    I'd love to make this an int'l event We'll be more than happy to have you if there is any way you can attend !!!! i understand the costs would be really big. I know at one point the UK to US exchange rate was very favorable, but I don't know if that is still the case (not that it makes that much of a difference).

      Has a location or region been solidified yet?

      I am sure I can secure plenty of room for such an event in the CA. Bay Area and have several locations available in the Central Valley.

      We have multiple Martial Arts schools with many conections to youth centers etc. In the San Jose area I have the use of 2 schools that both have boxing rings also.

      If an area is predetermined, I can make some calls. Only problem would be to have the number of speed bags set up that we need.

      For those of you that dont mind sleeping on the floor (mats) we can also have a place to crash if needed.

      You guys have earned my admiration and respect.

      If I can help, count me in.

      WOOF!

      I may also be able to hook up a spot in Long Beach area.

        I think the thread title needs to be fixed. It says, "convention". Should we change it to "Kahnvention" or
        "Speed Baggers 1st Annual International Kahnference
        "

            This is getting Kahntagious. BTW, there are 1947 words that begin with 'con.' Let the "pun-ning" kahntinue.

              Man Biff, where did you find the time to sit with a dictionary and count all those "con" words? Did you ever lose count and have to start all over?????

              ?????????

                  Jeez BT, I hope I didn't come across as the serious geek type (although I may look it). I'm pretty thick-skinned and knew you were kidding!

                  I lead a boring life and love to read the dictionary. I'm up to the "M's" now. I did lose count several times, and became so frustrated that I dis-kahntinued that approach.

                  Actually, I just Googled "words that begin with con."

                  EDIT: Oh no, I just re-read this post. I AM A GEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    I don't think any of that is boring. I think little facts like that are interesting.
                    Did you know it is ok to use "moose", "mooses", or "meese" when referring to more than one moose? I think that rules! If it's ok to do that, than that law should be allowed for other common spelling and pronunciation annoyances!

                      Not yet. We're still gathering estimates about prices in various locations. I think it's fair to see it will likely be either West Coast or East Coast though, probably not in the middle. Feedback from people is they want a destination that will interest spouses, friends, or family (Not that there isn't places like that in the middle of the country).

                      I am sure I can secure plenty of room for such an event in the CA. Bay Area and have several locations available in the Central Valley.

                      We have multiple Martial Arts schools with many conections to youth centers etc. In the San Jose area I have the use of 2 schools that both have boxing rings also.
                      Logistically this would be much simpler if we could find a place that already has multiple speed bags, but I'm talking something on the order of 8 to 10 speed bags... not many gyms with that many.

                      If I can help, count me in.
                      Keep your eye on this area of the forums, we'll be making decisions in the next 6-8 weeks I think (in regards to a location).

                        Ha! I'd be all for it, but Alan is much too modest to have anything like that.

                          You're right. When it comes to names, that would be no Kahntest.

                          Sorry, but I would not Kahnsent to that.

                                Glad to hear you guys are on board ... details will be coming soon, I hope. It's not easy finding a place that can accomodate this. NOISE and $$$$$ are serious considerations
