    I'm a lurker, this is my first time posting. (Loss of forum virginity.. so painful)

    The reason I'm here is PAXEC. I live in MA and I'm so wicked excited. If/when an application gets posted to be an enforcer I will be ready!

    Due to some of the powers that be, I'm going to be helping out with a con in Seattle in April (nah, I'm sure none of you know what I'm talking about). I'm going to see how that is, and if I like it.. and then maybe fi they do want a few more Enforcers in '09, talk to a couple of the people I know to see if I could get a referal. I may not be a dude, nor will you catch me in a Utilikilt, but what about a skirt? ^_~

    I almost wore a skirt for PAX this year, but I didn't get it finished in time. It will hopefully make an appearance next year!

    (P.S. we like girl enforcers.)

    Emerald City ComiCon, yes?

    Utilikilt does do custom women's sizing. ;) I've got a Scottish kilt, though, that basically looks like a long skirt.

    I would like to get even just a taste of PAX Enforcing, but I worry that about that time next year I'll be too busy planning my trip to Europe, which begins in September... And I don't think I'd want my first to be in 2010. I think I'd feel doubly clueless as a first-time Enforcer in a city and venue I've never visited (though I guess the latter part of the concern is something I'd be sharing, heh).

    It'd be awesome if they opened up the enforcer recruitment for PAX '09...I wanted to apply for '08 but no open recruitment...sad. :(

    I know 4 enforcers now....w00t! lol So hopefully that will help when it comes time to recommendations. I can't wait for PAX '09! :D

    Let's see. I remember hearing about somebody who got fired, and he lost his pass and was told not to come back ... but I hadn't heard of the guy before so I don't know if it's real. I definitely know of people who were told not to come back and that they would no longer be considered for Enforcing. I also know of one individual who had their shifts pulled and told that they could enjoy PAX but their services were no longer required.

    Are you:

    A. A resident of Seattle, willing to take a bullet for Gabe and Tycho(and their families) when they do the public appearances thing?

    B. Happy with the prospect of being a cut-rate Secret Service agent/security guard?

    C. Experienced as a bouncer/bodyguard?

    D. Possessing Personal Hygiene?

    E. Possessing good enough eyes to see the glint of the assasin's barrel?

    F: A muscular, intimidating dude?

    IF SO, THEN YOU COULD BE AN ENFORCER.

    A. Not quite

    B. Yes

    C. I'll be working at Sakura-con.. so I'll technically have some experience by the time PAX '09 rolls around

    D. Of course

    E. As long as I have my glasses on

    F: No...

    Speaking of which Snickers, you may have to be in charge of the actual MMT itself this coming year (or someone else if you wish, but you get first dibs ;) ), as I promised Moe that I'd go on the CCST now that I'll be coming over from New Hampshire.

    I can still run the pre-planning and voting for destinations, signups etc... of course, but I'll need someone who'll actually be there instead of driving across the country to make sure everyone gets everywhere on time. =) You kind of got thrown into that defacto last year when my flight got in late/I went through the epic detour for additional pants. (smacks forehead) =) And I'll meet up with you guys when you do the CCST meet-up.

    Oh... and on the MMT subject, are you coming to Boston for PAX in 2010? Be sure to plan for coming over/bringing the rest of the gang (kicking and screaming if you must ;) ). The MMT there is going to be epic! =) (EDIT: Not that the current MMT isn't epic... but having the MMT in an entirely new place is going to be a blast =) )

    Do be careful though, I'm not sure if there's actually going to be a CCST to PAX 2010 (it sounds like the path one would have to take from Seattle to Boston would be rife with danger during the time period when PAX Boston would be going on). It may be best to plan as if there won't be a "Reverse CCST" as they say. =)

    It'll be great to have you guys out there! Yay! =)

    My apologies for the minor thread derailment. =) Carry on with Enforcer conversation. =)

    Ahh, the CCST. Thats understandable! I'd be honored to take up that mantle... I have been thinking about applying to enforce however. Having met so many awesome enforcers in the last month, and considering all of HoG wants to enforce, I'm thinking pretty hard on what I want to do for PAX '09. If I decide not to, or don't get accepted, or however it turns out that I don't enforce, I'll throw myself gung ho into MMT and other event planning and preparation.
