Will be the 9th for me - missed only 1 year in 10. USed to live in Indiana, now in Charlotte.

For those long-timers, a side question what is your badge number, mine is under #8700. I think the lowest I have seen was like #956 a couple years back.

It will be year 27 for me. I always go to run games and did 15 years working the dealers hall. This year I'm free of that. FREE!

BTW you get in free for running enough games, which is cool.

No dealer hall booth? Awww. (I know the freedom feeling though. Didn't do 15 years, but I know it :)

Two years at Parkside, 3 in Milwaukee, then I just popped in for a single day at Indy in 2015. Very excited to be able to catch the whole thing this year.

My first was in 1991 and I've been attending each year so that makes it... 26 years this week?

My first was 1979 in Parkside. I loved it there. Great campus. A lot of fun. 
In two years I'll celebrate my 40th Gencon in a row.

Grew up in WI, so it was easier.  Glad Gygax lived in the great state of WI. 
For those who don't know,  Gencon stands for Lake GENeva, wisCONsin where Gary was. 

Meeting Gary that first year is still a good memory. Times have changed but I still love it.

I'm sure we've kicked this around in a prior Forum, but how many Gencon's
have you folks attended? For me, this year is 33, and I haven't missed one yet.
Still as hyped as any other year.
This will be my fifth and my husbands 25th. We had to miss three only and only going for one day this year but starting next year we will be back to going for the whole time. Having a new family caused it and moving to Texas. BUT we are back in the midwest and the kids are a bit older now~!
