Nevermind I'm not a player so I guess I can't come.

Nice knowing you all.

This refers to anyone who wishes to stay *offsite* at a hotel, campground, friend's house, or similar.  There isn't room for an unlimited number of these but we could probably get away with 5 or even close to 10 for some days.

Some people prefer to sleep offsite as a personal preference.  We've had family groups come who want to be able to escape the house when needed.  If you have any questions about this option we can help.

The best thing you can do if you are at all interested in the event is to post in this topic with your current intentions and then come back to post again if/when your plans change.  The more you share, the better this topic goes.  Sharing your plans on Discord, Twitch, or Text Message is fine too, but the organizers will really appreciate seeing direct posts in this topic.

I'm 100% in, however I may be getting a new job between now and the meet date so if that changes my ability to show up I will try to update as soon as I know I can't make it

^ This guy gets it. Everyone be like this guy.

Wow, cool. I haven't made any plans yet but I may end up flying in early to visit Youse the weekend before the event. It's something he's mentioned before but I haven't asked him yet...If I did that, would you possibly be able to pick me up on the way? He lives within a few miles of I-95 somewhere between Philadelphia and Baltimore.

Who ARE you?  :kappa:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As for me, it looks as though I'm out for this year. Sorry guys.  :-|  You'll have to be my amazing Kart triumph next year. Going to Nashville from August 1st-11th; had it planned since New Years.

BUT.....should some catastrophic event happen that prevents me from going, and a spot happens to be open, I'll go to VA instead. Put me down for 2.5%.  :v
Will be glad to see most of the folks at AGDQ 2019, and VA 2019.

I was hoping this year would be in June again or even mid-July. Unfortunate that it intersects with a different vacation.  :p

This means MGAY needs to take my spot at Gold's for the week. I'm sure Frankie would have fun either way hahaha
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the way. THIS photo is more recent (2017) and BETTER. Look at my long hair; I'm a homeless savage.  :v

Guess I'll wait my turn since it would be wiff, wife, and the wiffster again. Should we be able to fit in under the cap we'd be 99% in.

Is there any sort of deadline for people to sign up so that those of us that are bringing family can sign up?

I think we should make one! *angry mob forms*

I believe the Hutch family has done something where they stayed at a hotel nearby and visited during convenient hours, using advanced parenting techniques like kidshuffling to Make Things Easier.  Not sure if you're interested in doing that but you probably wouldn't count against the Twenty Five Man Capacity if you wanted to go with that route, so you could commit earlier.

Hell yeah! I might be putting up noob weight, but I'm totally down to go.

Might as well pick up Mgay along the way also

Maybe if I weren't 5 hours out of the way...

Anyway, I'm in. My work/living situation is (hopefully) subject to change in the next few months, so my travel plans are up in the air for now. I'll make it happen one way or another, though.

Wedding August 18th, highly doubtful I'd get the blessing to get a week off that close to a stressful event for Amber. Not to mention I already have Thurs-Tues off for wedding weekend as vacation days as well.

RIP VA streak 2007-2017

I'm interested, but I need people to travel with for it to happen. With Jimbo pretty much out and no idea on Edeen yet, perhaps I could tag along with Thingy or Ng?

I'll keep that in mind. So far I don't have any concrete travel plans. I've basically never done the same plan twice to travel to the event so it's hard to know exactly what will happen yet.

Got my time off approved this morning, so I’m 100% in.

Also, I can drive people from Dulles or Reagan as I live pretty close to both. Up 2-3 people if I take my car, up to 4, maybe 5, if I take my parents minivan like last year. I’d rather take my car since going to my parents would be like 1.5 hour round trip, but if we need it that’s an option.

Oh, and sorry Ng but I think you’re gonna lose your Switch bet  :LOL:

Note: due to high demand in recent years, we're asking that initial signups be for players only.  If there is still room at the house available as of a couple months before the meet, we'll be open to having interested spouses/children take spots at that time.

Deadline is June 1st.

I'm not exactly sure about whether the non-players list works like a waiting list or a first-come-first-served after June 1st or a "Ngamer invites someone he likes".

So far we've seen interest expressed for:

Wiff's wife & wiffster
Thingy's wife
Nash's wife

As far as I can tell from the topic and spreadsheet, those are all the non-players that have already expressed interest.  There are still some potential attendees who haven't responded yet but Ng, Jones, and Stinson have been hitting the phone lines hard in the last couple weeks to get a clear picture.

That's correct, if you're an Eliter/Karter interested in attending you should post about it NOW (well, within the next two weeks), even if you're not 100% sure you'd be able to get off work or get plane tickets or whatnot.  Otherwise on June 1st the remaining open spots at the house are going to be awarded to the three non-players who have expressed interest (the 3 wives mentioned above).
