Around the Con
August 30th - September 3rd 2001
[report by TK878 / edited by Avatar]

Dragon Con held in Atlanta is esentially the largest science-fiction/fantasy convention in the world. The Hyatt and the Marriot hotels in downtown Atlanta were used to hold the convention's events, panels, dealers rooms, etc. There is no one specific fandom is focused on, but the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion made it known that Star Wars is a force to be reckoned with.

Quite a few members of the Canadian Garrison (501st.CA) and friends made the long trip from Canada to Atlanta to attend the convention. TB878 (me), TB741, Avatar (Rebel Legion), TT501 (as an Imperial officer), Aurra "Hillary" Sing & her brother Rich, TR1125, and our favorite Rebel Pilot Mookie (Rebel Legion).

Please feel free to look at this and other sections for small summaries of each event and photos (click on the thumbnails for a larger full view of the pictures).
