  1. I know I have a lot to learn about painting, but if I never get to the level of some of these truly gifted painters I can live with that. To me painting is like bowling. I have been bowling for decades, and I have an acceptable average (low 140's). I know I never will be a pro bowler, and will never bowl a perfect game, but I still love to sling the ball. A few times people have approached me about joining a league but I have always said "NO" because people on leagues tend to take the game so seriously it takes the fun out of it. If it got to the point where I really cared about my score and got mad when I didn't do well, it would be time to find another interest to pursue. The same with painting. If I get to the point where I am getting mad because I can't paint well enough or win awards, it's time to quit.

    You hear the horror stories b/c most of the time it is fine and not worth talking about. By far, flying is the best form of travel.

    So true, like everything else you only hear about the bad. I wish I could afford a little plane I could fly myself to these events. Maybe one day after I win the lottery. Gotta remember to play it first :)

  3. I hear so many horror stories about people flying commercial and getting stranded or really delayed. Makes me never want to fly commercial. I am taking my time driving, stopping after about 8 hours and finishing the drive the next day, about 4 hours I think.

    Im looking forward to this trip. Cause... blah to work. 

    :) I so know what you mean. This will be my first vacation in two and a half years, and I am so ready. Actually have an entry almost ready for the painting contest. I say almost because I dropped it the other night and now I have to touch up where it hit the concrete floor

  5. I used to play a lot of the old version of 7th sea and would love to play old or new, but it would probably have to be an informal late night event for me. Did you have any particular times in mind? I am planning on arriving on Wednesday and leaving Monday

  6. I don't believe they have it all worked out yet. I signed up for a game Thursday night, and the game is scheduled for Thursday and Friday. According to the profile, it doesn't show which one I am signed up for

    They have a tiny cup end instead of being flat, which makes them very useful for grasping round or odd shaped tiny bits.  They make assembly of the tiny bits a lot easier, and faster, as you don't spend near as much time looking for that bit that just went "spoing" and won't be found until 4 months after the replacement arrives.

    The Tool Guy [can't remember his actual name] has, quite literally, a ton of handy small tools for sale and at reasonable prices.  He sold out of some stuff so I suggest you check him out as early in the Con as you can conveniently arrange.

    Of course, the same may be said of most of the vendors. :poke:


    Sounds like a pretty neat gizmo, I will have to check that out. Thanks!
