    Do they still have BayCon at the Red Lion Inn?

    It was a lot of fun. Lots of artists there, some interesting cosplay, and I went to the Axanar panel - the producer/star of "Prelude to Axanar" was there talking about the movie, the actors and the lawsuit.

    Awesome! My first non-work convention type thingy was Gencon 2014.
    Had a BLAST!

    Jackson, TN had a 'southern pop culture' con (it was a Comic Con,
    but more local and more than just comics & super heroes). I enjoyed
    it so much that two weeks later I went to one in Memphis. Got to
    meet Vernon Wells - that was cool! :-)

    I love the cosplay! I started buying nerf & water guns at the goodwill
    with the intention of making up some cosplay guns and such. :-)

    I wish I could be there to go. I've been to many a Con in my day tho. I've been to BayCon, SiliCon, and TimeCon. They were usually held at the Red Lion Inn. Is that still around? I remember getting Tom Baker's autograph at TimeCon '80. I still have the program for BayCon '85.

    Back in '85ish, San Jose had a film festival and it was held at the Camera theaters. (Camera One, Camera Three..). I got Ray Harryhausen's autograph on the program. I also saw Patrick Stewart speak at one of the conventions
    aroun '90.

    I've wanted to turn a desktop swing-arm lamp and toy machinegun into a
    Smartgun from Aliens. :)
