There is no southeast retro gaming convention that I know about. Have I missed one? Is anyone near the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area? Or even with a few hours of this area that are interested in starting one? I can help organize it. I have personally never been to a gaming convention. So experienced people would help. I've attended comic conventions before. Anyone?
