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
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.
