Melody and I were absolutely staggered by the CONvergence meeting. This is the kind of efficiency and smoothness that Anime Detour needs to acquire real quick lest we go under in a welter of missed details and poorly-trained volunteers. I'm hoping that more than a few of us will sign on as volunteers and see how a large convention is run, because this is stuff we're going to need to know very very soon. Like yesterday. Their pre-reg count was ~1200 as of May 15 (not counting whatever dribbles in over the next few days that was postmarked the 15th) and I think they have a real good shot at hitting 2000 this year.
