    I always go. I always like to mess around with the out of towners who come here. Oh yeah I'm also a nerd!

    I GO TO GENCON EVERY YEAR. WELL SENSE 1995 ANYWAY. THE PART THAT I LIKE IS TO CHECK OUT WHAT EVERYONE IS WEARING.

    I hope I can go this year. I usually am too broke to get passes and it's pretty far from my house. I've never been there, but maybe this year...

    How much does it cost? I've never been there. I usually shy away from conventions.

    Hey, careful with the out-of-towners, there! ;)

    It seems like a couple of y'all will be there, and I know that at least one Minneapolis fan and two Chicagoans will be there for all or part of the con. Perhaps a get-together would be in order?

    Alright...that's three for sure, one maybe from WI?? I still think we should get together there...ya know, just maybe have lunch and hang out for a bit. I'm there all weekend, if anyone wants to say howdy!

    And my little harmless plug:

    GO BUCKS!
    (I have tickets! Nya nya! *LOL*)

    I'm curious too. I'll be there late Friday through Sunday.

    Basically, I'm gonna be there all four days (I hope...rides are iffy so far, and I refuse to take the bus. Childhood trauma and all) For sure i'm gonna be there on Thursday and Saturday...Friday is likely, but unless there's something good on Sunday, I won't go.

    Anyone feel like getting together there and hanging out? I'm not too keen on going alone for some reason

    Just a little note here: Page, are you going? I'm off all weekend, so if you feel like going, let me know.

    I'd be interested in meeting up at some point. Trouble is, it's hard for non-locals to assess the when and the where. Also, part depends on when lovely SW stuff may be going on.

    I just received an e-mail from Wizards. Steve Sansweet's Star Wars: Connections presentation will be shown twice at Gen Con: Friday at 3 p.m. and Saturday at 5 p.m., both times at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom.

    I'll be at Gen Con all four days.

    Well, I'm definetly going to be at those!

    If anyone wants to meet...the main entrance with the hanging sculpture is an easy point to pick. If you're wearing a costume, describe it and tell what time you'll be there. Pictures help, and stuff like that. I'll be there as much as I can if anyone wants to hang out durring the day.

    I'll be entering the costume contest as the 4th Doctor (from Doctor Who) along with two women portraying Sarah Jane Smith and Leela. My picture is in my profile. I'll also be helping sing backup for Luke Ski's performance of "It's a Fanboy Christmas." I've seen Luke perform at Gen Con before and I have his CDs. He always puts on a funny show and he's debuting a couple of new parodies about Buffy and Angel.

    Nope, I'm not going, and I'm pissed. Oh well, I've still got at least one more chance until it goes to Indianapolis, right?

    Awwwww!! :( I'll have to show you all the cool stuff I got today when I go to work on Monday. I missed GenCon two years ago (found out what it was the monday after it ended)

    Want me to get Stackpole's autograph for you? I will...he's gonna be there and so am I!! Got his today...man, he's cool. Zahn's there too, in fact. And RA Salvatore, and some other NJO author I didn't recognize.
