    This may be a little bit early, but I'm curious. Who is planning on going to A-Kon this year? I couldn't make it the last two years, so this'd be the first time I'll be going.

    This will be the first year for a while I won't be there. Thank goodness. But then, the past couple years I've been there I've been sitting behind a table in the dealer's room, and haven't been getting much money out of the deal.

    If I do go though, I'll be happy to be able to get to the viewing rooms again. Being trapped behind a table isn't much fun, and I like the free anime samples.

    I'll be attending Akon and will be helping host a Vampire the Eternal Struggle CCG tournament. My play group will also be hosting a draft and possibly a storyline event as well during the convention.

    Dallas, Adam's Mark Hotel (or did they rename the hotel last year?), around the beginning of June.

    Yeah, I'm lazy, I don't spend the twenty seconds checking Google to be certain... >.>

    Ah yes, I remember someone sending me a notice about that a couple months ago, with all the details. I'll have to dig up that link again. Thanx!

    I'd really like to go, but I'm not sure my schedule will allow for it.

    The con is at the Sheraton in downtown Dallas, for those who are interested. It's near the Pearl station on the red/blue lines for DART. All day pass is $3 on the DART, which is less than fees for parking downtown and the gas it'll take you to drive there and back (and look for parking).

    I'm sure my gaming buddy that moved back to Texas is both aware and attending this Con. I, on the other hand, will most likely attend next year seeing as how i may have moved to Texas by this time. Any links on said Con someone would share?

    Well, remember this thread: Who was your first love, and when?

    If everything goes well, I'll be moving to Texas within the next 12 months(probably, more like 6 mos) to be with my first love. Actually, we were each others first love. Very cool.

    This move would also put me within 2 hours from family. Also, very cool.

    Kinda living a fantasy right now, so bear with me. It was simply a matter of the right person/wrong time. Now things have changed, now its right person/right time.

    I should write a book on this. The story is worthy of a movie.

    I would love to be there myself, but without a regular job (still), my finances won't allow it. Sheesh, hain't been to one in a while, really miss the crowds and games.
