[Nov 13-15, 1998: TGN, Schaumburg, IL] “WindyCon XXV” was great as ever. Met old con friends (10 Forward crew), current con friends (Voyager crew), and new con friends (Babylon 5 crew). I invited friends around here and from Michigan. There were 1200+ attendees and the place was packed. As usual, there were major room parties, 10 or so each on Friday and Saturday nights. Stayed up till 3:00am both nights! The official eZine-TGN Con Rating is in: 9.0 out of 10.0.

[June 12-14, 1998: TGN, Rosemont, IL] “Duckon VII” was okay. There were 500+ attendees but hardly saw more than small groups at a time. Again, there was a major lack of room parties, only 1 on Friday and 1 on Saturday. There was a furry track, so there were a lot of animal costumes. Also, medieval and renaissance costumed people were about, including Nero types. And, the official eZine-TGN Con Rating is in: 3.0 out of 10.0.

[February 6-8, 1998: TGN, Rosemont, IL] “Capricon XVIII” was fun! Yours truly won the best costume of Capricon (as Borg, of course)! You can click on the mini-Borg picture above to get a full size photo… There were 600+ attendees putting the con in the “well attended” category. However, there seems to be a major lack of room parties, only 5 on Friday and 3 on Saturday.
There seemed to be a preponderance medieval and renaissance costumed people, a trend which does not seem to be diminishing. Well, I didn’t bring my camera (yes, I am a moron), so I don’t have any pictures. Hopefully, someone will submit some to me and I will post them. And, the official eZine-TGN Con Rating is in: 5.0 out of 10.
