Warpstock 2007 Is Now History

ArchiveSunday, November 18, 2007 -- Warpstock 2007 has wrapped up this eleventh annual event at the Valhalla Inn Toronto.

To all those who attended, we hope that this year's edition has met your needs and expectations.

To those who didn't make it, you were missed and we hope to see you next year at the twelfth Warpstock at a location to be announced at a later date.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to all those who have made Warpstock 2007 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada successful. This appreciation extends

  • to the Event Team lead by Jim O'Connor,
  • to the presenters,
  • to the exhibitors,
  • to those who donated items for the draw,
  • to those who helped with sponsorships, and
  • most of all, to the attendees.

It requires the dedicated efforts of many volunteers to put on an event such as Warpstock and make it a success. How do we measure success? We measure success from the comments and support of those who attended. The fact that we have provided an interesting and informative event for our attendees is our primary goal.

We hope that all who attended have a safe journey home and look forward to getting together again at the next Warpstock to meet old friend and make new ones.

John W. Edwards. President, Warpstock Corporation
