    DTOID MIDWEST NARP 2011 JUNE 11, 2011, TOLEDO, OHIO



    Last year, a thing happened. It was risky, it was a long shot, and people said it could never happen. But it did. And it was magnificent.

    This year, we aim to make it bigger, better, sexier, and even more fun. We had a lot of exposure at MAGFest this year, and a lot of interest has been expressed by people who missed out on or didn't know about last year.

    Things are still being planned, but the date is set for the weekend of June 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2011, in Toledo, Ohio.

    As was last year, this years NARP will be in my home. I've already figured about a way to fit more people, so I think we can do near 25 before we need to think about a hotel room. In the case of a hotel room, everyone will be pitching in a portion, so as not to exclude anyone or "price-out" anyone either. There is a fairly nice hotel less than 5 minutes from my house, so if this does indeed become a necessity it is not a problem. Since there is no Scott Pilgrim releasing this weekend, I propose that Friday evening we rent out the Lazer Tag arena just down the road from my house. Saturday, the plan is still (unless faced with mass objection) to hit Cedar Point again. We had a great time there even though it was busy and hot as balls, and if you've never been, it really is a thing you should do. Sunday is recovery/gaming/leaving day(though you are welcome to stay until Monday if you need/choose to).

    Oh yeah, and Mama Bloodspray already said she'd cook us another breakfast and dinner. She said it'd be fun.



    Ok, so INFORMATION. I don't want to put my phone number and address on the intertubes, so PM me or hit me on facebook for that, and I will get it to you as promptly as I can.

    IF YOU PLAN ON FLYING IN USE ONE OF THESE TWO AIRPORTS:

    Toledo Express Airport (TOL) [This is preferable for me, due to proximity, but it can be more expensive than Detroit. If you can, take Toledo. If not, I will still pick you up from Detroit, no worries.]

    Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) [This is a bit farther, but is sometimes cheaper. To avoid any confusion, this airport is sometimes listed as Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, but the airport code remains DTW]

    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or ask in this thread.

    I'll update those who are confirmed as they do so.



    IT BEGINS ANEW.

    My plans for June are already looking fucking nuts, but I will absolutely not miss this for the world. Last year's was easily one of the best weekends of my life, and I know this one will be even better.
    GET HYPE.

    I'm definitely planning on being there, but I'll need to wait until sometime post-PAX East to confirm.

    I dunno if I'll be up for actually going on all the rides if we go to Cedar Point (usually once I go there I'm good for like a few years, lol), but I am down for hanging out with all of you no matter what So I'll be there.

    Fuck it, just put me down as confirmed regardless. I'll have the gas money even if I have to counterfeit it myself.

    Flights are looking to be about $400 for me. Oof.

    Edit: Flying into DTW is about $255, though. Still a bit too expensive.

    Double edit: Wait now it's showing $165. I'm probably going to book it next week. I'd be flying in on Thursday, leaving on Sunday, if that works for you.

    I'm confirmed as fuck, you know that.

    It was from an airport in NJ to DTW, but if I ride into NYC and fly from there, it's cheaper. Might just do that.

    Consider me confirmed. Last year's was epic as fuck. No way I'd miss the sequel.

    Just so you know, Josh (And Scott, plus Julius if he's living with you guys), I'm going to be flying, so you guys will have to figure out different transportation.

    I'd much rather spend the extra little bit and not have to spend 24 hours in a car over the span of a couple days...

    Also, Jon Bloodspray isn't confirmed? What witchcraft is this?
