I've been looking at advertisement opportunities for my YouTube channel, I saw something about ads in the program. I may just put some money aside for going to the convention and getting an ad...

Have you ever contacted the Retro League Podcast about doing a possible interview?

They have interviewed convention organizers in the past and one of the hosts lives in IL.

After hearing the prices for vendor tables, I sure wish I lived closer!   We'd be all over that action.

I look forward to plenty of pics and video though. :)

We're close to another sell out year on a side note: Due to server problems at atari-users.net (which also host AVC Online's website)

Our original VGS site will be down(same goes for AVC Online). At this time We don't plan on doing a back up site for AVC Online

but we do have  one for VGS at angelfire (which was the original host for AVC Online).

The back  up VGS site is done in Basic Html instead of WordPress,but still has the feel of WordPress version(there is few things that needs to

worked on descriptions for vendors and sponsors, since the slides aren't clickable. but most of the import stuff is there,registration layout,contact us,etc, Game area

pages will be updated prob after MGC)

you can reach the back up site at http://avc.videogamesummit.net

(we will keep the backup site active and up to date as well even when the original site is back up and running,for those who like the basic version)
