What happened to the 11th? Is it not on the calendar next year for some dire reason?

Mike Rhode said...

I'm in favor of each month having an 11th, so I've fixed the press release.

Jonathan Baylis said...

I saw it as the 12th too on Comics Reporter.

But... I thought that maybe this had something to do with the 10th anniversary of 9-11?

Mike Rhode said...

No, it was a typo and Warren's issued a corrected release.

Jeff said...

Do we have to mail in our applications or will there be a link to email the applications and pay through Paypal?

Mike Rhode said...

I'm afraid this is the wrong place to ask about that, but I've forwarded your query to con organizer Warren Bernard.
