I don't have any stats (new pre-supporters, mailing list additions) to report, but I was impressed with the number of folks who shared the burden of sitting at the table. I was worried that it would be all Mike, all the time. (It was mostly Mike, of course, but I suspect he was worried too.)

VikingCon VIII (1987) was held Easter weekend. It had a large guest list (six GoHs), ample programming (four full tracks), a color program cover (featuring Julia Lacquemont artwork), and wasn't as well attended as planned (maybe 400 people, but seemingly planned for close to 600 people). Not a failure, but it led VikingCon planners to conclude Easter was right out for future events.
I laugh now, considering Norwescon (3,000-ish members) has been held Easter weekend for some time now.
