feytaline 0 Posted August 11, 2008 Report Share Posted August 11, 2008 Hello all, Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Hall Costume Contest. We had an excellent turnout despite the very-last-minute room change, and I really hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Please leave feedback so Otakon can keep working to make this contest even better. A lot of feedback from last year went into consideration when planning for this year, so please rest assured you're not typing for no reason. Good and bad, we want to hear it all. Although there are some things that were out of our control (like the biggest one--the room change) we want to know how these things affected you and how we can improve how we handled them. And if you have any questions, please ask them here! Of course, now I should take a moment to answer why we were not in the VIP West after all the emails letting you know we were. Thursday evening, a pipe burst in the VIP lounge the guests use down by the fountains. Although BCC staff were trying hard to dry out the floor, the room was unusable due to possible mold and a heavy chemical smell from the cleaners. The only other rooms that could be used as a guest lounge were the VIP East and West on the 400 level, so we were booted. We spent most of Thursday night looking for a replacement room, and ended up with the BCC security's office. I truly hope no one ended up missing the contest because of the change. We let the info desk know, put up small signs in the areas (it was too late for Publications to print large ones) and gophers were stationed to stop everyone going up the stairs letting them know of the contests' move. On behalf of Otakon I apologize for this. Once again I'd like to thank all who participated and encourage you to come back next year! And please, let us know what you think!
