For those confused as to what a special convention is, it's just an international convention with a new name. Similar to how regional conventions used to be district conventions. One extra day of boring talks and experiences
2017 Special Conventions.
One extra day of boring talks and experiences
thank you, that's very interesting
I thought they where just generally bigger in terms of (international) attendance rather than longer in length - now I know that they're a whole extra day longer!
So the Special Conventions are FOUR days long this year - including the extra day.
A couple of years ago, some friends of ours wanted so badly to go to a particular "Special" Convention in another country.
They were so worried, because they had "applied", but had not heard back yet as to whether they were "accepted" or not.
I said something like "..... um, so just go then. Book your flights and hotel. Its not like they check your name at the door.."
They looked at me like I had 2 heads and a devils tail! OMG! They were flabbergasted that I would even suggest such a thing! AHHHHHHRRGGGG!!!
I just walked away..... idiots...
