31776Re: [Unity_Games] Re: UG on Facebook
- Feb 2, 2011Speaking of summer sessions, I know that in Illinois (where I lived for the
past 6 years) public schools have to make their facilities available for
public use when the school isn't using them (because they are publicly
funded and all). This is probably true for Massachusetts schools as well.
In Illinois the groups that use them usually just have to pay for a building
rep to open/lock up the school and oversee the event and sometimes pay a
fairly reasonable rental/electricity use fee as well as follow school rules
(no smoking, drinking, or real guns on the premises--foam guns, probably
okay). If you are interested it would probably be possible to rent a public
school's gym or cafeteria and tables for a summer session somewhere near the
Boston area (or even better near Worcester!) for a reasonable amount. Just
an idea since UG 17 was so awesome!
