Hmm....Southeast huh? It could work....with some creative accounting and resourcefulness, I could work that out....



......I will, however, wait for further details, since this is not really set-in-stone yet.

COme on bro...you should have seen this coming. The East is where EVERYTHING important is (allegedly)...just watch ESPN. Apparently there are no other NFL teams besides the Patriots (oh, and the Cowboys), MLB folded all teams except the Yankees and Red Sox, and the Celtics have already won the 2009 NBA title.

P.S. Can someone PLEASE shoot Tony Kornhiser? He needs to just go away somewhere...

Does Memphis actually count as Southeast? I'd lean towards Raleigh, NC or Atlanta, GA. Atlanta would be nice...been wanting to see the new aquarium down there...supposed to be even bigger than Shedd in Chicago.

The southeast huh...

Well I'm in the northeast, so a Botcon trip may be possible for me again. All I need to know is dates it's being held and the state it's gonna be located in. Then I can start my planning.

*sigh* I should have guessed, always the east. Maybe someday we west coast fans will get a break. I'd like to go to at least one botcon but 2,000+ miles of travel really isn't an option. :-(

That and a Northwest con would rock, people would get a chance to see the place many of the stories take place. :wink:

Oh Lord, a summer convention in the southeast. Why not have it in a place where the weather is actually *tolerable* at that time of year for those of us not insane enough to live there?

I also hope it's in Florida. That really increases the chances I'll be able to attend. Everything fun like that is usually in the northeast or far west. Dragoncon is about the only thing we get over here, and I haven't even been able to go to that.

And the weather is just fine here.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that...


...They should have it in Canada. We have very mild summers. It's bad enough being a room fill with sweaty Transformer fans, don't put them out in the hot Florida summer sun too. There's not enough deoderant in the world.

Florida summers are the best time of year. Some of you up north have no idea how awesome 100 degree weather is.

Also, I'm speculating either Orlando or Atlanta.

Hey folks, just wait till they give us a place and I'll get to organizing places to stay, events, and accomodations. (Time to call in some favors too...) Take heart those that are in a galaxy far, far away. We can probably help you out.

Heck, I'm in the Athens area too. We've probably passed by one another in the toy eisle at Walmart, Target, or TRU. I'm not holding my breath that it'll be at the Classic Center.

Atlanta would be a great place for it (especially for me, since I have family there!)

If it's in Atlanta, we're all meeting up at the Clermont Lounge!

Pete on the club boards pretty much shot this down:

Oh, and Seibertron needs a new tipster. Seriously.


Of course, it could just be "misinformation", but with as delayed as this has been, that'd just serve to piss people off more, so hopefully they wouldn't do that.

I was just about to post that...

That bit of info speaks volumes in of itself.

::Frustration level: HIGH::
::Amusement level: NON EXISTANT::

I don't want to bad mouth the Club. I'm not going to either.

But you know what?

I should.

Yeah, it sucks that there was some confusion between me and the source, but it was totally worth it. :grin:

With Pete's comment, I'm of the understanding that Botcon is NOT in the Southeast then. 8)

Maybe I should post more stories with Botcon rumors that get shot down so we can deduce the actual location. It'd probably be quicker than waiting for the club to announce it....:roll:

QFT

Edit (so post has substance):

I'd still roadtrip anywhere in the Southeast to see Stan Bush play live. I don't need Botcon as an excuse to do that.

And it would give me a chance to show off my collection.

With the seeming debunkment of this rumor, I suppose I'll stop celebrating. Still, if it does wind up down here, we should take off the day after the Con and hit up New Orleans for a Post-BotCon Party.

Postby Wheeljack35 » Sat Dec 06, 2008 2:09 pm

Well if it does show especially in Orlando there are two places it could be

The is a huge convention center where they had the American Idol tryout a few years abck and Megacon is every feb

Or there is one right outside the Magic Kingdom.You can see the Castle and Space Mountain from the convention area.I heard there was a Joecon there a few years ago

But as usual they will possibly go to the middle of the country
