    Hello everyone,

    So, here is another project I would like to offer up. To everybody that attended BotCon 2005, I would like for someone to write an article about BotCon from a fans perspective for the Official Club Newsletter.

    Now, let me give you the details on what the article should and should not be. It should not be a Fun Publications love fest "oh, they are so great, we love everything they do." If I wanted that I would have one of the newsletter staff peeps write it :D  just kidding. Now, on the other side, it should not be a critiquing of the show either, "this could have been done better, this event was boring" and so on.

    What I want is a fans perspective of the show, what you did, what you enjoyed, who you liked meeting, and talk about the experience. Overall, the article should encompass the whole event and should give highlights of the convention while also giving the reader a personal insight into the show.

    Criteria:
    - You will have needed to have been a pre-registrant and were at the show at least 3 of the 4 days.

    - You will have needed to have attended the Dinner, Casino night and at least two of the panels.

    The article should give a run down of all the events, a summary of each event, and what you did at the event. Also, be sure to talk a little about the exclusives, seeing the upcoming toys from Hasbro and any other relevant action figure news from the show

    Be sure to touch base with me before you start writing this. Depending on how may submissions I receive, I may incorporate more than just 1 persons take on the show, but right now I am planning on only using one.
    Also, if you have a picture of yourself at the show that would be great too as I would include that in the article as well.

    Any questions, ask them here or drop me a pm.

    Thanks a ton! Pete

    Hmmm

    Okay I meet all your criteria except for being at the casino night Pete.As I wasn't at that event :redface2: 

    Does that disqualify me or can we find a middle ground?As I'd like to contribute

    Also out of curiosity,how big of an article are you expecting 1 page or more then 1 page
