    Cool, this is right up the road for me. Never been to a TF convention before. Will have to check it out.

    Can't wait! That's in a pretty cool area called Concord Mills. It's right near the NASCAR race track and a huge outlet mall. Tons of restaurants. And about 10-15 minutes from Uptown Charlotte.

    I went to Charticon, and I think it was actually a little better than TFCon USA. So I have high hopes that between the two teams, that this will be a helluva a con. Gonna try my best to drive all the way out there. :D

    Nice! It sounds like Charticon lives on in spirit if not in name!

    Also cool that it's moving around. Hopefully it continues to do so.

    Even though I would love to attend TFcon this year but this is a severe pass for me. I did attend both TFcon USA and Charticon but it is extremely difficult for me to fly across the country for a long weekend this year.

    I'd love to go, considering I hit the first Charticon and TFCon Chicago, but there's no way I'd be able to get more time off from work, having already used up my vacation for Botcon. Still, this is great news. And hey, if they're gonna move the show every year... Kentucky 2016? Just sayin.' :p

    Had a blast at TFcon Chicago but with Botcon being closer and the costs of hotels and having to request more time off of work I'm going to have to miss this one.

    Still I'm glad to hear they're continuing to have a US TFcon, the first one was so well organized I was really hoping they'd have another one.

    hope I can find a friend who that is going to this one.... ;) 

    Glad the location doesn't change here in Canada, always in Mississauga (Toronto), which is like 15 - 20 min drive ;)  Wish I could attend both though, it seems last year's TFCon Chicago was a blast for those who attended...(more exclusives than here in Toronto)
