JoeCon 2013 Custom Jam Event Moved To New Hotel

For those of us who wanted to attend a G.I.Joe themed custom class this year at JoeCon 2013, our options were limited. The G.I.Joe Collectors Club did not provide the fans an opportunity to sign up for an official event. So a few community leaders in the customs field put together a fan driven event called JoeCon Custom Jam. The even was to be held in the same hotel as the 2013 JoeCon event, until today.

Since it’s so late in the game, we wanted to make sure all the board members who are attending this event, know that the JoeCon Custom Jam 2013 has been moved to one of the adjacent hotels. Final details have not yet been provided to us at this time, but check the thread attached to this news story for further updates pertaining to JoeCon’s 2013 Custom Jam.

    Wish I could make it, Indy is a little to far from the West Coast for me.

    I am look forward to seeing new customs with all the knowledge that will be spread around there.

    Just a heads up. As I understand it, there are about a dozen people signed up and paid already. If you are planning to attend (even for just part of the day) please contact and ask him to add you to the list. We want to make sure no-one get's left out.
