REMINDER: THIS IS TODAY AT 6:30 PM

 

Date: Sunday, Sep 1st

Time: 6:30 PM

Location: Houlihans (on-site restaurant connected to the hotel) 

Dinner menu:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/dinner/denton

Gluten-sensitive options (not guaranteed gluten-free):   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/gluten-free/denton

Vegetarian options:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/vegetarian/denton

 

Seating is INDOORS

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

It occurred to me out of the blue today that I've completely forgotten to call Houlihans (the on-site hotel restaurant) to see if seating for 30-40 people could be reserved on Sunday. 

 

I did this last year, and from all reports this arrangement was well-received and convenient for everyone. 

 

If there are no strong objections, I plan to call tomorrow (Monday) to see if such can be arranged again. I just hope it's still possible, it's getting a bit close... :wacko:

 

Last year I made the reservation for 6:30pm. For those that went last year, was 6:30pm a good time, or would earlier have been better? My thinking last year was that it would give some time after the auction for people to do some packing first (also gives a buffer in case the auction runs super long). 

 

Looking forward to seeing y'all SOON! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

IT IS DONE   It's very clear they've figured out how to do big-group scheduling by now. Last year I needed to get manager approval, etc. This time, it was quick and easy!    Seatin

I can actually make it this year! Not working a booth or anything else, so my time belongs to me!   well, actually it belongs to @Crowley but you get the idea

Seating will be INDOORS (huzzah!) at 3 tables; 2 long and 1 small. I might be able to get that changed to a bunch of small tables like we had last year if there is a strong preference for it; I'm not sure which arrangement would be better. 

 

Huzzah!

Thank you!!

 

Table arrangement doesn't matter one way or the other to me, so go with whatever is easiest.:winkthumbs:

Might be a little easier to maintain conversations, when small groups of us don't have to drift about to do it. ^^;

 

Very true. The "many small tables" setup they did for us last year was both cozy and I'm sure simpler for the wait staff, but it did rather negate most of the "Large group of us together " sort of feeling. :) 

 

I will make sure they know that checks will be handled individually. I mean, I love all of you, but my wallet would be a wee bit strained by dinner for ~35 people. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

      Hey its buc. I have run games of Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon and the Reaper online conventions. Is there enough interest for me to run Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon in person this year? Would it be better to put my effort into Stargrave and or Frostgrave?

      I was considering running a game at Reapercon this year (assuming it happens). Is there interest in Stargrave as a convention event? Are other people planning on running the game at the convention?

      This one was for a facebook competition about color. The rules were, basically, don't worry about anything else but color. Do something different with color. I started with the idea of a dress palette of blue, teal, purple, and magenta. Once I had those colors in place, it was a matter of incorporating them in different areas of the model. I went with cotton candy roses and a galaxy print on the wings. The galaxy was a matter of stippling the dress colors (plus a bit of white) back and forth until the effect was convincing. Then I masked the body of the model and flicked a stiff brush at the wings to make star patterns. I then went back to the dress colors and stippling to blend them in a bit. This was a blast to paint, because I've never really done anything like this before.
