On the other hand, I'm even *more* unimpressed with this con's organization than I was last year. I know it's student run, but that's no excuse for incompetence. The website still says that directions from the ferry for CT/New England attendees are "coming soon." As far as I can tell, it has said that for years. It has definitely said that since February of 2007... It still doesn't tell you where on the site the con is - the directions just dump you at the entrances to the campus - there isn't even an indication of which entrance (i.e. side of the campus) you need. Luckily, this year we already know where we're going, so since the con is structured exclusively for people who already have this information and don't actually need it, we'll be okay. I anticipate that the "con book" will again be a four color glossy photo album of the assorted guests with a photocopied list of activities that are not described anywhere and don't have directions on how to find them.
It's *really* badly run. But I get to spend two whole days with friends that I only see at Pennsic otherwise, Bob gets to play Battletech for hours, and I get to have lobster for dinner. That's worth putting up with some aggravation.
THAT part I'm really looking forward to.
