I was planning on getting there and now other people's travel plans have torpedoed that idea. 2018 it is!

If it weren't for your location on the other side of the planet, I'd swing by and get you on the way, GK!

I'm going this year!

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

No plans to attend Gen Con this year, but I'm strongly considering going to PAX Unplugged in November.

If all continues to go well, I'll be there this year also! Looking forward to seeing you again, Wooly! Delwa, I'm sorry to hear that you won't be able to make it this year. I really enjoyed meeting you at the 2015 GenCon!

Speaking of authors going, I found out the other day my friend and author Beth Cato will be there, doing the Author's Symposium. This is particularly cool for me, because despite the fact that we've been chatting online for years -- long before she even tried to take up writing as a profession -- we've never actually met. It'll be cool to finally meet her.

Is there a Candlekeep Presents this year? I haven't heard anything and it's not listed in the Events on the GenCon site.

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

I downloaded the spreadsheet and searched for "Candlekeep" on it.

I do the spreadsheet to narrow down to merely a bunch of choices, then play with timeframes to work everything in.

...And it also let me search for my friend Beth's name; she wasn't kidding when she said she had a full schedule. They've got her in several of the Writers' Symposium events.

I have to admit, the Wishlist on the site is pretty nice too, you can sort it by the event's time/date to see what's blocked out.

I've not tried it... I download the spreadsheet so I can first remove all the stuff that requires prior experience, then I can go thru and flag everything that looks even remotely interesting, then I can start paring that list down and looking for what will fit into what open time slot. So I wind up looking at dozens of events, and then whittle that down to something manageable.

I'll be there. My dad decided he's not participating in this year's seminar. He's in for a long wait. If only I could encourage him to read or get into some other activity while he waits.

My buddy CallMeGene has, I believe, attended the D20 Burlesque, which was scheduled at the same time, the last couple of years. Obviously, that's not the only potential activity, but from what I hear, it's a fun one.

He's not into that type of stuff. He doesn't care to watch women in such a manner. A car auction, though, might catch his attention.

I would like to, but I have no one to go with, and I am already going to another con later this year. I can't afford both.

First time I went to GENCON I didn't go with anyone, but I knew people from online. The Candlekeepers now do an informal get-together organised by SteelGandalf and everyone is super friendly. Take a chance one day.

Me and CallMeGene go together, though we generally split up as soon as we're through the doors -- he's more into minis gaming than I, and I'm more into the RPG stuff than he is. (He's also far more sociable than I)

This year, I'm looking forward to meeting the author Beth Cato at GenCon -- she and I have been online friends since long before she decided to take up writing, but we've never met in the flesh. So meeting up with her is going to be cool.

I've also met a lot of Candlekeep folks there, either at that bar where I was introduced to pineapple cider (drinking a bottle right now!) or at the Candlekeep seminar. Last year, I geeked out when I found out Mike Schley was sitting right behind me, and proved my fanhood to him by whipping out my tablet to show that his map of the Realms was the lock screen wallpaper.

As it happens, I will be attending Get Con 2017 after all. I'll post my schedule as soon as it's nailed down. Hope to see many of you there!
