Not sure if this is good news or bad news, but next year Gen Con is a little later than usual and the Moto GP is a week early. Attendance for Gen Con was 36,000 this year, and the Moto GP is around 60,000. I know it's super early but thought I would give everyone a heads up. Hotels might be a little harder to come by next year. Also, the Saturday night before the race they close some streets and motorcycles and huge crowds are everywhere downtown. Should be interesting.

Hey, we dominated Indy a couple of years ago when they scheduled a Colts game the same weekend. We will do it again.

First it was Gamers vs. Jocks, and the Jocks got scared and ran.

Now it's Gamers vs. Bikers. This should be interesting. arrrh

Looking forward to when the Bikers encounter the GenCon Zombie Horde. zombie

For anyone who registers early and goes for hotels via the Gencon housing via the passkey system. They announced that Gencon has its block of hotel rooms reserved for next year. So my advice is to have 1 person in a group get a badge early and reserve a hotel room when they open up the Gencon housing block.

As for closing streets/extra crowd - well shouldn't you be playing games rather than walking the streets of downtown? Actually, I was wondering what would happen if the NFL schedules an Indy Colts preseason game the same weekend. Now that would be fun.
