It's good to see them expand into the US. I suspect with many people frustrated at Botcon, that this will be a very popular convention.

+ Driving distance
- A location I never want to go near
- worst possible time of year

2014 is setting up to be the most frustrating year of my entire life...

You suspect correctly. Unless the BotCon set is an absolute knockout, I'm passing on it this year. I do want to go to a convention, and I heard good things about TFCon. I also have never been to Chicago and it's half the distance that Pasadena is. So, given further information, I think I may just go to this convention instead of BotCon.

I'm still waiting for one to come somewhere at least close to the East coast.

Well this is awesome. That's 10 minutes from my house. I might look into being a dealer at the show as well. Can't wait to see everyone!

For you history buffs out there ... this is where BotCon 1996 was held (my first BotCon) and right next door to where OTFCC 2003 and 2004 were held.

Charticon in Charlotte, NC is on the East Coast and a damn fun convention to go to. I went this year. :)

If that's not close enough, you also have NJCC, NYCC, and Retrocon.

Meh, still hoping to go to BotCon, but if it doesn't work out, I'll keep it in mind.

Hey Seibs... can I stay at your house if I end up going? ;;)
