    Always nice to have more pop culture conventions around.

    Sadly I don't live near sydney.

    I just printed my Weekend pass off and really looking forward to this!

    Can't wait to take part in the Street Fighter IV tournament on Sunday afternoon

      I'd hit that Micha girl. I'd hit it more if she wore glasses.

    This Con has been going on for 3 years now and I just find out about 2 weeks ago, And I live on the same street it's on, huh.
    Looking forward to Saturday
