Hi Northeast BGG'ers!

I have organized another all-day open gaming event for 6/21/2014 (Saturday), at the Old School House Pub & Restaurant on 17 School Street, Hudson, MA 01749.

Open gaming starts at 11AM and runs until midnight. Anyone of game-playing age interested in playing board games is welcome.

The parking lot attached to the building is small, but they also own the parking lot directly across the street. Additionally, street parking in Hudson is free and there are municipal lots just a few blocks away.

I have rented out one of their function rooms upstairs and have set an entry fee of $5 to cover the cost of the rental. Given that we packed the room during the Q1/TableTop Day Quarterly, I have rented the large room for us. I do not have a final seat count yet, but it should be 100+. That is a lot of potential simultaneous gaming happening and should be a nice hold-over until the next Unity Games Day.

You can check out the fun that was had at the last Quarterly here.

The pub serves food and drinks. People will need to walk downstairs to the bar to place orders. Their menu is posted on their web site: http://oldschoolhousepubandrestaurant.com I have eaten there several times now and the food is excellent.

Alternatively, downtown Hudson is host to several great restaurants and eateries. There is also a McDonalds around the corner from the pub if that is your thing.

You guys can use this forum thread to ask any questions and discuss games to bring/play at the Quarterly.

If you prefer using Meetup, we have an event page there: All-Day Quarterly (2014Q2)

Hope to see you guys there!

I vote for 2nd Saturday as that's usually the most common Saturday I can't get my game on!

Well, with other people renting the venue and the event being once a quarter, sometimes the third Saturday cannot be helped.

But, I am more aware of Le Marshalate thanks to Steph! I will probably be picking Q3's date tomorrow, so we will see what happens.

Another vote for NOT the 3rd Saturday. I want to come up one of these times, but I always have a conflict on that day.

it's also not just Le Marshalate, bob's day is also "usually" the 3rd Saturday of the month over in Peabody (his also has no cover charge as his local library let's him have a decent sized room for free) and he's been doing it at least 10 years. Ie. those two groups aren't going to change their dates to not conflict with you, it's the new group that's got to give if they want to have a larger pool to draw from Even if you are only holding it once every 3 months instead of monthly

personally I'm also already got got a group a game with 1st and last Saturday of each month but if you do choose (or not choose since as you indicate the venue may not give you much of a choice) no biggie, smaller group than LeMarshalate and bob's day

I never implied for anyone to change their dates.

sorry, I thought you had back when we met at one of your game days 2 years ago I think. Please forgive me though, I forget your name, I think it begin with "R"? (Randy??)

in any case have you thought maybe about a Sunday? I've had decent turn outs when I've hosted on random Sunday's in the past
