Dtoid Midwest NARP 2011

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 (Jon Bloodspray) 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.


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.
