RPG Con listing for Northern Indiana travels

Several of us has been thinking about heading to a local rpg con or two this year. I started putting together a list and thought to place it online for all to utilize. I think it would be fun to get back out there to conventions and try to enjoy them. I've only been to GenCon the past few years. I always have fun, but there's a difference between GenCon and all of these other cons I have listed here.

I have yet to find a good site that lists all of these with current dates and links. I also seem to be geared at not looking at Michigan for potential locations and dates. Feel free to suggest Michigan Cons or any other con within a day's easy drive for inclusion.

Right now, it's in order by date.

That's a larger list than I expected. Marmalade Dog? There used to be nice rpg cons in Detroit, but that was years ago.
