You’ve heard the rumors, bought the toys, and have scheduled a vacation to Cincinnati Ohio of all places…

You’ve got some spending cash, a list of things to buy, and a mix tape of all Weird Al and Stan Bush music for the drive…

You’re going to BotCon and you think you’re SO special!

We agree.

That being the case, your not-so-humble friend Counterpunch and the rest of the far more well behaved Seibertron staff members will be hosting a meet and greet at 10pm on Friday the 25th.

We need to know who is interested, how many people you’ll be bringing along, and what you’re interested in doing that night. Initial options include going out into the City, drinks in one of the hotel lobbies, or gaming in one or several of the available hotel rooms (The room containing myself, Geekee-1, and Fender Bender being volunteered first of course…)

So, send me a PM. Get me information which will aide me in contacting you. The location for meet-up is yet to be determined, unless I know you’re interested we won’t bother looking. The one thing I need for sure is your email address for this. Phone numbers and messenger names are encouraged but not required.

Ok guys and gals, get ready to call in all those beers folks have offered to buy you over the past year, shower with something other than a bottle of Axe body spray, and forget anything mean I said to you over the past 5 years (I’m tired of introductions where I get punched in the face…).

This is BotCon. It’s Transformers Christmas, Chinese New Year, Hanukah, St. Patricks Day, and Senior Skip Day all rolled up into one.

I (we) look forward to meeting you all there!

Got it.

I forgot to say, I won't respond to each PM individually unless I need more from you. An email will go out a day or so before the event to all who PM me.

Should be lots of fun...

I was there last year but not a part of this board then, it definitely does add a dimension.

Maybe the fact that so many of us will be meeting up will inspire a few more members of this board to get off their butts and come to Botcon '09!

The opportunity to punch me in the face isn't enough inspiration? :P
