It's sad. I was never a big fan of Gettysburg as a Fall In location, but now it would work out better for me than anything HMGS (formerly East) wants to put on.

It's ironic that the poll is limited to conventions that have long gone on to that convention in the sky.
Like the MFCA exhibition in Chester. I remember being triggered by the same pipe tobacco smell in the parking lot. And a few others around Chester and Baltimore.
People are jonesing for cons that had merely changed venues.

Ahem. Moving on. It's becoming apparent that the surviving conventions that I attended are now extinct. The liability insurance alone will have killed them.
Yet none of them are listed in the poll. I was forced to vote "none of the above", where the Editor should have seen that and included those.

I agree. This seems a strange poll.

Am I wrong? There seems to be no way to check completed polls earlier than 21 October, but I thought we'd already done one earlier this fall dedicated to conventions and venues which are still--officially at least--going to resume some day.
