CabinCon II


  • PC

    So starting to think about CabinCon II. I was thinking about a weekend in October. I would like to get three full days of gaming around a weekend - logistics maybe we can only do two. So throwing out some options:

    Locations: Schaumberg, IL, or Milwaukee, WI. If these locations don’t work we can revisit the Cabin situation at Carlyle.

    Dates: October 10th-13th, or October 24th-27th (Thursday - Sunday) Thursday would be travel day after Dwarf closes up shop, and Sunday we would need to be on the road home by 10:00am. That gives us two full days of gaming (Friday and Saturday)

    Please discuss. If we can lock down date and location, then we can discuss logistics following.

    so do you want 3 full days of gaming, or do you want to leave by 10am on sunday ? b’cuz those 2 things are kinda mutually exclusive…

    Are you aiming for October/November every year?

    I know that is what we tried to work out last year then things went south

    What weekend? 4-6 or 19-21 are most likely best. The 10-11 is parent teacher conferences and a 4 day weekend for my kids.

    Well that is why he said logistics might mean only 2.

    Well I’m down with whatever you guys can swing in terms of time off or away from the shop. The only request is the day we depart i would like to be on the road home early. I can do 2, or 3 full days its really up to the group what we want to do.

    I think i can make the 4-6 or 19-21 option in October work, but will double check.

    Can someone text or give Jeff a call to see if he wants in on this action?

    I was thinking about trying to make CabinCon, a October event, I’m not opposed to November. The only reason why i moved away from it is with the holiday season starting to come upon us in November if there is any chance for CabinCon to succeed it would have to happen in the first weekend of November. Otherwise i fear the odds of it not coming together goes way up.

    i’m cool with doing the 3 day thing and playing 'til midnight on Sunday - as long as we’re doing the carlyle option…

    on the dates, you should check to make sure what weekend carlyle is having their bigass (and i do mean BIG ass) halloween event. the campground and cabins get MAXXED out that weekend and often the weekend before, as thousands of kids descend into the towns largest event. its a madhouse
    ( my lil’ bro and his inlaws are fond of camping there - dragging a cooler around as they walk with their minis thru each campsite… several of which get massively decorated for the occasion. its kinda cool, but driving/parking is a nightmare - and the roads wind up lined with vehicles for ruddy MILES )

    Yes, we’ve been there before for that. Same thing at my dad’s timeshare in Missouri.

    For me, option 3 is best followed by option 1, then option 5.
