2021 A New Hope (early Con chat)

Recommended Posts

Hey someone had to put it up.

 

At this time, I'm just hoping for a in person Con & things going around the world are back to some semblance of normalcy.

That would be really nice... Not super likely that I'll be able to go next year, but there's always hope.

I reaaaaalllly want regular Reapercon.  I'll plan to go.in person and hope for the best.  I miss my yearly (again) longdrive and fun week in Texas.

I actually liked the virtual con quite a bit. I was able to take all the classes I wanted without them filling up and I could see what the instructor was doing reasonably well.

 

I miss the MSP Open and hobby hijinks etc. but I think some aspects of this virtual one were better.

 

I’m kind of hoping for a more hybrid approach in the future...

I believe that's what they're planning starting next year.

Hopefully more of the Con is at the hotel vs online. They've tried a hybrid at the hotel & at the factory & it was a major PiTA to get to events.

Barring a potential family trip to Hawaii I am planning on being to Rcon 2021. I know I should start on painting contest entries now, but I know I put that stuff off till last minute.

Odds are not in favour of me ever returning to Reapercon. So I am hopeful there is still a reasonable online presence in the years ahead, but having been there the once, I fully understand and share your hopes for next year and all the years after. I will forever miss meeting and being a part of everything with everyone, and want everyone to have the chance to enjoy that experience again.

While I hope for some normalcy next year, or as close to normal as we are likely able to get, I expect it will be less and less likely I'll be able to make the trip to Texas. Not complaining, but with everything going on in my life it's harder and harder to get away every year. 

 

Also kudos to all the instructors and everyone who dumped all the time into making this work.

I had a Brilliant Idea for a class somebody could teach.

Painting Ordinance (tanks, vehicles, 'mechs. ..) - probably for people like me for whom the logic doesn't want to go there.

 

... and now, I wait, with varying degrees of patience, for next year.

There have been classes in that general theme before. This might be something to request from Greg Zuniga or Aaron Lovejoy.
