Marche Du Nain Rouge 2017
St. Paddy's & Marche Du Nain Rouge
23-26 March — 10th Annual #ICSP
Boardgame & beer weekend with a costumed march thru Detroit on Sunday in the early afternoon. Bright colors (especially red) and ridiculous costumes are appreciated - we're trying to scare the Nain Rouge out of the city to start spring! To participate in the march, do not plan to leave the event before 5pm Sunday (as in, book your flight well after that).
More on the Marche du Nain Rouge
More about staying at the house
Claim sleeping space in this discussion and either way let us know when you'll be in town. I have Thu/Fri & Mon off work.
I wanna see some upped costume games this year! After attending a small Mardi Gras parade last week I have raised expectations.
In so hard. I'll refine dates later, but I've got the time off. Do want attic space & cot plz.
In, no sleeping space necessary.
Come on tax return...found flights from TLH -> DTW round trip for $385 which is cheap out of Tally; return would be on Monday ($250 cheaper to return on the following Monday instead of Sunday)
Sunday is a drinking day. You wanna stay til Monday.
If I can make it, it works out for my class schedule as well, since the return flight would have me back at TLH around 1230 and class that day is at 2
renewing my passport this week!
You best step up
Too much jeans.
I would have been nippin without the jeans. Never nip.
Also, tentatively in, probably gonna crash on the couch like usual if I make it.
Welp, I will not be able to make it, seeing as how this happens the week after Spring Break and my Cisco CCNA class is kicking my ass without me taking a weekend off to have fun.
This sucks. A lot. Especially after tonight and the stupid shit I had to endure.
Maybe EXPO (though I want to get completely shitcanned with y'all) or maybe another year. I hate everything and just wanted a week(end) away.
@sazboom and I will most likely be around at least one of the days -- we'll sleep out in the country
Good opportunity to pull out my new nun habit that I made. You know, besides casual Fridays.
In! Gonna need a spot to pass out on.
Damn it of course everyone is going to make this event! Sadly I have 15 dogs to walk because of Spring Break.
@Thrax and I will be there Flight in Wed-Sun
Staying with my parents, no sleeping space needed, Can't wait to see you guys
Probably going to have to miss this year's ICSP
Between Jackie moving out here the week of ICSP, and now having to travel home to Indiana tomorrow for my Grandmother's funeral, I really don't think it's going to happen.
If I can find a way to be there for a day or two I'll see what I can do. Just the time off thing and being tight on money has me in a tough spot right now. It's been a rough couple of weeks.
Goddam that video gives me feels. The early days of feuding with Perry in fighting games, an effing minikeg of Bell's Hopslam (seriously!), @SpencerForHire , and vintage ICHQ in Warren. Thanks for digging that up!
Awww... damn, the memories.
Is this thread the appropriate location for airport pickup/dropoff?

BTW Evonne and Mark will need pass out spots. Arrivals seem to be the 24th and 25th. Scrubs.
ON A COSTUME NOTE. If anyone wants to dress up as a Voyageur, you are welcome to join my Land Canoe Krewe. Crappy instruments, shitty french, and shenanigans are promised. (well, if you have a crappy instrument, bring it! I only have so many. Like...uh...none.)
