Use this as you have been for a general planning thread on GenCon. Lots of talk about events and such below, but let's also turn our mind toward facilities. Specifically space to game after the show floor closes.
Closing in on about a month until GenCon. I hope you're all as excited as I am.
In years past we've tried to smash a ton of people into as big a room as we could find. More often than not it meant moving TVs and furniture, pushing beds vertically up against a wall, and carting in folding tables only to squat around them on beverage coolers like animals.
Through sheer force of will (and months of elaborate guilt applied by phone and in person) I've secured us a conference room. 8-10 tables, maybe more. Chairs galore. And all in the hotel where many of us will be staying, Hilton Downtown Indianapolis during GenCon.
SirRockford is pitching in for 1 night, being Friday. The second night, Saturday, is being charged to my credit card tomorrow. Suffice to say, I'd sure love some help with that. So...
Would you like to contribute to a night of our $200/night conference room? Please DM me and I'll connect with you personally to help you make that happen. With luck we can get some extras from the hotel like beverage service and some snacky treats. Or perhaps a ready reserve of cash with which to bribe them when we go over our curfew. Either or.
Update 7/28: We've got the rooms covered, plus like $20 funny money.
