2008 Redux

Hi all,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone in the Megaplex community for the wonderful success that we had this year.  I know that we're a small convention, but I'd like to think that we're big on fun.  This year was definitely among the most memorable that I can recall.   

I know that our entire staff worked really hard to make certain that everyone in attendance had the best time that they could.  And on the flip side of that, the staff really did try to spend more time with our guests and have a bit of fun ourselves.  All in all, I think it was a wonderful weekend that was fairly problem free.

It's really hard to do a specific rundown of every person on staff and the volunteers that helped with the weekend, because everyone seemed to really just pitch in when something needed doing.  Whenever someone needed a hand, there was never a shortage of people trying to help out.  Big thanks to Carlfox, Yappy, Rasvar, Liesl, JR, Lynx, Ronin Otter, Brace Bear, Skippyfox, Antimon, Animecat, Santafox, Wildwolf, Salen, Stitch, Mach, the Dorsai, Eaglebeagle, Uncle Kage, 2 the Ranting Gryphon, Hali, Bucktown Tiger, Gen Whitmore, Terry Sender, Ford Shepherd, and really everyone else that was on staff or just helped us out when we needed a bit of help.  (Even Grandma and Grandpa Kage gave us help in the con suite, and Yippee Coyote and Nevermint helped with the Charity Auction.  Thanks so much!)  I'm hoping that I didn't forget anyone, but please....know that everyody with MP really appreciated all the assistance this weekend.

I was asked if we could post a picture of the MegaSponsor gift this year.  An image of it can be found here.  It's a desk clock with a gyroscopic type globe on top that looks reminscent of the top of the Daily Planet Building in Superman.  (We tried to go with something superhero themed for the gift.)

Someone recently mentioned that going to Megaplex isn't like going to many other conventions.  In some ways, it was said that we're like a family reunion.  I'd like to think that we do give off that feeling.  But it isn't just the staff or even the volunteers that give Megaplex it's character.  Our attendees are as much a part of it as anything.  When everyone was enjoying Rocky Horror, or Kage's Story Hour, the concerts by Matthew Ebel and Bucktown Tiger, or going to the dances and partying until the wee hours of the morning, or even watching Megapanther tackling Baron von Redtail - you gave us the energy and the drive to keep going.  We can create the framework for a weekend, but everyone, staff or attendee, gave the con its spirit.  I wish I had the ability to name every single person and attendee at the con, because it's really everybody that made MP2008 what it was.  

Thanks again to everyone for a truly wonderful, and dare I say, SUPER weekend.  And here's looking forward to Megaplex in 2009!

I think you might mean Sparkyfox, but who knows, perhaps there is a Skippy out there. :D
Anyway, had a great time, keep up the good work and I'll be there year after year.

Disregard that, there is a Skippy.
Still, awesome con, in my hometown, much win.

KP, thank-you and the entire MP Staff...

Good Morning KP:

I wanted to take a moment to thank-you and everyone else, especially staff and volunteers for making this convention a very enjoyable one for me. Admittedly, I didn't volunteer as much as I should have, and yes I do feel bad about that; all in all, this convention was very smoothly run, and really had something to offer for everyone.

Thanks again, and I look forward to staffing at next year's convention.

All the best,

Rukario

As my very first con I really had a blast, I will more than likely be coming back next year where ever you guys go. :)

Dude, I had a blast. And I hope I can afford to come back next year for more!

Pax,

I had a great time! I will be coming back again. Of course I'll be flying down next time.
