TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3714 - Vinnie and I raced down to Mission Valley after noontime yesterday, Sunday the 9th, right after church services.
That's because it was time for another meeting of the organizers of the San Diego Comic Fest! This time it was held at the Eaton Room at the Town and Country Resort in the Mission Valley area of San Diego.
Mike Towry, founder of this brand new revival fest, held the meeting, and there were 25 of us attending it.
I'll share just a few of the items that were covered at the meeting:
First, Peter Csanadi and I took photos of the meeting. My thanks to Peter for the photo used at the top right of this blog post! My photos will be uploaded at this special photo album at my Facebook fan page.
