Sci-Fi on the Rock

Hi folks,

Last weekend myself and Mandi attended, and hosted an event and panel at this years Sci-Fi on the Rock for our Welcome to Deadhouse Goosebumps book club (#GBCGhostNextDoor on Twitter).


This adventure all started with suggestions from our spouses. So, we came up with a few ideas, went through the application process and waited. We are new to the event and panelist, and our YouTube book club is under a year old - so we figured that we didn't have much of a shot of being accepted.  Then the email came. We were accepted as panelist. For both ideas that we submitted.  Oh snap! Oh snap! OH SNAP!

Planning the panels was super fun.  We love the Goosebumps series and we were able to create a plan that we were both happy with.  The "Reader Beware, You Choose the Scare!" event was first - it was the first evening of the event, and scheduled to be 2 hours long.

The attending crowd could be spotted around the town quite easily before and after the concert as most concert-goers were dawning neon from head to toe, crimped big hair, and other 90's fashions.

While the music was fantastic at the I Love The 90's tour, I was disappointed that there was no merchandise for sale. I believe here is where I raise my hand and admit that I have a concert t-shirt collection, right?  I had my heart set on adding a Salt-N-Peppa t-shirt to my collection.

Well, this year, the concert folks learned a…
