    TFCon Charlotte transportation: HELP!

    Is anybody going to TFCon Charlotte from anywhere in Virginia? I'm in the Newport News area, and the ride I had lined up has mysteriously stopped responding to my messages (it looks as if he's not on Facebook anymore, or he blocked me). I'm in dire need of transportation now. Please PM me ASAP!

    I am looking for MMC Azalea, I'm going to TFCon this weekend and it's going to be the one thing I'm looking for the most. If anyone else is going to TFCon and selling/trading an Azalea I am very eager to hear from you.

    Shoot me PMs!

    Does anyone know if any of the major online dealers like BBTS have confirmed to be in attendance?

    I'm also wanting to know how to find out what retailers are going to be there and how to contact them about certain items.

    Most likely TFSource will be there since they were in the dealer room last year in Chicago.

    Is it normal to contact online retailers and ask about/request certain items for the convention?

    I have never heard of wanting to contact retailers and request certain items for the convention. Normally, it is first-come-first-serve but retailers usually have a good supply of items that are current and maybe a few years old.

    Might want to update Alex Milne won't be attending either, health issue is forcing him back home and he just arrived in North Carolina.

    Dealer setup will begin no earlier than 2pm, depending on how fast the room is ready. I'd plan for about 3.

    So this is my first TFcon :D  and I was curious what is the dealer room like? Packed? Do people bargain or haggle? Is there a lot of stuff or only a little?

    It looks huge from all the fan videos and tf fans I've spoken with, but I am just curious and excited!!

    You'll know tomorrow just like the rest of us. Compared to last year I'm expecting it to be quite large.
