2009 GLOBAL CHARITY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
The convention cities poll has closed and the top five US cities voted by fans to host a simultaneous convention the weekend of October 24-25, 2009 (along with the cities of Glasgow and Tokyo) are: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle and Kansas City.

We will be contacting the volunteers in these cities over the next week or so to go over requirements for proposals to complete the next step in the process of organizing an event in these cities.  We are hoping to have these complete by October 1 in order to open up registration for all locations.  Keep checking back to GB.net for all the latest news and details!

08-11-08: 2009 Convention Poll Now Open

The cities have been submitted and the 2009 Convention poll is now open!  You may vote in the sidebar or on the poll page.

Please keep in mind when voting that the top five US cities will be chosen to hold simultaneous events to coincide with the our Glasgow event the weekend of October 24-25, 2009Please DO NOT vote for a city if you are planning to attend the Glasgow event. We want the event planners to have a good idea of the number of attendees they should include in their planning if their city is one of the top five.

If more than 5 cities receive over 100 votes, we will consider upping the total number of cities.  PLEASE DO NOT VOTE IF YOU DON’T REASONABLY BELIEVE YOU CAN ATTEND THE EVENT IN THAT CITY.

Also, if you are planning to attend the event in Tokyo, please vote so those organizers can also use the number to assist in their planning.

Thanks to everyone who volunteered to be a part of this special event!!  Voting ends on August 21.
