    Just received info about Cybcon 2008 scheduled for Saturday, August 23rd, located here: http://www.ggaub.com/tf/cybcon2k8.html. That "2007" on the site is no doubt a typo.


    It's on my birthday. Excellent.

    What 2007? ;-)
    Dang you guys work fast. I was going to send a PR to various web sites later on, but it looks like TFW is already taken care of. :) 
    Thanks!

    Went last year with miasboytoy and had a great time, got to meet fellow TFW peeps and got some great deals on TF's. Hoping to go this year too.

    I've gone the last 2 years and it's been great both times. It only takes 2 hours to get there from Portland, so if any Portlanders are reading this, don't let the drive stop you.

    I'm actually thinking about getting a table to display my ever growing Alt custom collection and maybe selling a few. Oh and I'll be looking for more kitbash fodder

    I need to go this year. It's probably only a 5-10 min. drive from me. I would've went last year but totally forgot about it.:redface2:

    Excellent

    This just sounds AWESOME. I'm so jazzed to have a local con to go to. I'm in the Tri-Cities now so this is only a 2 to 3 hour drive. Beyond cool. Any other fans close by and planning on going? PM me!

    I'll be there; third year in a row. If you need anything Greg, I'd be happy to help. I'm only about 30-45 min. from the motel.

    I'm going. Though I didn't see any mention of an exclusive this year, not that we need one.

    Orion P, you are not alone in your confusion between CybCon, which started as a mailing list in the 90's, with it's first convention in 2000, with CybERcon Expo, which is on the east coast and started sometime later, 2001, I think.

    Note the important difference. "CybCon" which is short for The Cybertronian Conference, and Cybercon Expo, which is just that. They are different, run by different people, and in different areas. I wish the names were not so similar, but I doubt very much Cybercon Expo will change their name.

    Hopefully, this can help a few people realize the difference and remember it.

    I guess that depends on how much you enjoy hanging out with other fans, buying and trading TFs, playing games, and having fun. I think it's totally worth it and it won't bankrupt you to attend like other conventions.
