    Default Gathering For Buffs™ Gen Con 2020 (July 30 - Aug 2)

    Continuing my trend of being late getting this thread posted again this year.

    Gen Con badges went on sale a few weeks ago, and housing opened this past weekend.

    I continue to be burned out by their prices for badges, but there's still the Friday night Gathering for Buffs™! ...where we don' need no steenking badges.



    Time: Always Friday evening at 8 PM'ish, and going til they close up shop. Always come 'n go as you please so it can fit in with any other con stuff you have scheduled.

    Place: [TBD. Tentatively same place as last year.]

    I hear this may be a good year to hang with long-time attendees like Lessah and crew, and also hear Patrick from DDOcast will be there. I am still not sure if I can go, but hearing about peeps being there this year has been leaning toward yes.

    Last year's meetup went well I think as a social event, although we ran into a few snags on the biz planning bit (no fault of the venue). Not sure if Punch Bowl is an option this year.
    Have fun, and don't forget to gather for buffs!

    Thumbs up

    Sigh only if we could have Teleport spell in real life.

    I wish you have a great time there.

    How many people are expected at any one time? I live and work in Downtown Indy. I could assist in finding a good venue.
    Respect your home plane of existence. It is unique and cannot be replaced.

    We have averaged about 50, with larger gatherings (the more official and officially booked ones) getting about 100. We've had more, but I usually ballpark about 50. The main issues are cost, availability, and location. It is pretty easy to find a place that meets two of the three, but not all three.

    I could probably manage to be there again on a Friday, since it's within driving distance for us.

    Been keeping my eye on the Gen Con site. Still far enough away that they're not joining the 'cancel everything!' panic, but they're "monitoring the situation".
