      I don't foresee us getting there any earlier than noon, but who knows! We'll swing by the info table, and if I recognize anyone, we'll say hello! If we don't recognize anyone, we'll still say hello. If you see us, feel free to say hello, lol! We're hard to miss. My husband is a foot and a half taller than me, I have big poofy bright red hair, and we have the cutest little baby boy.

      I'll be in the dealer's room most of the time - helping at Game Gnight. After hours I'll probably be hanging out in the open gaming areas.

    I do really want to attend. However a fractured 5th metetarsal bone in my foot says otherwise. You all will have a great time and I will wish I was there.

      Hey Bernadette. I'm new to the group but always willing to lend a ride to a fellow sci-fier. I'm from far ne philly, if yout not too out of my way I would be willing to swing by and you can ride with me. My kid might be going too but there's plenty of room for another. Just let me know

    I'll probably be helping my friend sell games in the dealer's room. Stop by and say Hi.

    I had a nice green shirt from the one science fiction convention where I was a speaker many years ago. On the back was a list of the speaker names. Don't know where the t-shirt is now. I enjoyed the convention immensely. If you need any help with the writing aspect, let me know as I have been a creative writing instructor for many years. May the force of scifi be with ya!

    Hi,
    Love scifi and enjoy writing it. If you'd like to have some fun and just write for enjoyment, check out my free page on Facebook for Creative Writing Excercises. It can be one sentence or more. Enjoy the writing!

    I just attended the Monster-Mania Con over the weekend and it was awesome. This should be just as good or better.
