Hotel room booked.  I'm hoping they do some special stuff for the 50th.

Just an FYI...

Badge Registration is coming up in a week or so for those who will need to go through the housing lottery.

So I'm going to my first GENCON ever.  Have been playing RM for many years.  Is there going to be any events for RM, SM, Harp etc?

There should be a handful based on previous years.  Hopefully some people here that are planning on running will speak up so you can look out for their events when registration gets close.

I will likely be running some RM games.  I missed last year (needed to put a new roof on my house and had too many other things going on), but ran six sessions each of the previous two years.  Hoping to run at least 6 sessions this year also, if time permits with other stuff that I'll have going on.

According to the newsletter ICE will be at Gencon this year! The first time in I'm not sure how long.
I hope they have a booth and are ready for the intensity of this con.

This changes my plans of not going this year.
But I will probably not be able to get there until Thursday night due to work and needing to make money...lol.
Unfortunately I will not actually be able to do anything until Friday morning.

Hopefully ICE will set up a meet and great somewhere. Which reminds me, does anyone who is going want to set up a lunch or dinner date?

I just got the email for the Order of the Iron Crown members. This is awesome! We'll have to query ICE to see if they want to have a meet and greet.

I responded to the poll about games and the booth.  I would love to do a meet and greet.

I'm booked and badged and excited to participate in some Rolemaster at GenCon this year.  This will only be my 2nd time attending the con, but I've been a Rolemaster fan for years.  Looking forward to playing (and possibly running) some RM!
