Since I'm on and here, I'll leave my thoughts.
I think the staff went above and beyond the call of duty this year, as far as making sure there was plenty of security, and trying to keep things as updated as possible for scheduling. The guests, as always, were phenomenal, and I am always glad to see Greg and Chris there :]. As I said before, I've been coming to Sogen Con since 2007, and I can personally say that there has been so much improvement since then, although, being very easy to please perhaps, I have never been unhappy with it. I'm not going to say there weren't alot of problems then, and that there weren't problems this year, just that it went so much smoother. The main thing that troubled me, is that I had a little problem with the schedule, I have troubles sometimes with maps and grids, so the one on the back of the book confused me a little, but this was redeemed by the boards in the hallway :]. I was not the only one who noticed there were some spelling errors in the book, but that's more aesthetics, than actual problems.
Am I the only one noticing that there always seems to be a wedding during Sogen? I know this is a hotel thing, and not a con thing, but seriously, it's kinda interesting.
I also thought the dealer's room was missing something, but unfortunately, I can't say for sure what that is. I was happy with the selection, and I spent all of my money XD. so it was good. I finally saw some of the things my sister in the twin cities had told me, that I wasn't sure really existed. Namely a Hello Kitty hairdryer, and Hello Kitty Toaster [which I so want btw.]
I know it's probably a location/size issue, but I think some of the prices were a little high, and I had this conversation with a few people, in comparison to, say Detour's prices for certain items. however, not unreasonable. My wallet was crying though, so it could just be that.
I like the idea of an official photoshoot, and I apologize for the Risembool Rangers shoot not happening. and also for myself being disorganized at my own panels.
I do want to do more to help the con, so I am brainstorming on this end.
