JodanCon Day 3 is the saddest! It’s time to say goodbye to friends and family. It’s time to leave the hotel that offered us sanctuary for the past few days. It’s time to put our costumes in the closet until next year (or the next local con). Sunday feels bitter-sweet. Looking back over the weekend, we had the time of our lives, but all good things must come to an end.
Here are some highlights from today.
Matt Hatch recorded a live Dusty Wheel episode in the lobby. This amazing event—with lots of fan participation—is worth a watch. You can see all of Matt’s JordanCon videos here.
The Wheel of Time Track had a panel on ranking our favorite scenes in the Amazon Prime Video television show. Our own Kathy Campbell, as well as Maria Simons, gave their expert opinions.
The Charity Auction and Art Show Auction wrapped up. Winners collected their items, or suffered the bitter taste of defeat. I was so so happy to win a beautiful mixed medium artwork called “The Colors of My Sisters,” crafted by Lori of Morrow Makings.
I was looking forward to teaching a cross-stitching class and it did not disappoint! We had a great turn out and got to pass along our Wheel of Time 8-bid designs. We’ll have to do it again next year.
Finally, JordanCon is a charity. Any money raised is donated. This year’s recipient was the Mayo Clinic, to aid in the research of amyloidosis, the disease that took Robert Jordan from us. This year, $19,800 was raised! $13,500 was from the charity auction! The signed script page was auctioned for $1,055. We did amazing! I love how the fandom cares so deeply about giving back.

Now the con is over and it’s back to our daily lives. Hopefully we’ll be getting season 2 of the television show to tide us over until next year. Until then, keep up to date with Wheel of Time news and announcements by following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
