The biggest, most fun event of the year for this part of the world is less than a week away and I can not wait! Not the usual huge list  of celebrities this year, particularly no notable Star Wars guests.  But it should still be an awesome event with plenty of Star Warsy stuff to do and see.  If you are a reasonable drive from Western New York, I would certainly recommend this event as being worth the trip, time and money. 
Of course, I will be at the AFA booth all weekend.  We will have our full display of dozens of ultra sabers to check out. Make sure you make a point to stop by, say hello and talk some sabering.  This year instead of teaching Light Saber classes, we will be doing a saber demo and live dueling on the main stage Saturday and Sunday- should be a wild time!
Here a few cool videos from last year- by the event coordinators, a cos play feature and the AFA summary I made.  Hope to see some people from the forum again this year!

If you ever make it up here Infinit, we will be sure to have you come by the Academy and show some of that spinning!

What another great Con this year!  Met lots of great people.  Spent too much money.  Had a lot of laughs.  I am so drained I can't even imagine how some of you do the Con Circuit all year.  I also cannot imagine ever thinking an event like that could be routine.  The over stimulation, lighting, talking, standing... everything! I will get around to putting together a video of the weekend, saber demos and dueling, but for now just have time to share a few quick pics:
Me with a hero and a villain? Or is it the other way around now?

Of course I had to compare my braid with the Kalessi

Me doing some dueling

Towards the end of Sunday there was a spontaneous gathering of 80s types in front of the Back to the Future car.  We handed out sabers to the Turtles and Transformers and mayhem ensued. 


OK, time to lay down in a dark room.

Howdy neighbor, plenty of other saber enthusiasts in your back yard.
Looking through the photo gallery from the Buffalo News coverage and stumbled on a nice shot of some of the gang.
