Well the problem is that Im in pittsburgh now. and no concievable venue. I was jsut spitballing to have it around Comic Con time. yeah yeah yeah there are logistical issues involved. Liek getting our collections and crap. But I figure who cares. what have we not seen in the past 5 cons that I have hosted?

I figure worst case there will be less MWCon and more Comic con!!!! getting people to show up is better I think. Liek have a dinner and jsut talk macross and other stuff. what do you think? of course i will make a shirt.

Unless someone else wants to host this year's con. I know last year we were desperate so we used Phatslappy's house. But I for one would like to steer clear of that type of get together.

you know... since Nick isn't on the west coast to plan everything out.... i'd be interested in taking a shot at organizing the Con....

I'm not sure exactly what people would like to have at MW Con.... but we could plan out some stuff....I'd need some help with this... In terms of Location, i might be able to host it at my workplace if it was on a Sunday....

i have access to a decent sized conference room, kitchen, and a smaller room we could put displays up or watch movies in.... dont' know how comfy it'd be since there's just chairs and tables but we could make it work....

haha... we could play Poker, Bang, Video Games, show off Customs, watch Macross, eat food, play poker.... talk about macross.... have some cosplayers... play some more poker...... eat some more.... anything else???

haha.... if you'd want cute asian jailbait High School girlies serving us drinks.... I'd invte some of my youth to come if they're interested in Anime mecha and stuff...

I work at the ARC in Long Beach. Our chapter has some conference rooms that i'd be able to reserve for events. I could say it's an event for my youth volunteers, and have some of them attend and it should be fine to use it.

I'll check the schedule to see what dates are available around June/Comic Con/AX time.... We could start planning this now....

any suggestions or objections???

kiririth's location isn pretty cool. They had 2 rooms with a kitchen in the middle. Plenty of tables and chairs. And if anyone got hurt, there's all the donated blood in the freezer. I recommend the B postitive cuz it looks like the O negatives were starting to curdle.

Does anyone want to do another MW Con Poker Tourney??? Although i said in my 1st post that we could play Poker at the con.... that would be a side thing during the actual event....

i wouldn't be able to host an actual tournament at the Chapter so i'm saying if you wanted to organize a tourney... it'd have to be somewhere else....

Just to throw that out there.... Here are the dates that i have available to use my workplace...

Sunday, June 10

Sunday, July 1

Sunday, July 8

Sunday, July 22

Sunday, July 29

Not many people have really replied or commented about being interested in a Con this year... Are people out there wanting to attend a MW Con in Long Beach, CA????

ooooo... what could be the grand prize this year??? wonder when the SV-51 is scheduled for release..... haha... the poker tourney is used to pay for the food for the con and stuff...

I'm thinking of having different areas we can display stuff, sell stuff, have the usual customs contest... food stuff.... continual macross episodes running on a projector.....

maybe run some different Video game tourneys.... what else are people interested in???

I'd definately be interested in going to a MW Con this year, especially since last year I cut my attendance short due to Anime Expo. It's still pretty early, I'm guessing a lot of people just aren't ready to commit to attending, yet.

shame on them haha. They arent hard core enough !!!!!! haha j/k cmon what else is gonn go on? I say July 22. I will try to convince some of the east coasters here to go and then go to SDCC.

Yeah, Kiririth has a good spot for holding the con. There are plenty of chairs and the rooms are freaking big which means things won't have to be so splintered as they were in past years. That means we should be able included more people in everything so that we don't have the one or two guys stuck guarding the customs.

Why not come and have the meet up thing at Tekkoshocon? They have Mari confirmed as coming. :D

They are also in Pittsburgh.

Well.... Since several people think it's a good idea to hold to con at my work... i need to book the date and reserve it now and to make sure nothing else is going on that day....

I think July 22nd is also a good date to hold it since it's in the middle of the Con season but close enough for people like Nick to come out for this and SDCC Comic-Con.....

So unless there's any objections, here's the information of the date and location of MW Con 2007

Date: Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

Location: LBARC - Long Beach, CA 90806

Time: 10am

In order to not affiliate my workplace with MW Con, we will call the location LBARC. Since this is not an LBARC sponsored event, i have to maintain seperation and not use the full name of my workplace.

Now that we have a date and place, we can start organizing the events of the Con... people can start planning to attend or not... details will be posted as soon as we come up with logistics....

SAVE THE DATE!!! JULY 22nd!!!
