Word is that the venue this year is not very good.

I think this is the first year the guys I know have been to Fredericksburg and are comparing to past venues.

The con was going to move it to NJ in 2018, but that fell through and I think it will be going back to the Lancaster Host next year.

The location is very spacious with lots of room for gaming.
But it is very noisy.  Not crazy about the Host, but a reasonable alternative.
HMGS would like to get both the New Englanders, and the Southerners to come, so Lancaster is now the location.
Wouldn't surprise me if this changes again.

Mr. Nizz's Blog gives a good rundown on Historicon.
It was really good.
