Depending on my con schedule I should be able to join up, I think it’s looking like it’ll be a done deal, so hopefully I’ll see you guys then :)
So exciting to see so many people connecting from the club! I think it's going to be a fantastic event. Don't forget to use the link to get the group rate!

In the event that I can not afford to stay at the hotel, would it just be cool if I took the train and meet up a couple days instead? Just lost my job right now and my only source of income is vendoring at shows, probably won’t pay the bills :P

Either way, you’re probably gonna see me, I only live like an hour away anyways haha.

You can always room share with me, I plan on getting the hotel room if that helps

It's official, we are booked for arrival Thursday & departure Sunday. Hope to also secure some cheap flights but worst case will drive to the adventure!

Thought I'd repost the link to the Holiday Inn for those discounted reservations:

http://www.hiskokie.com/cartridge

Our 'block' guarantees us 20 rooms at that rate with any additional beyond that being subject to room availability, so I wouldn't wait to book if you can avoid it. Hard cutoff for that rate is June 26th.

Hey guys!

I'm planning on coming to this. Will likely bring some modded consoles with me as well for other club members to try out and play on. Might have some for trade/purchase as well. I can also bring a PVM with me if people want.

I'll likely just be driving there. No idea when I'll arrive yet either.

I see the event is coming together quite nicely. I will be throwing $10 per paycheck I get starting from next paycheck til the event or whenever it ends, hopefully we can get the ball rolling. I'm possibly not going to have a stable job by the time the event rolls around, so I'll just be doing transit everyday and just going home every night. Weekend pass for the train is only $10, it's a steal :P

I will also have quite a bit of games to trade and/or purchase, as I will also be looking for games to maybe purchase myself. Probably won't get much kind of like MGC since there is going to be a swap meet around the area a week before this event, so that'll also kill my wallet lol.

So everyone is just going to meet up at the hotel? Or would someone be willing to pick me up and drop me off from Union Station everyday Thursday - Sunday? Either or I'll try to find a way to be at a meet up spot when I can lol.
