    Sure, we could do it more than once a year. But they could run hot reality shows back-to-back, too, and you've seen the result of that (LCS3, anyone?). The truth is, dilution happens.

    I think once a year is plenty enough. It's expensive, tough to plan, and quite frankly, getting me to go on a personal trip more than once a year, after all the travel I do work-wise, ain't gonna happen.

    Many good points, Phat. However, as San Francisco is my current hometown, I have to pipe up and say that it's not so crowded anymore. It's a bit of a ghost town compared to the Big Dotcom Boom of 1999-2002.

    Also, excellent public transportation is available everywhere you turn. As a bonus, I will be more than happy to act as a tour guide if San Francisco is ever selected as a FORTcon location.

    Hoping I can make it to Vegas next year.... Totoro

    Too much of a good thing turns into a bad thing Everything in moderation - even FORT.

    My suggestion is mini-cons. Throw out a suggestion and have a central meeting place.
    I agree...you don't even have to call it that. For instance, I wouldn't mind getting up a hen party with ome of the FORT folks who've expressed an interest in going to Cedar Point, or hell, a few of us ladies have even BS'ed about Vegas...but the official thing should probably be once a year. By the way, John, maybe next time you could put out a hint and those who are able might volunteer some spare change!

    I've got vacation plans to Niagara in the spring...but if Fortcon were to be in the Fall, I'd probably be able to manage it!

    Twice a year could be dangerous. Livers need recovery time ya know.

    This could be a neat idea! How about a "local" FORT "happy Hour" instead of a conference. Then all you cash could be spend on booze!

    For any of you that can't wait until next year for Vegas, a few dozen of The Amazing Race alumni will be there to celebrate the premiere of show #6. We'd love to meet y'all to shoot the breeze about the show.The racers love getting together to compare notes as a lot of us have become fast friends. I'll let you all know the specifics soon if there's interest.
