Capricon (Wheeling)

I'm planning to head up to Capricon on Friday. Smaller local con, but still supposed to be a fun place to hang out and be geeky. Looks like lots of panels, costumes, and art.
I figure I'll be leaving in the morning and heading back in the evening, but timing is flexible.

    I wish I could go but won't be moved back in time. I never missed this convention growing up.

    Does anyone need a ride up? I'm in Evanston and have wheels.

    Saturday works better for me.

    Cap is a great con, lots of fun, good programming, and good nighttime parties! If you head back in the evening, you'll miss half of what makes the con great. I'm a little biased, though, I met my significant others at a Capricon party 8 years ago.:-)

    I can't go on Friday, but if anyone is interested in going on Saturday, I'll most likely be going!

    I am one of the department heads at Cap, so feel free to ask me anything you want. I'll be there all weekend. P.S. Don't forget to check out the really awesome parties at night! They usually start around 9pm.

      That's great, Leane! I've never been, so your advice would be really helpful.

      The thing to remember is that this is a smaller, more social type of convention and not a big, star-studded, commercial extravaganza. This is a con put on by fans for other fans. Personally, I love these types of cons.
