So apparently Gen Con never approved the Delta Green panel for this year, so Shane Ivey is trying to get an underground panel set up sometime probably Thursday or Saturday night. Dunno how that might effect the meet-up, since we made the trek mid meet-up last year.

Well, hopefully Shane can set a time and date before the actual convention; that'll let us plan accordingly. I assume if it's during the meet-up we'll do a mass trip again for those interested.

but I'm sure you have other quality traits


Sadly that is my one good trait. It is really a boat load of jerky qualities with a thin veneer of generosity. :->

Given the fun affect it had on Lord of the Peaks it was well worth it. Hope you had a chance to enjoy the rum as well. 

I do hope I can attend in 2016 and again play the role of the booze fairy godfather.

I can attest we greatly enjoyed the rum at Bill and Melissas New Years Eve party.  I'm not particularly fond of rum and I really enjoyed it, so thanks again!

We truly did!  You have amazing taste in fine potables, Tim.

My time off has finally been confirmed and I've gotten tickets to a few specific games plus a handful of generics.  I'm really excited for my first GenCon!  At least one friend and I are getting in some Delta Green for the first time for both of us, hoping it'll be a blast.  :)

DELTA GREEN UPDATE

So Gen Con has come through and there are now 2 DG panels, one Thursday night from 8-10 (SEM1578921) and one Saturday night from 6-8 (SEM1578922). Thursday is the Agent's Handbook panel and Saturday is the Case Officer's Workshop.

So this means we're probably going to have another march across the convention following the first part of the meet-up.

Last year we did a Q&A with Ross followed by Q&A with the rest of the RPPR cast then split up with most of the group going to the ArcDream panel. After the panel the group reassembled in the free gaming area of the JW Marriott (which was a great spot).

My assumption is that we'll end up with a similar flow of events this year.

I hope the banner shows up and if it does someone takes pictures.

Well the Delta Green event is in the Crowne Plaza again. That means we will literally have the same trip to make as we did last year.

So Ross will actually be with us this time around but I still volunteer to herd gamers if needed to get everybody to the right place.

I had fun with the crazy march last year. If you guys bring the banner Ross you need to bring pins and business cards or something for us to hand out as we march!
We got a lot of attention from that last year. Hell we even had armed escort for a good portion of it from some of the LARP players.  ;D
We can all be like, "yes listen to this stuff it's awesome".

Nervous overload. Still got too much stuff to finish making, not ready for this con at all! Way too happy to be able to have fun and hang out again though. :)

Just a few more days...a few more sleepless nights too.

Anyone interested in doing a pre-GenCon get together Wednesday night? We could make it nice and easy; meet at the Hyatt bar or the Embassy Suites bar.

If I make it down early enough Wednesday, I'm up for it.

Excellent. I say we plan for the Embassy, it's larger and on Wednesday probably won't be totally overrun yet... hmm, but it's also harder to time, especially for first timers.

Okay, current plan, meet up at the Hyatt Lobby bar. We can call it for six or seven in the evening, give people sometime to get in and get checked in their hotels.
