The convention seemed to go off really well. It appears that attendance was up, both in terms of bodies on site and total memberships. Despite that, we didn't make our room block - couple of different things contributing to that, but it seems likely that economic conditions saw more people commuting or room sharing. Luckily, we negotiated a good attrition clause with the hotel, so it's not going to cost us that much money.

I can't actually report on much that happened at the con, because I spent nearly all of it in the consuite, leaving only when I had to go to the store to pick up more supplies. I can say that the consuite rocked, and I'm not just tooting my own horn, because lots of other people told me so. The masquerade was great - they had 10 people compete in Junk Pile Wars (1-hour costuming panel) and had to turn away 5 more! And then they also had 15 entrants to the regular masquerade. Lots of great superhero costumes in honor of Bubbleman. Around midnight Saturday night I get someone coming up to me in the hallway asking if I know how to get in touch with [livejournal.com profile] talyen, because someone from the hotel was trying to shut down the dance. Krysta wasn't answering her phone, so I went down to see if I could help, only to find [livejournal.com profile] netmouse and [livejournal.com profile] elizilla already there. Three (former) conchairs versus one hotel night manager - poor guy didn't stand a chance. (Turned out there was some miscommunication to the banquet staff, and they thought they were supposed to reset the rooms at midnight in preparation for the next day.)

But that was about the sum total of my non-consuite-related convention activity. I'll post my consuite related thoughts separately, since it's going to take me more time than I have to write up.
