That's the most conventions I've done in one year, and that' all for this year. I made a decision to skip any events after Labor Day - I will not be at FenCon in Dallas, which is coming up Sept. 25-27.
If I travel out of state this fall, it will be for a 40th high school reunion in Massachusetts.
I doubt I will go to nearly that many conventions in 2016, but I have received an invite already, so I know there will probably be at least one.
