Marscon, Feb 29-Mar 2 2008CE

Marscon is a science fiction convention held this year at the Holiday Inn Select in Bloomington MN.
Marscon 2008's attendance leaped to 841, and people came for one aspect of the convention and completely missed other parts.
I tried to visit, however briefly, most of the con, but missed some aspects as well.
