    My limited understanding is that Sansweet really wants to use Indy as the location and the new convention center won't be done by then... again, these are just rumors that I think have been swirling around.

    Yeah... it'll only be what? 100F in April. (Yes the new Convention Center is nice... what I've seen of it anyway). But, standing in line - and you know you will - would be killer, especially for those in costume!

    it's been awhile since I've heard anything. Weren't there some other cities on the "short list" e.g. Baltimore, Chicago, even Orlando?

    I'm pulling for either Indy or Orlando. Considering my entire family loves going to them, Indy is realy close, and we love Florida. Not to mention if it were in Florida I'd be able to visit with all my Florida internet friends finaly.

    I'm going for Indy or Chicago, since I'm closest to those 2. and will be even after I'm out of the army.

    I'm betting he will announce it at SDCC. It makes MUCH more sense putting it in the middle of the country where its accessible by all. Even though I am on the east coast, I am totally against the Baltimore and Orlando as being choices, but I'm hoping for Indy or Chicago.

    I will be seeing Steve at the 501st dinner at WonderCon this weekend. I will pick his brain and report back in a few days.

    Rumor has it that an announcement will come this summer.

    Anywhere but L.A. The Hotels, restraunts, bars, and the convention center itself must be centrally located

    I think the new National Harbor, Gaylord convention Center - the biggest on the East Coast would be a great location. Lots of hotel space, right on the Potomac, water taxis to additional hotels and dining in Old Town Alexandria.

    Check it out! Probably one of the most amazing Hotels outside of Las Vegas...

    I still don't understand why LFL doesn't take Vegas seriously, we have unlimited convention and hotel space, haha.

    Amen Andy, I don't get it either. Vegas is perfect for conventions, and there is a ton to do there.

    For my part, as I live in Iceland I vote for a place that has international flight arrivals. So I don´t have to work my way through the states from NY, Baltimore, Boston and such. They have to think about us foreigners to who live here in Europe

    But Indy was great, could not get to LA as planned. But I vote for Orlando as there is a nonstop flight from Iceland.
