Dayton is close to me; NJ is far.  I still see a friend from the Ice
at Dayton most years.  He drives in from NJ for it (and I know he's
not alone).

I would certainly be one of the folks affected by VCFeast being held
in May (not that your other schedule conflicts aren't real and valid -
just speaking for myself, I already have too much going on in May,
every May, for a road trip to the East Coast).
