Convention and meetup schedule

Our big events are most definitely limited to a couple cons per year, but there are quite a few of us, and so we often have at least one TPP member at many conventions across the U.S. Below is a list of where we have some amount of presence, doing casual meetups and having multifandom fun, or out and out hosting suites and putting on con programming. For all meetups, we typically blast out details on social media, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Facebook.
