Preview night 6:03 I get a phone call from a Friend and he said he has my Blue snag in his hand, Must be nice to have a Exhibitor badge. I'm glad I gave him the cash before he headed down there.Got to meet him later to pick it up.
There is plenty of parking and the shuttle service is fast. Park on pacific coast highway on the corner of Broadway and the parking is cheaper, the bus is right in front of the lot, It takes about five minutes to get to the convention center and they drop you off in front. Send me a PM that week and i can tell you where the best parking is.
San Diego mayor has approved a large expansion of the convention center to reach out to SDCC and keep them here. The surrounding hotels are now hosting smaller events and panels at their meeting/ball rooms. It has grown way out of hand and it is not as fun anymore, or I'm getting old and wish ( Like my wife) that it could be like when we fist met 22 years ago. The con was one of the firs places we went to as a couple 22 years ago and we never miss it.
So who is going this year? There is a breakfast in Seaport village next door.
On Friday, July 13th at 7:30 am, Star Wars Action News will be hosting the 2nd Annual Star Wars Fan Breakfast! Last year I went to this and it was a small event, really laid back and I got to sit next to Stephen Sansweet so we talked about the Con and vintage collecting. Next table over there was Gus and Duncan signing their book. All in all, a highlight of the Con. Two days latter I ran into Stephen at the con and he came up to me and remembered my name, we hung out for about fifteen minutes the he said he will see me next year.Let's see if he remembers my name.
Yeah! That sucked I had to go to the CC website and go in that way. I got Thursday and Sunday. I wanted Friday as it is Star Wars Day but it was sold out. I'm trying to get a PRO badge for the hole week but I don't think that will happen, I've sent them an email. I'll wait to see if the San Diego Star Wars Society will have a booth and try that route. My daughter, Mara Jade wants me to put a mad face
