With our first official meeting last year, anybody have suggestions as to where we will meet after Gen Con 2017???
For those who don't know, Gen Con Rear Guard (we started the group, so we named it ourselves!) is a group of folks that get together the Sunday night after the Con is over to tell tall tales, share some food, Con stories, and possibly do some gaming into the night.
This year we will be meeting in room 312 at the JW Marriott 4:30pm until??
Our group usually games in the Hyatt on Sunday night, but this will be the first year in a long time that I leave on Sunday due to the solar eclipse on Monday.
I'm looking forward to meeting up again this year. The pizza place...Giorgio's Pizza I think... was great but the wait was overly long. Wasn't there another restaurant that was proposed but was full/booked so we went to Giorgio's instead?
Or maybe it was Giordano's. I don't remember.
Yeah.. it was Giordano's... I agree that the wait was too long. Perhaps this year we can just sit at a hotel lobby, order delivery and game on... lol!
When you mean the Sunday after the con is over, do you mean the last day of the con (08/20) or Sunday of the following week (08/27)? Either way, I'd love to enlist in the Rear Guard if I can! Sunday always tends to be the most depressing day of the con for me anyways and this might be a good way to cope with it.
Awesome! Sounds good, man. I'll keep an eye (or two) glued to this thread in case there are any major updates. Thanks for the quick reply!
Any interest in implementing a Forward Guard regiment? ;)
I swear, I have been trying to stay the Sunday after Gen-Con for at least a decade, and not a single year have I been able to manage it. This year I finally decided to go all-in and arrive as early as possible since I once again could not stay late, though! Monday Before Gen-Con, here I come!
Maybe hammer out the details of this year's Rear Guard meeting?
I will be there Wed, sometime around 3-4pm (or earlier). So I would be good with the Forward Guard any time after that.
I live in town, so may be able to swing meeting with the forward or rear guard. Also have Wednesday off :)
Isn't the proper tactical name the "vanguard"? ;)
I'll be around for post-GenCon activities. However pre-GenCon, I probably won't be available until after 6pm on Wednesday 16th (airport arrival, hotel check-in and stuff).
I'll be in town the Friday before GenCon and leaving the Monday after so I'm down for a Forward Guard event and the Rear Guard.
Watching this space to see what develops...
Tuesday at Scotty's! We'll be there anyway!
