Con Crash...

The con is over.

Wednesday was a bit rough, though not directly. Something happened to one of my friends, but a full recovery has been made.

Thursday kicked ass. The venues were great. The bus driver was great. The tour group was great.

Friday was very good. We hit the jackpot on the Friday Night Social theme. The Pretty Pink Princess party was too cool.

Saturday was rough. Very rough. Fortunately, the attendees seemed to be pretty forgiving. The parties, however, were amazing.

Sunday was fabu. Saturday's errors were not repeated.

Monday was excellent. Things slowly wound down. The dead dog party was everything a dead dog party should be.

Today was rough. I had canceled the wine tours because of lack of interest, and it was a good thing. Move-out was hell. 4 car-loads. The last one hasn't even been emptied.

A lot of people did a lot of serious work to make this convention a success.

And now I crash. Hard. 6 years, and all that's left is administratrivia and closing the books.

Good work, all of you!
All I did was attend and I was on sensory overload ten minutes after I got there and completely wiped by early Sunday.

I had another engagement preventing my appearance Saturday, but we had a good time Sunday with the back to back Fursuit panels and the Fursuit parade through the hotel. I was amazed at the reception we got wherever we went - the dealers exclaimed, "The furries are here!" and in a positive way.

Thanks for all your hard work!

The con was all win! Even the rough patches were made enjoyable. I'm looking forward to CC32 in 2014. You did say 6 years, didn't you?

*Applause* One of the best conventions I've ever attended. I'm proud to be able to say I had a tiny bit to do with its organization.

Future Costume-Cons will curse the Evil Geniuses for having set the achievement bar so high.

Yah...

BTW, still serious thanks for the help schlepping yesterday. I hurt in places I shouldn't have places.

Same here.

I doubt you noticed that I was not bending over, kneeling or lifting yesterday during final loadout.

Thanks for you all your help!

So sorry I ran out of energy, so I couldn't help with load out of the tech gear

OMG I feel your pain (although yours is bigger, which sounds kind of dirty). I SOOOOO wish I could have made it, but congratulations on a great con!
