Ok retro-gaming guys and girls I just ran across a group that are trying to bring a gaming expo to the mid-west USA.
I don't know a lot about it other then whats on the web but the more people we get into retro-gaming and exposure to it the better IMHO.
They have an Indie Go Go fund raiser going on to raise funds for infrastructure costs etc so check out the links to it and others who have gone.
It also looks like they need vendors, exhibitors, and sponsors for the event so if you are one or know some please contact them about it and give them the info.
Below you will find links to the Indie Go Go fund raiser the actual event and news clippings etc:
