edited 7 Jun in Events

The 15th Annual Expo is nearly upon us!

YOU NEED TO ADD THESE BEFORE CHECKOUT IF YOU WANT ANY OF THEM:

  1. Malty Pass (unlimited craft beer tap access)
  2. Bagel Pass (unlimited bagels Fri & Sat early AM)
  3. PEDAL PUB
  4. ROPES COURSE
  5. Beer Tasting
  6. Wine Tasting

I CANNOT ADD THOSE THINGS FOR YOU IF YOU FORGET.

**Get your tickets here! **

Please READ the event details on Eventbrite or on your head be it. Sales end 9AM ET on Tuesday June
11. Pedal pub & tastings are limited seating and first-come, first-serve.

Bowling!

It's a Bowling League theme, and that means we're selling limited edition Icrontic Bowling shirts. They will be dark blue + black with white embroidery. The Icrontic logo will be on the sleeve, and your name in deliciously tacky script on the opposite breast. The cost is $45 and the order form IS ONLINE NOW. THOSE sales will end separately in 2 weeks on June 6.

Saturday's marquee event will be bowling nearby at The Majestic. We'll play 2 games and grab food there too. It does have a full bar as well.

Featured Events

  • Pokemon GO walking adventure, led by @BobbyDigi
  • The return of High Ropes Adventure
  • "Overcooked" tournament (on Switch)
  • The return of Pedal Pub, now bigger and during prime time
  • A self-contained 4-hr D&D Dungeon Crawl, DM'd by @sazboom

Communism

Icrontic Communism is back!

Our ticket price this year is the standard $100, and there is a "+1" ticket for $165 to subsidize someone else's ticket.

  • There is a $35 Discount ticket if you need it.
  • You can choose the "Communism" option for a $5 bagel pass.
  • You can PM me for a $5 Communist Pedal Pub ticket (outside the Eventbrite workflow - I can't limit the ticket count correctly if I do it in there).
  • There are no Communist options for alcohol-related addons (pls) or the high ropes course ($$$).

Lastly, the "Sponsor" level ticket covers general admission, 1 subsidy, 1 month of hosting, and contributes to a modest event equipment upgrade.

Prizes

Lastly, don't forget to declare prizes you intend to bring. Thanks!

    Ryder ninja'd his post out of there but he messed up too. :p I've edited the OP to be SUPER CLEAR not to forget to checkout with the extras, because I seriously cannot add them after the fact as far as I can tell.

    FYI, I attempted to do reserved seating for the LAN this year but their tools don't work with the way we do ticketing. I may do it manually in a week or two.

    @Linc For the "Where are you staying" question. What should we put if it's a split between two places or we don't know yet?

    Other, or the majority-time option. It’s mostly curiosity & double-checking so folks don’t forget to tell me if they need lodging.

    I shrink the gap between when ticket sales begin & end each year not because I’m procrastinating but because this lull between the first 20 ticket sales and the other 30-40 sales gives me incredible anxiety every year without fail. Year 15 and I’m still on pins and needles waiting to see if we succeed again in hitting critical mass. It’s just brutal.

    Added the schedule from Eventbrite to the Icrontic calendar.

    Subject to change, of course. The schedule didn't have event duration, so I guessed for most of them. Feel free to edit or suggest changes.

    Next year, sell tickets from Feb 1 - Feb 28, that way you're not on pins and needles about attendance come late May. Anyone that wants to attend after the Feb 28 deadline can buy a ticket to the main event, but gets waitlisted for all outings and tastings, and no shirt or badge.

    Last year I sold 4 tickets the week of Expo to folks who didn't remember or couldn't plan that far ahead. Normally you'd deal with this by raising ticket prices closer to the event, but Icrontic Communism makes that useless.

    You're also forgetting the all-in-one thing we try to do with ticket sales means we need a full schedule and some events booked before we start selling tickets. That means we'd have to move the logo work up to like Thanksgiving.
