We are looking for ways to try and make the difference in cost for the theatre for the 12 hour marathon. A possible revenue raiser for the con: I am offering 2 x CD's cram packed full of Macross (including Miss DJ, Minmei Vocal collection and background music from the TV series and DYRL), Macross 7, Macross Plus, Sharon Apple, Megazone 23, Mospeada, Southern Cross, Robotech, Robotech Shadow Chronicles, Evangelion + a couple of other anime titles that will also feature images CD's. The CD's will be supplied to Matt and he will take payments as a donation per CD. These CD's will be offered on both Saturday and Sunday.

The images that are being used on the CD face belong to POLIDREAD. The images are also sharper than what is featured as Gifs and look great on the CD face.
