Who all is going? I am going to try and be there, need to request the time off. I am needing a place to stay, where should I go for a cheap hotel that is close? Plus I need a pick-up and drop off at the airport if I can make it.

    I'll be there. I'm staying at the LaQuinta because it's about $40 for up to 4 people. Not sure who I'm sharing my room with yet. Depends on who else is going from the Cincy contingent.

    Only a few more parties at ICHQ before the move downtown, right?

    This might help explain:

    The reason that ICOK has little in the way of a fixed date set way in advance is that too many people unconscious on the floor or couches or vomiting can leave a mess (and since everyone going drinks, there is no-one to clean up spew until afterward except Brian and Keebs). It is a drinking party, informal drinking contest party, and sometimes a mini-LAN played while drunk among other things-- as best as I can figure out from reading posts.

    1) Not everyone that is going drinks

    2) It's not nearly as vomitous and insane as John makes it sound. The last ICOK was pretty tame.

    3) ICOK does have a fixed date.

    4) Yes, this may be the last official Icrontic event at the current ICHQ

    K: An airport pickup is no problem :) IC Taxi Service in full effect.

    Save me basement space, pretty please. Pretty firm IN this time by, barring surprise funding miracles. You guys are gonna love GLBC's Oktoberfest this year - it. Is. Fantastic.

    As usual, driving in, so totally available for IC Taxi Service(TM).

    I recommend bringing an air mattress. It's pretty barren down there at present.

    //edit: Probably can only fit 2 air mattresses total, FYI (maaaybe 3). If anyone else is bringing one it better have 2 people on it as well. My cots are pretty banged up; not sure if they'll be available.

    Most likely in, but possibly not until Saturday. I'm guessing the majority of happenings and goings-on would be on Friday?

    From past experience, this is a primarily Saturday evening event.

    Very tempted, but medical reasons leave me with no way to drive safely or legally, and no way to fly while having or recovering from complete hip replacement surgery (Oct. 3 and later for at least three weeks), and for medical reasons cannot drink alcohol-- so I know I would be a party- pooper also.

    So, regrets and have a blast.

    What are the dates? I'm guessing Oct 28-30. If so, I'm in. I would like to play a set for everyone if I can, I'll bring my equipment, but I just want to make sure that it's ok with the heads of household. Let me know what would be a good day and time that would work for everyone. Perhaps another round of my world-famous Captain Morgan French Toast would be appropriate? I will bring a warm sleeping bag this year, in case I end up passing out in the freezing garage again.

    We'll still have about 2 months of existence to celebrate by ICOK 2012. What Brian is referring to is that the next one will likely be at the new ICHQ in Detroit. :D

    Costume night is Saturday, as I recall. Most things will be Saturday I think because some people will work on Friday and not make it til late.

    Charity and I will be landing at DTW at 1:25pm Thursday, October 27 and renting a car if anyone else is getting there at the same time and needs a ride.

    Of course, take into consideration the time for getting checked bags and the car.

    Once I know more on my plans, I'll keep you posted. I'm hoping to come in Saturday for the costume party and see your lovely faces. I miss you all a lot, especially since I wasn't able to make it to EPIC. I may be bringing a guest. We'll see.
