Stupidity of Convention Events

I got a mass emailing from GenCon about events for gamer's widows (read: Fluffy). They had a lot of fun things: karate, belly dancing, yoga, jewelery making. So, Fluffy and I tried to register. Except for one of them, every single event was filled upbefore they sent out the email. Every single one. Why did they even bother?

Fluffy isn't sure if she wants to go, mainly because she isn't really into gaming at all. She might be in a LARP, but she doesn't know. I was planning on doing the writing circuit again, though that makes me a wanna-be. On the other hand, one of the ladies from work read my story (WBM) and she really liked it. Said it had interesting characters and a good plot. So, that was promising.
