Southwest Boasts Five Fan Cons This Weekend

22 June 2011 by

I was just taking a look at our list of fan conventions for June ’11 to see what’s going on this weekend (June 24-26) and realized that almost half the events are here in the Southwest region; from TrekExpo in Oklahoma to CombatCon in Nevada.

I don’t think I’ve noticed this sort of concentration of events regionally before. Has anyone else?
