I'll be in Lake Geneva with Inkwell Ideas. Any other booters plan to attend?

I'll be there. I'm running events on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, but we're planning on leaving on Sunday this year due to the new house we're building eating up some finances.

Cyborg Commando Tournament Round 1 - Thursday 12:00 Noon
Cyborg Commando Tournament Round 2 - Friday 12:00 Noon
The Wailing Sore (D&D 5E) - Saturday 12:00 Noon
Fairy, Faerie, Quite Contrary (D&D 5E) - Saturday 6:00 PM

There is this tiny, outside chance I might actually be there.

My daughter & now boyfriend are doing a documentary for their video production class. They had planned on doing it about the history of D&D. I talked with them about narrowing the focus a bit, and said that doing it on Gary Con, and the homage to Gygax and the 10th anniversary would be a nice focus. Tons of old schoolers to interview, etc.

Told them I'd come along to assist and help with questions, crew grip, etc.

But, it's their decision, and the window is closing...

It would be a good opportunity. Many of the Old Guard accept walk-ups to their games, and there are several panels they all participate in.

Plus, they can see a Real Live Author™ who once sat on a panel with Patrick Rothfuss. (I wish I had a tenth of his sales.)

If either of you show up, stop by the Inkwell Ideas booth and say hi! And maybe we can get together at some point outside of dealer hall hours.

There's plenty of seats in all of my games. It's the first year my events haven't sold out within minutes of event registration opening.

Assuming I've read the schedule correctly, I have two conflicts for the Saturday evening, and I can't easily attend anything during Dealer hours

I understand; every game I wanted to play in was also schedule in conflict with the games I was running. I call it The GM's Lament.
