mirth, did you ever make it to a Fredericksburg Historicon?

I did not, but the reports from my friends who did make it were worse than Lancaster. You know it was bad if HMGS opted to return to the Host.

What's worse than Lancaster in July? Fredericksburg in July.

I never imagined staying at the Host.

I always stayed at the Courtyard just down the road.  Breakfast was great and they had booze on the veranda.

The new place is nice enough, but not really set up for a thing like Historicon.  I know why they left Fredericksburg, but I think it was the best of the bunch.

Huh. Missed your post.  I liked it. Mind you the weather was ghastly, but that would have required me to be outdoors.  Liked being that close to the battlefields.

I'm friends with several folks who have been to both locations for Historicon. None of them were happy with the Fredericksburg venue.

I was at the Host in 2018. There was a lot of construction still going on and many of the game areas were in spaces with bare drywall, unfinished floors, etc. The upside is that there was no flooding during the con which is a win for the Host.


I'd go back to Lancaster to see Historicon in the new venue.
