/me won't be there - too soon and too far away. As is I'm trying to figure out if I'll be able to go to anything more recent or further away (distance-wise) than the next upcoming Sakuracon.<P><P>------------------

I'd love to come, especially since there's a bunch of friends down in that area that I'd like to visit, but I just don't have the cash this year. Maybe next year.<P>------------------

/me clears throat<P>Lost of people will be at Otakon, of course. We have many things planned. If you want to find us, I'll be holding up my loverly large #avalon sign which will includ teh avalon crest and the # symbol. Even if you're just from the forum and not the channel, you're welcome to come over and say hi. and remember, the MegaTokyo panel we've determined is going to spontaneously turn into a Keenspot gathering of DOOM. beware....

Damnit, I'd love to go. Being on welfare sucks.<P>Next year, we should all make it to Toronto for Anime North 2002, have a party. However, due to the fact that I am a welfare bum, if I do get a hotel suite, or even a room, for us to meet in, I'd have to charge some sort of admission or something to recoup my losses. So, pray that I get a job.

Well, I don't IRC much, and I'm fairly new here (heck, I'm not even sure if I've posted on this board at all), but I am trying to hit Otakon. Thing is, I didn't find out until relatively late, so right now, I've no place to board up down in Baltimore, which really is not helping things.<P>------------------

Oh, yes, and be warned... any references at Otakon to "chop", "all your base", or other in-jokes that have far outlived their humorous lifespans will be met with immediate and ruthless defenestration.
