I for one am looking forward to the move into downtown Lancaster. The Host is a wreck and the renovation/construction is moving at a glacial pace. Better not discuss the food which was almost non-existent and what they offered was horrible. I spoke with someone who actually tried breakfast in the restaurant and was disgusted by it. Thank goodness there is now the excellent Lancaster Brewing Company across the street.
The gaming was excellent. I was part of the Lard America group running "Too Fat Lardies" games and all our games were well attended. As you noted Richard Clarke one of the "lardies" came over from the UK for the show. He was impressed by the state of US tabletop gaming and had a great visit.
