I'm going to be in the greater Grand Rapids area from Jan. 18-23 and was wondering if there is anybody there that knows of some organized gaming going on.

If so, please drop me a GeekMail.

Thanks!

PT

I'm lazy; I can't be bothered to geekmail, and you should just turn on forum notifications anyway.

East Lansing is about 45 minutes to an hour from downtown GR and has a gaming group meeting at the FLGS at 1 p.m. on the 3rd Saturday, Jan. 20. http://lansingboardgamers.com/home/

I can't say for sure this far in advance, but I'm sure that we can work something out. We've got a fairly active group of geeks here - remind us of your impending arrival after the holidays and I'm sure that we can pull something together.

There is an outside chance that we'll have a big game day happening, but if we don't then I'm sure that we can get a smaller group together.

I'm sure Paul knows about the Lansing Boardgaming Group get togethers since he used to live on the west side of the Detroit metro area and has met the Lansing guys before.

He is asking probably asking about the GR possibilities since it would seem that he will be in the area having come down from the UP! I don't see him having the flexibility (or the understanding of his wife) to then drive over to the Lansing area.

Just a guess. No nastiness intended. He didn't state the fact that he would be in GR from out of town so you didn't know under what circumstances he would be operating under.

Hey Paul,

As Tony said, with some advance notice in January it shouldn't be hard for us to get together some people to game at least one of those days.

We often have friday night sessions about that time of the month, so you might even luck out and end up hitting that event as well.

It looks as if we have sold out our room block for the National Block Party. The rate I was quoted was $85.00. I will check and see if I can get an expansion of the room block. The tourneys are set and will have a short demo before the start.

Tourneys are Hammer of the Scots, Diplomacy, Game of Thrones, Commands & Colors: Ancients, Clash for a Continent, War of 1812 and Liberty. We will have con T-shirts, a vendor and F2F Gaming.

Preregister price is $25, $30 at the door and $10 for a one day entry...

http://www.ohiovalleygamers.org/nationalblockparty.html for more information....

Room Block Update

I went to the hotel and spoke with them. The hotel increased our block. However, you must call the hotel directly. Our original room block was really small, so there are rooms available.

Call 877-451-2595

Have a Merry Christmas!

This is not the thread you're looking for.

Seriously, what does a con in Ohio, have to do with gaming in Grand Rapids, Michigan?

Jason,

Sorry if I offended you, but we have a couple of guys that come down from Lansing and Grand Rapids. I just thought this was the board they followed.

No offense intended.....have a happy Holiday!
