Already blocked the time off in my work calendar. Now I wait to see if Pride or some other big-enough-for-my-wife's-job event ends up the same weekend. I think that's the weekend they'll be doing Pride?

I would literally love to.

It's my 30th Wedding Anniversary next year - maybe I could persuade the wife to have a holiday in....where again?

Columbus, OH is not much of a garden spot, but there are plenty of other places in the US we're going to but you can easily get to and from Columbus while you're there

Like I said yesterday, I'll try. It depends on financials and I won't be entirely clear on that until early next year.  :-\

Anyone else planning on heading to Origins this Summer?

I could use another GM or two for the wargaming program.  Just PM me when you get a sec and I can talk details with you, but I have a very short timeline to get the finalized schedule in

Recognizing that it's still about 10 weeks away, it appears that I will be at Origins and likely Wednesday thru Sunday. When might a rough even calendar show up? And is there anything in particular you need a hand with?

waiting on our event to get approved!  (and we're not the only ones, either)

we've even submitted our table layout this year, which ought to help with the setup time, too

If I don't see anything by end of this week, I'm just going to post what we submitted, and figure it's likely to get approved en masse, since they've yet to turn down an event from us
