I am seriously thinking about going to Gencon 2016.  Does anyone else here plan to attend?

Hope you have a fantastic time, airboy

Financial difficulties aside (I'm still trying to make it work so I can attend Origins this year), it would be difficult for me to make it to GenCon since it's usually around Syttende Mai weekend, and I always attend the festivities in my mom's hometown.

Usually you get PanzerDE and Cyrano at GenCon, along with random others. A bunch of us hit Origins because we run wargames events there

I will not be there - my summer and my limited funds are already committed elsewhere :(

Decided to cancel my hotel reservation and badge.  I was out of the country during event registration and could not sign up for what I wanted.

Instead, I'm going to both Southern Fried Game Expo this weekend in Atlanta and Liberty Con in Chattanooga, Tennessee in July.

We should sticky a list of who at Grogheads is going to what events so we can try to meet up.
