I don't live in that area, but one of the people that got me interested in anime does/did. I think he joined the army/navy and lives in California now.

Yes! Rockford Cosplayers Unite! ^ ^ I have always wondered why they haven't done even a smaller convention or something at the Cliffbreakers Restaurant/Convention Center or even at the Metro. XD Any idea?

Our "club" (now only 6 people) had some illusions of grandeur about having a convention in the area, but there are so many legal hassles involved. Just ask the ACEN crew...

Personally, I would like to still be part of setting something up eventually. It would take a serious group effort (time and money), but I think it would be worth it.

As for locations:
We thought of the MetroCentre, but there are no hotels around it. Otherwise, it would be a great location. I imagine it would be expensive to rent out though.

Indoor Sports Center is a good idea. Never thought about that one. Probably the same issue with hotels though.

Probably the best bet would be one of the hotels on East State street. There are at least 3 large hotels and it's also a prime driving location (just off of I90). The only negative is that half of the hotels are on the opposite side of East State Street (not exactly safe having tons of pedestrians crossing that street). Another benefit of the area is that the Van Galder Bus depot is right there. Round trip tickets from the Chicago area are ~$35.

If we went low key to start things off, any location could work. Maybe a partnership with the Discovery Center Museum or similar organization would be possible.
