I'm bumping this again since Magfest X just got announced. It's at the Gaylord National (which is insane, it's sooo nice). I'd highly recommend preregistering now and booking a room. I had such an amazing time last year. I can't more highly recommend this con.

Definitely hope I can make it, I'll have to figure a few things out. At least Temp Sound Solutions is playing for my sons birthday, so at least I'll be getting my game tune fix in some form if I can't make it.

I live in the area, and I went to Magfest last year, but could they pick a more expensive place to do this? Parking was a major issue last year, so they decided to do it in an extremely tow happy and expensive part of area, plus Fort Washington is nowhere near any cheap eats. Its a very high end and expensive area, very inaccessible by public transit. The people who put this think together don't think about things like this.

Did you goto the early MAG's when it was in Charlottesville or Alexandria? Parking was cheap then but it was also 1/5th the size.

I was taken aback by the choice of venue also. The Gaylord (oh, the JOKES!!!) is fancy pants for sure, but the space allows MAG to be open 24 hours. I have no idea how MAGFest got the contract..."Yeah, 3000 plus nerds are gonna trash your place and make a lot of racket for 4 days, were do I sign?". Must be a slow time for conventions.

As for money, standard con going rules apply: room/ride share and bring a cooler full of eats (or in my case, beer).
