MarsCon 2006 Report - Personal

Over here is my professional report covering MarsCon 2006. A personal reaction?

Pretty damn cool.

From the IEAS (they build and fly really big rockets .. for fun) at the next table: "When are you guys gonna get that thing built so we can fly these where they belong?"

Met Liftport stockholder Frank Smith who drove up from Kansas City. His first con as well.

Was it worth it? Sure was. Walked in and the very first person I saw was a fan on wheels. In costume. Said costume was from Earth Defense Forces and leaned heavily to berets, black camo and replica firearms from the late 20th century. Peace bonded of course. How cool is that? Plus the puns, the cameraderie and so on. All good stuff.
