I had a blast this weekend. I can not think of a better Steampunk venue. Chattanooga Choo Choo with the trains the rows of Gas lamps between the train cars. It was awesome to see people in their finest steam attire walking down the walkways. Arc attack was great! I am looking for next year!

La Contessa and I should be there.  She is usually in charge of the camera, but is there anything in particular you would prefer?

Looking forward to this - we were at Chattacon two years ago, but only briefly due to illness; so this will essentially be the first Chattacon I have attended in 25 years.


Cheers!

Georg

If you happen to catch pictures (not taken at a police line up) of Georg, Pooka, Brennus, Lisa, or any of my other old friends and cohorts in crime benevolent educational activities if they happen to be there that would be great.  Please chastise them all for not visiting.  Have fun.

There was a very good article on Chattacon and some other regional cons in today's News-Free Press.

Actually quite supportive, instead of the smarmy tongue-in-cheek stuff we usually see.



Cheers!

Really looking forward to this now. 

Oh, for those who will be attending, there is an "English Tea Room" right across Market Street from the hotel.  I highly recommend it - crumpets and scones, and they really know how to make a cuppa.  PG Tips is the house brew, I believe.


Cheers!
