Hello friends! This weekend we were in Evansville, Indiana for RaptorCon which also happens to be our final convention stop of 2022! This year has been an incredible experience! I’ve learned so much, and so much fun at all the conventions, book fairs and other events!
RaptorCon was a great little convention. I’m told it’s just the second year for the convention, and it’s slowly getting bigger and better. We are planning on being back for 2023!
This convention was especially memorable for me because I was able to meet actor Jason Marsden. If you’re a fan of 90s pop culture, you’d recognize Jason from the sitcoms Full House and Boy Meets World. You’d especially recognize his voice as he is the official voice of Goofy’s son Max in A Goofy Movie (and countless other Disney projects). He is also the voice of the boy-turned-cat Thackery Binx in Hocus Pocus. Jason posed for a picture with his copy of Super Penguin and signed an autograph for me. He walked around the vendor floor too and stopped by our booth to chat for a little bit.
When I was a youngster, I watched A Goofy Movie quite a bit. It was one of my favorite Disney animated movies, and one I still enjoy today. I even have the movie’s soundtrack on my phone (listening to Powerline as I type this, if you know, you know).
After the drive home, I spent some time thinking about all the people I was able to meet in 2022. Not just the celebrities that were influential parts of my childhood, but also new fans eager to read the books and new friends we made on the vendor floors. I’m eagerly looking towards our 2023 Tour and can’t wait for all the memories we will make in Year 2!
