Is anyone going to DragonCon in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend?  ( http://www.dragoncon.org/ ) Tenebrae and I are taking our kids this year.  A couple of years ago, we met up with Victre and 38t, and last year someone spotted me wandering around in my Gaiscioch t-shirt (they yelled, but I didn't hear them). We will be in our Witch Hunter costumes, and our kids have gone all steampunk... heh heh...

Anyway, there is a Guild Wars/Guild Wars 2 Fan Meetup on Saturday at 11:30am in the Hilton Grand Salon E. It is right after the parade. We will still need to pick up our passes (unless we luck out and get to Atlanta and are able to check in to our hotel before 10:00pm), but we are going to make every effort to be there.

The Georgia Aquarium and Children's Museum are nearby and really awesome if you have never been. Emerald Rose should be there too. They are a local Irish band and I have seen them several times. If they are there and playing, they are well worth a visit.

 

I wish I was going this year. Have a great time!

2nd the notion that I wish I was going, though it will probably be a few more years before I make it back that way (went SDCC last year and going NYCC this year, SDCC next year =p). Went a couple of years ago and had a blast.

Have fun!

If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely.

We briefly considered going to WorldCon (which is in Texas on the same weekend this year), but decided that the kids wouldn't enjoy it nearly as much. WorldCon moves around every year, so we might try it next year when the kids are with their Dad (we swap holidays with him each year).
