Now that I've got your attention ... has anyone heard how the pre-registration is going for this year's Pennsic 40? Is this truly going to be an "XL"-sized war because of the round number, or is the stagnant economy (gasoline prices, etc.) going to keep the increase in attendance down to a minor blip?
I already know a few people who are not going to Pennsic 40 for various reasons -- lack of paid leave time, no job, desire to travel somewhere else for a change, etc. So I'm just wondering whether the notion that "Pennsics ending in 5 or 0 are always really big" is going to hold up this time around.
