20-22 Sep 19, at the Four Points Sheraton in Morrisville, NC.

We had a ball in an awesome gaming room. The hotel rocks and there's great food, either in the hotel or within walking distance (including a Hooters).

Keep it mind when planning your gaming travels, please.

Never too early! Can't wait! :D

The conference room there is completely perfect. No columns, the lighting is just right. Brian got some great vendors in and the GMs turned out some awesome games.

Indeed ! A 'right sized' and 'right priced' venue.

Hooters – well, the wife demurred, so hotel fare for
us (this time…)

Overshot the driveway-could we convince them to put up balloons?-:^))

The room was fine for all purposes. No wedding parties next door:^))

What kind of numbers would you guess ?

Ed Mohrmann Supporting Member of TMP19 Oct 2018 4:58 a.m. PST

I don't know, coolyork. Attendance was clearly down,
but since Hurricane Florence had gone through (in VERY
destructive fashion) only a few days before, I'm
confident that had something to do with it.

Some of our in-state attendees were unable to come
because roads/communities/their homes were flooded or
storm-damaged.

But those who came saw the usual gamut of excellent
games (if you can find John Thomas8's collection of
hundreds of photo's, it is worthwhile perusing.)

Always a great con!

John Thomas8, I have not attended in several years. Last time I did, the dealer hall was combined with the gaming tables and the space just didn't work for us. I think this was at a Holiday Inn or something similar in Charlotte? How does your new venue compare? Perhaps you have a vendor packet or something similar that can be sent to me so that I can peruse the space? Send me a PM if you can.
