On November 8th, I'm planning to take a day-trip to the "FALL-IN" historical miniatures convention in Lancaster. If anyone is interested in joining me, let me know and we can confab about pre-registering.
Downside of Pre-registering: if you have to pay the whole weekend rate, which runs to about $45. I think the one-day visitor rate is less expensive, but you can't do it ahead of time.
Upside of Pre-registering: you can be sure of getting into the game event you want to do, and you avoid the long registration line (can save you up to an hour in some cases).
I've had fun at all the game events I've gone to in the past, and the shopping for miniatures opportunities are pretty cool, there's a large dealer hall.
Let me know if anyone's interested.
