hey gang any word or rumors or fact of where botcon 06 will be held?
please be Chicago ... please be Chicago ... please be Chicago ... please be Chicago ...
Does every Botcon thread have to have somebody wishing for it to be in their backyard?
Assuming that BotCon '06 is in the late September range.That leaves us with 9 months
And last year announcements started IIRC either in January or Feburary
Personally I'm starting to save my $$$ now
They should have it were it was never held before, PHILLY!!!! Yeah I can dream. But I wouldn't mind Baltimore or New York.
I would love to have it in KC, MO, but I don't think they will have it here. It's just way too ghetto for their tastes.
Really, I think it might be in Texas again. Didn't they hold the Joe convention down there for a few years while they were getting it off the ground? More then likely they might do the same with Botcon. I mean their office IS located in Dallas. It just makes sense for them, finacially to do it in Texas again.
west coast is where it should be held
give me a chance to actually go
[plus its hardly everheld on the west coast. theres plenty of perfect places too]
Everyone wants it in their backyard.
I wouldn't mind having it again in Chicago. Great place. Day drive for me. Last year Joe Con was held here in Minnesota so . . .well I'm hoping for BotCon here of course!!!
As long as I can drive there in a day I'll be happy. Can't wait for them to announce it of course.
I doubt I'll be at Botcon this year; I'll be too busy getting married.
I'd love to see it here in or near my hometown of Tucson, AZ or Phoenix, AZ.
I'll definitely miss ya, if ya don't go but I know you'll be having much more fun.
It should be in San Francisco...
Actually, a quick check at http://www.transformersclub.com/ indicates that the big announcement regarding location for Botcon '05 didn't happen until June. This site indicates June 10th (the day after the club site indicates) and suggests that this is the first the fandom heard of either the date of the convention or it's location.
We'd barely heard that FP got the license in January....
Remember though G.B. I FIRMLY recall reading a general statement on the site.That BotCon would be in the fall of '05 back last January
Maybe official announcements didn't begin till June.But unofficially most Tfans who read the stie would know that the Con would be in fall
Well, at the risk of being just another person wanting it in their backyard... it's always been a surprise to me that it has never been held in Orlando. You've got tons of hotels and convention space, beaches within a 45 minute drive in either direction, plus the Disney, Sea World, and Universal parks. Space Coast attractions, too. Seems like a prime location for a convention plus plenty of additional activities if people want to make a vacation out of it.
It would be nice if they announced it within the next week, as that's my deadline for putting in for my 2, week-long vacations this year.
While it was "late" when we got confirmation last year, everything happened in a condensed timeframe. Supposedly they'll be announcing it "soon". MC/FP were about to sign contracts and announce the location/dates for the 2006 Joe con shortly before Hurricane Katrina, but those plans got changed since New Orleans was the place.
EDIT: Evidently MC confirmed in the new Joe newsletter that their con will be in New Orleans, weekend of June 29th. So now I'd guess a Botcon announcement should be in the next TF magazine newsletter due in early February.
please be 1,000 miles from my house with no possible way for me to get there without taking major vacation time ... please be 1,000 miles from my house with no possible way for me to get there without taking major vacation time ... please be 1,000 miles from my house with no possible way for me to get there without taking major vacation time ...
