    Please for the love of Kermit let us have a Jim Henson convention!!!! I'm being dramatic but...hmm...see this is where I suck at writing letters. I wonder if we can ask anyone on here who is good at writing letters?

    - Lo0king at hosting a convention in honor of Jim Henson (Hen Con 2013) and his creations
    - Looking at a time of the summer of 2013 at the earliest, but curious if there are dates they would like
    - wondering if there were any venues they would suggest for hosting the convention in the city
    -Is there any role they would like to play in this convention to honor Jim Henson?
    -Maybe briefly describe why Greenville is our first choice for this convention (Butter them up)

    Hey, if we want muppeteers there it might be hard. They might still be filming the new movie then.

    So what are the chances they might be filming the new movie in Greenville and can just "hop" :) on over during their free time and make an apperance? :p

    I honsestly think that you can't expect a lot of the muppeteers there the first year..... the idea is this will grow. it won't hurt to put out letters inviting any and everyone ascociated with the muppets because you don't know who might show or be willing to do a panel (someone suggested Paul Williams to me in as he tends to show up to screenings and such I guess)

    In all seriousness I agree with DannyRWW I like we said start out small. The main thing is to just get it off the ground and then go from there. If it's a success then we can only expect over time it might eventually get bigger and then perhaps will have more of the puppeteers show up.

    Not to derail the subject but I'm gonna be putting up the "Jim Henson" memorial thread up later tonight. Since I don't know when I'll get to it tomorrow and want it up early enough so people can start posting pictures or videos if they want. Probably will put it in the "Classic Muppets" thread since I don't think many people check out the "Henson" thread.

    This might be a dumb question but what should the title of it be called? "Jim Henson Memorial"? or "Remembering Jim Henson"?
  13. panmanthe2nd

    I like "Remembering Jim Henson".

    I'm with Panmanthe2nd on that one

    I've made a start at a letter, and I'm not finding it very easy, so I'm going to have a little break and have dinner!
    I'll post draft one when I'm done (maybe later today, most likely tomorrow).

    Okay "Remebering Jim Henson" it is! I'll post it sometime this evening. :jim:

    Appreciate you taking the lead on that. Feel free to share or let us proofread or ask us for anything you need. Just a thought though...how are we to have this letter signed? I think it would sound more formal if it was not jsut an individuals signature but perhaps something along the lines of "Henson Convention Exploratory Commitee" or some such? I think it would give the letter a little more weight and put the pressure off you a little as well. And hey at this point we are a commitee whether we like it or not I suppose. (insert star wars commitee joke here)

    I was just thinking it's ashame were in different parts of the country/world. Because then we could get together and work as a team writing the letter. I also appericate you stepping up to the plate as they say. But I'll also help in anyway I can!

    I suggest putting it into the "Henson People" thread. It'll probably get moved there if you put it somewhere else.
  20. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Well I would but I don't think many people post in that thread do they? I don't see why we can't put it in the "Classic Muppets" thread. Well they can move it as they see fit but that's where it's gonna go for the time being. By the way I don't mean that as blunt as it sounds just I think more people would see it here before the "Henson" thread.
