I'd say come for as much as you can afford. I'm gonna be there Wednesday to Sunday.
Are you gonna help out at Grogheads Central Command or just sightsee and play games?

The latter (although it's a given I'll stop by GCC if I'm able to make it). 




Got the vacation I wanted!  I'll be there late Friday night and all day Sat. and Sun.  You wanna room with me Martok?

I'm definitely interested, yes!  I think you & I need to have a phone conversation.

I'd love to go but as always, WBC takes precedence. If we ever become independently wealthy I'll be going to all the Cons.

The GrogHeads Central Command event matrix for Origins is officially submitted! As soon as I hear that it's approved, I'll share here.
Sneak peek? Aerial dogfights, panzer shootouts, WWIII, and a revolutionary insurgency :)
See you in June in Columbus!

It'll depend on 1) traffic and 2) what time I leave that morning.  It's nice of you to offer to buy though.  Must be that scientist money you make ;)
