which I haven't had a chance to do.  And I actually own Matt Busch's painting for that Star Wars cover.  :)
      I believe I know who did all the covers - what was the image on the back cover of the '99 program? 
      As for the 10th anniversary question - the reason it was "celebrated" two years in a row was that the 10th convention (in 2002) was erroneously called the 10th Anniversary.  In other words, if you get married, the date one year after your marriage is your first anniversary, not your second.  Likewise, the second year of the convention was it's first anniversary, so the 11th year (2003) was technically the real 10th Anniversary.
      2007 will be the 15th convention, but only the 14th anniversary of the first convention.

      take a look in the photo section. folder called con covers.

      I only have the last 10. ahh the memories..thanks for asking!
      any help from con fans on the credits for the '99 back cover. (not
      inside of program)
      2001 had another cover "Star Wars" dont have that one.
      Notice the "10 Anniversary" on both 2002 and 2003!!! Is 2007 the 15th
      or 14th??
      Most of the original art was sold at the Make-A-Wish auctions on the
      Saturday of the shows! Promoters own most of them!!!

      does this mean a Grell cover this year??
      sure hope so, would love to see that in the charity auction!!!
