July 7th through 9th at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT

I guess it's about time to start thinking about this. So, who's planning on going? What do you plan on doing there? Etc. etc.

I can't plan much of anything at the moment because I'm job hunting and could get called at anytime, but if nothing happens by June 20-ish I might be there. according to the amtrak website, I can get tickets to Hartford for only 19 dollars. I know Syracuse is a little further away, but dang... either Albany-Hartford is underpriced or they gouge on Albany-Syracuse.

Stinky and I are going on the 9th (Sunday), and I'm pretty sure that Spriteville and Kris X are going to meet up with us there. Do you know if we have to buy tickets in advance or anything?

It looks like we'll be going or at least we're fairly certain to show up. Yay. :)

No, you can buy tickets at the door. In fact, it seems you have to, at this point (the last day for discounted pre-purchases was this past weekend).

I was thinking about going for the whole weekend (if only because I happen to be on vacation that week)...and I still may, depending on the events. However, I'll plan to definitely attend on that Sunday, at least.

I don't know... I've never been before and know nothing about it. :oops: What do you think we should do? (Stinky and I are going to be wearing shirts with our characters on them, if that will make us any easier to spot... Or you could just be on the lookout for really skinny long-haired guys hanging out with the pink-haired chubby girls. How many of them could there possibly be? XD )

Where to meet? I'm not sure, since I haven't been to this particular con before either. I'm not sure what your schedules are like, but since you all seem to be planning to attend Sunday only, I'd suggest meeting somewhere near Registration (since you all have to go there anyway).

When? I dunno...noontime sound good to everyone? The con's probably only going to go to about 6:00 on Sunday, so we'll want it to be early enough for those first-timers to get a good look at the place, should they so choose.

Any objections, speak now or forever hold your peace.

Who? Here's the list, so we know who to look out for:

Stinkywigfiddle
Spriteville
KrisX
Tim (and his brother, most likely)

When does it start, exactly? Stinky and I are going to try to be there as early as possible.

edit: Whoa! 8 am? We're not going to be there THAT early...yeesh. (We like our sleep! :lol: )

Noon sounds good to me.

It seems the easiest place to meet up. Plus, it's the only thing that I know for sure will be there. Like I said before, for those of you who don't know what we look like, Stinky and I will be wearing T-shirts with our characters on them. (and I'll have bright pink hair.)

So.... I got bored and will be colorfully journaling on Comixpedia blog about the days leading up to ConnectiCon. I hope to add something the next 4 days, so cheer me on and I hope no one minds being mentioned who are attending?

Neat. I know I don't mind. I probably don't have to remind people to bring their sketchbooks, right?

No, I don't mind being mentioned. In fact, I don't mind if you link me, either. *wink wink*

I take it you'll also be providing your impressions in a post-con report of sorts?
