I wish it was back in the Schaumburg area. :\ I was hoping I wouldn't have to take off work, but looks I will have to since it's 30-40 minutes from my house.

Haha as a resident from there I'd agree but it gets pretttty boring. HAHAHA Thank god we will have a con be there!!! I really realllllly hope it will be there from now on, but if no, that's okay too. I'm just still in shock I will have an anime con ten minutes from my house. I'm so excited.

Will Kollison Con have a roadshow/discount badge sale at ACEN?

Would this con be good to take a high school anime club to for a quote unquote club field trip?
I'm in the real early stages of trying to find this for the club I run to do outside of the school.

Probably not going; Chicago TARDIS is in the same month. I do want to take my Kaiba to an anime con, though...but as a preteen I was too young for ACen...I doubt he'll be old enough because he's two years younger than me! Maybe we'll just go trick-or-treating together. :3

Do you HAVE to get a badge to just walk around, or is the badge just to get into panels, marketplace, and artist alley?

Yeah I heard it was chill, I didn't go last year (lack of money/school) but this year I can because it's so close. I feel it will be nice to have a chill small con between ACEN. I pre-regged at ACEN, it was so cheap~ 30 bucks!!! :D I'm pretty pumped, but I only have a little bit of time to work on any sort of cosplay this summer O_O. haha
