IF there's a reason you can't come to the con this weekend, you better find a way there!

Just got word from Japan... Frontier movie is 2hrs long!!! We are starting this 11am sharp to stay on schedule!

Are we allowed to take picture of the custom displays? I ask because there wasn't a lot of custom pictures last con. Want to know if I should bother carrying my camera bag with me. Going to start packing tonight. Gotta work the whole day then straight to the airport.

Pictures of custom displays are more than welcomed! Actually, we took a ton of pictures of the custom displays, but it was only a few tables so it might not have seemed like much. You can only bring your camera if you promise to post all your pictures

Taking Friday off of work so to start packing some of the stuff I'll be bringing. Still deciding if I should bring some more rare Macross items to display or if there is enough room at the Con. Hmmmm....

Slightly off topic.

While perusing through all this con business, I came across a video from last year. I sing in an a cappella quintet and we're looking for a vocal percussionist. Does anyone know this guy from last year's con?

Approximately 45 minutes from Torrance.

Take 405 freeway north, then get off at Wilshire to your right then turn left at Westwood.

Check out the google map.

hahaha.... yea, that was me. A cappella was part of my former glory days at UCLA as a member of the ScatterTones and was the vocal percussionist for the group. Send me a PM and tell me more about your group or email me at MacrossWorldConvention@gmail.com

Funny. Both you and Operator7G (Norge) were at RT25, but sitting at tables on opposite sides of the room! Norge is coming to MW Con tomorrow so maybe you guys can do a duet? ^_^

Heh. Well, I sing bass so I'm used to harmonizing. If Kirik does his VP magic and we find another singer or two or three, we can probably put together something hot! MW Con 2011?!?! :o
