PostSubject: Anytrades Convention Meet-Up   Sat 21 Feb 2009, 12:39 am

This is an idea I have been kicking around for a bit. I want to see people's thoughts on it. Sometime this summer (mid to late) I was thinking we could have an AnyTrades, in real life, meet up at a gaming/anime convention.

Most conventions are a couple days long and I'm looking for one in central US. I realize that since most of the users here are either too young to make a decision to travel to something like this or people live too far away and with money constraints can't make it. We want to get as many people as possible, so if you can make it, let me know.

I'll try and arrange a meeting point and all the basic logistics as best I can. Basically we will most likely meet outside the convention before hand and just hang out for the day(s) and all that jazz.

I'm still trying to figure out the specific convention that will be the meeting point. Currently I'm think of these:

Electronic Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. - June 2-4, 2009
http://www.e3expo.com/
-or-
GenCon in Indianapolis, Indiana. - August 13-16, 2009
http://www.gencon.com/2009/indy/default.aspx

Where we go depends largely on who is willing/able to go. E3 is mainly for the leading edge of gaming and is going to be really crazy. GenCon is a large but more broad range of gaming and sci-fi/fantasy stuff. Both will be really fun for anyone able to go.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: You will have to register for the convention and pay for the tickets/gas out to the convention. This isn't free. Please keep this in mind while deciding if you want to go. You will probably also want money to spend at the convention. You are responsible for your own money situation and your own actions.

I'm going to keep looking for other conventions that may fit better to pokemon gaming specificly but we'll see what turns up. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Post here if you want to go or have suggestions.

They're having a Pokemon Game Tournament in St.Louis! (Thats where one of the battles in the tournament are going to be) I think it would be best if we meet there! (Just a thought.....)

Yanks, there are conventions in New York. Search for Otacon on google. It is apparently a pretty cool convention.

As for what I was thinking for this meet up it is a bit too far toward the east coast for the west coast members and myself.

St. Louis sounds like a decent idea though. If someone could post a link to the convention's site I'd like to check it out.

This has a bit more info on the St. Louis Pokemon TCG convention which looks like the best bet.
http://www.mopokemon.com/

I also found a few other conventions:

OSFest in Omaha, Nebraska; July 17-19, 2009
http://www.osfes.org/
Basicly a general anime and gaming convention. Looks neat but might not have much in terms of pokemon.

*Anime Festival Wichita in Wichita, Kansas; July 10-12, 2009*
http://afwcon.org/
Mainly an anime festival but they have a specific Pokemon battling tournament. I think this would be an awesome con to meet at.


If you are planning on going to the meet up, check out their sites and tell me what you think here.

I would totally want to go.

Too bad I'm poor and probably wouldn't be allowed. It sounds like a fun idea, though.
