We're closing on the numbers for a site for next year's NOVA, which is planned at present for a significantly increased size and capacity full on convention weekend covering Thursday PM --> Sunday PM.
There are options still out there, but right now we're looking at Labor Day weekend of next year, at this venue:
I'd love some input from the trolls about how manageable (or not) a Labor Day weekend vacation/trip to Washington, DC is. It provides some of the "better" rates, while pushing us a bit further away from Wargamescon and Gencon. The venue is located on the metro, and a brief free shuttle ride from Reagan National Airport. So brief, in fact, the hotels rooftop restaurant overlooks the airport on the other side of the Potomac on one side.
Working on my BFS reports still, so I'll have those up soon. As usual, "words" of commitment to attend from various trolls is also always welcome ... and always encouraging to us on the planning end ;)
