FRAMINGCON reminder August 30th - Sept 1st / Game order ? / Help needed
- It's just two weeks until the next Framingcon and things are progressing
well. Jerry has once again volunteered to run his version of "Team Jeopardy"
for the Saturday night party game. I was not familiar with the concept, but
it worked out very well last time. I manned the grill for dinner on
Saturday last time and didn't blow up anything, but if anyone is willing to help
this time, I would appreciate it.
I have had a number of requests from out of state guests for sleeping
space, but there is still plenty of room for people to stay over. If you know
you are planning to crash here, please let me know as soon as you can so I
can book the best remaining space.
Regulars can skip this next part, but for those of you who have not
attended before, FRAMINGCON begins on Friday night at 7:30 and runs through
Sunday night around midnight (or a bit later). People are free to come all three
days, or drop by for a short visit. I have hundreds of games, a regulation
size pool table, and a home theater which is available for either
multi-player video games (such as BUZZ and Rock Band), or movies. I have over 6,000
DVD's and 1,500 TV box sets to choose from. On Saturday night, there will
be a cookout, and after dinner, the theater is reserved for a big party game
that everyone is encouraged to join in.
I have been running this event three to four times a year for 30 or so
As always this event is open to all members of Unity Games, MENSA, FRAGS,
SOG, Meetup, friends, friends of friends, and really, anyone who is seeing
FRAGS continues to meet every Thursday night at 7:30. Attendance is usually
around 12-15 people. Movie nights are on Tuesdays, where we usually screen
some cheesy B-grade horror or sci-fi films. Again, all are welcome.
In other news, I am trying to put a game order in this week with
CoolStuffinc. I am ordering the Lords of Waterdeep Expansion that is out on the
20th, and am hoping to get enough other games in the order to get over $100 for
free shipping. If anyone wants to get in on the order, please let me know
by this weekend.
Lastly, it's time to move the DVD's again, as the shelves are once again
packed too tight. This project is much easier with 2 people, and should take
about an hour. If anyone can help (maybe next Thursday before FRAGS) please
let me know.
That's if for now. One more reminder should follow next week.
I hope to see many of you soon.
