Well, a bunch of us will be there. I'm running an SG2 game using GW
miniatures (the title of the scenario, if they keep the title, is
"Operation: Chapter Approved"). Whatever happens to the dealer's room,
it won't affect the games or the people attending. I'd say that this
could be a reasonable year to go. Next year will depend on what
happens THIS year.

WOTC isn't running the con. Technically a company called Andon is
running the con. Andon also runs Origins. However, Andon is owned by
WOTC. WOTC gave GenCon to Andon when WOTC bought out TSR. If WOTC
hadn't bailed out TSR last year, there wouldn't have been a 1997
GenCon, let alone a 1998 GenCon.
