Expo 2013 Schedule!

LincLinc BardDetroit, MI Icrontian
Announcing the schedule for Expo Icrontic 2013. We have an incredibly full schedule. Events marked "Everyone" (red) we're requesting all participants attend. Obviously we're hoping for maximum participation in the TF2 tournaments as well.

The schedule is NOT FINAL. But... hopefully close.

http://expo.icrontic.com/grid

Tastings have additional fees & signup. I expect both to be amazing; they're both in their second run and got high praise last time.

Many thanks to all the folks who have stepped up to coordinate events.

If you haven't gotten your ticket yet, time to get on that.

    Somewhere in there I will be running games of Werewolf. If you haven't played before:

    1) You'll love it.

    2) I hope you're a good liar.

    Not sure if this is covered elsewhere yet, but PLEASE PLEASE do NOT bring your stuff in the basement until the all clear is given. Unless @Lincoln is providing a storage/staging space in the basement, all PC equipment should stay in your sleeping space, or other designated storage location until setup is finished and the all clear is given.

    Thank you, as always.

    Other notes:
    • If Valve screws us on the TF2 tourney Friday (like they do), we'll move directly to LoL & movie time, and shift TF2 back 2 hours so everyone has time to update their clients
    • Please do not be late Saturday for Duct Tape Challenge - it's a blast, and needs to start on time
    • Bring your t-shirt to the group photo :p

    I will provide designated storage space for LAN gear in the basement away from the main setup area (like the workshop room). DO NOT leave anything of value in your car during Expo. This ain't Warren.

    @Lincoln, please to add Vintage Scotch to the schedule.

    It's the featured event Friday @ midnight, just like last year. A second game could run concurrent to Civ5 (Thurs 9pm) as well if you want more than 1 session.

    Continuing on the above (re: valuables) Keep in mind you may have to park up to 3-4 blocks away in any direction. Parking is already full (street parking just like Warren) even when there is no event at ICHQ.

    https://maps.google.com/maps?q=4304+Avery+Street,+Detroit,+MI&hl=en&sll=45.00109,-86.270553&sspn=13.984,26.015625&oq=4304+Avery&t=v&hnear=4304+Avery+St,+Detroit,+Wayne,+Michigan+48208&z=17

    This is the location of ICHQ.. familiarize yourself with direction and adjacent streets if you are driving so that you can park effectively/efficiently.

    (Edited my previous statement and the quote re: leaving stuff in cars)

    I've put this at the start of Werewolf; everyone can join the game as they finish their scotch.

    Probably 1-2 blocks, hopefully. I've never seen Calumet a block west of us (across street to front) ever fill up unless there was a party nearby.

    Traffic laws: 15 feet from Yield signs, 10 feet from fire hydrants and crosswalks. We've marked these distances with orange stakes outside our house.

    Well at least we're going to get our exercise from lugging around our rigs from 2 blocks away.

    You can drop it off in front of the house, you just can't stay parked there.

    Okay, I see a bike tour listed, but I haven't seen any threads about it. Admittedly I haven't been on the forum more than maybe a combined hour the last two months, but searching turned up only the 2012 thread. Any more info on that?
  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian
    @midga Norm was just here last night and mentioned he was about to "get on that". :)

    Yay :D

    if this could somehow be planned, it would be the most spectacular thing ever. raul tells me that brian is a coffee connoisseur and i read in the hobbies section that he recommends chazzano as the best. blackhawk and i will definately be checking it out.

  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    We did that 2 years ago and Chazzano is now a good 15-20 min drive away from ICHQ.

    It was done and it WAS the most spectacular thing ever. Probably my 2nd favorite LAN extracurricular ever.
  • mertesnmertesn I am Bobby Miller Yukon, OK Icrontian
    I wasn't able to participate last time for some reason. I'd be in for it this year.

    Questions regarding event sign-ups:

    1. Are we to sign up using the calendar grid, or on the forum threads?

    2. If we said "in" on the forums, should we still sign up on the Grid?

    3. Similarly, I'm interested in the Cheese Tasting event, but I can't find a thread for it. What do?

    Thanks!
  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian

    @Bandrik On the individual event forum discussions. You don't need to actually sign up for things on Sched. "Cheese Tasting" is the public non-alcoholic code for wine tasting.
  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian
    I am closing the schedule now. Thanks to everyone who is running a session! We've never had a more packed or diverse schedule. http://expo.icrontic.com/grid/

    It's definitely not too late to sign up for sessions you want to attend tho. Gaming doesn't require pre-signup, but all the tastings definitely do so your hosts can prepare accordingly.

    Quick question! Do we call people by forum names or real names?

  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Both. It's extremely confusing for a while. :D
