I have had a lot of people asking about CombatCon. Honestly, there were quite a few things that happened that were awful. I have affectionately named it the trip from hell. However, I'm not going to tell you about all the bad stuff. I'll hit the highlights and the cool stuff that happened.
I drove out there all by myself and I'm actually really proud of myself for making it through Vegas. When I got to the Plams it was a nice little casino so it was easy to navigate. My room was cute and the view was lovely.
Ron and Tom let me hang out with them. I also met so many new friends. One man who was the vendor right across from me named Garth, made it a lot more fun to be a t the booth. He makes amazing things at SGT Blades.
I literally had the best view in the house from my booth!!
One of the coolest things that happened to me was when Anthony and Mary DeLongis did a whip demonstration for the public. Anthony swiped a whip off my table to do part of it and gave me the best commercial ever. I wish that I had it on video... but I had no idea that he was going to do that so I was unprepared. ((This picture is almost as good!))
This was the class picture for the Latigo y Daga class and almost all the whips in the picture were made by me!
I got to dress up in a pretty costume for a party and dance the night away.
Bottom line- Yes, I will go back next year. I will change quite a few things that I do next time. I kind of expected a learning curve though. Next year should be a lot more fun a less stressful.

Whips are a lot of fun but they are not toys. Make sure to always wear safety gear and practice well away from other people and animals. Never hit anyone with your whip.
