    Default GenCon 08

    Ok who's going!?

    I am. Already got the page bookmarked so I can register early and get a better room. Got a special savings account all set up with $200 in it already.

    We will have to see about doing another party. I will look into it in Merlask's absence.

    Dates are Aug 14-17 and it is in Indy again (will be for 3 or 4 more years I think.)

    Also I will be driving from NC via VA, WV, KY and up from Louisville to the Con. Need a ride just let me know.

    Here's to hoping we see a better DDO presence at the next con.

    Count me in. I had too much fun this past time to miss out. Another party would be great.

    See you there.

    Is Gen-Con still going to be held in Indy? A friend mentioned to me that it was going to be moved back to Milwaukee. Curious if anyone has heard anything about this or not. Going to do my best to make it anyway, went for 10 years and now I've missed two! Joys of getting married I suppose.

    At this years Gencon I came as part of a duo. Next year it appears I'll be quadrupling that. Yeah ... me, three friends, and all the wives. Whether the idea holds until the signup is another story. But it was so much fun, everyone wants in on the party.

    I will plan on being to Gencon next year in some capacity.

    DDO, and fourth edition will be the reason I come back (and I will contact my old friends, the deadly sins, to see if they are coming too) so we can talk of the good ol' days.....

    Hope to see the DDO booth at gencon, with computers set up for playing!

    Sincerely,
    Shaamis is REBORN!

    Are you going to handle all the prep work this year and cover the cost. If that is the case we should set somthing up so we can send you some money. I dont want you to have to foot the entire cost like Merlask did at this years. Also if you need any help let us know. Alot of us would be willing to help out.

    Hey Kashka, if you ride in, I will bring my Indian and we will get a good ride in around the Indy area.

    Good way to get ready to save Arlos.

    I hope to see you there again.

    Details

    I didn't go this yr for financial reason and not sure I could pull enough funds out of my portable hole.

    How much is parking at/near Jillian's because I didn't know if it is/was considered event parking or not?

    Does Jillian's have a cover/enter fee?

    What, if any, other charges?

    Price range of drinks?

    Ok kiddies here is my plan. I am going to keep saving as planned and will wait to see if Turbine will do something for us this coming year (remember our Merlask is on the inside now, maybe she will pull something out of that wonderful hat of hers.) When we are 6 months out if I haven't heard anything I will start planning. For now keep it in mind and every month I will remind people how close we are...(for those that don't have my myspace page where I have a countdown going lol)

    As I said: I will be driving from NC...taking 77N, 64W, and 65N from Louisville. If you need a ride let me know. Also will be looking for roomate(s) as the hubby is refusing to go again this year (he's ashamed of his geek-ness...what a dork!)

    I will be there next year if I have to quit my job, shoot my will-be-by-then ex, and walk all the way standing on my.... well, you get the idea.

    Nobody lose track of those drink recipes - I intend to try them all. At least once.
