"Gods Must Be Strong"
Hey everyone, I figured I'd make a thread for this since it's going to be a real event and it'll cut down the posts in the Let It Out thread.

The convention will be held here in south Texas, probably around at South Padre Island where the annual big cons are usually held. In the past, the convention people have reserved at the very least an entire hotel floor for the con and have been successful with all the events for the three day period. I will be mostly in charge of graphics for everything but I will be responsible for the ZIvCon/DDR branch of the con and I will be doing my best to make sure it's a big success. I'll probably be making some DDR shirts/ZIv shirts for the event and I'll have my projector and sound system to use for DDR/Stepmania play all weekend. Anyone is welcome to attend and I have created this poster that will be printed and disbursed throughout my area to advertise the event. This IS for real and we are already planning out everything including the DDR tournament, prizes, and all that other good stuff including some secret goodies!

The new date set for the convention is November 18th to the 20th. I'm still working on how to run the DDR Tournament but some members have already stepped in and gave me some help on it. At this point, I was thinking of having the tournament on the 2nd day of the con to give people a bit of time to prepare for it and by an odd coincidence(maybe fate lol) the date for the tournament would be 19, November(I swear I didn't see it coming...). Any help with tournament ideas are appreciated and I'll make sure you are credited with it somehow since I have majority control over this branch of the convention.

If any changes occur, I will post them here right away since I have direct contact with the directors so be sure to check back often if you plan to attend so you don't end up misinformed. Again, if you would like any extra information don't hesitate to contact me about it.

Date/Time: Friday, November 18 at 10:00am - November 20 at 5:00pm
Location: Hilton Garden Hotel, (956) 761-8700. South Padre Island, Tx

Event list so far:
-Anime viewing room
-Vendors room
-Cosplay panel
-Cosplay contest
-Talent competition
-Anime Karaoke
-J-Rock room
-Dance Dance Revolution
-Bemani rave
-Super Smash Bros. Brawl
-Mario Kart Wii
-Marvel vs Capcom 3

The list will be updated as soon as I receive some more information. Registration information is almost done for both conventions and they said they can make arrangements for attending ZIv members who would like to room together (i.e. a suite just for us).

All rooms for any attending ZIv members are paid for and ready to go.

I really do wonder...

...if a "ZIvcon" can be dispersed all across the world? As in, we have ZIvcon Texas, ZIvcon Florida, ZIvcon Northeast Region, ZIvcon London, ZIvcon Indonesia, ZIvcon South America, etc....

...only thing is, just how would we be able to manage it each individually? :/

I think this ZIvcon should give us a template, and THANKFULLY it's really happening Smile

I think it really depends on alot of factors. On a scale like that it would take alot of money and alot of time/dedication by a big group of people who are willing to commit to it and who know what they are doing. I just finished talking to my friend about those little details and apparently the paperwork required to set up an official convention of any type requires alot of red tape and paper work along with a credit check. I got lucky when I mentioned the whole ZIvCon/DDRcon thing because they made it part of an already official convention and since we all have connections and resources here, its making things a bit easier.

Hopefully it doesn't end up being some gathering where everyone is all awkwardly silent and drinks punch. Surprised

Well, if all goes well and you continue to do these every year, I'd be willing to go next year once I'm 18 and just tell my parents I'm going on a trip with friends. :/

Nah it won't. The anime and gaming convention and the DDR tournament are all going to be going on so it'll be more than just sitting around. Plus the beach is nearby as well. And yes I'll make sure they go on yearly since I'm in charge of the part of the convention. And FYI, our official drink will be Dr. Pepper. Puppy Face

I'd come, but by the time the con rolls around, I'll only be 17, and backloaded with college apps and stuff. Maybe the next year I could make it?

If you ask Dr.Pepper very nicely you might get a sponsor.

It worked for Guns'n'Roses.

Well the coordinators just made some interesting progress on the convention. A new hotel has been chosen for the event, still at the Island, but now with a special price just for the convention. All room types (single, double suites) are all $125 and that includes breakfast and lunch buffets so that means anyone who rooms together can split the cost. That being the case, I have the room covered for whoever rooms with me since its a really great price.

http://hiltongardeninn.hilton.com/en/gi/hotels/index.jhtml?ctyhocn=BROSPGI This is the hotel's website if anyone would like to look into it further.
