History

Mark Sander: This was my first SwanCon. Rob & Leece Master-Smith had badgered me until I agreed to go. It was only going to be $50, because they had a special for first time attendees. And I haven't stopped coming since. 2002 a sponsor donated a pallet of out of code Gingerbread. So there were boxes of it sitting everywhere. As a poor graduate with little money (and there were quite a few this year because of the discounted 'newbies' membership) I ate Gingerbread for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. And then at the end of the con I won the 'newbie' free membership for 2003 competition! And a free t-shirt!
