Maid Cafes, Karaoke, Pachinko, AMVs

Apologies to everyone, I was late getting on this year. I'll catch up as quickly as I can.

This concerns us greatly, and I believe Alec is addressing this.

The scheduling system sounds like something we should consider. I'll highlight this for Alec's attention.

That's new since your last time. It's very nice, isn't it? Cathy got the recommendation from a professional KJ we know, and jumped on it.

Some years we have them, some years we don't. There's a guy who brings them and he doesn't make it to the con every year.

I'll call this to the attention of the Events Division head.
