Visioncon is a nice little family convention that takes place in the one building and has several different events like Magic, I usually run Supremacy (Risk on steroids) everyyear, various miniatures, RPGs. They also do a Masquerade on Saturday, Art show & charity art auction (nice stuff), decent Dealer's room, and an award for best room party. They even have daycare until 6pm. They haven't done anything with their website for the '08 con yet, but it should be up soon. However, they do have a forum that you can reach from the website.


Since the people that run it are good friends of mine, I used to help run it & was a roommate with them a long time ago, I can pass along any questions directly.

BTW: Anyone running an event at least 6 hours in duration gets into the Con for free. So, whether it's several different SWM events, or a mix of whatever, a few different people could get in free and at the same time make sure there will be games to play. Just drop a line on the Visioncon forums, under the thread Gaming/Tabletop. The earlier the better choice of time slots available.

Would depend on when and where really. My work schedule is often somewhat hard to pin down very far in advance, but if it was a weekend, I could probably make it all work out.

I would consider the Visioncon. That is sort of slow period at work and I could make it there with a full day of driving. Cost seems to be resonable.

Visioncon would be most, most excellent! I think I could help do some organization for something like that.

It depends when and where. If it's near Oklahoma, possibly. Summer or Christmas break would be good, too. :D

If we were going to do it, we would have to make it at, or near, a place with plenty of things for the rest of the family to do.

That, in turn, drives WHEN we are going to do it. For example, if it was near a city with an amusement park, a water park, a zoo, and a baseball team it would be great in the summer, but bad in the winter.

Conversely, if it was in a warm locale in the winter.

Vegas or Chicago. If I'm to go, it MUST coincide with a convention and be in a decent city.

Here are some cons:

I would also accept having it in Europe or even Canada.
