    I'm going to the con, but since this meetup will be during Friday and I have to work that day, I won't be able to make it. However, if people are going to be around at the con throughout the weekend, I'll still be happy to meetup with them.

    I was an early member of Anime-X. I bought the group their first 1,000 logo embellished ink pens because I felt like doing something for the group.

    Watching anime on TVs, home-made music videos by Dave, Dragon Con anime parties and later the anime room, playing console games at the back of the room, and borrowing VHS tapes from the groups library of LD rips was so cool. I think there were rips to S-VHS and Beta cassettes too. I haven't been to one of their cons since it first got started. If I have some extra cash I may stop by.
