Attendance at SoonerCon?

In response to Paul C's question/comment about SoonerCon attendance -- did we have more attendees in 2008 than 2007? -- Soonercon Chair Jerry Wall told me,

Yeah. I think it seemed like less because we didn't have that ultra crowded area near registration... so it seemed less full there. But the exhibitor's hall was fairly busy. We also had more per day (more 3 day memberships vs 1 day, so people came more often). Rocky Horror was also totally full this year, while last year we had plenty of room, and SinnerCon was packed. Since some of those folks didn't spend much time in the con during the day, that may also have made it look less crowded.

It did seem less crowded. The game room was packed, probably twice as many if not more than last year.

I know the Trek con in Tulsa hurt the Star Trek fanbase numbers.

All the panels I sat in on had at least 8-15 people. I enjoyed it and it seemed more organized than any of the last couple of years.

Can't wait till next year.
