BOGA Weekend Gaming Retreat
March 19th - 21st, 2010
40+ Hours of Gaming hosted at Camp Carl in Ravenna, Ohio


The accomodations will be in a modern and comfortable lodge which has heat & A/C. If you're thinking rustic cabin in the woods, that's the wrong idea. This place is more like a hotel. More details on lodging below.

Non-gamer family members and kids are welcome to attend. The camp has a gymnasium, game room (foosball, pool table, ping-pong, etc), and many outdoor activities available (sports fields, sand volleyball, high ropes course, climbing tower, etc). Not to mention a camp fire each evening!

You don't need to be a member of BOGA to attend this retreat. Anyone who enjoys games is welcome!

UPDATE: All rooms are now filled! There are a couple of bunk beds still available in the Bunk Room. For anyone interested in Saturday-Only attendance, the cost will be $30 per person, and that includes lunch and dinner on Saturday.

ROOMS:
We will be staying in a building called the "Adult Retreat Center" or ARC for short. It has six standard rooms, two suites, and a bunk room. These rooms are described below. There are also cabins available if there are enough people to fill them. They are described below as well. The prices shown are per room and include lodging for both nights and use of most of the camp facilities (stuff like the climbing tower and paintball will cost extra).

-Standard Room ($80): There are six standard rooms located on the main level. Each room has one single and one double bed, dressers, and a full private bathroom.

-Suite ($100-$120): There is one large suite and one small suite located on the main level. The small suite has a bedroom with one double bed and a dresser, a small lounge area with a sleeper sofa, and a full private bathroom. The large suite has a bedroom with one double bed and a dresser, a second bedroom with a bunkbed with a lower double bed and a pull-out trundle, a small lounge area with a sleeper sofa, and a full private bathroom.
-Bunk Room ($175): There is one Bunk Room located on the lower level. The Bunk Room contains six bunk beads (sleeps 12 people).
-Large Cabins ($300): The large cabins each contain nine bunk beds (sleeps 18 people) and have a bathroom with a toilet, two sinks, and a shower. These are available to any person or group who wants to be responsible for the full $300 cost per cabin (up to three). I won't be renting them out bed by bed. The large cabins are right next door to the ARC.

In addition, the main and lower levels of the ARC both have a lounge area that will be used for open gaming. The upper level has a kitchenette (fridge, stove, and sink).

We will also have a large meeting room (seats 200 people) full of tables available for gaming 24 hours. This area is not attached to any sleeping quarters, so gaming can go on all night without bothering anyone.

Please make your request by commenting on this GeekList item.

I will keep track of who is in each room below:
-Standard Room 1: Todd Rooks
-Standard Room 2: $Bill & Wife
-Standard Room 3: Michael Miler, $Erin O'Malley
-Standard Room 4: Brendan + ?
-Standard Room 5: Ben Eckman, Leon Staufer
-Standard Room 6: Bob, Ron
-Large Suite: John Morgan & Family
-Small Suite: Tyler Hudak + 3
-Bunk Room: Grant, Ryan, Trent, Jer, Richie, & Greg
-Large Cabin #1: The Mortensen's group (total # TBD)
$=Down payment still needed.

FOOD:
Food will be provided by the camp. Each person will need to pay $26.00 in addition to the room cost, and this covers pizza on Friday evening, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. Update: Vegetarian and Vegan options will be available. Please let me know if you want one.

EXAMPLES:
With two people staying in a Standard Room, that would be $40 each. Adding in food makes each person's cost for the whole weekend only $63.25!

With a family of 4 staying in a Standard room, that would be an $80 room cost plus food for four. That means a whole weekend of fun for your family costs you only $173!

DISCLAIMER(10/12/09): I want to add that in the unlikely event that not all of the rooms in the first building fill up, or if someone cancels at the last minute and refuses to pay, the price for the filled rooms will increase a little to make up this difference. I am organizing this event because I think it will be a great time, but BOGA has no funds (what with membership being free) and I don’t intend to eat the extra cost. However, I am confident all the rooms will fill up with no problem and I think we are all trustworthy people.

PLEASE NOTE THAT COMMENTING HERE DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANYTHING, AS I AM ALSO RECEIVING REQUESTS IN OTHER WAYS, AND HAVE SEVERAL CONSIDERATIONS TO KEEP IN MIND. YOUR ROOM WILL BE GUARANTEED ONCE YOUR NAME IS IN A SLOT AND YOU HAVE GIVEN ME A DOWN PAYMENT OF 50% OF THE ROOM COST, OR $20 IF SIGNING UP FOR A SINGLE SPOT.

EDIT(11/1/09): Room #4 assigned to Lee.
EDIT(12/7/09): Added Small Suite and Cabin to list of rooms, added vegetarian meal info.
EDIT(12/11/09): Added Ben/Leon & Brendan, removed Lee.
EDIT(1/13/10): Added notice that the ARC is full and info for "walk-ons", updated room descriptions, added description of small cabin, noted Brendan as down payment made, moved Tyler's group to the small suite, updated Grant's roommates, added Jer, Richie, and Greg to Room #2, added Bob and Ron to room #6, removed note about creating a list of people interested in a cabin, changed pic to the aerial view with building labels.
EDIT(1/26/10): Changed Small Cabin to Large Cabin (they became available from the camp again), put the Mortensen's group in the Large Cabin, but the groups in rooms 1 and 2 together in the Bunk Room, made rooms 1 and 2 empty again. Removed notice about ARC being full.
EDIT(2/7/10): All rooms now full. Added Todd to room #1 and Bill to room #2.
EDIT(2/8/10): Added note for cost of Sat. only, plus pic of Standard Room. Removed downpayment requirement for room #6 (paid by Ron). Changed food cost to $26 per person due to Camp Carl's updated 2010 food pricing. Added Vegan to note about Vegetarian options.
