2007-08-05 [mondo86em]: FantaSci 6 (2007) http://www.fantasci-hrcc.com will be held at the Hampton Roads Convention Center on September 29th and 30th. Its located in Hampton Virginia USA.  Not sure if I'm going....

2007-08-14 [Hedda]: OK, added!

2007-08-16 [mondo86em]: Thanks

2007-12-04 [Mordigen]: Do we need to set up a completely sepperate wiki *specifically* for each convention we want featured on here? There is a TAPScon coming July 19-20 2008 which is mentioned and featured on the Elftown Paranormal Soceity but just curious if I need to set up a wiki for the sole purpose of the convention itself

2007-12-04 [Hedda]: Oh, thank you, not logged in user. Arrr! <img:stuff/yurispirateemotionarr.png><img:img/mood/10305_1126060737.gif>

2008-03-28 [Hedda]: [Mordigen]: Yes, a short wiki-page for every event is a good idea. It takes little effort to put that up and it need only to be a very small page. It makes it possible for people going to the event to ask the others who are going there about stuff.

2008-04-03 [Mordigen]: alrighty, gotcha.
thankya :)

2008-04-06 [Rat Hacker]: I thought i should tel you that Tekkoshocon on it's main site has announced it changed it's location. SOrry I did not tell you sooner.  This year it will be at/

Radisson Hotel Pittsburgh Green Tree
101 Radisson Drive
Green Tree, PA 15205

2008-04-29 [Katie Staines]: Oh that Labyrinth Masquerade looks positively brilliant! Gosh, I would love to go to that. Has anyone here been? Or is it a one off event?

2008-05-14 [Summoner Wolf]: Dang. We need a furry con in the midwest.
Of course, the Shakopee Renn Fest is always lovely. <3 Go there, it's amazing!
Oh, and there is a new Renn Fest in Chippewa Falls. Maybe put that on the list?

2008-08-30 [iippo]: A suggestion was made: [522807] and I thought it could be applied to these pages (Elftowners who visit these events could add photos and information onto these wikipages)...?

2008-09-02 [Mordigen]: Suggestion: Can stuff from 2007 be cleared away so that more recent things can be listed closer to the top of the list?

2008-09-04 [Hedda]: [Mordigen]: No, but they should be updated and moved to 2008/2009. It takes a lot of work to do though. If no one else feels like a lot of editing and surfing the new dates, I'll take a look at it later.

2008-09-04 [Mordigen]: Ah, Gotcha :)
I'll try helping out finding new dates when I can -- but the list is so long now I feel cautious to try to update it myself becase I dont use the table tags often, so obviously not that familiar with it and wouldn't want to screw it up and just cause more for you or someone else to clean up.
But I will try to search some dates to help out, and what I can either list them here to be updated or message them to you -- either one you prefer.
