Ta dah! Here is your castle co-ordinator! I am very busy with the PR aspects for the Con, but I am stepping up. I am looking for some help, especially at the con itself. Any of you there two years ago may remember the TV and radio stuff I did. I anticipate more of that this year. So I would love to have boots-on-the-ground help especially on Friday. If anyone is willing, PM me.
In two weeks I will know the dimensions and measurements of the display space. We will be in the same room as BF '07, and I anticipate a similar setup. I am pushing for a display that will have an open area "inside" the display. I think it gives a good base during the public hours, though following BF tradition we will have just Sunday as a public day. Lots more time to stage the display.
So let's brainstorm. We haven't staged a large battle since BF '07. They are crowd pleasers, are we ready for that?
As a basic concept I can see a bad guy castle on one side (in a desert setting perhaps), a good guys castle at the other end (a more classic medieval setting), and a battle in the intervening space, as well as multiple feet of landscaping, forests, roads, water, and assorted madness and absurdity.
What would you like to do?
I had a wacky idea about a monochromatic 375/6075 Yellow castle display. A classic yellow castle, and a blue, red, clear, white, whatever colors we could build one of.
I would also like to plan a castle get together. I was thinking that one of the Saturday classroom-type sessions could be the right thing. One of the most fun con-things for me now is to get to know new people, and know old friends better.
