Miss Manners says that it's tacky to schedule BGG.con 18xx games before Labor Day. People are so prone to having their plans change...

All dates pulled from last year's first postings of said events. Probably off here and there with annual variation, but I bet it will be pretty close again this year.

Nope, that won't help. Well, Yeah, you can, but that won't help.

I'm going to try and make it out for the Beer & Chili. It sounds like a great chance to meet with people. Last year work-schedule-wise it didn't pan out, maybe this year the proverbial cards will line up for me.

It's really awesome that your group has that event, it sounds like a really fun time!

Re: BGG.CON 2013 Pre-Announcement

I guess I wasn't clear enough that my question was tongue-in-cheek. I am a firm supporter of wristbands and I thought last year's wristband thread explosion was very silly.

I think for everyone post about the wristbands/bringing printed confirmation threads, about 3 more are people trying to be funny making fun of those people.
