Yeah I've heard maneuvering around all the other days wasn't bad, so maybe these #'s are a tad skewed if it was only Saturday. EVERY day was packed at C3.
Either way I would settle for a move to Vegas if that's what it took. Cheap flights, cheap hotels, easy to get around, actual stuff to do around the con centers there, and it's much more "open" to everyone in the country, not just West Coasters.
That or move it to Chicago. They can accomodate that, they're centrally located, and they actually have things going on downtown there.
