Orlando CGers - Megacon?

Postby Nerdgasm on Wed Nov 14, 2007 10:56 am

I was wondering if there's any number of CGers in the Orlando/Central Florida area, and if so, if there was any interest in a meetup at/around Megacon. Seemed like a natural time for a comic gathering :P

Well, I'm not that far from the Orlando area (only about 80 miles), but what is Megacon?
Comic Genesis Comic Cookout VIII was July 30th, 2011 (over a year ago!) in NYC. Want to host/plan Comic Cookout IX in summer (fall?) 2013? Feel free to drop me a PM.

Megacon is, as far as I know, the biggest convention that happens in the central Florida area... comics, sci-fi, anime, fantasy... little bit of everything. ( http://www.megaconvention.com/ ) IIRC, last year they had some webcomics panels/guests. People come from pretty far away, so I thought it might be a neat time for a CG gathering.

I might be able to make it. I'm in SC, so it's not too great a distance, and it falls on my spring break anyway. So I think I might book a trip to Florida :D

I might go, seeing as I live in southern Florida. I didn't feel like going to the last Con, but maybe things'll be different this time around.

They don't have any programming listed yet (so I don't know if they're having any webcomics events/panels this year) but maybe a Saturday meetup...?

Well, I found out that MegaCon coincides with my Spring Break, so, yeah, there's a pretty good chance I'll be going.

*looks at college calendar*
Last classes February 29 (F).
Spring Break begins March 1 (S), and lasts through March 9 (N).
So, it's during my Spring Break, too! Interesting timing.
Classes resume March 10 (M).

Do most colleges have the weird M-T-W-R-F-S-N thing?

So for anybody who is interested in going... meetup at the con, or maybe a dinner meetup nearby?

And FWIW, the Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards will be at the con on Saturday. Dunno what time.

I'll be the geek walking around, shouldn't be hard to find me.

No go for me this year, I'm afraid. Maybe some other time?
