I emailed the convention coordinators a few months ago about having a ST convention in my Town the hometown of Gene Rodenberry. El Paso Texas. And they said they would be unable to host a convention here because it isnt big enough .. Well we have a sister city across the border.. From the air we look like one big city.. And both cities combined we have over 3 million.. And we also have little towns around us tat are well within driving distance to a convention.. We have had only 2 conventions here in my town which i dont get at all because this town is the town where the Creator of the show and fad all of us on this web site love and cherish .. My trekkie friends and I were conversing over this topic a while back and we wanna do a ST convention here in our town.. But we have no money.. And it would be great if the coordinators see this message and overlook their choice.. They are truly acting like ferengi and they go only where there is most profit.. But they are blinded by their lust for profit and do not look at the potentials of this town.. We have alot of ppl in the area and of course ppl fly in from other cities for the conventions as well. So we are on a potnetial gold mine.... What do you think me and my fellow trekkie do for our predicimat.. Should we email the coordinators and tell them what we think of our plan .. Or should we have someone locally try to host one.. I need insight.. Any advice or comment that your have on the matter would be appreciated.. I thank you..
