Does anyone else think that GW changing from doing several Games Day events across the country to having just one Games Day is a really bad idea? Now instead of being able to go to Games Day with a mere $150, It would cost me closer to $500 and that is before I even get to the event. Way to eliminate an attendee Games Workshop.

Agreed. More gamesdays = better.
woah, woah, woah, where did you hear that? That is lame and a really bad idea. Games day chicago had Jerves Johnson, if I would have known then that they were cutting down the gamesdays, after cutting the tournament, I would have given him my 2 cents, or my two pounds (pun).
Oh and where is this one games day being held?

From BrassScorpion at DakkaDakkaGW's formal announcement regarding the 2010 single North American Games Day event in Baltimore, Maryland is now online here. The date is August 21. Tickets go on sale this month.
Here's a copy of the text:
Community and Events Games Day Gamesday 2010 Announcement 11/02 Gamesday 2010 Announcement
Over the last few years Games Workshop has endeavored to be more attentive to the needs and suggestions of you the individual hobbyist as well as the hobby community as a whole. Despite reports to the contrary, we do hear you, although we may not be able to react as quickly as many would like. We are always striving to put forth a better quality product, event or tournament and your input has driven many of these changes.
In the past we have had as many as five Games Days taking place over a calendar year across the continent and have scaled back since then to down to three. This was done to consolidate resources in an attempt to put forth an event that was "Epic" in scope and truly the culmination of the hobby experience in North America.
We have received input from hobbyists, clubs, and attending parents as well as from many parts of our own business on things that need to change or improve to make your Games Day experience a truly memorable one.
To achieve this goal we are redesigning the template for the Games Day experience and while we are keeping the time honored traditional bits that work as they are, we will be improving and updating many areas as well as adding new and exciting features. We have also made the difficult decision to only have one Games Day in 2010, which will be held in Baltimore on August 21, allowing us to focus our energy into one amazing event.
So please come and join us in Baltimore, Maryland on August 21st for North America's GAMES DAY 2010! Keep visiting the website for updates on events, guests, and how you can make a difference in your hobby!
Make sure you bring your armies with you to the most interactive GAMESDAY ever!
Tickets will be available online only starting November 27th 2009 for $25! We are limiting the number of tickets this year and they WILL NOT be available at the door so get yours NOW!
Well coming from Toronto, and being at the last games day, it completely sucked, it was so terrible, there was nothing much to do, they had a few displays which you looked at for a minute or so then moved on, and then they had speed painting, and terrain building tables which were swarmed with kids.
So GW deciding to have a single games day to me is a great idea, if there not gona put on an event worth while, then they shouldn't, they put no effort at all into GD toronto, and all it was for was to grab money from little kids who thought it would be good, i was there for less than an hour before i got bored.
Hopefully they start with this single event, and then later branch out to more event's so they can have something worth going to.
Wow this is odd.
I recall over a decade ago having this conversation but the reverse, when they were going to open up a lot of NA games days. I'm also from Toronto and back when I used to work at the shop, we had a great time, but yes the event has been in steady decline to the extent that I haven't attended the Toronto event in a few years now.
I'm skeptical that this one big event will somehow be epic enough for the trip. Luckily, unlike in my youth, I can afford the trip now ... still, I'll wait and hear about this one through the vines instead and then scratch my beardy beard in pondering about 2011.
