The Beginning Of This Blog

With Sac-Con coming up next week, I decided to make a different blog for all the Sacramento Conventions that I attend - that would both include Sac-Anime and Sac-Con.

On the horizon is Sac-Anime in July, and this year the summer show will be at the Red Lion Inn Hotel - it's next door to Arden Fair Mall and about a 10 minute drive from downtown Sacramento. (I've only attended two other Sac-Anime summer shows - one was in 2005 over at the Sunrise Mall, and 2006 was back at the Scottish Rite Center.) I haven't made my hotel reservations yet, but I will before the June 15th cut-off date to be "VIP."

The funny thing is that it's only been about 2 years since I started attending both Sac-Con and Sac-Anime. The first one that I attended was Sac-Con in the spring of 2005 - back when I was a junior in high school. I went with a group that I knew out of high school, and we didn't stay the whole entire time because we got bored pretty quickly. But before that, the only other convention I had attended was Anime Expo back in 2002.

Both these conventions have been nice to me, and ever since then I've been enclosed in the close-knitted family that has formed. This is where I met BSahpire and Francine, two people that showed me the ropes of being part of a convention. Over time, I got to know them, and they helped me out in return. Since the spring of '05, I've never missed one convention in Sacramento (I think). It was sad though when Francine retired at Sac-Anime in January of this year, but I still consider her as part of this family that has grown to me.
