Thanks for the report, Kibbie. Very nice! Have you been able to see the video Sokar made of the Weyrfest Costume Contest? It os wonderful and we get to see you as the fairy. I was very glad you liked your prize so much!

The fact you enjoyed yourself hugely comes across very well in your report, so well done

Kibbie, I'm glad you had fun! Your report is well organized and concise but there are a few errors. If you are doing this report as a school project you may want to go over it again. The errors aren't serious but there are several of them and since you've obviously put a lot of work into it already, I'm sure you will want to make this report as good as you possibly can. Look it over and see if you can see what I mean. If you like, I'll be glad to help you any way I can.

I didn't want to be the first to say this same thing. It's obvious that you used a program with spell check to write this, but spell check will only show the correct spelling for the word you misspell. Like Sandi, I'd be more than willing to help you correct your report. Don't let it bother you; a lot of the mistakes you made are made by adults, too. I even spotted one error that I often do.

But over all, it sounds like you had a good time. I'm jealous. I didn't get to go...... again.

I've never been to a Con and I really enjoy learning about them from those who have. I didn't mean to sound critical. If I did, consider it a Grandmotherly trait. I honestly only intended to try to be helpful.

I posted here before I made one of my infrequent visits to the other place. I think proof-reading matters were pretty well covered there. I still think Kibbie did a fine job as far as organizing her thoughts and presenting them in an orderly way.
