No it doesn't. Look I am not trying to pick sides or get in to internet arguments. I am just trying to point out another point of view. I don't have the information, clearly. But I wonder how many NON GG members attend their event and pay that $90?? I am guessing, yes just guessing that the vast majority of attendees are members. IF, that is the case, then it is $45 for a three day show. Not a bad value. I agree with everyone here, Rhinebeck is the perfect venue. I hate to see GG move it. But you have to wonder why the attendance has been down every year. It isn't just the date change. The attendance was starting to decline before the change. Maybe a new venue will add something to it? Maybe it will be the death of the event? Time will tell. But it is what it is. I will go to the Big E and enjoy it as much as I can. I would also attend the new event in Rhinebeck. I love the idea of going back there.
