HeroesCon – June 16-18, 2023

HEROES CONVENTION was founded in 1982 by Shelton Drum, owner of Charlotte’s Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find comics shop. Since then the convention has become famous for its comics-first and family-friendly atmosphere, where fans can mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. Boasting an incredible guest list built mainly on reputation and goodwill, HeroesCon is known nationwide as a “must” on the summer schedule, drawing fans, exhibitors, and creators from every region of the country to the Charlotte Convention Center [Charlotte, NC].” hereosonline.com/heroescon/

The Klingon Assault Group, spearheaded by the IKV Executioner, has been attending this convention for many years. Typically we raised funds for Carolina Caring, formerly known as Catawba Valley Palliative Care and Hospice, located in Newton, NC. Since 2014 we have conducted a double fundraiser by including Kwanzaa Family Inn women’s shelter located in Lenoir, NC in our fundraising efforts. We like to give back to the communities we have conquered.

Set Up — Thursday June 15

Keela and Martok packed their respective conveyances and met up at Martok’s human place of employment. Together they journeyed without incident to the Charlotte Convention Center, but got separated near the underground entrance to the building. It was a long wait to get inside. By the time Keela made it into the belly of the beast (basement loading area) Martok had already single handedly offloaded a great deal of his trailer. Together they worked on setting up the arrangement and were joined by the KPV Krimson Fury command staff, Dronoss and Krikala. Finally everything was set up and covered for the battle the next day.

They would resume course on Saturday.

From ConCarolinas so edit: Once again the crews of the KPV Krimson Fury and IKS Oblivion joined the IKV Executioner to man the KAG table. It was a day like the others: some attention, some possible recruitment, fellowship with each other and neighbors. 2nd Lt. Waynar tai-Barr’ur warped out early with friends with the IKS Oblivion in tow.

Don’t forget the excitement with the fire alarm and the parking structure!

The next HeroesCon is June 14-16, 2024.
