Additional information or comments: The Legion has had a prescence at Visioncon since 2005. Since then, we have become very involved with the charity through our shoot-a-trooper and Jail & Bail. Let's continue that legacy and raise the Charity Bar through our love of Costuming...and try to enjoy yourselves in the process. ;-)

You don't want to miss this one, troops!

I REALLY thougth this would be the year to make it down, but this is the same weekend as Naka Kon in KC, so I have to decide if I want to spend the money (and 'political capital' with the wife) to travel the same weekend when a local alternative is availble...

So I'm still up in the air on this one. But if anyone from KC is giong down, I've got banner and such I can send down, as usual...

Bill and I talked about going down and sharing a room, but he hasn't gotten back to me from an email last week if we are still doing it. I'll have to call him and find out. I think some of the others are goign to be at naka kon as well.

It seems that this year is a bad year for VCon... They double booked with another local comic book convention down here so we're going to be losing people to that as well.
As always, the southern Dantooine Rebels would be happy to host anyone who is willing to make the drive!
Have fun at NakaKon!

Yeah thats the issue when you skip a year then the next two years you have it in January, and then decide to move it back to the old weekend you used to have. I would be going to it if it was still at the tail end of Jan like the last two years. but I have a lot in March so Feb travel is not big this year.

Been a while since I checked the forums (bad Bedlam Embarassed ).

I'll be there with the whole family again...just like every year. Bart, I need to set up a meet with you to get the banner for the table. Norm called me a couple days ago and asked if I could get it from you.

Tommy,

I'll be down on Friday and can bring my banner as well if you want to use it. I'm not sure yet exactly when I'd be there however or when I'll leave Sunday. I'll go ahead and toss it in with my stuff though.

Rich

Always good to have a back-up plan Very Happy

I'll let Norm know that there will be at least one banner available.

I'm handling the Mando Mercs' table, so I'm mainly just trying to help out Norm. So any banner I can get to him will be great.

I can meet any time after tomorrow (still on call until Friday morning). Meeting Darryl Woods next Wed or Thu to pick up some new Mando Mercs artwork, but don't have any other plans other than getting costumes tweaked this weekend.

Not sure yet when or where I'm meeting Darryl. He is supposed to call me next week to set up the meet, so it will probably be fairly last minute.

I'm going in to the Legends tomorrow to drop my son off and then in to Shawnee or Mission (never can remember which) to get some more leather dye after that. Wouldn't be too much of an extra drive to come meet you somewhere while I'm doing all that. I think you still have my number, so just gimme a call if you wanna meet tomorrow some time.
