The hotel is across the street and is the Hyatt Regency.

It's closer than Los Angeles would be :) ... heck that's not that far of a drive. It's only 8 hours away, which isn't that bad at all.

I'm not sure if that was meant for me, but I doubt my parents would be up for driving me. Plus, I got school, and if you miss a day of High Scool, let alone 3, you're doomed. Especially since my school would count it unexcused. :P

At least that's what I'm hoping. :D

Also, on a related note, Ryan thought I was crazy when I went to Lexington 2 years ago by way of Cincinnati. Now I at least know the way! :lol:

Yes.

Let me reiterate.

Yes.

One more time.

YES!

TheMuffin and Botcon all in one place!

Fender. If I am moved out before then, you guys can stay at my place. Though I am about 3 hours out from Botcon. And a forewarning. I'm not bunking with you guys. I get the feeling I'd go deaf from all of the snoring.

Yup. All I know though is I'm bringing Rock Band down with me. Crank the music and go apeshit out in the hallway of the hotel.

So, as a noob, should one plan on attending all of the days or just the weekend? I'll be in Michigan the week prior to Botcon and Cinci is on the way home to Florida.
Did someone say rock band? Reminds me of my Gencon days.

Not a very good chance for me to come...for several reasons: 1) distance to travel (2,022 mi (3,254 km)); 2) expenses to get there and most important I have to work--my full-time student teaching.

That's only like an 8 hour drive. Maybe 10 at most if you stop a lot. I can get from Toledo Ohio to West Virginia in 4 hours non stop. Hell dude just take a boat across the lake into Sandusky harbor. Then just hit 75 south.

Yea, but I haven't had my passport updated for quite a while. Along with me being a little short on cash, so it seems I'm going to have to wave as this one goes by. At least theres still Transformercon to look forward to about two months after Botcon.

Oh. Oh hell. I live all of 140 miles from there. Haven't been to a BotCon since the last one in Fort Wayne. Don't know if I'll have the money. But I wants to be there...

Gotta try and talk my best friend into going again...it'd be fun for old times' sake...

Ohio, can I get a "Hells yeah!" for Botcon coming back? :)

I wish it was in Florida (as an official apology from Hasbro for still not restocking stores) but from the looks of the logo it appears to be Animated based. So no thanks anyway.
