Been thinking about having a convention for us Doomers, PWAD-Con or something similar where we could meet, swap/sell Doom stuff, play co-op or deathmatch, have a speedmap session and discuss Doom and PWADS by Doomers. It would hopefully be small enough for good discussions but large enough to keep everyone busy for 12 hours.

You're going to need a big incentive to get a decent percentage of this small community to want to either drive across country or fly across the world for this. While it sounds like a really cool idea, I can totally see myself driving across a couple states, renting an expensive room, then getting to the convention only to find like 3 other Doomers and 5 people who just really like conventions spread across 5 rooms of activity.
This idea just got one shotted.
Fonze, I see what you're saying; but I have heard of people flying halfway across the world to play Doom together and/or meet (Kristian Aro and Paul Corfiatis, Badhko (?) and the Swedish Doom scene, etc. I'm going to look into this a bit, see if it's feasible on my end and then do a formal announcement for some time next year. I don't want to rush it and I do want it to be mapper focused (because that's what I know and therein lies my main interest) but this idea has been on my mind for about 15 years now. I think it's time to at least try it; maybe in a small venue first, then expand if the idea is successful.
