Greetings my fellow Audubonese,
As one of the founding members of the Audubon Park Official Fan Club and its current secretary, I’m happy to report the events of our most recent convention held in Gonadville, Indiana.
The fine folks at the Hill Crest Inn Motel were very helpful and welcoming. The soup was very good. Sadly our scheduled keynote speakers, Robert P. Biggers (A.P. Keyboardist) and Richard Lindley Cumberbum (Nahm family official biographer) could not attend as both were detained at the Canadian border on suspicion of ferretting.
Our Fanclub President, Gordish Horton, opened the Fancon by leading us in a rounding chorus of “The loud half hour”.
Several panels were held on various subjects, including Lyric Interpretation: Bees=Imperialism?; Tone: Kalb vs. Fripp vs. Frehley; Precursers: The Hundred, V. Sirin, Pete, El Debarge; Center of the Universe: The Role of Center College; Flem: Pro vs. Con.
The annual Fancon sing along was led by Harry Hurtz and his visible hand of rectitude.
The Audubon Park Fancon is ultimately about meeting and having fun with your fellow Audubon Park fanatics:
Henry Jurdt, Band Member Look Alike Contest Winner, Matt Kalb division
The Oregon Contingent at the Banquet:
Those Wacky Floridians!
Let the dancing begin!
The Wandering Yarberlers lead us in their own festive interpretations of Audubon Park classics as well as songs by Christopher Cross, Soul II Soul and their own originals.
The Junior Friends of A.P Dance Squad
Sadly, it all had to end Sunday. Time to say goodbye to all your friends. See you next year at AUDUBON PARK FANCON 2005 in the Quad Cities, Iowa!
P. Myrtle Hogglesmith, Secretary, Audubon Park Official Fan Club
