Capricon XIX 1999

 
 
 

[February 12-14, 1999: TGN, Arlington Heights, IL] “CapriconXIX” had a lot more room parties than last year! 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 renaisance costumed people, a trend which does not seem to be diminishing. And, the official eZine-TGN Con Rating is in: 5.0 out of 10

The General’s 17th Annual New Year’s Eve Party 1998

 
 
 

[Dec 31, 1998: TGN, Des Plaines, IL] “The 17th Annual New Year’s Eve Party (NYEP)” was great!. Old friends (from UIUC) and new ones from all over popped in. Even Hector Olson (after a multi-year hiatus)… And Ilmar Hein joined the fun. I could go on and on but I will just bore you, so I’ll shut up 🙂 There were 30 attendees. The party lasted until 2:00am. Are we getting old or what? The official

WindyCon XXV 1998

 
 
 

[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.

Duckon VII 1998

 
 
 

[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.
