    Me and a ragtag band of TFans are putting together a convention in Savannah, GA next summer. We've booked the rooms and are currently finalizing the details and looking into guest appearances for some discussion panels. We've got a couple people interested and at least one who has all but committed. We don't want to give up too many details until this fall but it's going to be awesome!

    We're trying to gauge interest so feel free to PM me if you're interested or have any ideas and make sure to post in the talkback and let us know what you think!!

    We'll definitely keep you guys posted and will hopefully have an official site for the convention up soon.

    Is this in any way related to the fellow who did a Dark of the Moon event down there on release night?

    this isn't connected to SCAD at all. I held an event for the Dark Of The Moon movie premiere last month and I made the decision to create a yearly convention.

    This might be a good weekend trip for the family next summer. The wife and daughters can head to the beach or enjoy the town while I'm getting my plastic crack fix. :D 

    Hope to be there!

    We need to have a SAVCON Megathread to include all the other announcements in this forum.

    Since the official site hasn't been linked in this thread yet:

    Welcome To Savcon

    I've also partnered with slugslinger711 for marketing/promotions via one of the links in my sig line.

    My brother, Jon3pnt0, is also doing a fan panel on making funny TF videos, and he has told me he will premiere a TF video spoof exclusively at Savcon.

    I see how it is. Banished to the beach. No plastic crack for the GF :( 

    Seriously, I hope I can get off work for this. I've always wanted to see Savanah, beaches included.
