    We can try.

    Somebody may have access to the data somewhere. I know someone on staff used to say "we have it all saved", but there's been many registration systems over the years...

    Rich Franks I think - he's had to leave and come back...but I think he's attended all of them for some significant portion of the convention.

    Does going to GC 0 give you a mulligan for missing GC 1?

    I've only been coming since 6, but I know that someone has been to 0 but missed 1.

    The question is 1-12. If it was 0, 2-12 then yes. but it's not, is it.

    There were a few thin years where I was only an unregistered walk up for the weekend, once even just a Saturday. But I've been there since number one.

    I still think everyone who was at the memorial has a leg up on me.

    EDIT: I would think Stormberg has, IIRC.

    My wife and I have only been coming since Gary Con II, and we missed the last two years, but in our defense, two years ago, the water main broke under our driveway two days before we were supposed to leave for WI and last year my wife was undergoing treatment for cancer (she's in remission now). I had badges and hotel reservations for both years until we had to make the call each time to cancel.

    How and why...you're the one that was stuck in my head...I knew but I couldn't think of who it was....

    I think you're right about Paul as well....

    Hey man, you gotta find how hard the edges are some time so you know how far you can work the ref. ;-)

    David Kenzer & Mark Clover might have been to all of them too.

    I've been to all 12. I did leave on a thursday one year and came back saturday morning, having to deal with some plumbing issues. Another time I was only there friday - sunday. But I've been to 1-12.

    Grodog was not at 1.
    Dunno about Chris Clark, but it is likely.
    I think everyone else on that list have been to 1-12.

    Jason Cook was at 1-11, I believe, but will not be at 12.

    Other probables:
    Gene Drebenstedt
    James Lewis

    Other Possibles:
    Jason Azze
    Bryan Skowera

    Long Shots:
    Derek White

    I'm surprised about Dog missing 1. I'm pretty sure he was already coming out, back in the LGGC days.

    I was meaning to add Derek to the Maybe List. What makes you think he missed some?

    I too seem to recall Preacher missing one or two. But I have the memory of a goldfish...

    Yes, I met him at LGGC 3. I think like just got in the way for Gary Con 1.

    Well, I have a couple of connections with him outside of Gary Con (one of which is unrelated to gaming), so I'm always looking for him, and I want to say he missed a few. Seem to recall a couple of "wish I was with you guys" posts at some point.

    Another possible is Walt "Smokin'" Potts. He may have made all of them.

    Thalmin here on the boards may have been to all of them, as well.

    Mike Sefton is a possibility.

    Dave Wesley?

    Certainly Stephan Chenault has been to all of them, right?

    Jay Cook missed V or VI, too - and Bryan and Jason Azze were not at I.

    see...this is why my estimates end up low. Because every time people start naming names, somebody jumps in with a memory of ones those people have missed.
