I've only been to this one once before, but found it to be a good enough experience totally worth the time and money. Plus, they have a regularly featured speaker by the name of Dragon Dronet. If you are unfamiliar with him, your loss. Take my word for it, the man has tons of experience and character. Helluva craftsman and demonstrator. Anyhoo, the event takes place February 18-20, 2011. Room rates are $99.95 per night at the Red Lion Inn, Pasco. The rooms are more than ideal for the veteran con-goer on a budget. They come with minifridges and microwaves!
