KEYCON!!

KeyCon 2016 will take place in Chicago

If you are unfamiliar with KeyCon, check out KeyCon 2015 and previous events for reference.

Now let's make this happen!  KeyCon is a load of fun.  :)



Outdated info:
More
Location, date, and all other details are currently TBD.  I have created this thread/board as a place to discuss potential options and ideas.  It will be vital to have a local to the determined location take over planning and logistical responsibilities, so keep this in mind when choosing locations.

In the past we have had KeyCons in Chicago, San Jose, and Chicago.

Let`s do something in the southeast, if there are enough clackers this way.  I'd love to attend. =)

I nominate Austin, TX. There are several GH'ers local to there who would probably be willing to help organize.

Austin would also be a good excuse to come out to Texas again.  PCPartPicker is from there too.

Agreed, there's a lot of people around the East Coast. There's a surprising amount of people in Pittsburgh to New York but don't know if anyone could organize.
