First one was GenCon XI, at the University of Wisconsin - Parkside, in 1978.

My first was the last Parkside. That makes Mecca still the magical 'back in the day' place for me. It still felt like a small Con then. Flyers for events tacked up on bulletin boards, pegboard of event tickets. Sniff Sniff. :(
Those are great memories! Looking forward to my 38th Gen Con...I boycotted a year when they moved to Indy.

I used to live 45 min from Milwaukee, but I'd moved out of state by the time it moved to Indy. So it wasn't a big deal for me. The only thing I did was book a hotel in Indy a half year even before the last Milwaukee Con. Hotel space back then was as bad, maybe worse, than it is now in Indy.

1976 was my first GENCON IX... We did go in 1975 for 1/2 day but I honestly do not remember going. :(

Stayed with my grand parents in Madison, WI every summer.

This will be my 6th in a row.

not really sure, think it is close to 20 but not sure.  Started in 85, when it started in Milwaukee, went for 5 straight, the skipped a couple then it was hit and miss for a few years, would go to 2 then miss a year or two, then back again.  Been to 7 in Indy.

Housing is bad now. I even checked with your grandparents for this year. Booked. :) 

So has it been every year since 76 then?

We stay in the JW Marriott every year - VIG member.

No it was not every year since 1976, I joined the military and missed a lot of years due to service. I went ever year from 1975 - 1984 then from 1984 - 2004 I did attend GENCON 13 times, only missed out on GENCON when I was overseas in the military.

Thanks for serving. 

I've never been able to afford VIG, so it's into the housing scrum with all the rest. I treat it like a pre-con larp. My character goals are to get a good hotel room.
