There's an empty plot of land when Marine World used to be in Redwood City. There's a reason why Ralson Ave. is Marine Pkwy. on the other side....

Just to give further idea of how much fun staffing is, and how worthy I feel it is of my time, about 40-50% of the people who attended our wedding were FanimeCon staffers. In fact, Milton who is the Director of Marketing was one of my bridesmen. Yes you read that right, he was a bridesman.

I understand that another day of FanimeCon would be awesome as an attendee, but if that isn't enough for you, I would second or third you joining staff. It really is a whole different experience and one I wouldn't trade for the world.

This is really unfair to those of us who would love to join staff but live several hours away...

If you count Thursday, then it's already 5 days. XD Two half days and three full. =P So why add another?

I really, really want to go on Thursday. So then I won't have to wait in line on Friday, and so I can get to know Fanime and stuff. XD

It is doable, we do have staff who live just as far away. The thing is, how determined are you to get the information on a department you'd like to join on your own? And are you committed enough to show up at the con without meeting your department head/mates and putting that enthusiasm into your work?

I always thought it would be fun to have a Fanime every 6 months. One in Spring, one in Fall. Not too hot, not too cold, not too dry and not too wet.

someone brought this idea up too once upon a time...
as nice as nice a concept this would be--- its just something I doubt Fanime could do at this point in time.

Til then you have Sac-Anime which does have 2 conventions [Winter and Summer] a year.

Asking if my dedication would last the whole time working by myself? I would like to think so, but that's something that's easy to say. It would definitely wane over time. I figure the group effort is all part of the experience, and with that pushed to the side it would be easy to lose sight of the goal.

Kyra, I'm pretty sure that if you weren't able to make it to the meetings and just helped at the con, your help would still be much appreciated :)

and if you think about it, fanime started out as a one day con according to an earlier post, and now it's a five day con with all sorts of awesome fancy events, so i'm sure that *eventually* (ten more years maybe?) it will have grown enough to do something like add a day or something.  but for now, it's not possible.

I don't think adding an extra full day is possible. Memorial day weekend is the best time to have the con, because most people get a day off on Monday. After that, everyone goes back to work or school, so no one would really be attending that extra day. It just be a waste of money.
