2BeContinued

A northern Indiana/Chicago-area convention founded in 1998, which ran five times between its founding and 2006. Midwest Science Fiction and Fantasy Association, (MSFFA) was the corporate parent.

2BeContinued was put together by a group which had focused on running parties at various conventions with the desire to create a con which offered a larger exposure to media fandom in a fan-run setting.

Located in different venues for each of its years, 2BeContinued never really managed to build a core membership and a variety of concom decisions in its final year led to its demise.
