DtoidMidwest is your #1 resource for NARP planning and general merrymaking in the Great Plains. What constitutes the Midwest, you ask? Well, for our purposes, we're including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, the Dakotas, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. We cast a pretty big net, I know. There's probably more to it than that, but we've never met anyone from anywhere else, so they might as well not exist.
Anyway, if you live near a corn field and want to meet some other Dtoiders, add DtoidMidwest to your friends list, join the Google group, check out our main Forum thread, and start talking to your fellow midwesterners! Rumor has it that we're actually the sexiest regional group, but don't tell DtoidSF. They get jealous.
Hey hey hey! The 3rd Midwest NARP is just two months away! It's time for me to kick the planning into overdrive and get things rolling. I'm still planning on lazer tag, but I want to get a better idea of how many people are coming before I call the place for pricing. To that end, here is the current confirmed list.

As far as traveling goes, I mentioned the Cleveland airport in previous updates. If you haven't already booked a flight, DO NOT book into cleveland. I misjudged the distance, and as I found out through my flight to PAX, a round trip to the airport takes almost five hours, whereas to Detroit and back is under two. If you've already booked into Cleveland I'll bite the bullet and deal with it, but if you have yet to buy a flight, go to Detroit or Toledo.
I'm still working on ideas for the Destructathon, and I think a couple of the rounds will be even more outlandish than last year, including the finale, which I am going to have to build. Yeah, build.
So looking for images of "fucking awesome building shit" led to some pretty horrifying shit, including a ton of gay sex and a skinned goats head in a bucket. Instead, a rainbow.
3rd Destructoid Midwest NARP
Location: Toledo, OH
Dates: June 22nd - 24th
Airports: Toledo (TOL) or Detroit (DTW)
Sleeping room is entirely floor space, so bring a sleeping bag and pillow. If we get too crowded we will have to do tents, or if that isn't your thing there's several hotels within 5 minutes. We aren't there yet though, so I'll hold off on information overload.
Feel free to hit me up with any questions or comments! Email me at jonbloodsprayatgmaildotcom, leave comments below, or in any of the places linked above. Hope to hear from you soon, and can't wait til June!
I was surprised by how much I thought that could be me, aside from that I would never wear those shoes.
