Anyone Up for a Mega Man Fan Convention?
The Mega Man community has long entertained the notion of a grand gathering. Our biggest limitation, I think, has been location. From Canada to Australia, we're truly a global community. We've got a bit of a ways to go but "Mega G.A.M. Con" could be a step in the right direction.
Long-time Rockman Corner reader Sean "Nz17" Robinson is hard at work setting up a Mega Man gathering at his G.A.M. (Games, Anime, and More) Convention. It's set to take place in Naples, Utah at the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham. The eight and a half our convention will include a number of activities, including cosplay contests, trivia, Mega Man cartoon viewings, Q&A panels and dozens of Mega Man games on-hand to play.
A fun incentive involves "unlocking" additional events and activities when you buy a ticket. For example, depending on how many tickets are sold, the convention will play host to special guests of honor, i.e former and current Mega Man staff members. Yours truly might be there too!
If you're interested, tickets are $20 per person. Children ages 9 and under get in for free. For more details and a full run-down of events, check the G.A.M website and Facebook.
