A magic day.
The guy in the corner with the talking car was great to talk to. Very hospitable.
Michael, Catherine and Rebecca had so much time for everyone and it was a joy to meet them.
I asked Michael a question from this forum. Look for the thread about the dash and the guy with a New Replica.

Well done to all the organisers. It was very special.

A few of my pics attached (tho I have about 140mb worth of pics!!!).

Once again, another excellent event, made better by the personal appearances of the two very special
guests, Catherine and Rebecca, who made sure they spent time with as many of the fans and visitors
as possible, and even insisted on signing autographs on all the KITT replicas They said they'd both be
back here for next years event, and said they'd even try to get the Hoff to make a real appearance
at the actual event itself, rather than just on the special tribute presentation DVD.

All in all, it was a great experience, and a very refreshing change to meet a couple of celebrities who
definitely aren't self centred and shallow, unlike other supposedly famous persons we have in the UK
(such as Big Brother contestants, and Katie Price) that don't deserve to be classed as celebs at all.

Once again, the original KR series production designer Michael Scheffe was stunned to see so many
replica KITT cars based on the designs he made 28 years ago. I asked him, if back then he'd have
been told he'd be able to attend an event like this with all these replica KITTs as far forward as
the 21st Century, he said no before I'd even finished asking the question! I guess he knew
where the question was going, and I guess I already knew what the answer might be!

It was another brilliant event that seems to get bigger every year, especially with the VIP guests
that make such a big (and tiring for them) effort to get here from thousands of miles away.

Well, I already gave my opinion in Nick's thread but I guess I could echo here that it was definetely the best KR convention I have been to and easily beat out KRF II!

I would like to know if all those props on show inside the hotel were originals or replicas? And also the KITT inside the tent that was parked in the "inside" of the FLAG truck?

The celebs were very courteous, Catherine Hickland made me freeze with her kisses on my cheek inside the restaurant when she, Rebecca Holden and Nick Nugent came in to probably grab something to eat themselves and we all had a 5 minute chat about how well the day had gone. :oops: :D

Rebecca, Catherine and Nick could easily have just treated us as "their job" and ignored us when they were going about their private business like so many other celebs would have but they showed they are genuine, down to earth people who make the time for their fans because they want to.

KRFII was a great event but Knightcon easily topped it with it's cosiness and the feeling of it being much more "exclusive" for it's fans not to mention there were many more surprises for us, too!

KRF definetely has the ability to equal Knightcon and I am confident in it's ability to do just that in the future.

Bring on Vegas!

That's exactly what Catherine told me too, about the intimacy of it.

She was such a delightly lady. And loved her hugs.
