        Ok, bit dense on my part I'm sure, but don't they have a whole bunch of GD shows in the US? Or am I thinking of something else?

            Ah, I see. Don't really keep up on GW stuff.

            I know, probably get declared a heretic or something for that.

                  Hmmmm........a quandry has arisen. Roger is supposed to come back in February for 4 weeks. I can get great rates at a few hotels downtown in Chicago (work for a major hotel chain) and that would cut the cost of going there a great deal. If we wait untill July we could meet up in Chicago and go to the convention. But I'll have to wait untill July to see him. That's like FOREVER............what to do?

                      That all depends on $$. July is right smack dab in the middle of overtime season. I can bring home $1600.00 to $1700.00 every two weeks durring that time period (normally it's $700.00 to $800.00 after taxes and such). I need to keep that up to make sure my disability is high in Oct. when I get my other knee replaced and I need the $$ from the OT to buy furniture and a car that isn't from the dark ages. Roger's ticket's to LA and back are about $650.00 to $750.00 depending on time period. To get to and from Chicago will be about $300.00 per person. I'd want to take a couple of weeks off work to be with Roger.............not sure. I'll have to run it by him when he wakes up.

                        @GreyHorde: yes, 2010 was in Baltimore. 2011 will be in the windy city. mayhaps 2012 in LA?

                            its ridiculous that north america only has one GD considering how many are in europe alone. Seems they must not be as popular over there. Still the easiest to win though :cheeky:

                              I'd think about going to this if it wasn't so close to GenCon.
