FopCon #1 is over. Here are some of the highlights of the trip.
See previous blog entry about FopCon HERE

The Hall

Saturday my kitchen pass was still good, so I drug my two lackeys into the truck and we made the trip to Huber Heights and visited FopCon 2009. We got there around 12 noon and were welcomed by Doug and the rest of the staff who were very helpful to show us around.

Say hi to Doug the organizer.

Bell, Book, and Comic table. Friendly faces!

Simply Fun table

Back room gaming fun. I think everyone back here was doing some form of RPG.

Big Heroscape game in progress.

Tom from Fat Dragon Games, who helped explain Heroscape to me.

All in all, it was a fun trip. They had a decent turn out of about 30-40 people when I was there. I left around 1:30 but was told that the events would run late into the evening. I'll get word from Doug for the final head count, but I can see this becoming a MUCH bigger event in the years to come..

This is Rich and Aaron. They had their own booth there at the con, trying to sell off some of their old action figures to make some $$. Word has it that Aaron will be a new daddy this week. Best of luck to you guys!
