Zenkaikon (King of Prussia, PA) Nov 7&8, 2009
#1
Hi everyone! I just wanted to make sure everyone knew about a Philadelphia-area convention that I am involved with, called Zenkaikon. This will be Zenkaikon's 4th year, and we are looking forward to seeing a lot of new and returning attendees. We are currently working furiously to make Zenkaikon 2009 the biggest and best yet, and there are new announcements coming out all the time. I will try to keep this thread updated as new information comes out. Also, feel free to reply to this thread with any questions you might have, and I will do my best to answer Wink
