Announcing Expo 2017!

edited 7 May in Events

All event information is in the Eventbrite registration. Tickets will be on sale May 8 - June 8. All signups & extra event costs are in the registration this year EXCEPT the catered buffets, which will be collected on site. Don't forget to invite a friend!

2017 Featured Events:

  • Pedal Pub (downtown tour via group bar/bike thing - unconfirmed but likely)
  • Detroit Dart Club (organized Nerf battles - prepare to sweat)
  • Escape The Room

New & different in 2017:

  • A "Malty Pass" giving the bearer 3 days of Michigan beer access via a new ICHQ tap system.
  • A "Bagel Pass" giving the bearer 2 days of morning bagels / spread / coffee.
  • Boardgaming & prize table will be in the great room; tastings in the carriage house.

All ICHQ lodging info is in the 2017 Events & Accommodations discussion.

See also: 2017 travel plans & hotel sharing.

Because Expo communism is in full effect, doing everything (no alcohol) in Pauper mode is only $45. Or, at maximum Hero/Prince mode (with all alcohol), $599. Everything in between is up to you. Keep in mind we don't normally pay for everything up front so if it seems more than usual, that's probably why. It's a pretty average-cost year.

Spoilers: the placeholder sketch is nowhere near the real logo. (I used the direction we didn't go.)

Hmm? What are The Helium Wars, Year 1 you ask? Well, it's going to be an interesting 6 weeks. Plenty of time to fill in some... details. :ninja:

    Is the fact that the Escape Room tickets are unavailable a bug, or did all the spots really sell out already?

    //edit: Okay, now I'm getting those errors on every additional side event option I attempt to add to my registration, and the Malty Pass isn't even visible any longer. What's going on?

    //edit2: Also, it appears that registration can't be completed without selecting at least one of the on-site catered meals. @Linc can you add a "none of them" option here if the field has to be mandatory?

  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian

    I fixed the availability issue on the extras - I fundamentally misunderstood part of it. I can fix your ticket, @GHoosdum, just let me know what you were going for.

    Thank you! I haven't completed it yet, due to the issue I discovered in my above edit2.

  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian

    Fixed the catering question.

    FYI: I removed "Pauper" and "Prince" options for the extras because it conflicted with counting available quantities. It also probably needlessly complicated things. If you would like a non-alcohol extra but cannot afford it, please just private message me after completing your ticket purchase.

    Thanks again! I'm registered. Woohoo!

    Will the pedal thingy be stopping at bars, or just riding around?

    It may make brief stops for resting, but not at bars. It's a pleasant morning ride around Detroit, possibly with a tour guide if we find one, and you can bring a drink if you want. I was thinking maybe a couple pitchers of mimosas?

    I did not sign up for the $15 bike tour since I'll be bringing my own bike. What was the $15 supposed to cover?

  • JokkeJokke Bergen, Norway Icrontian

    Would love to be there.. Need to check work schedule.
