the con pretty muched sucked this year! why they dont spend the money on
half a dozen well known artists an writers and not worry about the small
press so much, (nothing against the little guys) but ive rarely seen anything
remotely interesting that i would buy from them.the con has grown weaker
an weaker over the last 5 years with the last 2 years being a downward spiral
that they may not recover from.

I found it kind of dissapointing too, honestly. There was nothing
there I wanted to buy at all. I missed several dealers that didn't
come back from years past. I hate how some of the artists get all in
your face trying to sell you things. Makes me uncomfortable and so I
tend to just avoid that whole back area of the room. The actors' talks
I went to were alright. That was why I didn't stop in for the yahoo
meet, wanted to go to the Star Wars actors discussion. One thing I'm
most dissapointed in is that the costume contest seems like it's going
to be run 100% the same way it has been in the past, from what the
booklet says, with no effort at improving it at all. So I'm probably
not going to enter it. I might not even bother to wear a costume
Sunday. I'm not going tomorrow at all. All in all, I really don't feel
like the con's worth the admission price any more. So rry to say, I do
have many many fond memories of it in the past.
i emailed them awhile ago asking if
the rules had changed bc i heard rumors they were. never heard back from
them. chance are i'm not entering bc the rules aint fair but i will be in
costume on sunday i hope
