    So I am posting this in hopes of seeing if anyone in Colonial is interested in going to my local con seeing as my mk 1 armor was a huge hit I figured some real good experience and build help would push more halo build here in the Twin Tiers/Finger lake region.

    When: September 16th and 17th
    Where: Elmira, NY
    Place:First Arena.

    I had sent something to Krissy last August about who to contact for a booth and panel;because people where begging for the 405th to show up. Figured loads of time now. Plus I can put some people up in my apartment to save on your costs.If I figured right about 4 to 5 people max.

    Just trying to help with events this year. Thanks all.

    Update: Ok all i got a booth for us and with that said all you passes are free of charge. but setup is September 15th. I would like more people to stay Sunday to help wrap up but i understand if you can't. Saturday is the big deal with the costume contest and other fun the are planning on. The main area will be for the artists, special guests, and vendors namely. All cosplayers will be be out in the corridor headed in. So please feel free to bring your own cards and we will try to pass off the 405th goodies. No raffles or big stuff yet, lets just get in get known and spread our awesome ways!.

    Harri51 do you have a website for me to add to the 2017 con list? I keep getting the 2016 page for Twin Tiers in Elmira.

    Its over 4 hrs away for me which isn't so bad....Its just on my Sabbath (Fri into Sat) so I'm sorry, I can't make it. Its one of the many cons I can't attend.

    If I end up coming, I'll probably only come down for that Saturday to save on cash.

    So here is what is happening. We will be in the conway with all the other cosplay groups and cosplayers. No panels but if we wanna do small demos we can. I honestly say no. Lets focus on fun and recruiting if you wanna bring props and what not do so. I wanna keep people on the floor at all times and also one at the booth so we can figure on how we wanna rotate. Friday night the 15th is setup time. Now i know the doors open to VIP at 11am on saturday usually and the rest at noon and after party is next door at a bar/pub food.there are some food places around to eat and also the concession stand in the arena. This is in a hockey arena after all. I will have more details. If you are interested send me a facebook message and i'll keep you informed.

    We should be able to come help with set up. As far as I know, Kusak and I are both off of Friday so can head down earlier in the day. I will double check his info on that.
