DragonCon 2014
Several years previously, I've tried to hold meetups at DragonCon, and I practically never find anyone. There is really no reason to believe it'll be any different this time, but I'm posting this anyway, as a place for everyone to say if they're going and make plans, whether they will be thwarted or not. At the very least there is the awesome BOARD GAMING ROOM, a huge packed room containing a table heaped with hundreds of board games to check out, sufficient reason to attend the convention all by itself. Note, the time and place given is the registration line, this isn't a "normal" meetup. [more inside]

New England Vacation time!
My grandson and I will be traveling to the New England / Maine area August 17-22. I'd like to meet up with as many Mefites as we can during the week. This is kind of our last time together before he leaves to join the Army. I put Cambridge, MA in the location field,; this is not to rule out any surrounding communities or states. Built in limitation of the location algorithm, I am told, on good authority :)
