Just got back from Frank and Sons. I'm surprised by this but after kiririth and I spoke to them it sounds like they are really interested in coming to set up shop at the con. We talked to Vince, Yoshi, Treasure Island (I know these guys' online shop get a bad rap but their booth at F&S is very good and competitive). That filipino guy with the TRANSFORMERS stand and Carl, my friend that has a lot of vintage he wants to get rid of. Not to mention Mindy from AnimePunch will be there with "stuff".

If there are any dealers here that want to bring goods, email kiririth. There's no cost at all.

AND YES!!! to the people that have PM'd me about the Mikimoto sketch... It actually says Macrossworld on it!!! Oh man... I want it!!!

Hmm, been years since I've been to an MWCON... Or, for that matter, since I was active around here, but what the hell, I think I'll try to make it down.

Maybe I'll wear my SMS uniform... looks pretty much like normal clothes anyway.

If nothing goes wrong, I'm actually going to be somewhere in the general part of the world as MWcon! But is anyone else coming from San Diego? I'll split gas money. Or recommend a good rental company.

I'm flying in there and grabbing a ride with another MW member. I will discuss your post with him and then reply back here or PM you on what I find out.

Looks like i am most likely not going to be able to make it this year. I really wanted to but totally ran out of money and my credit cards are almost maxed. Just not financially feasible for me. I hope to make it next year.

I was searching for the Macross theme song for my DJ'ing gig and ran across this site. You can download a lot of the songs from Macross. Best part is they are instrumental and are great for karaoke. I thought I would post it here and maybe you guys can have a contest at the convention for a prize or something. I for one would do it if that sketch was up for grabs.

Will you lovveee me tooomorrowwww!!!!!!!

Macross karaoke was a proposed contest last year. This would definitely make it easier to have the contest happen.

Well it looks like you're already gone for some time, and I'mgoing to be gone for about a week starting Friday, so don't our planning schedules work out awesome! :p Oh well it won't mean that I can't go if I don't hook up with a group, as I found out it shouldn't be to tricky to rent a car, but we can still split expenses if it can be discussed at the last minute. Anyone in the area can PM me if they want to set something up if and when I'm around.

Macross Poker Tournament

Sponsored by HobbyLinkJapan, AnimePunch and Otaku2

This year's MWcon Poker Tournament will take place on Saturday, July 19th, 2008 at the Long Beach ARC. The tournament will start at 6pm and run until there is a MWcon Poker Champion.

This is a No-Limit Texas Holdem poker tournament and prizes will be given out to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.

Maximum Players: 27 (3 tables of 9 players each)

Buy-in Amount: $20 + $5 to the LBARC (total $25) No Rebuys

Prizes: To be determined but will have a prize value of approximately $200 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd place, and $60 for 3rd place.

Players will get $1000 in chips to start with and will follow the following blind structure:

15 minute blinds

-1st hour-

10-20

20-40

30-60

40-80

-5 Minute Break-

-2nd hour-

50-100

75-150

100-200

150-300

-5 Minute Break-

-3rd hour-

200-400

300-600

400-800

500-1000

Blinds will continue to raise by 100 every 15 minutes after the 3rd hour is up until 1 player is declared the winner. When tables are uneven, we will move players from the table with the most players to table with the least. We will move the person that was in the same position relative to the Dealer Button as the player that was just eliminated.

General Rules

-No rabbit chasing

-No discussing hands if it's in the same deal, even if you already folded.

-A player can't hint or discuss possibilities of their folded hands.

-The next dealer shuffles their own cards.

-If the big blind is taken out during a hand, there will be no small blind for the next deal.

-We'll seat people randomly.

-If there's a push and there's an odd chip left, then the kicker decides who gets it. If the kicker is the same then the odd chip goes into the next pot.

-English only on the table.

-No cell phones while seated on the table.

-No eating on the tables.

-No pouring drinks on the tables.

-No spilling on the tables.

-Players must show all their highest denomination chips at all times.

-Verbal declarations are binding.

-No string betting.

-No actions out of turn. They may be binding.

-You can only call "time" on a long decision if you're still in the hand. Players that have folded cannot call "time". A person has 30 seconds to decide. 20 seconds will be silent and then there's a 10 second verbal countdown. The player will forfeit the hand if they fail to decide.

-No coaching other players.
