Con Report Rainfurrest The Return
The Convention Rainfurrest
The place: Hilton Hotel can Convention center
The dates: 27 through 30 September 2012.
Rainfurrest is a Furry convention held every year at the Sea Tac area. My large chococat was the accompanying plush. This was my return to Raifurrest aft a two year absence.
Thursday: I got up and rush to the Amtrak train station. Because of the condition of my truck I decided to take the train up especially after my plans for renting a car fell through.
I got to the hotel The Hilton Hotel and Convention center store my stuff and head out for lunch, then set up in my room and attended the opening ceremonies.. I have to say the stage set up was a fry cry form the first Rainfurrest 2007. The opening ceremony was in what would have been a smaller panel room today and for guy in front.
At last I present my long awaited Orycon 33 Report. My delay was due My disappointment with Orycon and Starting a new Job.
The Con: Orycon – (Writers) Science Fiction
The Place: Double Tree Lloyd’s Center
Date: 11 – 13 Nov 2011
This is my 5th Orycon. I looked d forward to this cone every year but this year I left disappointed. Dark cloud started to appeared a few week before when I check the web site when programming was posted; what struck me there was not much I really wanted to attend and the large amount of professional writers panels but slim picking for readers and fans.
Because I started a new Job, I decide it would not be right to take Friday Off; after work I went down pick up my badge and attended the opening ceremonies. Next I went to Tiptoe Through the Tardis; it was part panel and part gathering of fans. I left after a while because it was a bit hokey for my taste. I did better at the fan participation of Who line is it. It was very fumy. Afterwards I retired for the evening
The Con Kumoricon The Anime Convention
The Place: Portland Hilton Hotel
Kumoricon is the Annual Anime convention in Portland Oregon over the Labor Day weekend. This year I took my big Chococat around the convention space. Like my big Hello Kitty last year, he was a hit. During to convention I met up with few fellow furries and one fursuiter Independence got a lot of good attention.
