50 Days of Dragon Con Day 44
Every year Monday is kind of a bummer. It is the last day of the con, I am exhausted from 3 hours of sleep for 3 days. Many people pack up and leave for their drive home. I go home on Tuesdays. On Monday there is still programming but it usually ends around 3. Over the years I have had trouble finding good things to do on this last day. Many of the tracks do a "how did we do panel". These are great if you have been to many panels for that track. I tend to wander between hotels and tracks and, well, the con. With all of this wandering I do not feel all that great contributing when I did not go to the majority of their content. One year I decided to go to one of these re-cap panels. That last minute decision was one of the best I have made at the con. I went to a Tolkein Track end of year recap panel on a Monday afternoon. So far, all of the last panels on Monday in the Tolkein, non...zero...zilch have ended at their usual time. They have all gone over. Last year Larry the track director showed us pictures of his trip to New Zealand. They were on the set of one or the Hobbit movies. SOOOOOO cool. For a Tolkein nerd such as myself, this was AMAZING! If you are still at con Monday afternoon you should check it out. This is a great way to end a perfect weekend.
