This thread is to give people a heads up to cons, whether already established or up and coming, in their area (It's always nice when the gas money isn't as expensive as a plane ticket). I know you can use web sites like UpcomingCons or AnimeCons to find this kind of stuff as well, but I figured that this could also serve as a multipurpose meetup thread. You could mention a convention you found, that might not even be on one of those big websites, and organize a meetup with people in the area. Related to that a friend of mine told me about a group trying to start up (they have an indiegogo page) a con in Carbondale, Il. Anybody else got a con that's fun to go to or has gone under the radar?
