Yeah, that's right, Weekly Updates. Because even though the forums are kinda dead, this may have been the most active Monkey Pro week in the history of the site. Didn't this used to arbitrarily be on Tuesdays? Yes. Don't worry about it. Does this mean we'll start regular updates again? Yeah probably not. Being Monkeypro and all that.

 

So what shenanigans actually happened at Monkey Con? (Pictures taken by Kamau, used without permission or shame)

 

Board games. Lots and lots of board games.

Getting lost in the woods (And having several random dogs come out of no where)

Lounging and general lethargy (wouldn't be MonkeyPro without it)

Some of the longest tasting hot dogs ever.

And just general happiness and good will.

And while I would love to give member of the week to everybody who went, there were two people who put their heart and souls in to this event, and really made it happen. While I can only put one on the front page, I'll do both here.

 

Member of the Week #1

Monkeydog
While it's obvious that there would be no MonkeyPro, and therefore no MonkeyCon, without MonkeyDog, that would be a discredit to his awesomeness to not say that again. There would have been no MonkeyCon without MonkeyDog. Not least of all because he paid for the lodging, but he made sure there was plenty of food (perhaps a bit too much), helped give people rides to and fro, and made sure that we all had plenty to do to keep us from actually having to confront the reality of our situation: That a bunch of relative strangers agreed to spend a week together in a cabin in the mountains. Monkey, you are truly member of the year every year, this year most of all. Thank you so much for everything you did.

 

Member of the Week #2

Beesknees
Bee may not be a regular member of our fair forums, but there is no question that she was a major part in making sure MonkeyCon went well. Perhaps the most obvious way is that she kept her composure while trying to socialize with several of her boyfriends creepy internet friends. I also suspect that without a shoulder to lean on, MonkeyDog may have gone crazy trying to organize this whole thing.

 

I'm probably waaay underselling the effort these two put in to this event, because I honestly don't know much it might actually be. All I know is that I am eternally grateful to both of you.

 

That's all I've got for this week. No, I didn't change the game of the week because... Well, I didn't play a game and am not really planning on it. See you again in nine months or something.

The universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually, you'll be dead.

You guys are too nice! I'm sorry I didn't take the time to get to know all of you. Socializing has always been difficult for me so please don't be offended if I didn't talk to you. Anyways, I'm glad I finally met you all after hearing so much from Kenneth. I had a great time and can't wait to see you all again! :)

I'm gutted I couldn't make it. I had to fight the forces of Brexit.

 

Try again next year?

We were considering doing it again in 5 years. Then that changed to 2 years. Nothing more specific than that has been discussed just yet.

No seriously, Monkeydog will set up a GoFundMe, and as soon as it reaches the cost of the trip, we'll plan the next one. As President of MonkeyPro (By default since I was the only person to announce candidacy and nobody voted in 2012) I declare it to be MonkeyLaw!

You should join us in the Slack chat. That's where all the action is happening. Monkeydog should have sent you an invite. If you don't see one, just poke him, and I bet he can resend it.

Wish I had been able to attend, but I couldn't take more time off of work, and my family, unfortunately, comes before internet family.

 

Maybe next time, I'll be more fortunate.

With scars that show that we care a lot
In the sky we dreamt like a juggernaut
Of the things we'd do and what we saught
