July Games Convention Calendar update

We added a lucky 13 conventions this past month which if my total count is right pushed us a hair over 600 cons!  All but two of these new cons were outside of the US.

Three more online gaming cons were added to the list and it really looks like that trend is taking off.  Virtuacon will be the first offering by the people at RPGGeek.com, LUG Con claims to be quarterly (although September will be their 2nd event) and the people who ran last year's 30th Anniversary Star Frontiers Online Con are in the preliminary stages of putting together another!
