Wabbit Season - Convention Season - Bang!

The convention season in and around Baltimore is getting off to a slightly confusing start Memorial Day weekend with both Balticon, and GAD-con overlapping.

Balticon is mostly a Science Fiction convention, though it does have some gaming. GAD-con is a new convention mostly for Role Playing games and some board gaming.

It is nice to see a dedicated game convention in the area, however that overlap could be a killer for some fans of both Sci-fi and Games. Hopefully next year things don't get off to such a conflicting start to the local convention season.

Here is the notice that was posted elsewhere regarding Games and Dice Convention (GAD-con)

[White Marsh, MD] Games And Dice Convention Coming Soon!
Hi! I represent a new Tabletop Gaming Convention coming to Maryland May 24-26th! We are called Games And Dice Convention! (GAD-Con for short) a convention made for gamers by gamers!
