I just wanted to say a big thank-you to the organizers of Hal-Con. When things went awry on Saturday you were the first ones to call yourselves out on it and try to make the best of a shitty situation. You did what you could with the mess you were faced with, immediately issuing refunds and swapping tickets to try to ease the sting of disappointment and frustration. I have to give props to the volunteers that directly delt with the fallout and kept their cools as much as possible - that's not easy. I know there will be lots of people complaining about Saturday's debacle, but I just wanted to let you know that there are some understanding people out there, that despite being frustrated and inconvienced, will continue to support future Hal-Con's. After all, Hal-Con is still relatively new to the scene, so to speak, so there's bound to be a few hiccups along the way to what will surely be one of Canada's biggest and best sci-fi/fantasy cons. —An understanding first-timer
