    Too cool! A local con! With this and TFCon, I get to go to two cons in a row. =)

    Finally, something fairly close I can actually go to. Also, my first con.

    This gets my vote for the best, most adorable obscure geek-reference name for a local convention ever.

    Love that graphic.

    My first and last Botcon was the one held in Durham in 2001. It'll be very nice to have the option of having another convention here in NC I REALLY hope I can go.
