Lol, how did the San Jose Sharks get into the conversation. We don't know if they're going to the playoffs this year.
I remember Fanime '04 the arcade games were on the con floor at the Marriott side. Fanime '05 the artist alley tables were on the con floor.
Fanime '03 was the only time we occupied the entire Santa Clara Convention Center. I'm sure Fanime '00-Fanime'02 there were other events and we shared the convention center. I remember one year there were high school volleyball games. I'm not sure when Fanime occupied the entire San Jose Convention Center. I know it wasn't Fanime '04.
Must have been on 06 when we invaded the whole convention center. In 04 I remember peeking into a large area and seeing the image of an American flag and bald eagle on screen. I then knew it was not about anime. XD
05 I remember there was a graduation ceremony going on. When it ended, all the people came out peeked around at the artist tables.
In 03, I remember some girls posting on the forum that there was a christian meeting or something. The girls went in and got their badges checked and the person still let them in. Then they realized they were in the wrong place when they started looking around. lol
