I know, it's been far too long between postings and updatings, so let's get things off on the right foot...

InConJunction was a tremendous success for Who-Net and its relaunch as Indiana's Doctor Who club. We celebrated the club's 20th anniversary with a big party and the music of former President Rick Lee, served up live panel discussions, ran a great round of no-holds-barred trivia, and, of course, had a packed house every night while we ran the entire second season of DOCTOR WHO with David Tennant. The crowd was incredibly responsive to the series, particularly to the last two, "Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday". James Robinson of Cincinnati, one of our newest members, graciously loaned us his movie screen and projector so we could super-size the finale of Year Two. The climax of "Army of Ghosts" squeezed a collective gasp from the crowd, followed by a standing ovation for "Doomsday" heartbreaking conclusion.

Above, you'll see the uniting of three former presidents with the schmuck who's running things now. And to your right, you'll see the lovely cake we had spackled with great moments by the Whoosier Network and our vast roster of members. That we've gotten to 20 years and we're still growing is an amazing feat.

Yeah, and it makes me feel like an old man. I hope you're happy.

Serenading us through the Saturday night festivities was President Emeritus Rick Lee. who kept us all entertained with his wonderful satirical tunes such as "Doctor Who Shuffle" and "A Long Time Ago". Somehow, he snookered me into getting up front and joining him in a chorus of "The Lumberjack Song" and "Where, O Where Are You Tonight?"

What an amazing weekend... Who-Net has started its first steps forward.

Next update, we'll talk Who-Net T-shirts, future DVD, and the return of an old friend we haven't seen in more than fifteen years....
