Knightcon 2012 - Thankyou!

on Sun Sep 02, 2012 6:46 pm
Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed myself this year at Knightcon! I came last year for the first time and it drove me to take the plunge and buy a KITT, now this year to be there (albeit without my KITT sadly....next year I can promise you he will be there!) it was so nice to finally put faces to names of all you guys that I have spoken to endlessly during my build and get to chat to people and enjoy some good times Very Happy
Obviously the highlight of my weekend was the amazing and unforgettable VIP night, which was so special to both me and Laura as it was the perfect place to propose! To be able to say I proposed in front of not only the whole UK Knight Rider scene is cool enough, but to have it announced by the amazing and SO lovely Rebecca Holden and with Peter Parros and Mike Scheffe there too was just so awesome! Thankyou so much to Steve Fawcett and all the others who were in on the surprise, it was seamless and went so perfectly! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it so very special! Laura was over the moon and thanks you all so much!
It was the most memorable weekend of the year by far and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Come home with loads of pics which are now on Facebook, but will post on here too for people I have yet to add on there lol!
And to everyone else who welcomed us into the group so openly and made us both feel so welcome - Thankyou so so much! Its so nice to be a part of this group of like minded people and be able to spend time with you guys and not just chat on here and facebook!
Rik, thankyou again for rescuing Laura from her shoes ha ha! That was the funniest thing I saw all night you trying to cut her out of those laces with your keys! Very Happy
I cannot wait to see all the pictures everyone took! If anyone has any pictures of my proposal or any of me with the stars I would LOVE to see them - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - and would be hugely appreciated!
All I can say is I cannot wait for next years event in whatever form it may take, but every year it just gets better and better! Next year I will deffo book the hotel for the saturday night as well as I felt so bad leaving everyone else to tidy up and would have been nice to have that extra night of socialising! So sorry I couldnt stay!
But yes, thanks again to Steve, Rob and everyone else that brings this event to us year after year! Its amazing and your hard work and dedication is tremendous!
Thank you guys Very Happy

I also want to say THANK YOU to everyone, It was the first time for me to be at KNIGHTCON and the welcome Eli and I got from everyone was amazing, and like Tim said to finally put faces to the people I have talked to for ages on here was great.
The event was AMAZING and I enjoyed myself and learnt so much about building KITT while I was talking to everyone I definately feel a lot more confident and knowledgeable about the whole process,
BIG THANKS TO RIK, SIMON & MIKE, the talks we had were great, I only hope my KITT will eventually look as great as your do Smile

And important lesson learnt, NEVER MAKE A CASH BET WITH A KNIGHT RIDER FAN, that will haunt me for a long time (won't it Alan) Smile

THANKS FOR THE MOST AMAZING WEEKEND I'VE HAD ALL YEAR, AND I'LL SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR Smile

I had a great weekend, was great to see everyone again, i think we would have to have a week long knightcon though to be able to have the time to get round everyone and have a proper chat, its just impossible !

mega thanks to the knightcon crew for putting it all on again though Smile

ive put a load of pictures on facebook, and now im going for a bath and then bed coz im knackered from it all and the drive home with my ruined knee which is killing me but enough whinging, lol

A big THANK YOU also from my side!!

Many thanx to Steve and Rob for making this unbelieveable weekend true once more! I am impressed again, how it is possible to organise such a great event - and it's even getting better and better every year!

This year we really got the impression, that thanks to the KNIGHTCON with all the attenders from England, Italy, Netherlands, Germany and more we are now part of the big and great international Knight Rider scene, and that's a fantastic feeling! It was nice to see and greet you all again! Meeting the stars Rebecca, Peter and Michael in this extensive way was just awesome. Watching Peter driving the convertible or taking Michael to the hotel at 2 o'clock in the morning with a convoy of three KITTs saturday night was also big fun! alien

Hope to stay in touch with you guys and see you all next year!

Many greetings from Germany,
Cheers,
Jörn

I must admit, it is, and always has been, the people that make Knightcon such a great event for me. The rest of the stuff, stars, cars, characters etc is just icing on the cake.

It was great to see everyone again and i'm always amazed at the distance people will travel to be part of the event.

I would also like to say thanks to everybody that put the effort in to make the event fantastic, it was great catching up with everybody again and the guys that have traveled from outside the UK have to be commended for coming the distance they do and with their cars!

Yes, you are completely right!
Btw, the distance is not a problem: Thanx to the ferry [Rotterdam<->Hull] people from NL or from Germany close to NL (like me) only have to drive a little bit more than 300km altogether. Compared to the fun we have, this is nothing! Smile So I hope next year there will be again more guys from the "continent" (last year 5 KITTs from NL+DE, this year 7 KITTs from NL+DE, next year...?) (oh, and what's about some french guys? Smile )
But anyway, the most important thing is to see you all again! You are SOOO great guys!!

Cheers,
Jörn
