RECON 2017 - May 4th thru 7th

New Venue
Park Inn by Radisson
3011 Maingate Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34747

The new venue is a winner congrats to the BOD. Huge well lit room for the dealers and miniature games. Separate rooms for the Path Finder Society, role players and naval games and extra space for pickup games not on the PEL.

Food service right in the convention area, breakfast, lunch and dinner that turned into a bar after dinner, I found food reasonably priced and good for convention food, canned soda was a bit over priced $3.00 per.


This pic gives you and idea of how large the room is despite high ceilings
the lighting was great and the sound level was good even with my hearing
I could hear all the players in my games.
