Not going this year.  Celebrating my 20th anniversary  instead.  Actually it's our 21st, but we cancelled our trip last year because the government contract I work on got caught in a contracting issue and I was out of work for 6 weeks.  Back on track this year and ready to go.

I'll be back at GenCon next year, unless I hit NTRPG Con or GaryCon instead.

Not really that interested in going to GenCon again. It's gotten way too crowded for my tastes. I may try to get over to GaryCon someday.

However, my sons really like GenCon so I may be back. Not this year though.

Not doing GenCon until I can afford to be there as a vendor. Definitely going to try to get to GaryCon as soon as possible!

With the shift from gaming con to geek culture con, the only attraction there is the auction.
And there are equally well done auctions at all cons that Tim Kask and Frank Menzter attend. (North TX, Gary, and Gamehole)

I am with Alex, I'll attend if I can go as a vendor and only if I determine that that is the best use of those dollars. If NorthTX, Origins, Gary or Gamehole Con are an equal or better return on my investment, I will defer to them instead.

Until either Indy solves their hotel issues or GenCon moves to Vegas, I don't expect to attend.
