Stormy Skies Unlikely to Deter Thousands of Die-Hard G.I. Joe Fans From Attending JoeCon

Serious rain is falling all across Illinois at the moment, but it's unlikely to effect the action occurring largely indoors at this year's JoeCon 2015 in Springfield, IL. (Photo: Ev Cabrera Marinucci)

Bottom Line: Well, the sun is up but we can’t see it through all the rain, lightning and tumbling thunderheads. Nonetheless, fans from all over the U.S. will be headed to Illinois’ capital city this weekend for 3 days of fun with the world’s favorite action figure—GIjOE. Just a heads up though, whether you’re on the road or up in the air, THIS is what it looks like down here on the ground. It’s raining cats-n-dogs at the moment (great for when we plant corn and soybeans later this month), but we don’t think the storms will have ANY effect on the thousands of excited fans who’re planning to attend. Safe travels, everyone. Hope to see you soon. Go, JOE!

    Thousands? Really??

    • You were right, Kevin. It was more in the hundreds.

        Hundreds? Really?? Well, I suppose so Mark…LOL ! Hope you had a good time. If I could have done it for the day on Saturday, it would have been there primarily to see you, Scott and a couple other folks. On the dealer side of things, I would have been peeved if I traveled down to Springfield for five 1:6 scale dealers. Hopefully, those 5 guys did well.
