I never been to an East Con. But I have attended, Gen-Con, Origins and many regional conventions. Never have I been charged a fee for entering the dealer area. What is up with that?

POLL DESCRIPTION

unknown member writes:

We've all heard the anecdotes of former HMGS members who never bothered to renewed their membership for various reasons that I will not go into.

Come forward and tell us why?

If our organization is going to better serve its membership, we will need to hear from YOU! HMGS wants you back.

What do we need to do to bring you back?

Please limit responses to only former HMGS members. If you are inclined, please provide your actual name so we can lend some substance to this informal poll. This will be a relatively small sample as it is.

I do not intend this to stir up any animosity, simply state what it would take to bring you back to the HMGS.

Please share with your friends not on the TMP who may not see this and ask them to respond.

Also, where do you live?

Thank you in advance.

Poll set up by unknown member, based on this pre-poll discussion.
