If you've ever said (of a convention), "That was LAST weekend?!", then Convention Awareness Day 2006 is for you. If of course, you happen to be in Texas.

Convention Awareness Day is returning for its second year of reminding potential Texas convention goers that "You Still Can't Go if You Don't Know!". The brainchild of none other than JediCole, this annual event will bring together representatives of various science fiction, anime, horror, toy, fan, comic, and literary conventions for a one-day informative event. The purpose is to foster a sense of community within and awareness of the richly diverse convention scene in Texas.

Several 2006 conventions have already signed on to be represented (including All-Con 2006 and Texas Frightmare Weekend, one of the newest to join the scene).

This event will be held in conjunction with the monthly Metroplex Die Cast & Collectibles Show on Saturday, January 14, 2006 at the Sterling Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Admission is just $1.00 and includes both CAD06 and the Die Cast show. Be sure to stop by the CAD06 table for your free Texas Convention Guidebook filled with articles, local fan club lists, and information on upcoming conventions in Texas.

I hope to meet some SSG folks at Convention Awareness Day 2006!
