KnightCon my view

on Wed Oct 05, 2011 5:39 pm



WOW guys! what a turn out, you all looked very smart on the friday night VIP and gave the guests a real warm friendly welcome, the friday night ran smooth, apart from the hold up with the motorways being closed,

Saturday was bigger and better than we could have ever imagined and tried to make it so everyone who attended had somthing to relate to, again the guests were very gracious and polite with all they spoke to, posed for photographs and made sure they met as many fans as possible, we managed to keep the costs of the signings down, so the guests were compensated for coming 6000 miles and traveling 2 days to be with us all.
David as you all know was not anounced, Rob and myself decided that this would be a thank you for the people who have always supported the event buy purchacing tickets for the various things going on, and with a low cost for the whole weekend we are proud that a lot of you bought them.
David too was amazing, he was upset that he had to leave to do another PA booked that evening, but signed as much stuff and took as many photos as logistically possible, he did a great speach in the VIP lunchion and made sure the other guests had just as much attention and fun on the day.

Guys this is one for the history books and i am sure cannot be replicated again anytime soon, the schedule went a little out of the window because of the large number of press that wanted to make sure we had nice articles and so on.

No other event has had 3out of the 4 remaining main cast memebers together at once
Peter Parros humbly chose us to be his first ever Knight Rider event appearance was a great guy and WOW he hasnt changed at all
Rebecca Holden once again made sure that you all spoke with her and made everyones event so much more delightfull, words cannot describe that lady she is delightfull
And Mr Scheffe, is simply amazing, he was so pleased that we had KITT cars coming from all over europe to come to the show

We again thank you for supporting the show and hope you all had as much fun as possible

It was an awesome event Steve, a truly remarkable achievement and I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I owe you, Rob and the rest of the KC crew a sincere and heart felt "Thank You" for some amazing memories (especially your grand entrance into the Cinema for the messages video with that HUGE tub of popcorn, PRICELESS Laughing ).

I think you are wrong about one thing though, as awesome as KC11 was, I'm certain that if you and Rob have anything to do with it you'll not only replicate it you'll surpass it for KC12!!!! That is just what you and Rob are like, and if anyone can it will be you guys.

Thanks again,

Tony

it was on the sunday morning before we started leaving mate, so sadly you were already back at home !

we did say we wanted a big group pic and all the KITT's in a line but that just couldnt happen this year, we should def make it a priority for next year, like a proper huge group photo taken from a cherry picker type thing, lol

what can I say? it was fantastic, amazing, marco and I had a wonderfull weekend, we have received the warmest welcome we could have!! we really felt part of this amazing family which is the Knight Rider all around the world. The journey for us was very long (12 hours going and back to Italy) but it is nothing if we think what an amazing time we had and not onlly with the wonderfull guests (some of them are almost friends now) but with all you guys !!! thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooo much !!! or in italian a huge grazie !!!!!!!!! I love you
as I already advised on fb, we have made more than 800 pics, we are checking all of them and working on some of them. We have also made some films. Tomorrow we have to meet in Milan with the other KRI founder members, we will show them all pics and films, we will talk with them about you guys and this fantastic experience. And I hope next year this bad economic crise will end and many other guys of the Knight Rider Italia can come with us and can meet all of you. It's such a great pleasure !!!!
personally I would like to thank you so much for your precious friendship, it means soooooo much to me !!!
love hugs from Italy, silvia Smile

All in all i had a great weekend. For me, it was meeting up with all the people that i have become friends with over the years, that is what makes Knightcon special for me.

I'll write a full review when i get more time at the weekend.

Was turely a amazing event!!! meeting up with you guys is a real treat every year, the passion and genuiness of everone is great to be around.... and the occasionally bit of banter never hurt! lol
The meet was great, the cars were great, the stars were great!! I think Steve and Rob and all involved did a great job managing everything... Yes the schedule was a bit on the fly but think the nature of having guests like that is always gonna have that. Sure if you continue doing this you'll have it down to an art.
Like to say thanks to Steve cos unfortantly hardly got a chance to speak to you... and seems abit rude not too have.... so BIG thanks from me Very Happy
Absoutle respect to all the "big" travellers from Italy, Germany, Holland etc... really good seeing everyone... as well as a special thanks to all the owners who made the show what it was
I know Steve says it cant be replicated, I know that if they do a Knightcon 2012 they'll aim higher again... tell me im wrong???
No matter how big/small future events are the people make the event!!
the photo says it all!!
