This End Up
Attendees of Cardboard*Con are not the sort who are easily impressed by champion meme-shapers like George Takei, former child actors like Wilt Whedon, or glib-tongued writers like Jox Weston†, creator of a popular space cowboy series called “Foxfire”. No, our fans are the sort of people who get excited about the feel of a well-folded flap, fabric-reinforced packing tape, the percussive sound of a craft knife shuddering across the grain of a corrugated panel.
Our guest list for 2017 is pending. Who do you want to see??? How come?
The List is Now Happoningn!!!!
As the star of such films as "Man in a Hole", "The Shoeshine Man Cometh", "Space People", and "Space People 2", Crisp may (or may not) ever find out about Cardboard*Con, but if he
After several lackluster appearances at Cardboard*Con Robbie went on a sabbatical and took stock of his remaining years and decided to leave the sci-fi convention circuit and dedicate his life to the advocacy of cardboard beards. He is now an unofficial spokesman for CardBeard*Con, which we have been informed has alarmed the founders of that convention. Expect fireworks this year when our conventions once again collide.
Captain Lazer is strange weirdo from beyond. Him blow up with cardboards and rush to danger with cardboard. Him is everywhere that cardboard is and nowhere that cardboard isn't. Him is Lazer. Call him anytime.
AlwaysLoveLorn is a 21st century model who enjoys video games, horror flicks, cardboard cosplay, and string cheese. She has appeared in panels at various sci-fi conventions and is a fan of the small con. When asked how she plans to deal with her fans at Cardboard*Con she arched an eyebrow and pointed at a nearby trash compacter.

She's been on the cover of Atlanta magazine, Creative Loafing, Tampa’s Weekly Planet and Cardboard Exploitation Weekly.

Her radio commentaries have appeared on National Public Radio (NPR), Georgia Public Broadcasting and the Canadian Hobo Channel (CHC). Asked if she would consider appearing once again at Cardboard*Con Hollis shouted "I HAVE A RESTRAINING ORDER, JERKWAD!!!". Stay tuned.
We are cautiously announcing the potential first appearance of our elusive Tech Ops Commander Thomas Kerns, who has been with our convention (at least in spirit) for more than X years (where X approaches infinity). Thomas trained for his position at a moderately popular Atlanta-based sci-fi convention held every Labor Day and serves as a member of a the elder Chattanooga convention Chattacon. Thomas enjoys couches.
Wes is a big wheel at Play On Con, an annual family-friendly four day fantasy and science fiction fandom convention held in the wilds of Alabama. Wes' passions include his wife, his children, border crossings, disorganization, flypaper, and words that rhyme with "rhyme". Wes does not currently endorse the use of the Eaton comma.

† - you know, Jim Womble, the guy who invented Buffer the Vampire Hunny? Foxfire? He directed Avenchers??? That guy? Totally overrated in our opinion.
