We have just received word that Funimation and Digital Manga have offered to help sponsor Tosho-Con with some great prizes. We're very excited that we have support in helping our convention become bigger and better every year. Our volunteers are working hard to bring new surprises, and old favorites together.
Do you want to be part of the promotion? Come to Anime Cafe in costume, and your picture could end up in our 3 month calendar that will feature the 2010 Tosho-Con events and schedule. This is your convention, be part of what makes it special.

Zombie Daze and our Teens

Braiiins!!! Almost 70 teen zombies took part in the Zombie Daze program held in the teen room on Wednesday. Some decorated zombie ducks, while others played "Pin the Liver on the Zombie". We had some great Library Survival Plans, a movie and some creepy snacks.

We've started planning for the 2010 Tosho-con Anime Convention. Our theme has been chosen and this year it will be Black and White. Mascots are being drawn, volunteers are applying, and events are being planned. If you want to be part of our convention this year, please fill out an application and hand it in as soon as possible. They can be found in the teen room. The meetings are every 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 5-7. You must be from 13-18 to volunteer, no exceptions.

Join us, and our special guest Steve Turner from Giving Tree Music on November 17th at 5pm in the Children's program room for this special drum program. Drumming is easy, and you'll get a chance to learn how. We'll get the chance to make a lot of noise and find our beat.

As part of Banned Book Week, we will be showing a Banned Book Movie Marathon on Friday, October 2nd from 10am - 4pm. The movies we chose we based on books that are or have been recently contested. This year, we will be showing Bridge to Terebithia, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Blood and Chocolate. Movies will be showing in the Teen Room movie room.

So many people to thank!

With over 400 teens from all over Florida, we had another great convention this year. We want to thank everyone who came to help make it such a success. Every year you help us learn something new, and every year we grow to be something extraordinary. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did.

We want to thank the demonstrators, the vendors, the staff, the volunteers, and especially everyone who told a friend, got up at 6am on a Saturday morning or put on that costume just to make Tosho-con what it is. I think that would have to be everyone that walked in the door. Thanks!
