I have been to many cons now. My first con was AC-Cubed in Ottawa back in 2006. It no longer exists but has been replaced with Naru 2U. I go to it every year. It remains a very small con but it's the closest one to where I live. I have also been to G-Anime in Gatineau twice, Anime North three times and Otakuthon three times. This year, I already went to AN and will go to Otakuthon and Naru 2U again later this year. I also plan to attend a mini con in July and Anime Revolution in Vancouver two weeks after Otakuthon. They are hosting a special Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary event, which I cannot miss as SM is my fav Anime ever. I have a huge SM collection.
After all the cons I have been to, Otakuthon is my fav by far. I luv the location. The Palais de Congres is beautiful but my fav place inside the building happens to be the Cosplay Cafe. The look of it is splendid. I especially luv the outside terrace. The attendance is also perfect. Not as many people as AN. This year I found AN overcrowded and doubt I will go back to it in the future.
Sadly though, I will not be volunteering. I did think about it but I live too far away. If there are regular meetings to attend, I wouldn't be able to make it. I would also prefer to enjoy the con anyway. I worry that volunteering could take away too much of my time. Glad that you can volunteer though. You guys keep things running smoothly. Kudos to you.
So I hope to see you there. If you see Katara or a white Neko, that will be me.
