Get Ready for the Tri-Cities Anime club X_x

Our anime club is making the trip down from virginia/tennessee to atlanta for AWA, now at first we were skeptical, but then we heard about how bug the dealer rooms are, so that was a plus, but then one of our officers in the club said it was a relitavly small con... until I realized "yo dude... its in friggin ATLANTA.... you think there will only be like 300-500 people at a con in THAT big of a city?

so I came as an unnoficial embassador (aka they dont know I am here) from TCAnime, to retrieve info from people who have been there before... such as whats the usual population at this con, do we have to worry about me and my friends going to room parties and getting plastered at 3 am.... (I <3 Chattacon) and exactly what is there to do at this con... so info is greatly appreciated... and I will see you all in september... look for me I'll either be dressed as Zell from ff7 or Auron from ff10 ^_^

I'm not expert on the con, since I've only been there once, but I'll try to help you out.

From what I understand, it's growing pretty quickly every year. AWA 2005 had about 6,000 people.

AWA has the normal convention stuff. Gaming, different anime showing all day, an artist's alley, a masquerade, karaoke (didn't they?), guest panels, a gigantic dealer's room, and Midnight Madness. I thought the dealer's room was fantastic. They also have a rave (rave-ish thing, anyway XD) and a fancy dress ball.

Midnight Madness is a two or three hour thing were they show funny clips from the internet and TV, along with a badly dubbed Japanese movie. I think it's the AMV Hell guys who put together Midnight Madness, but I may be mistaken.

Overall, the con is really fun and worth going to. I hope I helped. ^_^

If you are representing multiple clubs, let me invite you to the clubs panel! I usually organize it (or i have for the last few years), and I'm always glad to welcome new faces!

And I thought Dave Merrill put on Midnight Madness (he does Anime Hell), not the AMV hell guys, but I could be wrong.

P.S. *cough* You could certainly look into coming to the FREE con in atlanta *cough cough* That I happen to run *cough cough* That is also growing very fast *cough cough*

I think you're right. That just sounds right... I knew it was something about Anime and Hell though! n_n;

Actually, there were closer to 7,500 people there. There was also a Cowboy Bebop Lounge, set up kinda like a jazz club (a wonderful alternative to the rave for those who wanted to relax from the day's activities) I hope they bring back the Bebop Lounge.
