I haven't been to a convention since the eighties...but Renn Faires are another matter. We usually get to Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania every year. My fiance's former roommate is a performer at VA, MD and one of the North Carolina faires. I've been going to Maryland since I was in elementary school. They open on a weekday for school field trips once or twice every season.
As luck would have it, the VA Faire opened between my home and my business. Lots of the Rennies who didn't have anything to do during the week would hang out at my store and blow the little bit of money they made on dice and role playing games. I was really sorry to see them close the Faire. The new one isn't nearly as ambitious, but it's still fun.
