I'm not completely set on this, yet, but I am thinking about skipping the two megas, Hatfield McCoy (shh...don't tell Wendy) and Hampton Roads, and making a run to Charlotte and Raleigh over Labor Day weekend. I still need the final for HeadHardHat's Dragon series which was missing when I was there last year and all the new stuff in Charlotte is calling my name loudly.
If I do come down, I hope to convince sfcchaz (mostly a matter of it he's available) to come along. I'd also be a happy to meet up with any locals who need some / many / most of them. Finally, I'd love to attend or host an event again.
If not Labor Day weekend, it will be another time before long.
