Thank you to everyone that attended NuCon in spite of the weather. I know it’s not always easy to get out when the weather is so unpredictable. We saw lots of familiar faces as well as new ones. It’s always good to add new friends to our NuCon family.
I appreciate Gil and Janet Gerard for attending again this year for the 40th anniversary of the Buck Rogers movie. Always good to have them here and always a pleasure to talk with them. Gil always keeps the crowd rivited with his stories and conversation. Hope to see them again soon.
We had other guests this year that were top notch as well. Some of the friendliest and most talented people in their field. I appreciate each of them for coming. I encourage everyone to visit their pages and check out their work. They are: MeLeesa Swann, Jared Vickery, Derrick and Megan Newton, Freddy Clements, John Anderson, members of the SCA: College of Phoenix Rising: Mike Little, Linda Little, Kim Elliott, Patrick Swearengin and Hayleigh Marie Hazle.
