Bolide was well-liked, but ran way long; I think it was as much a function of the players as the track.
It was good to reconnect with the various con-friends... for whatever reason, there are a fair number of people who, even though they're local, I see only there. Plus, of course, B.McD. and company from Toronto.
The lack of A/C this year (on the fritz) really sucked. I'm still recovering from what feels like heat exhaustion.
I've rolled Dominion: Alchemy into my magic spreadsheet now; it was less work than I feared it might be. Unlike the other expansions, it requires a cluster of cards to work, so I've set it up so that one can select how many alchemy cards to use. 4 seems to be a good number, and 6 is probably the maximum.
I hope my aikido schedule doesn't preclude me going in future years!
