I know of Fednon, but flight and hotel expenses are much lower when I've gone to England, plus the costs at Fedcon are pretty high, if I remember correctly. Also, I guess I'm just more comfortable going to England since you can ask anyone anything and they'll understand you. No such luck when I was in Germany some years ago. Most important though, my friend who has gone with me all of these times is not a Trekkie, so it's been a natural choice to choose Showmasters.
Out of curioisty, which moderators make these sarcastic, crass and pointless responses? Most responses to questions I see are helpful and respectful to the one asking them.
