    Looks like Graphic Con is starting to make major headlines now. Thanks Dirtdives for putting this together. Much appreciated!
    If anyone's up for a roadtrip to Sudbury in June, I have space in my home for people to crash that weekend.

    BlazedStarbon I'm just sorry it is taking so long to get all of these up.......There are so may cons listed that are no longer in effect and even more that I haven't gotten to post yet. I'm just doing up until July so Ipeople don't miss out in any one Regiment.....even one day might be too late. Once I have all the Regiments accounted for...I can get back to finishing the rest of the year. I can't post in the Canadian forum but put the word out that this list is here and if I missed any Cons to let me know so I can add it to the list.

    Dirtdives no worries here! If you require a list, I can always PM you event updates to help out for 2017. Otherwise, your efforts to do this for each regiment is a wonderful help!

    Just a few more to show that there's more to Canada than just Ontario and southern Quebec. These are ones that are in my local area that I'm currently planning on attending, I'll add more as the events show up on the radar as they tend to do.
