OctoCon Oct 18th in Calgary!

Post  ScottRadom on Fri Aug 08, 2008 12:51 pm

Alright, so I booked a room today. It's a big hospitality suite so we can sleep a bunch comfortably.

So far Carson and I are going but I stongly urge anyone remotely intersted to try and make time for this event. Warhammer road trips are legendary, Rob Kuster puts on incredible events, and the hotel is very nice.

This is a drinking event (not the tournament). If you don't like putting up with drunks, I can't reccomend you attend. If you have been known to sip a little of the good stuff from time to time you best come along and get organized.

This is always an awesome time, and there's room for at least a couple more people.

I would really, really, really like to leave at a good time (noonish) on Oct 17th (The friday). Any objections Carson?

I'm taking Beasts (of course). I can show players how to lose like a man! I'm toying with the idea of playing the White Dwarf, Hordes of Chaos list one more time before the new Warriors book comes out.

I did a search and found the army lists were 2200 points, and it seemes to be "Hall of Heroes" style tourny. They did a terrible job of this in Regina. Very poorly run and favoured shooting armies, so I'm looking forward to this.

Rob Kuster (The Grey Knight dude for Calgary) always does a bang up job for this. The highlights usually have nothing to do with the event though. Good times!

Scott, how many people can sleep in this suite? It looks like 3 from Moose Jaw are going, so I guess we should start to figure out how we're getting there. Who's driving? What vehicles are we taking? How much is the room for everyone? When do entries have to be in?

By the way, I'm a pretty handy guy to have around when there's cold drinks!

Okay, sorry for not getting back to you earlier Don.

The room has one King and one sofa bed. Nominally room for 4. Carson and Myself are for sure's. I will hold a spot for Kieran if he's coming and needs a bed.

It will sleep more if people aren't too picky and don't mind a sleeping bag or whatever. It's a big room with a table for 12 (Probably handy for drinkin').

Who else want to come? Time to cast things in stone. Register immediately as Rob Kusters events tend to sell out lately.

I have booked a room (Queen and sofa bed) and have registered the 3 Moose Jaw fellows. Rob mentioned registering right away as the spots are filling up fast. The rooms at the hotel are filling up also.

There should be more than enough vehicles and enough sleeping space. That means that there should be no excuses as to why anyone isn't coming.

We have room for one guy (Regina guy, maybe?) to come with us. So let me know and we'll try to make ya' fit.

Eric, all we have to do is finalize transportation and it shouldn't be a problem to dovetail you into the operation at all.

Yes he's usually pretty good, unless he's on the road (he's a salesman). I would try pestering him again.

Well he finally replied and said there are no spots left and I am on the list. He never replied to clarify, so I guess I am coming? scratch

I don't know. It's the awesome room! My cell # is -306-270-4152. We can arrange to be in the lobby when you guys show up (It's where the bar is!).

If he said there were no spots, but you were on the list he meant the waiting list. As in if someone drops out, you can take their spot. There have been a few dropouts and replacements already going on for the 40K side.
