i was thinking it could be in like hmm colorado.
any other suggestions? because i dont think the many members that live some where other than the US might come.
EDIT- TO CLARIFY:
1. CR does NOT hold conventions..... yet.

2. You will probably have to buy your own tickets and pay for your own hospitality fees and probably have to contribute some what towards funding the convention.

3. YOU ARE PROBABLY LOOKING AT ABOUT AN AVERAGE OF 1000 DOLLARS FOR A TWO WAY PLANE TICKET, FOOD AND A HOTEL, AND HELP FUND THE CONVENTION. (although if you came by bus, had a relative or some one to stay with in the place where the convention was being held you probably could cut some money off of the total costs.)

and i was thinking that tickets for the convention (would cover the funding issues) would be any where from 10-100 dollars depending on how many people show up

Conventions are always fun. However, the majority of people on this site are all fairly young. I doubt many parents would let their 13 year old child hop a plane to spend a few days with random people from the Internet.

or better yet instead of colorado how about Tiajuana (not sure about the spelling)... Anything goes in mexico. Not to mention I'd get arrested for being drunk in public or something in the states.

crunchyroll has conventions?! :O

TJ is like... half an hour by car from my parent's house.

"Sure Ma. I'll come visit. I'm just gonna need to go to Tijuana for a bit..."

Add an extra 45 minutes by car and make it Rosarito. It is just as cheap, 8x cleaner, and the food will blow your mind. Plus, Mariachi bands roam the streets like packs of dogs. I have never witnessed one, but I'm sure they have territory disputes and if we all pool our resources, we could bribe them to have a Mariachi lucha match, in full band outfit.

15? I'm not sure how many conventions you've been to, but all the ones I've gone to made it clear that all those under 18 had to be accompanied by someone of legal age.

There aren't any rules that state it must be a parent. Lots of underage people bring older friends/cousins/siblings/etc.

haha if anyone from my family besides my parents knew i watched animes or jdramas i would be made fun of till i was dead...my whole family is very machoistic and think that men should only watch football and hockey



Hell I don't even tell my friends I watch anime. The thought of what they would say? Well they probably wouldnt care but still I'll keep it to myself.

:/ That's so sad that your friends/families either don't approve or don't know.

Everyone knows that I love anime/jrock/doramas/etc. When I was in school, all my friends knew & they were fine with it, even though they weren't anime fans. My online friends are into it, though.

As for my family, my parents always come to conventions. Not because I need someone there with me, but because they're fans too and like seeing things I'm interested in. Hell, I even turned my parents into Jrock fans. My grandparents love it too.

if someone besides me pays for my expenses sure.

heck then there are the expenses of renting a hall, food, etc.

But yea we have a ton of young members, so that cuts the potential pool down to like 1/5 or something.
