    All of them may be taken by now, but I'd be willing to pitch in, depending on the cost.

    Just upping this in case this idea is still alive. It's getting close to the perma-close region.

    I doubt it. t's probably going to be in Indy again. And like a moron, I'm probably going again! LOL It wasn't that be, just be prepared to spend most of your time waiting...

    or waiting in line to get a ticket so you can go wait in another line

    But was the experience worth the wait?

    For the most part yes. What sucks is waiting in line 2 hours and then not being able to get in.
    If, for some reason, they actual have people organize it next time, it could be much better.
    Although the idea of standing in line to get a ticket to stand in another line is ridiculous, it at least prevents you from waiting and not getting let in to the event.
    Lots of people complained about the autograph lines and they weren't bad at all...unless you were after Carrie Fisher. That was like a 6 hour wait at one point!!

    Howdy. I've just gotten through reading this whole thread and I've got to admire you guys for your work and perseverence.

    The one thing you guys haven't considered is that Celebration always takes place in early May. What happens in May every year in Boston? Everyone graduates college. There wouldn't be enough hotel rooms to support both the graduation influx and the convention.

    But even then, the hotel prices would keep a lot of people from coming. Economically, it makes sense to stay in a city like Indianapolis. Its cheaper for Wizards to rent the space and they know its cheaper for the attendees as far as hotel/travel goes.

    I keep hearing San Diego is where it will be (thru rumors).

    I think that Celebration 3 here in Boston would be a great idea. I wasnt able to go to indy last time, so im just hoping that they do it here....but where would it take place? Bayside expo center?

    We were thinking the new convention center that's being built for 2004.

    There's no way they could do it at Bayside...at least i don't think so. They had a ton of people for C2 and plenty of room, but poor organization

    I didnt think it could be held there. I go to the boat show every year there, and its soo crowded its not even funny. Plus, almost all of the people there are Bostonians-- Next let's try half the population of the star wars fandom.....>.<


    EDIT: Wait, new convention center? where's that going to be?

    If Boston can hold the Democratic Convention,it can handle CIII [face_plain]


    We should start up on this thing again.Get a petition started or something.Write letters to whoever needs to know about this new Con center.

    We can give it the ol' academy try, but I don't think they'll move it even if the whole state writes in. Indiana is too central for the US. They'd risk losing some people by shifting it to one coast or the other.
