I was there the 1st cpl cons and loved it. I think Vegas is a good choice as it has a lot of things there to do no matter what.
For me, not attending more often has been $$, not working, helping daughter, health, the expense to go ( it all adds up, cant save what I don't have ) and several things happening around the same time. I wish the registration fees to come could extend alttlle more to pay, I'm afraid to buy so far ahead and then something might happen that I am not able to go and lose my $.
I loved it when it was about getting to meet the other GALS/PALS and was Gerry themed, as it's because of Gerry that I met you all as this site was created. I don't really know much of the charity aspect there and how it has affected the con. I think helping out the charities is important, but would love if I was able to go again for it to have something about Gerry.
I'm not sure this even helps, but wanted to share, as I would love to make it again. My daughter keeps asking to go to Vegas, maybe we can and I can just go to the con.
