    Thanks for taking the lead on this, Scott! My wife has been asking me for more details, so having this kind of structure around the Kon is great to know!

    I can't imagine anyone feeling let down.
    You're doing a fine job.....except for the portal that will get me there, but I understand.....you've had a lot on your plate.
    If anyone is disappointed, it's not your fault....from where I'm sitting, you're doing great! :kiss:

    ....excellent summation...plenty of time to enjoy and visit with one another...for me, the attractions are secondary to the camaraderie....

    not sure yet, but I am working on it

    would like to at least be able to come Friday night and stay all day Saturday
    I'm in Chicago, so you'd think I could travel the distance from her to there relatively cheaply

    I can't believe I'm going to miss an opportunity to meet Zombie girl! (and her sweet sister)
    Maybe somebody will be able to get me a couple of autographs?

    I still treasure my signed postcard from last year's Kon so we'll definitely have to get a bunch of postcards together for those of you who couldn't make it this year!
