I've been pretty choosey about my 150th events, and been very happy with the result. If there's a history-heavy side of the hobby event that looks like it will deliver as promised, I'll go to it. If the GAC event turns out to be the only game in town, I'll go to it. With eyes wide open. I was at the 125th, and I've done the mega-events all through the years when they were where the hobby culture was primarily. I know what to expect and what to pin my hopes on. I saw some of it at Manassas last year: the long lines of marching men, the tearing of sailcloth vollies. That's what I want to see again.
