I'd love to go, but I'm on a tight income (I live in Taxifornia) and can't afford these extraneous cross-country trips unless someone else wants to pick up the tab! ;-)

Maybe someday I'll move back to Texas and get half my income back, and then I'll attend as many as I can!

I can't attend as I'm in London. But I do feel that one of the regular posters from here should attend. How much crowdfunding would it take to send you JLV?

Trying to escape from work to make it down from Cleveland for one day, almost entirely to see you guys and TFT!

Let's hope this happens. But we need a report!

On the plane and on my way! Thank you, WiFi in the sky! I just knocked out a few more emails on The Fantasy Trip project so that we can keep moving everything forward.

See some of you there! For those who cannot make it, we will try to post pics.

I know you SJG guys are traveling, but hoping to get a clarification sometime today or tomorrow: as far as you know, is the Thursday 6/14 1pm TFT preview game the only one scheduled?

That may be the only one on the schedule. We have an entire room for our use, though, so we will look into having the game ready for unscheduled demos. The largest obstacle will be manpower; our team is already stretched thin at the show.

Well, let me put it this way -- I'm pricing tickets to Langley AFB (Norfolk, VA) right now for a work trip in July, and I have to fly all night for about $800 just to get there, forget the hotel and meals. So, flights, three nights hotel and meals and incidentals (at the government rate) comes to $800 + $369 + 195 or about $1364 if the trip was next month. If I had to get there tonight, the plane ticket would probably be about double! That's one of the problems when you don't live close to a major airport here in Northern California!

No, I think your money would be better saved for your own copies of TFT! ;-) But thanks for the kind thoughts!
