    I wanna come too!! It's really bad timing for me, I have a Child Care Conference starting the Wednesday after and it's just not possible to do both.
    If I win the lottery between now and then I'll be there with bells on and so will the SEAC

    Good Lord! If a Mod would like to change my butchered spelling of "preliminary" that would be cool.

    Yeah, you all should have lots of confidence in my attention to detail. Sheesh.

    Thanks so much, Daddio. Nothing like getting advice from a native. We all know that the Chamber of Commerce Info can sometimes give a false impression. I'd rather have the word from someone who has nothing to gain.

    REALLY. ??? THAT I did not know! I really did think it was because it IS so windy over here.

    Daddio, we're not trying to "shut you down", but we have a group of people in charge of planning for this, as you can imagine, extremely complex event. We'd like you to work with that group, rather than just tossing out ideas while we're working on other stuff.

    Yeah! This newbie would love to meet other FoRTers at the Con - I'm so happy it'll be here in Chicago. I'll keep checking the thread for more info.

    I've had a lot of questions about who is coming and how many people are coming. The answer is I don't know...yet. However, I just wanted to take a moment to give everyone a look at the scope of this thing, so you don't worry about showing up and finding me, John, and three other people sitting in an empty bar.

    Currently, over 60 people have requested that I add them to the list. Over thirty have definite plans to attend, with some going as far as to have their tickets already. Many of your favorite Mods and Writers are coming, as well as many of your fellow members. I've gotten literally *hundreds* of other emails requesting more information and expressing great interest in attending. Several reality tv celebs have contacted us, and we have plans to contact many more.

    So, although I don't have any concrete number yet, it does appear that this will be a very successful launch for the FORTcon idea. We hope to have many of you join us in October.

    Whoo hoo!!! I am SO tempted to go buy some plane tickets right now...who cares if I can't get off work..I'll quit for the FORT
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    With an event like this, perhaps even Steve and I will attend...unless that would drive attendance down...
