    Ai-Kon 2005 (Winnipeg MB Canada)

    I was just wondering if there are anyother fellow Winnipeggers (Or from the surrounding area) are going to attend this years Ai-Kon this summer.

    I've gone to the last 2 years, and I've had the most fun I've had in a long time.

    They haven't set a Date or place yet, but their fourm is being constently updated with new news and information

    That website is http://www.ai-kon.org

    I'm actually thinking about cos-playing this year as my favorite Web-comic character, Evil Dan from Life of Riley (http://clanbob.net)

    ~ It's kinda easy for me though, I look like him ^_^;

    I just thought I would update this thread with new information.

    The Mascot for the Convention has been chosen, and you can see it here, http://www.ai-kon.org/gallery/Ai-Kon2005/2005_G The winning artist did a excellent job.

    No news on when and where, but the organizers have mentioned that the Winnipeg Convention Center is being concidered as a possible location, but it could just be a rumor. Personally, I hope that they have it at the Shereton Hotel again, while the local did have its problems (like the Line to the dealers room going up 2 flights of stairs and wait times being something like 2 hours), Its fun to go to a 24 hour con. But if it is at the Convention center, it will give the convention a more professional feel to it.

    for more Info, Go check out the sites forums http://ai-kon.org

    Thanks, and I hope to see everyone at Ai-Kon 2005!

    Now, I know there are some Canadian members, I just hope that there are some members from Manitoba (or from the Dakota's) who can attend this convention. I've gone the last 2 years, and had a blast each time (not to mention all the great swag I bring home every year, you should see my Manga collection).

    This is another first for this convetion, Last year, it was the first time the Con was 24hrs, and this is the first time that the Con will be in, well, a Convention center. I've attended several job fares in the center, and its quite large, and the food court is great.

    If any AO members do decide to come, we should meet up, I end up spending most of my time in the Games room watching people kill them selves playing DDR, or watching Anime Screenings.

    Again, more info can be found at http://www.ai-kon.org
