To all the valued members of Clockwork Alchemy,
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The reviews of Clockwork Alchemy 2013 have been far and away exemplary. It is humbling to have words like "epic", "special" and "wonderful" used to describe our little soiree. Repeatedly, we heard the words "best con ever" used to give scope to what had been accomplished. While that is a bold statement and is highly subjective, it still gives the staff of Clockwork Alchemy an understanding of just how much you enjoyed our modest show.
No convention is with out it's difficulties. But on a whole, the con went relatively smoothly, so much so that one of our guests of honor remarked that it was running so well it did not feel like a con in only it's second year, but like one in it's fifth or sixth.
All our department staff and department heads contributed greatly to make Clockwork Alchemy the extraordinary event it was in 2013 and did a remarkable job, from our Registration department (which was our first time having a fully functioning registration), to our Special Events, Artists Bazaar, Western Martial Arts, Programing, IT, Logistics, Volunteers, the Alchemist Tea Parlour, Info Desk and our two valiant co-chairs (who probably lost more sleep than any of us).
A big thank you to our amazing guests: Kaja Folio, Steam Powered Giraffe, Jake Von Slatt, The Nathaniel Johnstone Band, James Carrot, Poplock Holmes, Tony Hicks, Unwoman, Mac McGowen, Kinetic Steam Works, the writers in the Authors Salon and the people contributing their time and effort to being panelists and running workshops.
Lastly, we would like to thank you the fans, for you are why we endeavor to make such a memorable event happen. Your boundless energy keep us the staff going during con, your feedback and valuable critiques help us improve the con for the following year. You are as integral part of Clockwork Alchemy as the staff, and we salute you. This little con is not as an act of ego, but a labor of love. We love that you love it as much as we do.
We are already at work coming up with new and innovating programing and seeking out interesting and talented guests to make Clockwork Alchemy even better. Thank you for making it a success and please join us again over Memorial Day Weekend at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose CA for Clockwork Alchemy 2014: Alternate Empires.
