We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Hef. His impact and legacy are well-documented and need no repeating here. Suffice to say, he was extremely supportive and a friend of Glamourcon over the two decades we worked together and truly made us feel welcomed into the "Playboy Family." I am constantly asked how that relationship began but most folks still don't know the story.

Way back in 1993, Glamourcon produced its first show - a show based on pinup art and photography and having little to do with Playboy. I was standing on one side of the room watching the line of people pay $7 to attend while my then partner was doing the same on the other side of the room. In that line was Hef, flanked by his security and unnoticed by my partner and me. Hef patiently waited in line and it wasn't until he was at the payment table that my partner and I both noticed him - just as the gentleman taking admission, who did not recognize him, asked him for $7. Both my partner and I see him turn to his security as if to ask if they have the admission fee so we, of course, start sprinting toward the table. It seemed as if we were in that commercial showing a couple running toward each other through a field of flowers - our version was in VERY slow motion and each yelling "No!" at quarter speed. Fortunately, we were not tackled by security and made it to the table in time to escort Hef into the show.

A couple of hours later, Hef emerged from the show and asked to see us. He said, "I like your show but you know what it needs?" I said, "No, Mr. Hefner... what?" He said, "Playmates, of course!" Finally, up to speed, I had the good sense to say, "Great. Can you help us with that?" He said, "As a matter of fact, I can." He did and that was the beginning of a relationship that has lasted over two decades.

Thank you Hef. You fought the good fight. We will miss you every day. Rest in peace.

Bob and all of us at Glamourcon
