Can you give us a flavour of it, i.e. how many attended, what kinds of games were played, what was the overall atmos like, and were there (m)any folks there from out of state etc.? I'm guessing it's fairly small and cosy, less than 100 people?

Try numbers more like just over 600 (though the final numbers aren't in as far as I know).

The first year was 125 in the American Legion in Lake Geneva. It now takes up the entire Geneva Ridge hotel and convention...and that it is getting loud and crowded.

I'll post more as I get my writeups done...

Wow, even more impressive. So like, is that the hotal and convention centre where GenCon is held?

Look forward to it. Btw, the only thing I know about Gary Indiana is from a tv prog here in the UK about ten years ago, which showed that following the loss of some key industries it had become very run-down. Has the holding of GaryCon there helped any? And wasn't Michael Jackson from there?

I think Jim assumed you were trolling rather than ignorant of the association. ;D
