MOONEYES Express

31st HCS 2023


Show 開催前は12/03(日)(Show当日)が早く過ぎないかと思っているのですが、終わってしまえばあっという間の出来事でもうすでに1週間が経ってしまいました。
色々思い返すと反省点ばかりで来年の課題も山積みです。Show 開場前の長蛇の列、Show 限定商品購入の長蛇の列等、反省点だらけです。昨年の反省を今年で多少改善し、将棋倒しになるのではないかと思える程殺気だった入場は今年は無く、比較的Calmになっていましたが限定商品販売であれ程のラインになる事は想像していませんでした。
皆さまにはご迷惑をお掛けし申し訳ありませんでした。
主に海外からの方々が出店しているInt’l Villageの一部はその列がつづら折りなりテーブルも見えない状況なってしまったので、急遽、展示中だった1961 Buick Le Sabreを会場外へ移動し, 長蛇の列をかき分けそれらテーブルを移動し新たなSpotを設けたり、卓上の論理はまったく通用しないので湧き上がった問題にその場で解決して行くのがイベント運営だと思っています。
今ではShow全体を把握し組み立てているのは “Pan” Sumi, レイアウトではエントリーの方々の希望を出来るだけ把握し 誰もが笑顔になれるように努力してくれています。
100%希望通りにならない場合もありますが ”出来る限り” と言う思いは変わっていません。
そんな彼がShow前に風邪で倒れ一時は ”どうするHCS” 状態になってしまいました。
が 何とか持ち直してくれたので無事に開催できたのでした。

それと印象的だったのはエントリーの方々が大変協力的だった事です。
中には声を荒げる方々もいます(毎回います)が年々少なくなったきている感じがします。
声を荒げても, そうで無くてもリクエストに対しては出来る事はやりますし、こちらの手落ちでも何とかするのが運営なので 出来る事なら声は荒げず、優しくお尋ね頂けますと心安らかに次の一手を打つ事が出来ます。
それが難しい場合、ではニコニコしなが声を荒げるってのはどうでしょうか。
何年も長い間一緒にShowを組み立てて来ているのですからある意味心も通じてると思いですので、出来る事ならCalmでお願いします。結果は変わりません。

Before the show, we thought that 12/03(Sun)(Day of the show) would go quickly, but once it's over, it will be over in a flash and a week has already passed.Looking over the event, there are still many improvements and issues for the next year.
Many improvements need such as the long line before the gate opens, the long line for the Show Limited Item, and more.From last year's improvement, we thought that we improved and we did not have a rushed admission for this year and had a Calm admission. We never anticipated that the line to purchase the limited item would become that long.
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this may caused. 
Especially at the Int'l Village where Oversea guest had their booth, some of the lines coiled so much that the table became barely visible.We moved the 1961 Buick Le Sabre on display hurriedly outside the venue, moved the table cutting through a long line, and created a new Spot. I think that desk work logic does not work for always, and I believe that event management is to solve the problems that arise on the spot.
Now, "Pan" Sumi organizes the whole of the show and understands it, and he is working hard to make everyone smile hearing the request for layout for the participants.It doesn't always get 100% to the request, but our will is always to do "as much as we can".However, he came down with a cold before the show, and we were at "What are we going to do for HCS". But he recovered and was able to hold the event safely.

Moreover, it was impressive that the participants were cooperative.Some people raise their voices (there are some every time), but we feel that it is becoming less each year.
If they raise their voice or not, we will do as much as we can to the request, and if it's our fault, we will do something about it because we are doing the management.
If possible, please do not raise your voice and ask nicely, so that we can take the next step in peace.
If that is difficult, how about raising your voice with a smile on your face?
We have been working together for many years, so in a sense, I believe our hearts resonate with each other; therefore, I kindly ask you to remain calm. The result would not change.


何と言ってもKode Talkersの特別出演もあり、今回は例年にない盛り上がりになったHCS 2023, 正直無事終わって良かった、って思っています。
至らぬ点、多々ありましたが皆さまの協力、理解, 我慢の元、無事開催できました。
ありがとうございました。

開場に居る、全員がHapppyな時間を過ごせる様に2024も組み立てて行きます。

No matter what you say, we had a special performance by Kode Talkers (BAND) and this year's HCS2023 was more exciting than ever, and honestly, we are relieved that it is over safely.
There were some points to improve, but with everyone's cooperation, understanding, and patience, we were able to successfully hold the event.Thank you very much.

We will continue to organize 2024 so that everyone who is at the event can have a Happy time.
