Frucon Planning

poll For those thinking of coming: If Frucon 7 is held on Feb 21 instead of Feb 14, would that change make it difficult for you to come?
Yes. It REALLY has to be President's Day weekend
No, I could manage the 21st if necessary
I'm not relevant to this discussion, but I wanna vote!

Good question, AJ :D As the most avid pollsters know, it's all in the way you pose the question. :D

Yeah, so it took me this long to notice this thread. ;)

Ok, I have a new job at a new store just opening up for the first time in New York City and anticipating madness for the first 6 months to a year and i really really really need to let them know as soon as humanly possible beforehand when I will need off from work... how can we get this figured out now?
hkath Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
OK, well, I think it's pretty much obvious that the 21st would be the better weekend. From the poll. Unless we can figure out how to make a better poll somehow. Anyone? Have any ideas?
danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
ok. It's the 21st. I'm deciding this because no one else is.


Now someone make it happen. I mean, I'll help, but someone's got to book the hotel.
danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
Wait... why were we changing it to the 21st?
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
It was initialy because there is an EFO show in Toronto on Friday, Feb. 20th at Hugh's Room.
danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
oh, yeah. Well... lets do that then.
hkath Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
AJ says he just assumed it had been decided for the weekend of the 21st anyway. We told Mike tonight about the Con. He was saying he wanted to talk to EFO about getting his opening spot back when they actually came, and after hearing about Con he said, and I quote, "I'll call them tomorrow." So, it's pretty decided that it's the 21st. And also possibly, a big yay! :D

how much can i expect to pay for frucon (excluding travel)?
Talcott Back · 14 years, 1 month ago
From memory:
In general, the con itself is about $10 CDN
If I remember right, the rooms were about $100 CDN (something like $75 US) per-night, and most people find at least one or two room mates.

Beyond that, it's all up to you. Last year we went out for dinner and breakfast, and then there are any possible concerts. Hugh's Room (which is where EFO is playing if it's that weekend) tends to be cheap to get into, but dinner is slightly on the pricey side (if you feel inclined to order it).

Of course, I might well be wildly off on the prices here, so anyone may feel free to correct the figures. Not counting transportation (which tends to be the big problem) I'd say look at $75 for three nights in a room with two other people, and then anywhere from $50-$100 or more, for meals and spending and such.

Um, see Subject line above :-)

So, at the EFO show at BB Kings on Thursday, there was some discussion and general anticiptaion of Frucon 7.  So, what's up, peeps?  Discuss travel plans?  What you are bringing?  Anything else?

I'll be up on Friday going home on Sunday, although that can be flexible.  I'll be bringing the same equipment as last year.

At this point, with no planning done, it's pretty much out of the question for me.

It's far too late.... I kinda gave up.
danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years ago
No planning? We decided on a date in mid-November.
nate... Back · 14 years ago
But that was it.
Still didn't know if it was happening.

danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years ago
Dude... If I say it's happens, it frikkin' happens.
nate... Back · 14 years ago
yeah, but, gella... I have friends who say the same thing... then it never happens.

danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years ago
Frucon always happens.
A.J. Back · 14 years ago
Yeah, Nate, I thought it was pretty clear that it was happening. At this point all it consists of is a bunch of people going to TO. There is virtually no planning. Yes we have still to rent a room, that is our bad, but we can get a room. That is no problem. It will happen.

How does a poker game back at the hotel sound after the EFO show is done?
Drea Back · 14 years ago
Sounds good to me, provided we're playing with chips and not cash *G*
danced with Lazlo Back · 14 years ago
Poker? POKER?


meh Back · 14 years ago
I might be easily convinced to sit in a few hands -- I'm a terrible player, but I love the game.

What flavor of poker were you thinking of playing?
iPauley Back · 14 years ago
Well, you see, there really is only one flavor... ;)

-- Pauley (Rounders, Celebrity Poker Showdown, and WPT fan ;))
meh Back · 14 years ago
Yes, me loosing.

(And just because you watch more poker than I do does not make you cooler than me. *L*)
iPauley Back · 14 years ago
Now, now, I didn't say that.

And besides, this is really kind of a recent obsession... didn't used to pay this much attention to poker games on TV before.

-- Pauley
meh Back · 14 years ago
Yay! I win!

(Me neither. I discovered it the first summer I worked road crew and hand cable more-or-less predictably.)
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 14 years ago
Speaking of the hotel, has there been any progress in getting the room for the Con itself? Is it safe to assume that it will be at the same place last year? Not that I was there last year, but I've heard from others that it's typically at the same place for the past few years. I'm trying to price hotel and flight package deals and I would like to stay at the same hotel as the Con. Thanks.
