I usually go up and help a friend vend, this year was the first time I went as a participant. I found it to be an all out party (not my scene) and that was pretty much it.
Yeah, I'm not into the "frat party" atmosphere up there, either. My unit is a "dry" unit i.e. we don't drink at events. So I know what you mean about that not being your scene. We used to be billeted with the 1st SSF (there were never more than 4-6 of us that attended any given year -- not enough to get our own floor), so we got the brunt of the FIG "party" happening on our floor every year. But then again, rowdiness is historically accurate for the 1st SSF -- though their unit presence at the Battle of the Bulge is certainly not (as it was dissolved in December 1944)!
Conneaut is a bit of a haul for us, as we are in the extreme SE of Virginia. However, a unit that we often fall in with for WWII and Korea tacticals -- the 8th ID -- might attend as they have done that event in the past. If you need a POC for them I can provide it. I'm on their website as their unit medic, but they have since enlisted someone else to do the job permanently, as I don't attend all of their events. Thanks for the invite, though!
