Con was awesome. Cut for length )

Overall, I had an amazing time, and the kids and H enjoyed themselves too. I regret not going to the last few conventions. My expectation had been that since I would be unable to participate in most of the official program, it wouldn't be worth the expense and hassle. What I didn't appreciate was (1) how much stuff actually happens outside of the official program, giving lots of puzzle and game time on Thursday and Friday, and late Saturday night; (2) how much of the stuff on Shabbat can be done in one's head; (3) how much I miss these people.

I was quite touched by how many people seemed genuinely concerned that I should be able to participate as much as possible within the laws of Shabbat, and expressed their pleasure that I was present even when I couldn't participate fully. Thanks to everyone who made us feel so welcome!

I'm going to try to figure out how to get to Seattle next July, and the whole family is very excited about Providence in 2011.

The one thing that I would do differently next time is try, beforehand, to assemble an Extravaganza team of "Power walkers who are willing to get a late start" --- that is, not "Runners" (because we won't have a chance to win anyway) but also not "Strollers" (because we want to move efficiently through the puzzles).

So: Kudos with a Bang to Arcs, Pfire, and QED for running a great con and to WILLz and Fraz and all the people who created such amazing puzzles and games.
