MonCon / ShoreCon Conventions
If anyone cares, CSG (which stood for "Circle of Stupid Gamers"
in our private counsuls) is defunct. Our last show, MonCon 2003, did
poorly, prompting us to sell the ShoreCon name to Gamer's Realm to save
our ass. ShoreCon then went on to do just as poorly, which caused a
major change in the operation of Gamer's Realm, and a hopelessly
muddled paper trail that points half at us (CSG - who just staffed it)
and at Gamer's Realm, who reaped what profits there were to be had and
then proceeded to vigorously point fingers. Now we're selling our
equipment & leftover supplies on eBay.
Since we got stuck being named in the contract with the hotel, some of
us are running "Southern Exposure", a lame duck convention that will
hopefully help defray the costs associated with the next two years
worth of hotel obligations.
As for me, it was a good run, but I think I prefer attending cons to
running them. Though I'll miss the free rooms & food.
