First, thank you to everyone at NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles, who generously provided us with donations, assisted with planning or very generously shared their time off to be with us. Too many to list here, however, you all went above and beyond to ensure that the fans of NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles had a great weekend.

Some special thanks to: Donald P. Bellisario for creating the wonderful show we enjoy so much. Executive Producer Chas. Floyd Johnson thank you so much for the amazing program you prepared for us! Charles always goes above and beyond for the fans and this year was exceptional! Many thanks to Erica McIntosh who helped coordinate the NCIS involvement and for stepping in on Saturday when Charles could not attend. Thanks also to Shane Brennan for giving all NCIS fans a new outlet to show our appreciation for all things NCIS by creating NCIS: Los Angeles. To Erin Broadhurst, who coordinated the NCIS: Los Angeles involvement, thank you.

To The Beverly Garland Holiday Inn Universal Studios Management and Staff, thank you for another great year!

The Thursday meet and greet/costume party was memorable with Gary Khammar and his crew filming for the Season 8 NCIS DVD Extras. A surprise visit from Pancho Demmings was enjoyed by all.

To our awesome Honored Guests who visited with us on Friday and took part in our seminars, thank you! Craig Harvey, Chief Coroner Investigator and Chief of Operations Los Angles Coroners Office, technical advisor to NCIS; Special Agent Mike Devine and Regina Borjas from the real NCIS; Doug Reilly and Melissa Adlof, who shared the amazing NCIS props.

Saturday afternoon was an amazing experience for all of us! The program created by Chas. Floyd Johnson was executed to perfection in his absence led by Erica McIntosh and Jamie Killion. Jason Kennedy and NCIS Theatre was a hit with fans taking part in a mock audition. The NCIS: Los Angeles panel of Peter Cambor and Daniela Ruah was moderated by Dave Kalstein. Erin Broadhurst, assistant to Shane Brennan was also in attendance. Peter and Daniela answered questions from the fans and we received a sneak peak of a new NCIS: Los Angeles episode, "Borderline". An advance viewing of the NCIS episode "Worst Nightmare" was enjoyed by all. The NCIS panel of Rocky Carroll, Joe Spano, Brian Dietzen and Jesse Stern was led by Reed Steiner. Paul Perrette called in and we had a 3 o'clock dance break. We enjoyed the coming attractions and gag reel. Mike Karnell and Trish Hadley from Post did a great job with the video during the program. Also joining us from NCIS were Harriet Margulies, Susan Hollander, Meredith Fordney, Joseph Lim and Sara Chaiken. All the fans were presented with wonderful gift bags at the end of the program. We thank everyone for taking time out of their busy schedules to join us.

Thank you to Muse Watson, Rudolf Martin, Adam J. Craig and Ronald Auguste who made Saturday evening memorable signing autographs and taking photos with fans. The fans enjoyed this special opportunity so much!

Special thanks to everyone at NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles and the wonderful fans for donations to the Live Auction. Many thanks to GameHouse for donating copies of the NCIS Mobile Game to all the fans that registered for the NCIS Fan Fest and for the iPod Touch donation for the Live Auction.

Many thanks to our Honored Guests, the representatives of our charities; The Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, Mike Hire and Cissie Sexton, and Operation Gratitude, Charlie Othold, Bill Van Trump, Roberta Van Trump, Robert Bender, who joined us over the weekend. We enjoyed so much partnering with you to support your wonderful causes. Thanks also to NMCRS for the donation ID badge lanyards, tablets and zipper pouches in the Welcome Bags.

Thanks to those businesses who donated time, services and goods to ensure quality to our event: Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, YR Group, GameHouse and CBS Watch Magazine.

We can't thank enough the fan groups who donated time and energy putting together the wonderful fan booths set up during the NCIS Fan Fest 2010 at their own expense. You all did an amazing job!

Finally, to the wonderful fans of NCIS, that traveled from all parts of the world to join us over the weekend, thank you. We missed those of you that were unable to attend due to the economy and the illness. Without all of you the NCIS Fan Fest would not exist. Thank you for opening your hearts and donating $10.134.00 to our two very deserving charities.

NCIS Fan Fest 2010 is now a wonderful memory. We appreciate all that everyone did to make NCIS Fan Fest 2010 a wonderful weekend, what an awesome team effort that benefited two wonderful charities.

We have already received questions regarding a NCIS Fan Fest in 2011. We are in the process of discussing going forward and will make an announcement when we have reached a decision. Please be patient during this time.

Again, thanks so much to everyone involved.

We are very excited to announce that fans in attendance at the Costume Party Thursday evening at NCIS Fan Fest 2010 will have an amazing opportunity!

Fans will be able to ask a video question of one of the NCIS Cast Members, Writers or Producers that may appear on next years NCIS Season 8 DVD Extras!

To take part, fans will be required to sign a CBS Television Talent Consent form prior to having their question recorded on video. The video questions selected to be included on the DVD Extras will have their question viewed and answered by the NCIS Cast Member, Writer or Producer on the NCIS Season 8 DVD Extras.

We ask that you think about your question for a Cast Member, Writer or Producer regarding the show. You could be seen by millions of fans asking this question. We know you all will enjoy this amazing opportunity! What better way can there be to ask Gibbs a question, than when dressed up to look just like him? Or, Can you imagine asking about Abby's amazing wardrobe while wearing your vision of it?

The NCIS Fan Fest 2010 Planning Committee would like to take a moment to wish all in the US a wonderful holiday as we take a day to remember those who have sacrificed for our nation. We honor the lives and duty of those who have stood on freedom's front lines in order to keep our nation and our world a safe and free place.

One way you can join us in honoring those who are currently serving is by joining us in this year's Operation Support Team.

One of our chosen charities, Operation Gratitude, supports troops over seas by sending them care packages. They do this by receiving donations of items that the troops can't readily get where they are deployed.

At NCIS Fan Fest 2010, Operation Gratitude will be on hand to accept your donations for their care packages.

Start gathering your items to bring with you in September to NCIS Fan Fest 2010. There is a list of items needed by Operation Gratitude at our website. Follow the 2010 Info links to the "Operation Support Team" link for this list as well as other ideas for how you can take part in this.

If you have any questions regarding Operation Support Team, please email us at charities@NCISFanFest.com

Don't forget, as well, to send in your registration for NCIS Fan Fest 2010. There is only one month left at the current registration level. You'll want to send in your registration soon to take advantage of the savings at this level.

Also, if you haven't done so, be sure to book your room at the Beverly Garland soon. Rooms in our block are filling up quickly. Especially those rooms with more than one bed. If you're planning on sharing your room, you really need to book now to ensure you get the beds you need. While you book now, your credit card will not be charged until you arrive in September.

Please visit our website for more NCIS Fan Fest 2010 information www.NCISFanFest.com If you have any questions regarding NCIS Fan Fest registrations or hotel reservations, email us at registrations@NCISFanFest.com

For those going to NCIS Fan Fest 2010, as always, we encourage you to make it a true vacation for yourself. The Beverly Garland Holiday Inn will honor the NCIS Fan Fest 2010 special guest room rates 3 days prior to the beginning of our event til 3 days after the end of our event.

That being said, we are feeling the waters for any interest there may be for a special get together before NCIS Fan Fest 2010 begins. We are going to judge the interest in this by how many fans will arrive at The Beverly Garland by Tuesday, September 21. If we see we have a large enough group scheduled to check in early, by the end of Early Bird, we will look into the possibility or arranging for all of us to rewatch the this season's ending episodes for NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles together. Should the new season begin on September 21, we could also watch the Season Premiere episode for both shows.
If you are going to come in early for NCIS Fan Fest 2010 to be a SoCal tourist and would be interested in watching the this Season's ending episodes and the Season Premieres (if they air on September 21) of both shows with the other fans, please let us know. You may let us know by making your hotel reservation and by emailing us at registrations@NCISFanFest.com so we can gauge whether to pursue this or not.


Thank you,
NCIS Fan Fest 2010 Planning Committee
