METROCON 2010 (7.23-25)

Post by Lolita Minako » Sat Feb 06, 2010 5:27 am

METROCON returns for it's eighth year to Tampa, FL! Yay!!!

Popular Events that are returning:
(The Original) Anime Human Chess Match - Year 7
Fantasy Masquerade - Much "Edo" About Nothing
METRO Star Party
Picture This! Photography Contest
Anime Idol Singing Competition
AMV Contest (hosted by Ashley Clark of

This year, we are proud to announce that Robert Axelrod (voice of Lord Zedd of the Power Rangers series) will be joining us this year, as well as some familiar faces. Keep an eye on the main page for more guests!!!

Tryouts for the 3 main events will be on February 13 and 21 at 10a and 2p at MOSI in Tampa. You can find out the character lists by visiting the METROCON website. Interviews for Ballroom Ushers will be conducted during the 2pm audition on February 21.

Mascot audtions for the Ninja vs. Samurai theme will be at 9am on February 20, also at MOSI. We are on a tight schedule for this one, so please arrive early. If you arrive after 9, you will NOT be able to audition.

Registration is currently under way, and Vendor Booths are still available. More Artists' Alley table MAY become available closer to the convention (it is currently sold out), so keep an eye on the Main Page's News section. The Embassy Suites is also currently accepting METROCON reservations.

To enter a contest/buy a ticket/get a Vender or Artist booth/register for panels/sign up to volunteer, you will be using MyConsOnline. If you have done any of the aforementioned things before, you do NOT have to make a new login. However, your AnimeMetro Forum ID WILL NOT work.

Okay, I think I covered everything...if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. If I don't know the answer, I can definitely get it for you!! Keep an eye on the METROCON website for all updates. Or, you can find us at the following Social Networking sites:
Twitter (updated frequently)
Facebook (updated frequently, also with posts from fans)
MySpace (updated in bunches)
LiveJournal (open community, will also contain the larger news announcements from the webmaster/staff)

So, who's going? What are you wearing?
