    I'd prefer somewhere in the middle-northern part of the country. It gets way too hot down here in the lower states lol

    I'm on vacation in Hilton Head, South Carolina right now, the highs are generally in the mid-eighties. Also went to SavCon yesterday, wasn't too hot...so southern conventions would be ok, as long as they're somewhere near the coast...or places like Atlanta, which aren't too unbearable.

    personally, I think Botcon needs a more centralized location, it's almost always near a coast or border. Those are not centralized locations at all.

    Then those of us with low budgets or cheapo parents can't go because it's out of the comfort zone. I live in GA, & couldn't even go this year, yet it was in Texas...that's close enough, is it not?

    I would say Chicago!! I might actually go to it if I can find someone to go with me and drive in there. I only like like 90 miles away from there so I don't have to find a room. Actually I would love it to be in Rockford, IL that way I won't care if i have a ride or not I know my town pretty good. Just might need to get a few little quick directions from my dad, if it is going to be in the metro center.

    Center of the nation and certainly has the convention space to host. Plus, its my home town, so just a little biased!!

    Some fact about why botcon was not held in Chicago last year was its too much to have the con there. Was told by 3 different fp staff members that no hotel near the convention center was willing to give the them a good rate, the lowest rate was 189.00 a night and taxes and fees would of had the total bill per night at 225. Then even time fp wanted to add something to the contract it was much higher then the paid for the same items at other centers that already held either joecon or botcon. Most center add a fee to have the carpet put down and add a fee to have the carpet roll back up. Unless you have worked for a convention center most people do not know how much it cost to rent one and what all has to be worked out

    I honestly don't care where it's at, as I believe the decision and accommodations will be all good with the right planning. Everyone brings up good and justified reasons, so I'll take their word for it. But have they decided on a date yet? I'm hoping that it's during the summer or at least in June like in previous years. Not digging the April/May months...and I can't speak for everyone on it naturally, but April/May based on my schedule makes it impossible for me to attend regardless of location.

    Well, here's my thoughts on the dates, for what they're worth... with the subscription service figures not starting shipping until January, that means the last one will ship in June. I think it would be prudent of FunPub to hold off on Botcon until after that point. Maybe even wait until August to be sure everyone got their figure and all needed replacements are taken care of.

    If they actually do this, then that means as of today, Botcon 2013 is still eleven months away. And if that's true, then I'm not sure we'll get an announcement at the end of December like we did last year.

    And while I'm here, I want to suggest Hershey, PA as the site. There's a city I want to visit. C'mon, FunPub... chocolate factory tours? Edible Transformers? Mmm... chocolate... :p
