2015 Icrontic Events
It's that time of year when we announce our schedule so folks can get yer plannin' done.
At the height of the Icrontic calendar in 2009, we had NINE all-weekend events in a single year. Well, @primesuspect and I aren't under-employed bachelors these days, so that's a bit much. Since moving to the Sullivan House, we've started doing impromptu Sunday afternoon/night events during the year as less stressful affairs, but we're often not very good about announcing them far enough in advance.
For 2015, we're taking the best of both worlds and making something better.
Every classic event that ever got a name returns for a total of NINE at ICHQ once more (plus our TWO away events), but only the core 4 (St Paddy, Expo, Oktoberfest, & New Years) will be all-weekend events at ICHQ. The rest will be reborn as official, scheduled-in-advanced Sunday shindigs.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.
I lied. We're adding a new weekend event: IC Commune Labor. One weekend in April, anyone who wants to come help work on the house, we're going to have projects lined up. The Sullivan House ain't done yet! We'd rather do 1 official one than keep asking all year. Also, this is the only non-BYOB event - drinks on us.
So that's a record TEN official events at ICHQ, including FIVE weekends.
