sometimes members of the list will meet up
at various conventions. the most notable (as it is the most hyped
and has it's own branch off list) is anime expo in california. since
an awful lot of our members hail from iowa state university, and otherwise the midwest in general; it seems as if
midwestern conferences get a lot of talk too. those crazy engineers
and their crazy anime conventions. everyone's favorite new member,
gootagirl (who hates carnival) has proposed a get together for carnival
in brazil in 2003. we shall see how that develops.
