If I go should I do some of my standup comedy?


That would be great, Jonesy. This year, one of our participants is coming in from England, who also is a comedien. He has offered to perform as well, while the rest of us kick back and have a few cocktails on Saturday night. Maybe you guys could collaberate and do a whole show...wooot.

Well, I guess you have to keep in mind that the people who are doing this are in Pennsylvania. I know if I ran this event I wouldn't want to fly all the way to LA or something to do it (which would probably be a net loss with travel costs and everything).

You guys are completely capable of doing something yourselves if you want.


Actually, the guy who runs it...namely me...lives in New York, about 2 hours away. And, next year I will be running it from Boston. It's no jump across town for me, either. But, that's where the biggest base of players is. Eventually, as it grows I will move it to a new, more accessible location. But, for now it's baby steps. However, last year we did have players in from Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, Massachusettes, Rhode Island, Illinois, and Delaware. And, this year a player is flying in from England. It can't be in everyone's backyard, but people do make the effort.

Greetings all
Time is drawing near. Pretty soon it will be "CRY HAVOC -- and LET LOOSE THE DOGS OF WAR".
Those of you who don't make are missing an excellent time. Last year there were so many CC players it was nice to meet them face-to-face. Am planning to be shining my boots on some butts that weekend.

As far as the kiddie table, we will be bringing Mr Potato Head along with our Go Fish cards

Woot, just 5 days to go. What time is everyone getting there? We'll be there all day on Friday running Sit & Go games for prizes as warm ups for the real deal on Saturday. So, if anyone wants to swing by early and start playing on Friday during the day and evening, feel free.
