>Jessi’s Guide To: Conventions in the South East

>Since I live in the South East, I always wondered just how many cons there are in this region. There seems to be THOUSANDS at times as my friends, who are spread out across the South East, seem to attend conventions every weekend. I decided to create a handy dandy guide to conventions here in the South East!
